Madalin Giorgetta, 30, reveals why she’s removing $7k of cosmetic work from her face

An Australian personal trainer has revealed why she’s removing $7,000 worth of Botox and fillers from her face and boycott the beauty and ‘diet’ industry.

Madalin Giorgetta, from Perth, Western Australia, has been on a ‘diet detox’ since the start of 2019, eliminating transformation photos, calorie counting and obsessing over exercise from her day-to-day life.

And now she is looking inward at her experiences with cosmetic surgery and why it’s not a practice she wants to advocate for anymore. 

‘I’ve had a lot of insecurities about my face and I tried fixing them all with Botox and fillers,’ the social media influencer wrote in a caption on Instagram.

‘I’ll be honest with you I actual prefer how I look with cosmetic injections and I am s*** scared about them draining out of my face over the next six months.

‘But I have decided to give up the needles for good.’ 

She said that it was easier to turn her back on hardcore dieting practices than it was for her to stop visiting her cosmetic surgeon.

‘I’ve felt for a long time that I needed to look a certain way for social media and I’ve felt as I’ve turned 30, that I didn’t want to look old either,’ she said.

‘I’ve realised that the beauty industry and the diet culture industry are not that different. They both make money off the insecurities of women.

‘And I refuse to hand over my money anymore.’  

In a YouTube video Madalin explained that she got Botox in her glabella – the middle of her eyebrows – forehead, chin, above her eyebrows and around her eyes to get rid of the wrinkles, also known as crows feet.

She’s also had lip injections for a fuller mouth, fillers under her eyes [tear trough], cheekbones and jawline. 

The young online star laughed as she confessed to even getting a few injections in her chin. 

‘It’s always a bit scary putting this stuff out there because once it’s on the internet it’s permanent,’ she said of the reason why it took so long to come to her decision.

‘I didn’t have that face that you see on Instagram and I felt insecure about mine.’

‘Our eyes are too small, our noses too wide, our waists too large, our hip dips too dippy, our eyebrows too thin, our skin too dark, our skin too light, our teeth too yellow, our boobs too small, our hair too dry, our lips too thin, our eyelashes too sparse, our bums too flat. 

‘I’m sick of not feeling enough and then too much of anything else.’

Madalin, who has one million followers on Instagram alone, has overhauled her purchasable workout guides so that a certain way of eating or working out is not encouraged.

She wants women to feel good about their bodies and work out for the sake of their health, not to meet a criteria set by society.
