People have been wanting to go under the knife for decades, now it is going a bit overboard on social media?
Instagram now has a ton of filters aimed towards plastic surgery. However, the social media platform says enough is enough!
And, they have decided to remove all filters that relate to cosmetic procedures.
These filters if used will transform your face into a different look featuring things like bigger fuller lips, a slimmer nose, higher cheeks and so much more.
This filter definitely could have a negative effect on the youth of today as social media is a powerful tool that they abide by when it comes to the “standard” of beauty and living.
Daniel Mooney, the creator of one of the facelift filters says that he had no intention of using it to make people think differently about themselves.
“My intention was not to show a ‘perfect’ image, as you can see in the final result. Perfection is over-rated. I can see where Instagram is coming from…”
“…but for as long as some of the most-followed accounts on Instagram are of heavily surgically ‘improved’ people, removing surgery filters won’t really change that much.”
When using his filter which was called “fix me” users would see graphics on their faces. This is as if a cosmetic surgeon marked them before a plastic surgery procedure. Instagram has removed all of Mooney’s filters as of now!
