An Instagram model who claims to have the 'world's biggest cheeks' has revealed that she will 'never listen to doctors' despite a medic trying to warn her against the 'inherent risks'.
Anastasiia Pokreshchuk appeared on This Morning alongside Dr Steven Harris and described herself as the 'prettiest monster you will ever see' as well as ignoring Dr Harris' advice, insisting she's happy with her appearance.
Speaking to the show's hosts Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford, the 32-year-old said: "I understand this is extraordinary. But it's normal and good for me and I am happy with my look, I will never listen to doctors.
"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."
Talking about the issues she had with her face prior to spending more than £1,500 ($2,100) on filler, Anastasiia added: "I [didn't] like my face, I looked like a hamster, I like a slim face. I was a hamster; my cheeks were lower."
Dr Harris spoke from a professional standpoint, explaining: "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 over-treated.
"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."
Hitting back, the model explained: "I'm a psychology graduate. 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."
Anastasiia, who is from Kiev, Ukraine, regularly posts comparison pictures from before she had work done. The images show her with a much more toned down look, brunette hair, thinner brows and... well, smaller, natural cheeks.
As well as her cheeks appearing notably bigger, her lips have also taken a plumping.
