(WSMV) According to writings of three dermatologists from the Boston University School of Medicine, an increasing number of patients are seeking out Snapchat-inspired plastic surgery.
“Snapchat dysmorphia has patients seeking out cosmetic surgery to look like filtered versions of themselves instead, with fuller lips, bigger eyes, or a thinner nose,” they write. “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.”
