Who is Justin Jedlica?
Justin is a Ken doll-inspired plastic surgery addict who grew up with his parents and three siblings in New York, USA.
His obsession with changing his body began in the 90s – when he watched a TV series called Lifestyles Of The Rich And Famous.
The 36-year-old previously said: “I wished my family could be wealthy like the people who featured in that show.
“They’d all had plastic surgery and I wanted to have it too because that was what rich people did.”
Plastic Surgeon @drplacik performing his “Lace Lift” procedure on me yesterday. This is accomplished by using a combination of both “twist” and “barb” temporary facial threads. This noninvasive and rejuvenational lifting is quick & painless; My Lunch Break couldn’t come sooner! #humankendoll #justinjedlica #lacelift #chicago #ottoplacik #threads #facelift #lunchbreak #outpatient #plasticsurgery #rejuvination #HouseOfPlastic

Justin first went under the knife at the age of 18, getting a nose job, chest, bicep and tricep implants.
Having previously been bullied for his looks at school, he also had his brow bone saved and a brow lift.
Justin added: “I realised I had a liking for exaggerated features, like a doll. I wanted a tiny waist and a large upper body, like a hero.”
The teen put all other spending on hold to fund his surgery – missing out on holidays, cars, furniture and Christmas presents.

How much plastic surgery has Justin Jedlica had?
In total, Justin has had more than 340 cosmetic procedures and 190 operations – including five nose jobs and shoulder, back, cheek, bicep and bum implants.
Speaking in August 2016, he said: “I have a reputation for being one of the world’s most extreme surgery addicts and I love pushing the limits.”
He’s even had four implants, all designed by him, placed inside his back in an attempt to “give the illusion of wings”.
“I view it as an investment in my body so the price tag actually has an emotional worth to me as well,” Justin said, appearing on Barbie: The Most Famous Doll in the World.
“I think (dolls) played a part for sure when I was a kid I had more barbies I think than Kens.
“I was really struck by celebrities like Michael Jackson, Joan Rivers, Dolly Parton.
“To me plastic surgery is very emblematic of wealth, I was brought up in a very low income family, we didn’t have a lot of money so you had to work to survive.”

Is Justin Jedlica single?
Justin was married to a wealthy businessman for three years, before they split in 2016.
He previously said: “My husband tells me my plastic surgery turns him on!” but later admitted his surgery had torn them apart.
After the divorce, Justin vowed to live with real-life Barbie Pixee Fox – who also said her surgery obsession had ruined her love life.
In 2016, he signed up to hit Bravo show Millionaire Matchmaker – in the hope host Patti Stanger could help him find love again.
