WTF: Doctor Performs iPhone 'Facetime Facelifts'

February 28, 2012


A plastic surgeon in Washington DC has started performing a procedure dubbed the "Facetime Facelift" because people don't like the way their double chins look when using the iPhone's Facetime chat. Jesus, THEN JUST CALL OR TEXT.

"Patients come in with their iPhones and show me how they look on [Apple's video calling application] FaceTime," says Dr. Sigal. "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."

Granted you could just not hold the phone below your face, but that would take too much arm muscle. WTF -- Facetime isn't a f***ing fashion photoshoot, people. I seriously doubt your mom cares what your neck looks like. Besides, Facetime isn't about looking good, it's about jamming down your pants to show your girlfriend your privates from work. "So true." So true says the guy with pubes sticking out of his phone case!

Hit the jump for a brief video the doctor explaining the procedure.

Thanks to Erin, who only uses Facetime for what it was intended: showing friends your pets.
