Rise in numbers having Cosmetic Surgery to look like their filtered Instagram self

It used to be that patients would turn up to consultations and request procedures to make them look like their favourite celebrities. Nowadays, prospective Cosmetic Surgery patients are increasingly seeking to look like one person – themselves.

Due to the popularity of Instagram, many people are so impressed with their filtered selfies that they’re choosing to look like that in real life.

Central Jersey based Geri Hubner explained how using photo filters on Instagram helped her remove signs of neck wattle. She said: “I wanted to look like that all the time.”

The 56-year-old decided to have a Neck Lift and hasn’t looked back since.

Queens-based Nancy Chacon underwent Laser treatment to give her the clear complexion she became so accustomed to on her Instagram photos. She said: “So many people asked, ‘What are you doing to your face? You look so young!’

“It was worth it,” she added.

Cosmetic Surgeon Dr Andrew Miller explained the new trend: “Clients are not trying to look like a whole different person anymore. We always stress taking what you have naturally and making it better. Otherwise, people can look really weird, with lips that are too big, a jawline that’s unreal.”
