Instagram has decided to ban all augmented reality apps that make it look like you've had plastic surgery or are about to... because of the damage it's doing to our mental health.

We speak to an expert in the plastic surgery profession who says people are now bringing in altered photos of themselves asking for doctors to help them look like their filter perfection.
