The transformation of Marlou Arizala into Xander Ford was well-publicized… and no doubt costly. On Sunday, Marlou unveiled his new self and fans went absolutely wild. Indeed, it was a huge change for the former member of Hasht5.
Shedding his former nickname of “Masarap Oppa-kan,” he is now being dubbed the “Oppa ng Bayan.”
To achieve his dreams of surgical transformation, Marlou went under the knife and had to go through a number of procedures. Wondering how much it cost? Wonder no longer.
Philippine Entertainment Portal (PEP.ph) made a few calls to find out just how much the Marlou-Xander transformation cost.
The most noticeable change in Marlou took place on his face – particularly his nose, chin, and jaw courtesy of the professionals from the ICON Clinic.
The price for Rhinoplasty and Alarplasty – the plastic surgery procedures that enhance the nose’s projection and reshape the width of nostrils – was P95,000. Mentoplasty – chin augmentation – costs somewhere between P60,000 to P70,000. The jawline angle augmentation with fillers costs about P60,000.
The estimated total amount is P225,000 just for the plastic surgery procedures.
For other facial enhancements, Xander’s sponsor Prettylooks released the prices which were estimated to total P80,800.
For the eye brow thickening, the projected rate is P16,000 to P35,000 for three sessions. Xander also underwent an anti-wrinkle procedure that cost P7,000. His eyes now stand out more because of the eye lash extension that cost P500 to P3,800. He also underwent a permanent lip tint procedure that cost P15,000 to P35,000.
Last but not the least, ceramic veneers were placed on his teeth. The veneers cost P20,000 per tooth, in Xander’s case, 8 veneers were installed. That totals P160,000.
The estimated total amount allotted for Marlou Arizala to transform into Xander Ford was a whopping P465,800.
Was it worth it? As Marlou – excuse us, Xander – said in an interview, “Who you na sila ngayon.”
