Cosmetic body modifications are an ever-increasing first world desire; none more so than for 32-year old Justin Jedlica who has undergone 90 procedures in 10 years to build a physique similar in stature to a plastic Ken Doll.
In a recent interview with the ABC network
in the US, Jedlica said that achieving his ideal body by working out is "not exciting - not glamorous, not fabulous" and that he is motivated by bucking the norm and seeks to “really metamorphosize” himself.
The New Yorker started with a nose job and has since added a further four, in addition to chest implants, tricep and bicep insertions, cheek augmentation, brow bone changes, lip enhancements, buttock lifts and implants, in total around $100,000 of surgery.
Growing up, Jedlica was an over-achiever and a straight A-student, but confesses that he obsessed over his appearance, feeling his nose was "astronomically huge" which led him to undergo his first cosmetic procedure. Jedlin added that though his first nose surgery was a “need” the rest were “wants” and although he is now close to his ideal image, his nose could do with a few more adjustments.
spoke with Dr. Drew Ordin, a Beverly Hills reconstructive surgeon, who said that by turning himself into a living, breathing silicone sculpture, Justin Jedlica is putting his life at risk. Jedlica commented that it's a small price to pay for the perfect body.
