Recently, a Vietnamese man revealed that he turned to plastic surgery for a dramatic transformation after he was laughed at for the way he looked
TikTok user Do Quyen has been getting a lot of attention on social media after posting photos and transition videos of what he claims he looked like before he underwent surgery.
According to Vietnamese news portal Kenh14, the 26-year-old told his TikTok followers that he changed his appearance because he was previously called unattractive at job interviews and he found it difficult to find work.
Looking to change his life, Quyen signed up for several cosmetic procedures
The young man shared that he spent more than VND400 million (RM70,000) on nine major plastic surgeries to achieve his new look.
Among the surgical enhancements Quyen went for include rhinoplasty, nose fillers, chin implants, porcelain veneers, lip reshaping, lip implants, double eyelid surgery, and eye enlargement.
Quyen added that his family was not well-off, so he funded the surgeries all on his own
The 26-year-old, who now works as a makeup artist in Ho Chi Minh City, frequently tells his 90,000 followers on TikTok to do whatever makes them happy
While he does have critics, Quyen said he has no regrets turning to plastic surgery and regularly posts photos of himself to emphasise his dramatic transformation on social media.
"Always be strong and find the beauty that you are most confident in," he said.
"The standard of beauty for me is when you look at yourself in the mirror and can feel satisfied and confident."
