Social media is now an indispensable part of our lives. Social media, which shows its influence from our shopping preferences to the places we go, has also been playing a role in aesthetic preferences in recent years. The effect of social media on aesthetic perception is similar to the effect of once popular magazines and programs.

Turkey Medicals Co-ordinator, “Medicalpark Antalya Hospital ENT Specialist Op. Dr. who says that social media increases the interest in rhinoplasty. We talked about this issue.” was said.

Social media is creating a world where it is possible to obtain more comprehensive information than in the past. While new aesthetic trends are forming rapidly, people may want to have a nose similar to the nose type of people they like. But the best rhinoplasty is the one that is planned specifically for the person!

20 Years ago, aesthetic operations were considered taboo, while in people’s minds they were limited to breast augmentation and a crooked nose, people’s view of this issue was different. Nowadays, we resort to aesthetic operations much more often for a healthy and comfortable life, and most importantly, we do not hide that we have had aesthetic operations as in the past. Many people we follow on social media comfortably tell and share the aesthetic operations they have had. This situation is reflected in the fact that people normalize aesthetic operations more than ever and make the decision to have them done much easier when they feel the need.


People review photos to share on social media after every selfie they take and pay more attention to the disproportions on their faces. This creates an important impact on the emergence of awareness about aesthetics.

As we face ourselves more, that is, as we take more photos and start sharing more, the time that aesthetic operations stay on the agenda increases. Having a rhinoplasty with the influence of social media is at the forefront because the nose is an organ that directly affects the appearance of the face. Especially in close-range face-focused shots such as selfies, the priority decision is made on the side of the nose, depending on the prominence of the nose shape.
