Exploring extreme plastic surgery and each individual procedure, exploring the impact on the body and mind. Plastic surgery is nothing new however procedures have developed and have become more common and easily accessible to a wider audience. However social media has its own part to play with the rise in younger individuals having a desire and goal to look like a celebrity or filter on Instagram and Snapchat. Exploring how the body beautiful isn’t perfect and how a natural body and face is the new beautiful. Imagery shows the harmful impacts plastic surgery procedures can have on the body. Looking into procedures I will show lip, nose, chest and butt procedures to the extremes as well as general procedures where someone alters their bodies over time. The idea of showing such extreme plastic surgery and the harmful impacts of procedures is to highlight the seriousness of procedures for non-medical reasons and the dangers if not carried out professional. There is a serious message within the imagery highlighting how you look is beautiful and unique.
