Anastasia Pokreshchuk, 32, from Ukraine looks almost unrecognizable from her former self at 26 when she got her first facial injection.
Anastasia Pokreshchuk, from Kyiv, Ukraine, claims to have the biggest cheeks in the world. She achieved this unusual feat after investing nearly £1,500 (or $2,100) on fillers and other cosmetic procedures to give her the protruding cheeks. She has lost track of the number of times she has gone under the knife to get cosmetic surgery. It all started when she got her first facial injections at the age of 26 and she has never looked back. After innumerable procedures, the 32-year-old looks nothing like she did in her 20s. She looks almost unrecognizable from her former self.
The Ukrainian model who has come to be known for her jutting cheeks has a following of over 269k on Instagram. And to all those who were curious about what she looked like before her plastic surgery, she finally revealed her past self at 21. The younger Anastasia was completely different, with her brunette hair, brown eyes, light make-up, and normal-sized cheeks and lips. Now, she sports brightly colored pink hair, thicker eyebrows, dramatic make-up, as well as her signature cheeks and plumper lips. She even urged her followers to choose which one looks better, as per The Mirror.
One comment stated that she looked better in her 20s to which Anastasia simply replied "No." To another person who compared her to a superhero from Marvel with her new look, she seemed to appreciate it, responded with “yes” and a heart emoji. The post has been liked over 16k times. "Beautiful – but in different ways," wrote another person. "In general, the main thing is that you like yourself and feel comfortable. This is your body and your life, which means only you can decide how to look and which was better.” Irrespective of what others think, Anastasia would pick herself now for how she looks now than how she did before.
Anastasia has previously shared how much she loves her new look. "You may think that they are too big but I think that they're a little bit small, I need to refresh them again soon," she had told The Sun last year. Her big cheeks have made her fall in love with the way she looks. "I love them, I want them to look like this, and I'm very happy. I regularly inject other parts of my face myself," she said. "I understand that they look weird for other people but I don't mind." She has been warned about excessive injections by a doctor but she does not want to stop. She told Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield on This Morning that she took to enhancing her face because she "loves this look." She explained, "It can be dangerous but I do it with doctors and now I'm learning cosmetology in an online school."
Talking about herself from before, she said, "I was like a grey mouse. My nose was too big. And now I have big cheeks and big lips it looks OK." She also revealed that she gets a lot of hate messages online. "I've had people tell me I am an ugly b***h and that I should kill myself but when I see it I just laugh it off and ignore it," she said. The cheek fillers gave her confidence. She also revealed that she was too shy to take pictures or post them online before. "I was ashamed of everything; my voice, my appearance. It was really hard work," she said. "I think I was ugly before. My mom thinks that I was naturally beautiful before, but now thinks I look more exotic and my friends say my new appearance is better because before I looked like a grey mouse."
