EM TV: Why cosmetic procedures are becoming more popular amongst young people
This episode of EM TV is about the cosmetic surgery industry and the standardisation of cosmetic procedures.
Communication scientist Anne-Mette Hermans (ESHCC) researched the marketing of cosmetic procedures in London and obtained her PhD on the subject in 2019. In EM TV she talks about the normalisation of cosmetic procedures, especially amongst young people. Do we have to worry? What role does social media play in this story? And do Snapchat filters make us undergo a procedure more quickly?
