Can you believe that these ten local stars are unapologetically surgically enchanced?
Filipinos aren’t comfortable in matters of cosmetic surgery. People are usually judgmental towards people especially celebrities who have undergone surgical enhancements. But who can blame them for wanting to enhance themselves to look even better?
Here are some of the celebrities who are retokados/retokadas and have spoken freely about it.
1. Ruffa Gutierrez
Actress and model Ruffa Gutierrez has undergone ‘BodyTite’ from Belo Medical Group. It is a semi-invasive procedure that tightens the skin while sucking out the fat. According to the actress, her mother urged her when she saw how it worked wonders for Jinkee Pacquiao.
2. Jinkee Pacquiao
Just like Ruffa, the wife of boxing sensation Manny Pacquiao had undergone liposuction as well. Jinkee had ‘Smart Lipo’ after giving birth to her daughter Princess then also availed of Belo’s ‘BodyTite.’
3. John ‘Sweet’ Lapus
In an interview with DJ Mo Twister back in 2006, John Lapus known as ‘Sweet’ admitted to being retokada. When pressed about it, he answered that he had “Fake chin, Liposuction, Lower Lip” done.
4. Lani Misalucha
Singer Lani Misalucha had no qualms about sharing that she had her teeth, nose, and eye bags fixed. She may have had her external features done, but nothing can truly alter her powerful voice.
5. Gretchen Barretto
In 2009, actress Gretchen Barretto had her lips done. From thin lips to pouty and kissable ones, which according to her was not a cheap procedure.
6. Empress Schuck
Two years ago, Host Boy Abunda interviewed young actress Empress Schuck on his show.

Her main insecurity was her large thighs, and now thanks to the procedure, she’s happy with the results.
7. John Estrada
43-year-old actor John Estrada isn’t shy to admit that he is a retokado after having undergone butt-enhancing procedure by Belo as well. Now, his butt is perfectly round and his self-confidence is in an all time high.
8. Pops Fernandez
Another star that had her lips like the Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie is Pops Fernandez. She admitted to having her lips plumped because she’s obsessed with her lips.
9. Christopher De Leon
Can you believe that veteran actor Christopher De Leon is turning 60 this year? He doesn’t look his age and that’s because of Dr. Vicky Belo’s help again. He had his eye bags removed, laser blepharoplasty, and had non-invasive face lift.
10. Kris Aquino
