SOCIAL media has exploded after internet star Marlou Arizala finally revealed his new look after undergoing cosmetic surgery.
In Sunday's episode of "Rated K," Arazila, now known as Xander Ford, has finally debuted his new look to the loud cheers of his social media followers.
He had something done with his nose, chin, lips and even his teeth.
Ford said his dream of looking good has finally come true.
"Natupad na yung pangarap ko. Masakit, pero kaya, kasi ito talaga ang pangarap ko. Ito talaga yung goal ko, yung mabago ang sarili ko."

The 25-year-old added that he does not miss his old self as he prefers the way he looks now.
"Kinalimutan ko na yung mga nakaraan kasi itong bagong ito, ito na yung bagong mamahalin ko," he said.
But amid his transformation, Ford said he remains the same person inside.
"Itong nasa harapan ninyo, binago ko lang siya sa pangalan at yung pagkatao lang, yung panlabas lang, para maiba rin yung tingin sa akin ng ibang tao," he said.
Meanwhile, social media was abuzz with the changes they've seen in Ford's physical look. Some already regretted throwing negative words to the social media star.
"We don't deserve Xander Ford after we criticized Marlou Arizala," one Twitter user wrote.

Others concluded that Ford's decision to go under the knife could be linked to bullying.
"Xander Ford was bullied for being both ugly and handsome in the eyes of society. Maybe the real issue here is the ugliness of bullying?"
Ford, on his part, has only this message to his bashers, "Who you na sila ngayon!" (SunStar Philippines)
