OMG! Meet The Teen Who Spent Millions On Plastic Surgery Just To Look Like An Instagram Filter [Video]

Levi Jed Murphy recently underwent a lip lift, temporal brow lift, and Canthoplasty to alter the shape of his eyes and bring him closer to the ideal Instagram look he covets.
Originally from Norwich, the young social media star moved to London to be with his boyfriend last year and has recently unveiled his new look to his hundreds of thousands of followers.
The 23-year-old, who also gets fillers regularly and previously had Rhinoplasty, told Barcroft TV: “Instagram had a filter that made your face look like plastic surgery. When you’re about to take a picture and the filter comes off and you see the actual face, it’s kind of busted.
Levi, who has spent around £20,000 on procedures, says he doesn’t regret any of the work he’s had done and will continue to have surgery regardless of any negative feedback he receives.
And having racked up 50,000 followers on Twitter and more than 500,000 followers on Facebook, there was plenty of opinions directed his way once Levi unveiled his latest transformation.
The young Londoner has been active on social media since he was 15, and has grown somewhat immune to the negativity and judgement.
Despite the judgement, Levi maintains that social media is a good thing, and remains grateful that he’s been able to use it to reach so many people.
But it’s not just social media that has influenced Levi to change his appearance. As a teen he dealt with ongoing insecurity about his nose.
Levi said, “I've always been paranoid that I've got a big nose,” he said. ”I thought once I had the money, I might as well just change it. 
Gruelling recoveries aside, Levi says all his procedures have been worth it and he has a list of further surgeries he wants in the future.
As well as a Brazilian butt-lift, he is hoping to get a second nose job as well as fat pads in his cheeks to make his fillers more permanent. 
On top of that he is hoping to have his ears pinned back and will soon be having work done on his teeth.
After getting his facial surgery, Levi recently returned to Norwich to show his mum, Tracey, for the first time.
And while Tracey always loved her sons’ face as it was, she accepts his desire to change his look – even if she isn’t entirely happy with it.
Tracey said, “I like his fillers, they suit him. The eye surgery that Levi’s had is not as bad as I thought it was going to be, but I can’t say I'm happy with him having it done.
“It’s just a surprise because obviously when he was a child I didn’t think for one minute he’d grow up wanting all these surgeries and fillers.
“I'd rather Levi didn't get any more surgery to be honest. But he's got his own mind so if he wants it done he'll have it done.”
For now, Levi is focused on making more videos for his followers and continuing to transform his appearance – even if his loved ones accept him the way he is.
Levi’s internal happiness certainly seems to gain a boost from changing his outward appearance, which ultimately equals a positive for the young influencer, who manages to maintain a fairly level-headed view of the whole experience.
“When I look back on pictures of me before I had any surgery, I look completely different,” he said. “It does not even look like me, so I guess I feel thankful that I feel like I've improved myself.
“I wouldn't necessarily say I was striving for perfection because I know that a lot of people will look at me and not find me insanely attractive and some people might think I'm not unattractive. 
“It's more like something that I'm happy with. I'm not even necessarily saying I'm completely improving myself but I'm happy with my appearance.”
