Justin Jedlica: human Ken doll spent $100,000 on 100 plastic surgery operations
Justin Jedlica spent about $100,000 on between 90 and 100 surgeries so that he could become a living Ken doll.
“I’ve always been into plastic surgery because it’s an extension of me being creative,” 32-year-old Justin 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.
Justin Jedlica started going under the knife when he was only 18-years-old, beginning the costly and dangerous habit 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.
He proudly shows the shape that he has paid big bucks for, willingly stripping off his shirt to show the tight products of his pec implants, and almost cartoonish biceps made of silicone.
Justin Jedlica said that he feels the surgeries are ways that he can “treat myself as if I were my own sculpture, my own artwork”.
Though the crew of doctors on the daytime talk show all seemed concerned about the high number of surgeries he has gone through, they were wary of telling him to stop all together as it is his right.
One pointed out that while he is extremely lucky to have avoided any complications thus far, that may not always hold true as the implants could deteriorate as the years wear on and his body tissue breaks down.
“There’s always the potential for something to go wrong, but those risks are pretty nominal,” Justin Jedlica 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!”
