(Scroll down for video) A beauty queen revealed her shocking secret to staying thin.
While most people who want to stay thin eat healthy, one teenager went to an extreme to maintain her body weight.
Wi May Nava, 18, who first won runner up in the Miss Venezuela 2013, spoke about her the extreme measures she took to stay slim.
The Venezuelan beauty queen revealed that she had a mesh patch sewn to the tongue so it is difficult for her to eat solid food. All her foods are turned into liquid so she can eat without pain.
Nava also had breast implants and a nose job in order to have a chance to win the competition.
These tongue procedures are also done in the United States.
A prominent cosmetic surgeon in California, reportedly charges $2,000 to sew these patches onto the tongue.
