A mother in China took things to the extreme in bid to stop her daughter from undergoing any more plastic surgery procedures.

According to Shanghaiist, the 61-year-old was heartbroken by her daughter Yu Ning's ever-changing face and threatened to disown her in front of a live audience on a television program.

Said the woman to the audience: "Every time I see her, she looks different. I can hardly recognize her even though I'm her mother. Now my daughter’s face has been totally reshaped, all her aunts say she looks like a monster. How can I not be worried?"

Yu Ning has spent close to $170,000 on 20 plastic surgery operations in two years. She hopes to look like actress Fan Bingbing despite her friends saying that she already looked good.

The 29-year-old told the audience that she had gone under the knife for jaw contorting, nose reconstruction and double eyelids operations.

She was however still unsatisfied with how she looked, believing that her "eyes are too small" and her "jaw too long".

The show ended with the Yu Ning apologising to her mother but it is unclear if she still plans to undergo any more cosmetic procedures in future.
