'The Bachelor' Star Sogand's Honest Pictures Before Lip And Cheek Fillers
When you look at Sogand Mohtat's face -- it's not obvious to most that she uses injectables -- and that's exactly what she wants.
Speaking to 10 daily, Sogand explained she gets both cheek and lip fillers and despite being only 30-years-old, has been doing so for years.
While the purpose of cheek fillers are to add volume and contour to the face and lip fillers give the appearance of a more pronounced pout, Sogand said it's easy to take it too far and begin to look unnatural.
The person who injects Sogand's face also so happens to be her mum, Soheila Jadidi, the founder of Diamond Aesthetics.
My mum actually does injectables, so that's her business. It's convenient! It helps that she, I guess, uses me for her business side. I was a model for her to do cheeks and lips.
But it wasn't Soheila suggesting her daughter should inject her face. In fact, it was Sogand who inspired her mum to get into the cosmetic injectables business to begin with.
Sogand first had her lips done in 2012 when she was 23, after wanting to achieve Kylie Jenner's infamous pout. But she was terrified to go home and tell her mum because she thought she wouldn't approve.
"I thought she was going to kill me," Sogand said. Yet much to her surprise, it had the opposite impact and helped her mum discover what Sogand said is a "passion for injectables".
It lead Soheila to opening her own clinic and according to Sogand, her mum's entire business model is based on giving women a natural look. So much so that she refuses to work on any clients who would like otherwise.
"Mum is big on looking natural. She would actually reject customers if they've overdone it or they want to overdo it. That's her brand. She's amazing," she told 10 daily.
Yet despite having her own business, Sogand's mum didn't want her daughter spruiking it when she went on 'The Bachelor', mostly out of concerns for what people would have to say about her daughter as well as her appearance.
"She told me, 'Don't say anything when you go into the house because people are going to think you didn't look good beforehand'," she told 10 daily.
"Every time someone complemented my face or my cheek bones or whatever, I would be like, 'Oh my mum's done it!'"
Given her mum does her injectables, Sogand said she's had no bad experiences using them, unlike fellow contestant Rachael.
Rachael previously told 10 daily that she thought her lips looked too big during her time on the show, explaining she made the mistake of injecting them right before she entered the mansion.
"I'll even be the first to say my lips looked too big -- I had just had them redone before I went in and they looked huge! They were very swollen -- I'll be the first to admit it," Rachael told 10 daily.
Yet Sogand said she made the choice not to have them done before going on the show for this reason. "No mine were a good six months old before going in," she said.
They do settle down. They do go down after a while which is good. They look more natural.
While most patients generally need a top up every four to six months, Sogand said she doesn't get them done that often. "I would say about once a year," she said.
'The Bachelor' airs Wednesdays and Thursdays at 7.30pm, only on 10, 10 Play and WIN Networks.
