Millions of people across the globe follow Instagram stars, waiting for their next glamorous selfie or bikini-clad snap.
But a lot of the women haven’t always looked the way they do now and they’ve undergone dramatic transformations and a number of cosmetic procedures.
They say fame changes a person but you might be shocked to see how different some of these Instagram starlets looked.
The Talko created a YouTube video to reveal some before and after shots of the stunners.
Dubbed “Russia’s own Megan Fox” Alena Shishkova is a striking blonde bombshell with piercing blue eyes.
But in older photos she had a much more natural look.
The 23-year-old, who has 5.7million followers, has been under the knife a number of times.
Primping her look with a nose job and boob job as well as lip and cheek fillers, there’s a stark contrast between her youthful glow and her polished persona.
With 5.5million social media fans, Svetlana Bilyalova has amassed a dedicated following thanks to a constant stream of scantily-clad snaps showing off her ripped physique.
But before she became a star she looked significantly different and it’s no secret that she’s enhanced her bust with silicone and had a number of facial procedures.
Health experts are becoming more concerned about the impact of social media on self-esteem and body confidence, especially in teenagers and young women.
Recent research by Dove revealed a staggering 42% of girls between the ages of 13 and 23 felt worse about their appearance due to social media.
And recent research revealed that scrolling through Instagram for just 30 minutes a day can make ladies hate their bodies.
So it’s important to remember that most images taken by Instagram starlets are not reflective of reality, in that they’ve either been Photoshopped or snapped in good lighting and with clever angles.
Body image expert Claire Mysko said: “While social media is not the cause of low self-esteem, it has all the right elements to contribute to it.
“Social media creates an environment where disordered thoughts and behaviours really thrive.”
