The plastic filter on Instagram Stories, called Fix Me is standing out among users of the app. Available in the iPhone (iOS) and Android phones, the curious effect simulates scribbles and notes made by plastic surgeons before performing aesthetic procedures on patients' faces. In a second effect present on the same filter, users can simulate bruises that are common in the postoperative period. For this, Instagram uses face recognition technology to apply effects while capturing a photo or video using Stories mode.
