ANTIFILTER

I’ve always been fascinated by plastic and cosmetic surgery.

My research has shown that social media is making us more eager to get elective surgery. This is particularly the case for the younger generation representing the main share of users on platforms like Instagram, which only show pictures of perfection. Girls and boys as young as 16 are requesting filler treatments at clinics, although they have to wait until they’re 18 to be eligible for the procedure.

I’ve made a magazine interviewing people who’ve had cosmetic surgery, talking about their positive, negative and even emergency experiences. Complementing the text is a fancy photo report. This magazine is a way for people considering elective surgery (aged 16 – 30) to get up to speed about what to expect from the various procedures and treatments. They can also sign up for a range of lectures and ask questions. The essential thing to do is to think before applying for a treatment, and of course, to go to the right clinic or doctor.
