Filipino designer Hugo Chavez has reportedly undergone drastic plastic surgery to look like Superman, his favorite comic book hero.
35-year-old Pinoy Hugo Chavez has reportedly undergone numerous plastic surgery recoveries over the last ten years to look like Superman, a fictional character. His past procedures include a nose job, a chin augmentation, thigh implants and silicone lip injections as well as taken injections to lighten his skin.
Chavez most likely suffers from some form of body dysmorphic disorder and is planning more plastic surgery in the future, including an operation to define his abs and even the controversial leg-lengthening surgery that is very dangerous. It’s a good thing that Chavez isn’t planning on doing any crime fighting with his altered appearance, as plastic surgery recovery for so many procedures is very time consuming.
Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Salzhauer says, “Although it is common for a patient to refer to a celebrity for an example of a look they desire, it is not common to perform plastic surgery to create a totally different appearance; especially that of a super hero.”
No word on how plastic surgery has helped Chavez get his hair to curl so perfectly, but he is reportedly a big hit in the neighborhood, where he teaches kids about good deeds and good morals.
