She shared multiple images of how she looked before and after having the procedures done and the changes are very significant.

Despite the enormous surgery bill, Meiji says she is happy with the results.
“It’s not so much that I ‘fixed my face, but that I ‘purchased confidence,” she was quoted by SoraNews24 as saying.
Aside from her surgery, her new diet and fitness regimen also contributed a lot to her physical transformation.
So far, she has lost 12 kilograms (26.4 pounds) since committing to a daily exercise and adopting a strict diet of salads, soup, and yogurt.
