Social media star Marlou Arizala has become the talk of the town after undergoing a plastic surgery procedure that took one month to heal before he could finally reveal his new face.
Prior to the surgery, Marlou was an easy target for his haters, who mocked him online for his looks.
But after the procedure, the former Hasht5 member ultimately said goodbye to his old self and assumed a new persona by calling himself Xander Ford.
Despite the successful procedure, the whole issue generated a ton of controversy mainly because of the fact that Marlou was apparently bullied to the point that he had to go under the knife just to appease his bashers.
This isn’t the first time that someone's facial reconstruction or plastic surgery has made major headlines. Below is a list of other incidents that stole the spotlight:
The Kapamilya actress became the talk of the town after both Arci’s fans and bashers apparently noticed a sudden change in her facial features, particularly in her nose and lips.
Arci addressed the rumors with a cryptic answer, where she neither confirmed nor denied going under the knife. She made it clear though that she wasn’t against the whole idea of going through plastic surgery.
Last March, Shiryl went through various cosmetic procedures including liposuction, and both breast and butt enhancement at a clinic in Mandaluyong City.
Unfortunately, the 29-year-old businesswoman never got to see her new look after she succumbed to multiple organ failure during the operation.
The story of Alvina, Maui, and Nina from Agusan del Norte made headlines this year after their 9-year plight went viral on social media and was picked up by major TV networks.
Like many beauty fans, the three friends wanted to enhance their facial features but couldn’t afford the procedures offered by legitimate clinics so they opted for a cheap option that cost them P500 each. Things looked promising at first but after six months, their cheeks started to bloat after getting irritated by the petroleum jelly that was injected into their faces.
