From being a young woman who was not confident enough to even take a selfie, Lin now proudly strikes a pose for the camera after having a life-changing makeover.
In the first episode of “Let Me In Thailand,” the Thai edition of the popular Korean TV show, Wongtawan “Lin” Panuprateep was selected as the first woman to be flown to South Korea for plastic surgery.
Lin, 23, had dropped out of university as her family only has a monthly income of THB5,000 and could not afford her tuition. Lin tried to find a job, but no one gave her a chance.
“I want a good job. I want to give my mom a better life,” she said.
Maybe she needed to make a change, she thought.
After being chosen as a contestant for the show, surgeons performed extensive work on Lin’s entire face, with her jawline the biggest challenge for doctors. Lin underwent teeth, jaw, eye, and nose surgeries before completing the process with Botox and forehead fillers, transforming her into a new person.
“I like it a lot,” Lin said when she saw her face for the first time. “I’m overwhelmed. It’s the best opportunity I’ve been given in my life.”
