Implications - Fashion brands are mimicking the look and after effects of plastic surgery with over the top portrayals of cosmetic procedures. This shift towards boldly exploring the topic represents a sense of self-awareness in the fashion industry. By acknowledging the role of the industry plays when it comes to establishing unrealistic beauty standards, these brands are able to better relate to consumers.
