Plastic Surgery Rumors

A lot of K-Pop idols are surrounded by rumors of plastic surgery, because of their flawless faces and figures, but does that mean the rumors are true? As for Madtown, instead of just having plastic surgery rumors, one of their former members, H.O, once told viewers about what was it like to get a nose job, on a video streaming service called AfreecaTV.

He said that he always had problems with his nose, and claimed that he always wanted to get a nose job. However, since plastic surgery has so many side effects, he said that it’s important to do research to choose the right hospital to get the procedure done.
Just like in the plastic surgery videos on the Internet, his nose was actually raised, then the doctor added some silicone to his nose bridge. The process didn’t take very long, and he also didn’t experience any pain, since he fell asleep.
Not only that, but H.O also shared some tips for after the surgery. It takes about 6 months until the nose is fully recovered, so he said that he breathed through his mouth whenever his nose had a problem. Thus, he needed to apply lip balm often, since his lips would get dry as a result.
Since H.O has spilled the beans, let’s compare the pictures of Madtown members, before and after their debut, to see if they did any plastic surgery, as well!
