Fifteen year old Chinese girl Lee Hee Danae has become an internet sensation after pictures showing her doll like transformation after undergoing plastic surgery to win back her ex boyfriend.
Since posting images of her transformation on China’s version of Facebook, Weibo the teen has found herself inundated with over 587 000 followers with many commenting Danae is ‘too beautiful to look at.’
Stunned at the teen’s new appearance, several Chinese people commented that Danae’s pointed chin and snow-white skin had made her a ‘snake spirit,’ a reference to one of the most popular folk legends in China.
Whilst many have praised the teen’s ‘new features’ others have also questioned whether the photos are real, positing that they may have been digitally altered.
The young woman joins an eclectic list of improbable personas who have elected to use plastic surgery and other
questionable techniques to accord hyper surreal transformations.
Plastic surgery has become increasingly popular in China in recent years, with many women seeing it as an opportunity to enhance their professional/marketing prospects as evidenced on Lee Hee Danae’ weibo page.
