"God has given you one face, and you make yourself another". When famed genius playwright Shakespeare penned these words he could hardly imagine what he said then would resonate so positively with today's Chinese young women. Guangxi's first "man made beauty" Mo Feilan made a new face for herself. She might not be the first person in Guangxi to undergo plastic surgery, but she was the first to publicly admit that she had the facial makeover.
Mo said candidly that she has a boyfriend and that after her plastic surgery, her boyfriend has clearly treated her better. There could be two reasons for this, one is that the plastic surgery has improved her appearance; two is that she has gained a measure of fame after the successful operation and has become a public figure. This would have made her boyfriend a bit more eager to please her, accounting for his being nicer to her.
Dr. Jiao Junguang of Nanning "Beauty Focus" Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Center did the plastic surgery on Mo. According to the doctor, after Mo successfully entered the Guangxi "man-made beauty" contest, from this March to June, his team has completed seven plastic surgical procedures to remake her lower chin, tightened her facial skin, created double eye folds, augmented her breasts and liposuction with the purpose of making Mo into Guangxi's number one man-made beauty.
Mo explained why she publicly admitted to the media the entire plastic surgery procedures she has been doing. She said she wanted to become the public image spokesperson for "Beauty Focus" and one of the terms was that she must openly face the media.
