Charice Gets Her Face Done for 'Glee'

I can't believe they actually disclosed this.

Okay I'm not going to be a hypocrite and say that I totally condone cosmetic surgery. I even asked my mom to pay for my nose job if I pass the Bar (yes that's what I asked for, not a car, nor a house, I just want my nose fixed!).

I mean I know there was a time that Charice looked pretty unfortunate compared to the celebrities we have here, but hasn't that been fixed with great make-up and a stylist?
She has already gone from this:

 to this:
Is her face something that really can't be remedied by a few strokes of some bronzer and a highlighter? Dr. Vicky Belo apparently thinks not. Her face can be a little chunky, but she's only 18. I honestly don't think her face has developed into its full potential and has to be worked on.

Charice undergoes cosmetic procedures for 'Glee'

MANILA, Philippines – Charice has recently undergone non-invasive cosmetic procedures at the Belo Medical Clinic as part of her preparations for the second season of “Glee.”

It was Dr. Vicki Belo who did the thermage and Botox procedures to the 18-year-old international singing sensation.

While the 30-minute thermage procedure was painless, Charice was in tears as Belo injected Botox to her face, specifically in the jaw area. Charice admitted that she was afraid of needles.

Belo explained that the thermage and Botox were meant to make her “naturally round face” more narrow.

“Charice's face, I’ve been noticing, it's been getting wider… That’s why she looks mataba, although the body is very small, because your face is getting wide. One of the reasons for that, nagchew-chewing gum [siya]… Our chewing muscles, if you chew a lot of gums, it gets bigger,” Belo said.

“The other thing, she really has a natural round face. So what we did, we did thermage, pampaliit ng mukha ‘yon... ‘yong muscle [sa jaw area] na nagbu-bulge, puwedeng i-Botox para maging normal ulit. And then she will not chew gums anymore para maganda na siya sa ‘Glee.’”

The celebrity doctor said the effects of thermage and Botox will be gradual and visible in several months.

She said: “Thermage works in about 3 months. ‘Yong Botox, you will see the difference in about a month.”
‘Glee’ preps

Charice, for her part, said undergoing cosmetic procedures is now paramount especially that she is appearing in one of the biggest shows in the United States.

“Lahat po ng mga tao inaasahan nila, ‘Ano kaya ‘yong itsura ni Charice? Karapat-dapat ba siyang itapat kay Rachel Berry?’ So, siyempre sobrang laki ng pressure,” she said.

She added: “Isa ito sa mga big preparation namin for ‘Glee.’ Gusto ko naman mag-mukhang fresh paglabas ng kamera.”

After the cosmetic procedures, Charice proceeded to Eastwood Park in Quezon City where 5,000 people watched her perform. Among Charice's special guests were Belo and the doctor's rumored boyfriend, Hayden Kho.


  1. Gosh, I'm with you! I don't have anything against cosmetic surgery, but Charice already looks fine. Roundness of face is common in Asians and it doesn't look bad! Look at the other Asian girl on Glee-- she looks fine.

    Oh, and as an aside-- I like your features already, haha. But good luck with future surgery! :D

  2. i've seen international sites that also covered this piece of news, i feel bad that she gets so much hate from all this. hopefully she'll learn from this experience.

    awww thanks!^^

  3. Wow! I read about Charice getting botox but I never saw a photo until now. I thought she was already so adorable when i first saw her on Oprah. Ahh, she's really freaking young to get it =/ I just find it sad how women are so compelled to do these procedures to be someone they're not.

  4. whoops that's not an "after" pic for her botoxed face! that's just her with make-up...but i saw her after picture here:


Anything on your mind? Let me know!:)
