Many celebrities are becoming more open about having cosmetic procedures done. And for those who are considering getting surgery, here's what Dr. Vicki Belo has to say: "If you can do something about it, you feel comfortable, then do it for yourself. You don't do it for other people. Just be happier."
In an interview with GMA Network, Dr. Vicki talked about Filipinos becoming more open to the idea of these procedures. "I am happy that people are more comfortable and more open about cosmetic surgery. Sa TikTok, ang dami naming patients na nagpapakita ng day one, before surgery, after surgery. So proud sila na may pinagawa sila. They are proactive with their lives and, I think, it's very good."
She told GMA, "For me, kapag may problema ka, ayusin mo, 'di ba, if it bothers you...So I love when people are more comfortable that they know it's very safe and that there's nothing wrong with doing it and that's what I want kasi."
Personalities who talked about undergoing beauty procedures include Kryz Uy, who said she got eye surgery. In 2020, singer Janine Berdin confirmed she got a procedure to enhance her nose, saying she was super happy with the result.
More recently, in 2021, Alex Gonzaga talked about the procedures she got at Dr. Vicki Belo's clinic: "Nagpa-thread lift ako at saka lips. Don’t judge me. But very slight lang kasi ayaw ni doktora. Pero gusto ko talaga yung parang patusok. Ayaw niya. Very sweet lang."
