The latest episode of Degrassi TV discusses whether or not one should alter their appearance in photos, or “selfie surgery.”

Is it okay? For the most part I think it’s fine as long as you’re not going to extreme measures to drastically alter your appearance for the sake of pleasing others. I’ve put thought into how I present myself in pictures a lot as have so many others, and it’s not just about using Photoshop to hide blemishes or using the “liquify” feature to tighten up curves. It could be as simple as using an Instagram filter, or angling the camera and framing one’s face/body a certain way in order to present yourself in what you consider to be an optimal position.
