There’s actually a scientific reason for the front camera fat face we all experience when flipping the camera to selfie mode.

According to a new study published in JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery, your nose gets distorted and appears around 30% bigger in selfies taken close to your face. Plastic surgeon Boris Paskhover told the Guardian, “If the camera point is closer to something that projects out, like your nose, it is going to make everything that is closer to that camera look bigger compared to the rest the face.”

The site published an article entitled “Nasal Distortion in Short-Distance Photographs: The Selfie Effect,” in which a research team proved that a face-on portrait taken from 12 inches away makes the nose’s breadth appear about 30% larger than it really is. He added that that 60 inches “is actually a standard photographic distance — photographers take portraits at 5 feet. When I take pictures patients, I take them at 5 feet.”

So the next time you criticize yourself over a selfie, realize that it’s not your fault. Blame the Iphone.
