Digital Filters Are Changing How We See Our Own Faces

According to Vancouver facial plastic surgeon Dr. Thomas Buonassisi, filters also influence people in search of cosmetic procedures. “I see people all the time come in, and I’m not sure if this is filter dysmorphia, but they’ll come in, and they’ll show a photo of somebody and say, ‘Well, I really would like to have that nose,’ or ‘I’d like to have that facial shape.’ And I’ll say, ‘You know that’s done with a filter?’ and they’ll go, ‘Well, yeah, but I mean, I still like the way it looks,’” he says.”
