People Are Getting Plastic Surgery to Look Like Snapchat Filters

So . . . is it possible to have a plastic surgeon make it look like you’re permanently vomiting up rainbows?

 

 

According to three dermatologists from the Boston University School of Medicine, there’s been a big increase in the number of people who are getting plastic surgery to look like SNAPCHAT FILTERS.

 

 

If you’re not familiar, Snapchat lets you alter your pictures or video with different “filters” that add special effects to your face . . . like making your eyes huge or making you look like a glowing angel or whatever.

 

 

The doctors say, quote, “‘Snapchat dysmorphia’ has patients seeking out cosmetic surgery to look like filtered versions of themselves, with fuller lips, bigger eyes, or a thinner nose.

 

 

“This is an alarming trend, because those filtered selfies often present an unattainable look and are blurring the line of reality and fantasy for these patients.”

 

 

They say it’s definitely a sign of a big change . . . people used to look at celebrities for inspiration for plastic surgery, now they’re looking to Snapchat filters.
