Anastasiia Pokreshchuk, 32, from Kiev, Ukraine has spent the last two years administering her own facial injections and believes she looked like a ‘hamster’ before her her drastic cheek filler.

Appearing on This Morning today with Dr Steven Harris, who runs the Harris Clinic in Crouch End, north London, she said that she is ‘happy with her look’ and described herself as the ‘prettiest monster you will ever see’.

‘I understand this is extraordinary’, she said. ‘But it’s normal and good for me and I am happy with my look, I will never listen to doctors .’

She added: ‘I am very happy. I am looking from my pictures from two years ago and I think I was ugly. 

‘Maybe you don’t like how you look now, but you can change it no problem’. 

When quizzed on why she didn’t like her appearance, Anastasiia said: ‘I [didn’t] like my face, I looked like a hamster, I like a slim face. I was a hamster; my cheeks were lower.’

The social media model, who boasts 270k followers on Instagram, says she has Botox as well as filler in her cheeks, lips and jaw. She is pictured before and after treatment

The social media model, who boasts 270k followers on Instagram, says she has Botox as well as filler in her cheeks, lips and jaw.  

Anastasiia added that no celebrity inspired her appearance and that those closest to her never say anything about the amount of filler she is injecting into her face.  

‘I’m a psychology graduate, she said. ‘Nobody tells me that [her filler is too much]. People who talk about my appearance know me well and know that I’m a normal person, not crazy, not stupid .’

Dr Harris said he believes the standard of beauty in society is being ‘twisted’ and that ‘unrealistic expectations’ are being set through social media.

Speaking about Anastasiia, he said: ‘In my opinion she looks to be over-treated. She clearly doesn’t feel the same, objectively from a professional point of view she does appear to be overtreated. 

‘It becomes too much when the look becomes exaggerated or outside normal for that individual and there are inherent risks with overfilling, both to the physical and psychological wellbeing of the patient. 

‘These are things we need to consider and need to be considered and taken into account. 

‘Our first duty of care is to do no harm if we are distorting features we are not fulfilling that, this is what we need to look at very carefully.’
