1The human Ken doll who ate 3,000-calorie-a-day diet to add fat to his derriere
He's a cosmetic surgery addict who has undergone 47 surgeries to achieve "perfection." Despite previously vowing never to have surgery again, Rodrigo Alves has revealed he has gone under the knife once more for an elective butt lift which saw him put on 30 pounds for a lipo fat transfer.
The 33-year-old Brazilian revealed he was put on a 3000 calorie a day diet, why he went under the knife again and why he'll never stop striving for perfection, although suffering life-threatening necrosis after his body rejected his sixth nose job.
Rodrigo has now spent $450,0000 on cosmetic surgery, with $12,000 for his latest lipo transfer in Marbella, where he is currently based.
2The mom of 5 who had $500,000 of plastic surgery to look like Barbie
Nanette Hammond, 42, started getting regular Botox injections around the age 27. Since then, she's had five children, and spent more than $500,000 to look and live like Barbie. (That does not include her hot pink Barbie convertible.)
"My husband Dave and my children are just so proud of me and what I've achieved through surgery. They think I look great—my life is better than Barbie's now," Hammond said. She explained she was obsessed with Barbies from an early age and was eager to start her transformation as soon as she could.
Since beginning Botox treatments, she's had three breast augmentations, a breast lift, veneers, lip fillers, eyelash extensions, consistent spray tans, and several hair extensions and dye jobs. She has no plan to stop having the surgeries:"It's worth every penny to look like this. I feel happy and secure.”
3The Japanese woman who spent almost $300,000 to look like a French doll
A Japanese woman is so obsessed with French dolls that she decided to become one. She's spending the equivalent of $300,000 to change her appearance completely, and she's not even close to being done.
What started "Vanilla" on this obsessive path of physical transformation were the unkind words her father spoke to her as a child: "You are ugly, so you have to live with it." She obviously disagreed. No word on how she amassed all that money, but she looks unrecognizable from her photos as a 12-year-old girl.
Vanilla claims to be from the Palace of Versailles and 27 years old, but her friends from school in Japan revealed she is 32. She is only 5' tall but plans on spending another seven million yen, ($60,000) to make herself taller.
4The woman who set a world record with 52 plastic surgeries
Cindy Jackson is beautiful, but she wasn't born with her show-stopping looks—she bought them. Jackson, a Londoner who hails from the American Midwest, has had $100,000 in cosmetic procedures, including 14 full-scale operations as well as cuts, pulls, peels and jabs. She's had Botox, five face-lifts, liposuction, and her eyes have been done—twice. In total, Jackson has had 52 cosmetic procedures, a world record for the most ever undergone by one person. "I didn't set out to break, to set a world record, it was never my ambition, it's just that I had so much done," she said.
5The woman so addicted to plastic surgery that she injected herself with cooking oil
Former model Hang Mioku was left permanently disfigured following a desperate DIY beauty treatment. After injecting an entire bottle of black market silicone into her face, Hang then resorted to using cooking oil which left her face severely swollen and scarred.
Her plight was featured on Korean television and viewers donated thousands of pounds to pay for corrective surgery. During the first of 10 operations, surgeons removed 60g of silicone, oil and other foreign substances from her face, and 200g more from her neck.
Hang is still disfigured, and she said she wishes she could have her old face back. She had her first procedure aged 28 and then moved to Japan where she had repeated treatments. She quickly became obsessed with having smoother and softer skin. Doctors eventually refused to carry out any more work on her after her face was noticeably enlarged. She managed to get hold of a bottle of silicone and a syringe to self-inject, but when that ran out, she resorted to using cooking oil. Her face was so altered that her parents did not recognize her. Local children called to her 'standing fan' because her face was so large compared to her body. Numerous operations paid for by donation have managed to reduce the size of her face and neck, but she is still significantly disfigured.
6The woman so obsessed with plastic surgery that she even had eye implants
Cosmetic surgery addict Pixee Fox hit the headlines in 2015 when she had six ribs removed to sculpt the “perfect” hourglass figure. The 26-year-old bombshell has gone under the knife a whopping 18 times and forked over $120,000 in a bid to look like Jessica Rabbit. Now, the former electrician has spent a further $6,000 on eye implants to swap their color from blue to “cartoon green.”
The jaw-dropping procedure is usually used to correct iris abnormalities, but it isn't available as a cosmetic operation in most Western countries. Instead, Pixiee flew to New Delhi, India, to see Dr. Suraj Munjal at the Spectra Eye Hospital. The operation involved having two intraocular implants, made by US firm BrightOcular, inserted into her pupil through a 2.8mm incision. The implants come folded and are injected into the eye. Despite the drastic results, the procedure only takes 15 minutes per eye and is performed under local anesthetic.
7The guy who spent $150,000 to look like Kim Kardashian—but now his lips are leaking
Jordan Parks, a 23-year-old from England who wants to look like Kim Kardashian, recently appeared on E!'s Botched because he said his lips were “leaking.”
The self-proclaimed lip filler addict said he's had filler injected into his chin, both lips, both cheeks, and his forehead, and has had Botox around his nose. He told E!, “I sort of got addicted to the lip filler.” His addiction led to health problems, and he went on the show because his lips had started to leak.
Parks said he was 19 when he got his first procedure, getting his eyebrows tattooed. At 21, he got his lips done for the first time.
8The 52-year-old mother of two who spent $148K to look like a 30-year-old
A plastic-surgery obsessed mother-of-two has splashed out $148,000 on procedures to help her look 30 even though she's 52.
Bee Cameron is so desperate to turn back the hands of time she's run up $10,400 of debt and suffered through botched surgeries. She's lavished cash on liposuction, three boob jobs, an eye lift, surgery to give her a thigh gap and improve the look of her hands.
“I don't date anyone over 35, and have a great sex life as a result and I look forward to my procedures like someone looks forward to a date.
“I consider my body an ever-changing work of art. I am not hurting anyone, and I find the fact I can change and control my appearance empowering."
Bee is currently getting jabs in her hands to help them look less wrinkled, a procedure dubbed the "Madonna hand job" by some.
9The transgender woman who spent $75K on plastic surgery to look 'perfect'
A transgender woman who has spent £52,000 on plastic surgery to enhance her looks has revealed that she refuses to stop until she has reached "perfection." And her wife is fully supportive of her decision.
Fulvia Pellegrino has had more than 150 lip and cheekbone fillers, four breast implants, and two rounds of liposuction. The 56-year-old has spent €12,000 (£9,000) on her bum and is planning more surgery in her quest for the perfect face and body. Remarkably, Fulvia's wife, Marisa, is standing by her husband, although the pair are now more like sisters than a married couple.
