Young Man Undergoes Plastic Surgery Transformation After Failing to Find Job Because of His Looks

A 26-year-old Vietnamese man claims to have radically changed his appearance with the help of plastic surgery, after being laughed at during a job interview, because of his looks.

TikTok user Đỗ Quyền has been getting a lot of attention on Asian social media, after posting photos of what he claims is his former self before undergoing nine plastic surgery procedures. Looking at the difference in appearance, it’s easy why people are shocked; the guy looks like a completely different person, from the shape of his face, to his eyes and nose. He claims that he turned to plastic surgery after trying to get a job and being laughed at by the interviewer, because of his unattractive looks.

I think it’s safe to say that if these before and after photos had been shared by someone other than Đỗ Quyền, it would have been hard to believe that they are the same person. In fact, even Đỗ has had to deal with a lot of skepticism from people who just couldn’t believe it was him.

The young man, who currently works as a makeup artist in Saigon, told his TikTok followers that he spent an estimated 400 million dong ($17,400) on nine major plastic surgeries, including rhinoplasty, chin implants, porcelain veneers, lip reshaping, double eyelid surgery and lip implants.

Speaking on why he turned to plastic surgery, the 26-year-old said that his inferior looks made it hard for him to get a job, and after being ridiculed by a potential employer during a job interview, he decided it was time to make a change. His family isn’t exactly well-off, so he had to fund the cosmetic procedures from his own savings.

“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.”

The young makeup artist regularly posts photos of and videos of himself on Instagram and TikTok, including transition clips which emphasize his dramatic transformation. Even though he has his share of critics, Đỗ Quyền has no regrets about turning to plastic surgery, and tells his followers that they should all do whatever makes them feel comfortable.
