Three friends from Cabadbaran, Agusan del Norte just like many transwomen, Alvina Bernardes, Maui Cababao, and Nina Lavadia only wanted to improve their beauty. However, they didn’t have enough money to afford expensive treatments by licensed doctors which cost around P20,000 to P50,000.
Alvina said: “Inanyayahan kami na “gusto niyo ba magpaganda na mura lang?” Na-curious ako sa sarili ko. P500 daw ang babayaran,” Alvina told Kapuso Mo Jessica Soho.
However, instead of using the usual fillers used by doctors, Janet apparently used melted petroleum jelly. She injected it on Alvina’s cheeks, nose and chin. At first, the change brought upon by the cheap injections was desirable. But, months later, their cheeks and chins started to swell. Many people around them started to mock and make fun of their appearance.
Maui recounted: “Mabigat tas parang ang init kasi petroleum jelly” Pag ganun nang pisngi, bagong ligo ka, ang init. Parang nag-react yung petroleum so makikita mo talaga nag-pula siya,”
Dr. Henry Claraval, a facial plastic surgeon, warned against treatments using petroleum jelly as fillers. He advised patients to have their faces enhanced by licensed doctors in clinics.
Currently, the three are still recovering from their surgeries.
