If you’ve ever wondered how TF everyone on Instagram seems to have the exact same face (big eyes, plump lips, thin nose, pointy chin—all vaguely reminiscent of a Hadid/Kardashian/Jenner mashup), the answer has, historically, been FaceTune. Or one of the hundred other photo-editing apps that can tuck and blur your face into something kinda, sorta resembling your favorite celebrity.
But apparently, people are now taking their filtering one step further and opting for an in-office procedure called “thread lifts” to pinch and pull their IRL faces into the cat eyes of the Instagram world. Basically, a chiller version of the ’90s plastic surgery craze that gave everyone Britney’s nose and Madonna’s face. And I’ve got…some questions.
