Doctors are reporting a big increase in patients having cosmetic surgery to look like their Snapchat selfies. This new trend is called "Snapchat dysmorphia". This is similar to body dysmorphic disorder, where someone is obsessed with the idea that something is wrong with their body or face and needs fixing. Most plastic surgeons reported an increase in the number of people who want to change their face to look like their cute Snapchat selfies.

Social media apps let people make photos of their face look "cuter". This is making teenagers and young people obsessed with the "perfect" face. Many of the requests are impossible to do surgically. Doctors wrote: "This is an alarming trend because those filtered selfies often present an unattainable look and are blurring the line of reality and fantasy for these patients." This can affect self-esteem. Many people want thinner noses, wider eyes and fuller lips.
