A mother broke down in tears on TV when she failed to recognise her son after he had plastic surgery to change a facial deformity.

Thai factory worker Noppajit Monlin (22) applied to take part in a TV show, Let Me In, which gives plastic surgery makeovers, after years of feeling depressed about his twisted jaw which left him unable to chew properly.

After he was accepted on the show he had surgery and skin treatments to treat acne and his transformation was so dramatic his own mother did not recognise him.

“I really miss him, and I'm not acting," she said when she saw the result.

He said, ”Mum, do you remember me? Look at me." and she replied, ”Is it you? Is it really you?"

The young man said he feels "much better" after having the surgery and says it has boosted his confidence.  He said he has more friends since undergoing the transformation.

“Before, people said my face was not normal and society didn't accept me, now I have more friends." he said.
