A Brazilian man underwent 10 eye procedures to make himself appear more Asian. The 25-year-old, who goes by Xiahn and asked reporters not to give his real name so that his family would not gain any attention, was inspired to look more Korean after spending time in the country on exchange. The Korea Herald reports that Xiahn was inspired by how common plastic surgery is in the country.
In Xiahn's own words:
Koreans have many surgeries to modify the shape of their eyes and become more like Westerners. It was easy to tell when one of them had done it, walking on the street wearing sunglasses and a surgical mask..
And his transformation is incredible:
I can't imagine how much physical pain all those surgeries must have caused. Still, Xiahn says he is happy with his results and doesn't plan on any more surgery.
