Apparently, people are getting plastic surgery so they can look like Snapchat filters

Some doctors are concerned that people, particularly young adults, are getting more plastic surgery as Snapchat filters and other face-altering apps become the norm to use on social media. Dr. Neelam Vashi, director of the Boston University Cosmetic and Laser Center, tells BuzzFeed that the filters can lead to unrealistic beauty expectations. “I can easily accept not looking like a celebrity, but it’s much harder for me to accept that I can’t look like an enhanced version of myself from a social media filter,” Vashi explains. “It makes it much more close to home.” She goes on to say that plastic surgeons should be “aware of the influence of social media” when speaking to young people about procedures they want done.
