As media has shifted from broadcast to social, so too have our perceptions of beauty and self-confidence. Plastic surgeons are seeing younger patients, and the patients aspire to look more like their own highly curated selfies, rather than a celebrity or model. What does this say about a culture that is increasingly focused on documenting self image?
This week on 2 Girls 1 Podcast, Alli and Jen (actors who perform weird internet stuff on stage) speak to Marla Frezza, who modified her nose to match her own selfie filters. They’re also joined by producer Maria Chiu, who documented Marla’s journey in a video for Broadly/VICE, titled “I Got Surgery to Look Like My Snapchat and Facetune Selfies.”
