People are getting plastic surgery to look like new AI Lensa portraits, the celebrity surgeon warns
A CELEBRITY surgeon has warned people are now asking for surgery to look like images from a controversial AI app.
You may have seen how Lensa AI’s Magic Avatar feature has taken over social media as the cartoon-like portraits it creates have gone viral.
dr Terry Dubrowwho is known for his surgeries as well as the series “Botched” recently told TMZ that two people have already approached him and asked to be allowed to look like their AI-generated portraits.
Dubrow reportedly told the media that he initially thought the requests were a joke.
When they were later found to be real, he had to turn them down as he didn’t think the results would be possible.
He raised concerns about the Lensa app raising unrealistic expectations for plastic surgery.
Similar concerns were previously raised about Snapchat after making operations look like the app’s filters became a trend.
Celebrities like Sam Asghari and Megan Fox have joined the Lensa AI trend and posted images of their created portraits online.
The app has already caused controversy among cyber security experts, who have warned users to play it safe.
Users have been warned to pay close attention to the terms of service as the app’s maker can “distribute” the end result.
In a lengthy document available online, developer Prisma Labs says it will only do this for “the purpose of operating or improving Lensa”.
The long line explains that by using the app, the company can “reproduce”, “modify” and “distribute” your images “without additional compensation to you”.
It’s actually common for similar services to post conditions for so long.
ESET cybersecurity expert Jake Moore said so MailOnline: “By using Lensa, you grant permission to own the generated photo, which will be placed in a database along with possibly other identifiable information.
“With Lensa, it also seems that users consent to their generated images being shared with third parties, which people often don’t realize is a problem.
“Cyber criminals actively seek such information for illegal use.
“These databases contain valuable information that could potentially be used in conjunction with facial recognition technology, raising concerns about data theft.”
