Nothing is more futuristic than being able to change your appearance at will. While we’re not yet at the point where these changes are easy and widely available, we’re moving in that direction. Some people settle on plastic surgery because of health issues, and others choose that route for aesthetic reasons. But they all can agree that the results did wonders for their self-esteem and confidence.

Bright Side cheers for people who decided to “go for it,” so we’ve collected 20 glow-ups that impressed us the most.

1. “This is me after 10 years of procedures: chin, jaw, hair transplant, and rhinoplasty.”

2. “I used to be self-conscious when I was young — glad to have moved past it!”

3. “My nose job really gave me a confidence boost! I got the perfect results.”
