After being laughed at during a job interview because of his appearance, a 26-year-old Vietnamese man claims to have radically changed his appearance with the help of plastic surgery.
After posting photos of what he claims are his former self before undergoing nine plastic surgery procedures, TikTok user Đỗ Quyền has gained a lot of attention on Asian social media. It’s easy to see why people are surprised by the difference in appearance; the man appears to be a completely different person, from the shape of his face to his eyes and nose. He claims he turned to plastic surgery after failing to land a job interview and being mocked by the interviewer due to his unattractive appearance.
If these before and after photos had been shared by someone other than Đỗ Quyền, I believe it would have been difficult to believe they were the same person. In fact, even Đỗ Quyền has had to deal with a great deal of skepticism from those who couldn’t believe it was him.
The young man, who currently works as a makeup artist in Saigon, revealed to his TikTok followers that he had nine major plastic surgeries, including rhinoplasty, chin implants, porcelain veneers, lip reshaping, double eyelid surgery, and lip implants, for a total of 400 million dong ($17,400).
The 26-year-old explained that his poor appearance made it difficult for him to find work, and that after being mocked by a potential employer during a job interview, he decided it was time to make a change. His family isn’t wealthy, so he had to pay for the cosmetic procedures out of his own pocket.
“The first time I came home after plastic surgery, my parents did not recognize me, Đỗ Quyền said. “I expected as much, but I still could not hold back my tears.”
On Instagram and TikTok, the young makeup artist regularly posts photos and videos of himself, including transition clips that emphasize his dramatic transformation. Despite his detractors, Đỗ Quyền has no regrets about his decision to undergo plastic surgery and advises his followers to do whatever makes them feel comfortable.
“Always be strong and find the beauty that you are most confident in,” he said. “The standard of beauty for me is that when you look at yourself in the mirror and you feel satisfied and confident.”
