"… her classmates still made fun of her appearance. 'Some boys in my class would always laugh at me: They’d call me "tiny eyes,"' she says. After the surgery, reactions were different. Her university teachers liked her, despite giving her failing grades in some classes. Whenever she was lifting heavy luggage, someone would help. 'People always display better attitudes and more patience to prettier people,' Fan says… Plastic surgeon Shi Chengfang [says] that since about 2010, the 'internet celebrity face' has been extremely popular among younger customers. (Patients who are over 35 years old prefer anti-aging surgeries for a more natural look.) But, he says, since 2016, fatigue with the abundance of such wanghong faces in the entertainment industry has given rise to a more diverse range of 'templates,' such as the 'supermodel face,' with longer eyes and a more chiseled jawline, or the 'world-weary…..
