We have seen a number of women trying to transform themselves into real-life Barbie dolls, and now, one 32-year-old man is trying to transform into a living, breathing Ken doll.
Justin Jedlica has spent approximately $100,000 on 90 to 100 surgeries in order to become a real-life Ken doll.
“I’ve always been into plastic surgery because it’s an extension of me being creative,” Mr. Jedlica said during an interview on The Doctors television show.
Among his surgeries were five rhinoplasties, a cranial brow bone shape and augmentations to his cheeks, lips, buttocks and chin.
Jedlica began his plastic surgery addiction when he was 18 with a nose job.
“It was really something that set me apart and validated me and I felt so euphoric,” he said of that first surgery.
Not only has Jedlica had surgeries on his face to replicate a Ken doll, but he also has pec implants, as well as absurd biceps made of silicone.
While he has not had complications yet, it is always a possibility, as implants can deteriorate over time.
“There’s always the potential for something to go wrong, but those risks are pretty nominal,” he said.
“I’m willing to accept these risks but I don’t think anything worthwhile in life comes without taking risks.
“It’s like asking Picasso not to paint!”
Comparing this guy to Picasso may be more absurd than his ambition to look like a Ken doll.
