Plastic Surgery: Los Angeles Woman Gets Plastic Surgery to Look Better in Selfies

On April 24, 2014 Time Magazine reported on a Los Angeles woman who underwent plastic surgery so that she could look better on Facebook and during her Skype chats. Dr. Simon Ourian of Epione Medical Corporation comments on the article and the pressure to look good at all times.


Beverly Hills, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 05/09/2014 -- According to an April 24, 2014 article posted on Time Magazine’s website, a Los Angeles talent manager underwent multiple plastic surgery procedures because she wanted to improve her online appearance. As reported, the woman had cheekbone and chin augmentation surgery, as well as a rhinoplasty and fat grafts. (see: goo.gl/h8b3WC)

“I’ve chosen to devote my professional life to helping people feel better about the way they look and feel about themselves,” says Dr. Simon Ourian, Medical Director of Epione Beverly Hills, “and I’m still a little taken aback by this story. I have patients that make their living in front of the camera or in the public eye, and they have a professional obligation to maintain their appearance. It seems most everyone feels the need to be ‘camera-ready’ now.”

The woman highlighted in the report stated that she wasn’t happy with the way she looked in the Skype chats she uses to promote her business interests. Though she’d previously used filters to touch up her photos, she felt that going under the knife would bring about the real physical transformation she desired.

“At Epione, we offer non-surgical options for chin and cheek augmentation that can achieve results similar to those realized by the woman in the article without the attendant risks of traditional surgery,” says Dr. Ourian.
