The task had been set, I had visited three of London’s best cheese toastie hotspots.

Leopoldine, a 23 years old French law student had breast remodelling for her 18th Birthday. Meghna, a 20 years old Indian student, on the other hand, had breast surgery for medical reasons. These two millennials shared with us the story behind their boob jobs. The culture of social media and selfies has changed people’s perception of their physical appearance.
