Dr. Robert Sigal, a plastic surgeon from the Washington DC area, says he specializes in making people look good when video chatting on their iPhones.
No joke! Dr. Sigal says, “Patients come in with their iPhones and show me how they look on [Apple's video calling application] FaceTime.”
He explains that “The angle at which the phone is held, with the caller looking downward into the camera, really captures any heaviness, fullness and sagging of the face and neck. People say ‘I never knew I looked like that! I need to do something!’ I’ve started calling it the ‘FaceTime Facelift’ effect. And we’ve developed procedures to specifically address it.”
In other words, when your friends are too embarrassed to tell you that you look like a horse, you can always count on FaceTime to show the world how you really are. And then you can count on Dr. Sigal to make it all go away. Not quite sure if this is a happy ending or not. This world gets stranger by the day.
