As someone who has been bullied for his looks since childhood, Kenjie Salamanca has made it his life mission to improve himself once he gets the chance. And so, after he was able to secure a job and save money, he embarked on his dream makeover through the means of plastic surgery, pronto.
All in all, the 26-year-old underwent three rhinoplasty sessions, two chin augmentation procedures, dimple creation, and, lip reshaping. (These, plus braces and eyebrows micro-blading.) It didn’t matter if he has spent a whopping P350,000 for the surgeries, no. What’s important for Salamanca is to leave his ugly past behind and continue in life along with this much better version of himself.

However, in an interview with Jessica Soho, Salamanca admitted that, even now, the bullying hasn’t stopped.
“Kapag nakakabasa ako ng mga negative comments na, ‘Hindi mo madadala ‘yan hanggang hukay mo. Lalabas pa rin tunay mong itsura sa anak mo. Meron pa dun na minumura nila ‘ko, na bakit daw hindi ako nakuntento sa binigay sa ‘kin ni Lord. Para sa ‘kin, hindi niyo kasi alam yung pinagdaanan ko.”
