Your selfies might not always feel like they look like you. If that has you upset about your appearance, you’re not alone: in 2017, 55 percent of facial plastic surgeons reported seeing patients who wanted surgeries to help them look better in selfies. But that concern is often due to a visual distortion effect that makes noses look wider as a camera gets closer to a subject.

Smartphones are everywhere, and they’re playing an increasingly large role in how we perceive ourselves physically. Researchers are now trying to figure out how to design a front-facing camera that avoids that unflattering effect.
