32-year-old Justin Jedlica, from New York City, has so far splashed around $100,000 on 90 cosmetic procedures, in his never-ending quest for that perfect look.
Plastic surgery is pretty common nowadays, but some people really take it to the extreme. Meet Justin Jedlica, whose sculpted physique would have you thinking he’s a gym fanatic. But in reality, his muscles are more plastic than meat, as most over his upper body has been augmented with silicone implants. He’s had pectoral implants, six-pack implants, triceps and biceps implants, all so he could attain the look he desired. It all started with his glutes. He wanted his buttocks to be perkier, tighter, harder, so instead of working out, he decided to get some implants, and after 13 cosmetic sessions, he got what he wanted. But that was only the beginning of his affair with plastic surgery. During the last 10 years, Justin Jedlica has went through 90 different plastic surgeries, transforming himself into a real-life Ken doll.
After he got his chest implants, people started asking him if he only works out his pecs, because he had no arm muscles. So he decided to solve that problem by looking for doctors who did biceps and triceps implants. You’re probably asking yourself “why didn’t he just work out a little?” and here’s Justin’s answer: “that is so not exciting, not glamorous or fabulous”. In an interview for ABC’s 20/20, Jedlica admitted to being addicted to plastic surgery. “I love to metamorphosize myself, and the stranger the surgery the better”, he said, adding that “bucking the norm is so much fun”. And with 90 procedures under his belt, Justin is really pushing the envelope.
Growing up, he was an overachiever and a straight-A student, but he was always obsessed with the size of his nose. For him, it was “astronomically huge”, so as soon as he got the chance, he decided to change it. Five nose jobs later, Justin says his nose is close to his ideal, but not really perfect. He admits that, except for that first nose-job, which was “a need”. the rest have been “wants”, but he loves what he’s allowed himself to become, and he’s not considering stopping his physical transformation anytime soon.
But experts like Dr. Drew Ordin, a Beverly Hills plastic and reconstructive surgeon, disagrees, saying that by turning himself into a living, breathing silicone sculpture, Justin Jedlica is really putting his life at risk.
