Imagine this, you open up your Instagram app, take a selfie, post it up and see the $$$ rolling into your bank.
This is a typical day in the life of a social media influencer. Unsure of how to do this properly? In comes consultant Triana Lavey.
To be an even better role model to her clients, Triana has undergone plastic surgery to her chin, cheek and nose in order to take the perfect selfie.
Triana Lavey, 38, is a consultant to top social media influencers who earn up to S$240,000 a month posting selfies of themselves on social media.
Triana’s clients are top Youtube and Instagram stars who earn that much by helping to promote big brand names in their social media feed.
Most of her clients can earn anywhere ranging from S$120,000 to S$240,000 a month just by doing this.
The most important aspect of this job is to obviously be able to take good selfies for their social media feeds.
However, Triana has always been unhappy at the way she looks in her own selfies.
Triana revealed that she has always hated her selfies on her Facebook and Instagram due to her “weak chin” amongst other “issues” that she has.
So in order to be a good role model to her clients, she has decided to undergo chin implant, nose job, cheek defining fat graft as well as non-surgical procedures such as Botox and fillers.
She used to untag all of the unglamorous pictures of herself on facebook so she wouldn’t have to see them. She even changed the angle of her face in pictures.
But it was not enough. Cutting back on social media was not an option.
Surgery was the only way, she claimed.
Justifying the need for plastic surgery, she added:
“Your social media presence is just as important as your real-life presence. It’s a legitimate form of promoting yourself.
“Not everyone is born beautiful and if you can get a little help from a nip-tuck then more power to you.”
While she’s ruled out more surgery, Ms Lavey still has regular Botox injections to ensure she looks her best.
“Botox to me is a necessity,” she said. “It’s kind of like in my bills like rent, food, gasoline, medical insurance . . . [then] Botox.”
With the age of social media coming full force onto us, Triana added that she did not care so much about the way she looked.
It was only because there were too many unflattering shots of her cropping up online that she decided to do something about it.
