It’s not exactly news that social media has caused a spike in the number of people seeking facial (and other types of) surgery to look good.
The pressures of trying to look their best on social media such as Facebook – not to mention dating apps – have resulted in people looking for ways to outshine their contemporaries.
And it’s no surprise that it’s the famous faces, including those of film stars, sports stars and royalty, that we seek to emulate.

For instance, Transformers star Megan Fox’s look isn’t just sought after because of her high cheekbones, slim face and narrow jawline and chin but because, according to a cosmetic surgeon Dr Julian De Silva, it is a perfect diamond shape.
Dr De Silva, from the Centre for Advanced Facial Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery in Hammersmith, said people also see how their appearance changes when they use a picture filter and seek to replicate a certain look using surgery.
