TikToker Says the Best Part of Plastic Surgery Is "Getting Content"
Levi Jed Murphy isn't shy about celebrating his new look on social media.
The TikToker, who recently unveiled his face transformation after five back-to-back plastic surgery procedures, gave further insight into his experiences going under the knife, sharing that his favorite part about it all is "getting the content."
"I love getting the content when I'm just post-surgery, so like when I'm still recovering in hospital," Levi said in a YouTube video Aug. 13. "Getting that kind of content is just hilarious to me, I don't know why."
As for what type of content the 27-year-old enjoys filming? Some lighthearted jokes to lighten the mood amid his recovery.
"It's kind of funny," he explained, "because obviously I crack these jokes when I'm like half-dying. And then as soon as I put the phone down I think, 'Oh my god, I might actually die.' I just enjoy the content that I can get, and it usually slaps. She's kind of a quirky queen when she's going through trauma."
Despite the hardship, Levi, who has 5.8 million followers on TikTok, said he's open to striking amounts of plastic surgery. In fact, he said he tells his surgeon, "I want it like really dramatic—I don't want it natural."
"He's like 'Girl, I know by now,'" Levi recalled. "'I know that you want extreme.'"
And on Aug. 14, Levi unveiled before-and-after pictures of his transformation from before he had any surgeries to now, following his most recent operations, which included "full face lift, deep temporal brow lift, buccal fat removal, chin lipo and scar revision."
"my swelling has basically completely gone and my scars are fading," he captioned his post. "It's already a massive improvement compared to my previous scaring. the last swipe is when i was obsessed with botched fillers, and it's unbelievably embarrassing to look back at but we live n learn girlies."
Previously, Levi has had two nose jobs, three lip lifts, three temporal brow lifts, a full face lift, a canthoplasty and a blepharoplasty (both are eyelid procedures), as well as getting his ears pinned, neck liposuction and buccal fat removal.
