ICYMI, 22-year-old fashion influencer Aika Agustin got a nose and chin surgery last month and did a "face reveal" on social media a month after her operation.
On Valentine’s Day, Aika posted a side profile of her new look on Instagram with the caption, “new look, same old me.”
Aika’s specific medical procedures involved alarplasty, tip plasty, and chin enhancements. In her latest YouTube video, she walked her subscribers through her whole plastic surgery journey, from finding a doctor to post-surgery care.
But first, she clarified that she decided to get a nose job because she wanted to, not because someone pressured her. “Nobody in my life ever told me that my nose was big or that I had to change something about my nose. This was all on me,” she said, recounting that she had been wanting to get a nose job since she was in high school.
“I wasn’t trying to hide [my nose], I was fine with how it looked like. I just wanted it to be enhanced and to look better,” she added.
Aika explained that she did a lot of online research pre-surgery to ensure that she wouldn’t regret the decision. She eventually found her doctor through a Facebook group called Rhinoplasty Diary Manila.
“I picked my doctor because he was good with making big noses smaller. As you can see, my nose right now is not really tall na matangos, I just wanted it to be the right size,” she said. As per her doctor's recommendation, she also decided to get chin enhancements to refine her jawline.
During the surgery itself, Aika shared that she felt very nervous. Fortunately, she didn’t feel any pain at all thanks to the anesthesia.
Post-operation, however, Aika felt restless because her healing process was slower than expected and there were red bumps around her nose. But after several prescriptions and consultations, her doctor reassured her that this kind of swelling was just a normal part of her healing process.
Lastly, Aika also thanked her subscribers for supporting her amidst all the challenges she went through. “I was honestly so nervous during that time, so thank you guys for being the best internet friends ever,” she said.
