Chienna Filomeno has finally spoken at length about her nose job.
The actress, who first admitted that she went under the knife on “Tonight With Boy Abunda” back in April, recently told reporters at the GT press conference that her rhinoplasty was less for vanity and more of a corrective measure for an injury she had obtained when she was born.
She explained, “There’s a story behind it. Kasi noong ipinanganak ako, I was born in Japan, gusto ni Mommy normal delivery. It took her siguro whole day mag-labor, hindi kaya. If 50-50 na kailangan ko na lumbas so emergency CS [caesarean] ako. Since emergency, ‘yung doctor, pagkahiwa niya, natamaan ‘yung ilong ko.”

“Tapos sabi nila, mag-regenerate daw kasi baby pa naman daw ako. So, okay, sige, sige, sige [but then] I was 14 na, wala...hindi pa rin tumubo ‘yung buto,” she continued. “Si Mommy ko, Daddy ko lahat matangos ilong. So, ‘yung sa akin, tinamaan siya. If you can see, there’s a scar [on my nose], 'yan ‘yung tama ng scalpel.”
According to Chienna, the injury had caused her to be insecure about her looks. And then she decided to get surgery.
She revealed, “‘Yun ‘yung [dahilan] kung bakit naging confident ako. Naging confident doon, naging confident ako dahil napaayos ko ‘yung insecurity ko...some people are closed-minded about surgery.”
She pressed, “Enhancing something sa face mo na gusto mo maging confident, that's something... kung nagawa mo man ‘yun, it doesn’t make you less of a person. Kung ikaka-confident mo ‘yun, why not do it, kasi ‘yun ang magpapasaya sa iyo and alam mo what’s best for you.”
Chie is a mainstay in the noontime variety program “It’s Showtime” as part of the girl group GT, formerly known as GirlTrends.
She appeared in the 2017 Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla romantic comedy "Can't Help Falling in Love."
