We live in a world and society where the outer appearance is essential. Women are told from a young age through puberty and the rest of their lives they need to make sure that their outer appearance is flawless. This is where the media and plastic surgery step in. The media present women with an ideal female body, which they must achieve in order to be happy, self-confident and involved in the society. One of the most important roles in shaping the ideal of a woman's body today are social networks and celebrities on social networks. Kim Kardashian, one of the most famous social network stars, became the symbol of the ideal body for millions of women worldwide. And plastic surgery ensures that this ideal is achieved. The goal of the thesis was to address the ideal of female perfection and find the reasons for plastic surgery, the influence of the media, especially social media, and the role of stars on the development of body ideals. In accordance with that, I carried out a qualitative survey that included an interview with eight women who had plastic surgery. With the research I found that plastic surgeries improve female self-confidence, social networks are not a key player in shaping today's image of an ideal female body, and women do not believe that Kim Kardashian’s body is ideal. However, I was not able to confirm or deny whether Kim Kardashian is a good role model for girls.
