The Woman Had To Renew Her Passport After Cosmetic Enhancements As the Border Agents Refused To Believe It Was Her

4 months ago

A British woman openly shared that due to her surgeries, she faced difficulties moving around the world, with passport control staff raising numerous questions. In response, the 28-year-old decided to change her passport and presented a photo from a decade ago.

Joanne Prophet turned to the ultimate measure in order to get people to stop questioning her identity whenever she leaves her home country: getting a brand-new passport. According to her, she gets “interrogated everytime [she] flies” because airport and airline staff simply can’t believe she’s the same person as the one on her passport photo.

It’s especially troubling in foreign countries. In an interview, the beautician recalled a scary experience in Turkey. “I got pulled into a room for about an hour and got interrogated by about six Turkish men. So, obviously that was a massive concern,” she said. “Then when I flew back to Manchester, they had to keep looking at the picture, and they said you need to get this rectified, cause it looks nothing like you, and this is why you keep getting pulled.”

Although frustrating, the 28-year-old jokingly recognized the root of all her traveling troubles on TikTok, with a short clip showing her 10-year transformation through her passport photos. She admitted she had a “proper glow-up.”

But the “glow-up” took years to achieve and the mother of two wasn’t shy about sharing exactly what she did to get it. Joanne has had a nose job, two boob jobs and her teeth done. But the list of cosmetic procedures doesn’t stop there. It also includes redefining her features with chin and lip filler, fat dissolving injections and skin boosters, with some hair extensions and fake eyelashes to complete her new look.

Since the video was posted on TikTok, it has garnered nearly 200,000 views, and users have flooded the comments. One of them compared her new photo to that of a ’supermodel.’ Some shared similar experiences to Joan’s at passport control, with one user simply writing, “This happened to me in Singapore! Interrogated me in a room and asked me if I ever had cosmetic surgery, [I] had to pull up pictures from before [getting] filler”

Joanne added that cosmetic surgery isn’t for everyone, noting: ’I’m not by any means saying go get surgery because I feel like you’re all beautiful in your own way.’

Nevertheless, plastic surgery is now more popular and accessible than ever. Take a look at Patrick, who spent $73,000 to resemble a doll.
