Gao confessed that she thought the surgery would make her more beautiful but it turned out to be the beginning of a nightmare. The experience left her feeling suicidal and she had lost several acting jobs as a result.

She described the surgery she went through as a “micro-adjustment” to graft cartilage onto the tip of her nose.

However, after the procedure, her nose felt “irritated and tingly” and it eventually became infected. Gao said that the skin on the tip of her nose became darker and darker and ended up being necrotic. This left her needing to go through follow-up surgeries after her first surgery in late October last year.

According to her post on Weibo, she was hospitalised for 61 days and lost jobs that could have earned her 400,000 yuan (US$61,800).

Unfortunately, she said that due to the extent of the damage, she will not be able to have anymore follow-up, reconstructive surgery for at least a year.

Her sharing ignited discussions about cosmetic surgery, which is gaining popularity in China. Many on social media are rallying for those involved in Gao’s procedure to be held responsible by the authorities, while others have called for better regulation in cosmetic procedures in China.
