This is a digital-only ThinkIn.
The new frontiers of cosmetic surgery include jaw chiseling to adjust your face to match your favourite Instagram filter, visiting a “smileologist” to get the perfect teeth and popping out for a non-invasive procedure in your lunch break. Is widespread vanity really as rampant as all these new treatments suggest, or is this sort of cosmetic procedure still the preserve of a wealthy few? Is over-use of digital photography causing low-level body dysmorphia in lots of us? Are we losing our grip on reality when it comes to the way we look?
