Anastasia Pokreshchuk, the woman with the ‘world’s biggest cheeks’, has hit back at critics slamming her extreme look.

Pokreshchuk is famed for her rather unusual appearance.

She’s made it her life’s mission to achieve the biggest cheeks she possibly can, with the aid of injectable fillers.

However, not everyone is keen on her out-there look.

Pokreshchuk claims she’s been getting hateful messages about her appearance online, and has hit back at her critics with a powerful message…

Pokreshchuk, who went viral after sharing a before photo, has previously opened up about her extra-large cheeks.

She told the New York Post: “I love them, I want them to look like this and I’m very happy. I regularly inject other parts of my face myself.

“I understand that they look weird for other people but I don’t mind.”

However, Pokreshchuk also told the outlet about the downsides of her look, saying that people go out of their way to call her ‘ugly’.

“When I see it I just laugh it off and ignore it,” she added.

During an appearance on ITV’s This Morning, Pokreshchuk went on to say: “I love this look. I was like a grey mouse. My nose was too big. And now I have big cheeks and big lips it looks OK.

“My mom thinks that I was naturally beautiful before, but now thinks I look more exotic and my friends say my new appearance is better.”

Pokreshchuk began her filler journey at age 26.

She’s previously received major flack for posting a video of herself self-administering filler to her cheeks following a doctor’s tutorial.

“This can be dangerous but I do it with doctors,” she said, per the Daily Mail. “I am learning online. I was worried, but I love this.”

She continued: “[I won’t] die no. There is an antidote. An infection is not good, but everything is sterilised when I’m doing this. I do it like a doctor.

“Of course, I have more attention with my filler, romantic also. But it’s not to do with my cheeks – it’s because I have become more confident.”

She added: “My mum thinks this is a little bit crazy, but what can she do. No regrets, never any regrets, I’m happy with my cheeks.”

People have had a mixed reception to Pokreshchuk’s look, to say the least.

“Omg your natural face is so beautiful,” one person comments.

Another says: “You were naturally very pretty.”

But others love her extreme facial modifications!

“Everyone has their own definition of beauty, not everyone can look this good with defined cheekbones,” one writes.

While a second agrees: “You are one of a kind and unique!”

But one comment which says that ‘nobody would find her attractive’ has really struck a nerve with Pokreshchuk, who has clapped back.

She writes on Instagram: “I don’t understand this kind of thinking at all. I don’t understand how I can think about my appearance based on what others say.

“I don’t care what others say because this is my face and I have to like it, not you. This is my face and my life.”

She concludes: “You will not live my life for me, OK?”
