A WOMAN is encouraging girls to stop comparing themselves to others online, claiming that she doesn’t even look like herself after spending £24k to transform her face.
Thanks to Instagram, TikTok, and Pinterest, some might say that beauty standards are higher than ever.
But content creator Mia Dio is taking a stand, telling girls to stop having unrealistic expectations and realise the vast amounts of plastic surgery some people have had.
To prove her point, she listed the various procedures she’s had done since the age of 16 – and claims to have spent more than £24k ($30k).
Detailing how she went from ‘botched to Barbie’, she said: “I actually started really young, guys. I used a fake ID at the age of 16 to get lip filler.
“I remember my parents being like, ‘What is wrong with your face?’ and I would just be like, ‘Nothing, I woke up, my face is just puffy’.”
During the 10-minute YouTube video, Mia (@MiaDio) reveals that she became addicted to lip filler, taking her inspiration from the blown-up lips of Bratz Dolls.
This then prompted her to try and fix her other ‘flaws’.
After she finished high school, Mia went on to have a $5,000 (£4,000) rhinoplasty to slim down her nose.
She has also had numerous rounds of baby botox on her forehead for ‘preventative reasons’, and multiple fox eye lifts, where a surgeon places threads underneath the skin to pull it up and back towards her hairline.
Next – a new set of teeth.
The social media influencer shared that she headed to Bodrum in Turkey, where she got 20 porcelain veneers placed on top of her existing smile.
She said: “So these were my teeth before. They’re not bad, but what I didn’t like about them is that they weren’t big enough, and the bottoms were kind of crooked.”
Mia claims it would have cost her $5.5k (£4.4k), had she not had a hefty influencer discount.
Later in the tell-all video, Mia also shares that she’s had undereye and cheek filler, as well as threads put beneath her cheeks to tighten and lift them.
Her most recent procedure – jaw botox, which she claims helped to slim down her face, and a breast augmentation to increase the size of her previously 32B-sized chest.
But what is her response to those that judge her for the number of times she’s gone under the knife?
“So before you judge me, I don’t really care because based on this video, I am obviously my worst judge.
“You cannot out-judge me more than I have judged myself in this life.”
In another TikTok video, Mia (@notmiadio) is seen responding to a follower’s comment that reads: “I wish I were you so much. Outrageously beautiful.”
She replied: “So when I get comments like this, I get a little sad because the truth is I don’t even look like me…
“My eyebrows don’t even look like this, they’re rock hard right now with eyebrow gel.
“I have falsies, smile, nose job, cheek filler, a whole bunch of s***.
“So don’t wish you were me, honestly. I’m not even me.
“I’m completely comfortable with everything I’ve gotten done though.
“I love the final result, I think it’s pretty. But yeah, social media’s fake. Don’t compare yourself.”
Her revelation attracted plenty of attention online, gaining more than one million likes and 6.6 million views.
In the comments, TikTokkers shared their reactions, with one writing: “I love how honest you are. Thank you.”
“You’re so real for this sis. Not that u were ugly or anything but to say this out loud. A lot of ppl could never,” commented another.
A third added: “You’re real on the inside which is what really matters.”
