When it comes to taking photos, a lot of people have their secrets, whether it is lighting or colors, everyone has an angle where they think they look the best.  Now some people are taking their selfies to a new extreme.

The cosmetic surgery industry has seen a recent boost due to the increasing popularity of self portraits.

With people posting more pictures on their social media pages, they are becoming more concerned with the way they look.

A study by the American Academy of Facial Plastic Reconstructive Surgery reveals that one in three facial plastic surgeons say they have seen an increase in surgical requests among people wanting to improve their look on social media.

According to the study,  there was a 10 percent increase in nose jobs from 2012 to 2013.

But people are not stopping at nose jobs, hair transplants and even eyelid surgeries have also increased since 2012.

Looks like the plastic surgery industry owes their new surge of business all to social media sites.
