The squeeze to fit the unattainable body standards set by society has turned the world towards cosmetic surgery for an answer. Social pressure has hit the population the world over, forcing people to inject hazardous fluids into their bodies in order to make that "all-important" change.
And no one understands this better than Instagram influencers. With the spotlight looming over them, it can become hard to maintain a fanbase without meeting expectations.
Sophie Elise is just one of the many that regretted the decisions she made when she was younger. She tells her story about living a life with fake implants that have ruined her mental and physical health.

And being an influencer means one thing...
And you can bet ten dollars that it's not what you think it is.

You've heard of the Kardashians, right?

And it's these influencers that have promoted it...
Now, she has chosen to speak out against it.
The influencer decided it was one of the worst decisions she has ever made.
Everyone does it, right?
The second alarm bell should have been when the doctors didn't even provide a consultation beforehand.
And Sophie was less than happy with the overall result.
"I'm tired of having an a** which doesn't look natural."
This is usually the outcome of "cheap" cosmetic surgery.
She hopes others will think twice before going under the knife.
Just a couple of weeks ago, a cheap cosmetic surgery turned fatal...

And upon hearing the news, Twitter decided the need for artificial beauty needs to be better controlled.
This is really heartbreaking. “Cheap” & “popular on Instagram” should never be the criteria you look for when choos… https://t.co/HF0eKR411r— Ruqaiya (@Ruqaiya)1535543857.0
