MANILA, Philippines -- Angeline Quinto is set to undergo several cosmetic procedures on her face and parts of her upper body starting Saturday, according to celebrity dermatologist Vicki Belo.
The 23-year-old Kapamilya singer, who rose to fame after winning the talent search "Star Power" in 2011, said she plans to undergo procedures on her nose, eyes, cheeks, armpits and back.
The "ASAP" mainstay, who previously admitted to having regular glutathione treatments, said she has been meaning to have her nose "fixed" after getting comments on its supposed "disproportionate" size in comparison to her face.
"Matagal ko nang sinasabi na sana kung may chance mapagawa ko 'yung ilong ko," Quinto told reporters at the sidelines of her recent pictorial as an endorser of Belo's chain of beauty clinics.
"Kasi dati pa naman marami nang nagsasabi sa akin na parang hindi raw proportion 'yung ilong ko sa mukha, kasi medyo malaki. So ngayong mas pumayat ako, mas lalong napansin ng mga tao na malaki pala 'yung ilong ko talaga," she said.
According to Belo, whose clinic will perform the planned procedures on Quinto, the singer's nose will be "enhanced" to address its "Pinocchio tip."
"Most Pinoys nagpapagawa dahil kulang 'yung bridge. Pero 'yung kay Angeline, mataas 'yung bridga niya. Ang problema natin 'yung tip, masyado mahaba, parang kaunting Pinocchio type," she said.
Belo said she will also do a procedure on Quinto's eyes, so they will look less "sad."
"The other thing naman, 'yung mata mukhang sad. Ang tawag diyan ay ptosis. 'Yung lid medyo mababa... it's also hard for her to put makeup and sometimes mukhang heavy 'yung lid.
"So ang gagawin, 'yung magmukha siyang bright-eyed at para may kaunting fold siya, so pag naglalagay siya ng makeup, hindi siya mahihirapan," the celebrity doctor said.
Another procedure on Quinto's face will be done on her cheeks, according to Belo. "Kaunting filler lang, kasi may pagka-flat lang siya dito (pointing to Quinto's left cheek), para magkaroon ng mas malaman. Kasi maganda na 'yung cheekbone pero hindi pantay 'yung right and left niya," she said.
The said procedures are planned to be performed on Saturday, Belo said.
Aside from the planned "enhancements" on her face, Quinto said she had approached Belo to perform liposuction on her back.
"Lumapit sana ako kay Mommy Vicki para sana sa lipo sa likod, kasi madalas akong nagsusuot ng gown na fitted, kaso meron paring baby fats. So nahihiya ako, so kailangan ko ipatanggal talaga," she said.
She also openly shared that she has been getting botox treatments for her armpits to address excessive perspiration. "Madalas talaga ako nagpapagawa ng botox sa kilikili kasi nga medyo pawisin 'yung kilikili ko talaga, so 'yun 'yung madalas na pinapagawa at cleaning," she said.
Asked why she is open about her planned cosmetic surgeries, unlike other celebrities who undergo the same, Quinto said she sees the move as helpful to her career.
"Matagal ko naring sinasabi sa iba, kumbaga sabi ko nga hindi naman ako mahihiya sa mga tao kung ano talaga 'yung totoo.. nakita niyo naman 'yung itsura ko noon," she said, laughing.
She added: "Ito naman, alam ko naman kasi na makakatulong sa 'kin lalo sa trabaho ko."
