Woman 15k plastic surgery selfies: 38 y/o woman spends $15k for selfie purposes

A woman spent 15k on plastic surgery for better selfies. Yes, you read that right. On April 27, The Canada Journal reported that 38-year-old Triana Lavey of Los Angeles decided that she wanted to change her face -- so that she would look better in selfie photos. The plastic surgery was done two years ago and lasted two hours and tweaked things on Lavey's face like her chin and her nose -- and Lavey hasn't stopped there. She has had other procedures done since then.

"I now have the face that I always thought that I had. I look like myself, but Photoshopped. Your social media presence is just as important as your real-life presence. It’s a legitimate form of promoting yourself," Lavey explained (via The Canada Journal).

The woman who spent 15k on plastic surgery for selfies wanted to get a flawless look so that her face was perfect (in her eyes) when she was snapping photos of herself. While you might think that this is extreme, it's apparently become a popular phenomenon. People are said to be "more likely" to get plastic surgery because of selfies. Why? Well, think about it. The more selfies people take, the more aware they become of how they actually look -- and sometimes, they don't like what they see.

While a lot of women may opt for Botox (don't worry, Lavey gets injections regularly), some go all out: Nose jobs, face lifts, fat grafting, etc.).

Perhaps the woman who spent 15k on plastic surgery for selfies is crazy -- but if she looks and feels better about herself, maybe it was worth it... what do you think?
