Plastic surgery is used to improve one’s appearance. It is a measure to rectify Nature’s wrongs. But it is not foolproof and has its own limitations and side-effects. It may even lead to disastrous effects such as in the case of this young Chinese vlogger who had botched facial plastic surgery and took her own life following it.

China and its era of increasing internet stars and users
China is also seeing a rise in the number of internet users. These are mostly young people. They are using social media to share their good looks. If there is some flaw, they want to correct it via the plastic surgery which is a booming trade in China now. The rising income of people has made it easy for them to seek plastic surgery to enhance their look.
Video logging is fast growing. Short videos of less than 60 seconds duration are increasingly shared on the social media. They may be funny or for good looks or for some message. Whatever the reason, more and more young people are seeking the virtual world for their happiness.
Video hosts are also on the rise and are called “wang hong” in the Chinese language, or simply internet celebrities. There are also female vloggers who are rising and making an impact on the internet. They garner a large fan following and support from the increasing number of single men in China.
