Many women have cited the plastic children’s toy Barbie as their influence for plastic surgery. But one man has become notorious for his quest to look like Barbie’s longtime love interest, Ken. Justin Jedlica first came to public attention after appearing on The Doctors television and revealing that since turning 18 he had had numerous plastic surgery procedures and didn’t plan on stopping anytime soon. It seems that he has been true to his word.
At last count, now 33-year old Justin Jedlica had spent $100,000 and undergone between 90 and 100 surgeries in an effort to become a real life Ken doll. Now he has upped that number to an astounding 145 procedures and a staggering total cost of more than $168,000.
Justin first revealed that after a nose job at 18, he went on to have five rhinoplasties, a cranial brow bone shape and cheek, lip, chin and buttocks augmentation, in addition to pec implants and silicone biceps. He has also had various augmentations done to his chin, cheeks, lips and buttocks to achieve his preferred look.
So what more has he done lately? RadarOnline reports that Justin has replaced his bicep implants with a larger size and designed custom implants to put in his shoulder for larger deltoids. Customizing his own implants actually led Justin to create his own plastic surgery consultation business.
Recognizing that one size may not fit all, Justin creates implants for specific needs.
“This is a very exciting time because not only am I creating new implants for myself, I am also in the process of finding the right distributor for my line of custom implants as there are limited options in the current marketplace which simply do not fit everyone,” Justin told Radar in an exclusive interview.
“Additionally, the launch of my consultancy allows me share all that I have learned with others looking to have cosmetic and/or reconstructive procedures, but are confused or overwhelmed by the process.”
Justin says that coming forward with his personal story has made him want to help others achieve their plastic surgery dreams as well. In addition to making custom implants, his new business venture also offers consultations for others seeking to go under the knife.
“Over the years I’ve received so many emails and letters asking for advice that I am thrilled to have formalized a way to help those looking for guidance,” Justin concluded.
When he first appeared on The Doctors, Justin said that undergoing so much plastic surgery was a creative process for him.
“I’ve always been into plastic surgery because it’s an extension of me being creative.”
Even the pain of plastic surgery doesn’t seem to deter him from seeking out further cosmetic surgery enhancements as he continues to go under the knife for procedures that are known to be painful.
After his first nose job, he says, “It was really something that set me apart and validated me and I felt so euphoric.”
