I traveled around Europe for a while with a friend who had lost a lot of weight. She had trouble getting through customs everywhere, but when we went to Morocco, it didn’t look like they were going to let her leave. I thought we were going to miss her flight. They had at least 5 people comparing her to her passport photo. The first thing she did when she got back home was get a new passport.


i had to look at the girls hairline to make sure it was the same person. pretty interesting.


Wow thats really good plastic surgery looks so natural to. No wonder all thoes youtubers are booking surgeries in South Korea


Okay. Jaw surgery and a nose job, I understand. (I had double jaw surgery myself in 2016 to correct my underbite). But how the fuck did they make her eyes bigger???


This happened to me when I visited China and I was trying to go back to Korea. My passport photo was super unflattering and I was about 30 lbs heavier when the picture was taken. I had several people stop me and question why I looked different in my passport before I was allowed to go to the gate
