Photos of Real People Who Got Extreme Plastic Surgery to Look Like a Celebrity
While plastic surgery used to just be for the elite, that attitude has changed over the years. Now, folks from all walks of life are going under the knife to look like the freshest and youngest versions of themselves. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports in 2015, nearly 16 million cosmetic surgeries were performed in the U.S. — and those numbers have only increased since then.
Here’s what’s concerning: Many people aren’t just getting surgery for minor cosmetic procedures. It turns out a number of folks are aiming to look like their favorite celebrities. And these extreme cases prove how easy it is to take things too far.
1. Pixee Fox to Jessica Rabbit
We all know Jessica Rabbit as being Roger Rabbit’s curvaceous wife — but some people are a little too inspired by her image. Pixee Fox, a North Carolina native in her late 20s, has had 19 cosmetic surgeries to look like the cartoon character, Daily Mail Online says. She spent over $100,000 in surgeries thus far, which included removing six ribs for a tiny waist and getting implants for her eyes to turn them an unnatural shade of green. Currently, her waist is at a mere 16 inches to give her body an exaggerated hourglass shape.

2. Nileen Namita to Queen Nefertiti
She’s not a living celebrity today, but we’re all familiar with Queen Nefertiti’s legacy. While most of us are content going to a history museum to learn about this Egyptian queen, Nileen Namita, now in her 50s, decided she wanted to look like her, Daily Mail Online reports. With over 50 cosmetic surgeries under her belt spanning over the course of 20 years, she believes she now represents the ancient beauty.
Nileen’s cosmetic work includes eight nose jobs, three chin implants, facelifts, and eye and lip surgeries, among other small procedures. She also believes she’s the reincarnation of Queen Nefertiti — so it’s only fitting she now attempts to look like her.

3. Ashley Horn to Lindsay Lohan
Lindsay Lohan is no stranger to the dark side of fame — but this time, it’s her half-sister getting the attention. Ashley Horn reportedly had $25,000 worth of surgery done to look like her famous sibling. Her cosmetic work includes a nose job, cheek fillers, jawline surgery, and fat injections, NY Daily News says.
As far as Ashley and Lindsay’s father is concerned, he considers the plastic surgery “nuts and sick and stalkerish. What mother would let her 18-year-old daughter get surgery like that?” he fired back.

We’ve followed Britney’s ups and downs in the pop culture world for years now. And 31-year-old Bryan Ray from Los Angeles has taken his love for the star to extremes. Cosmopolitan reports this super fan has spent over $80,000 on 90 cosmetic surgeries to look like Britney, and these include Botox treatments, fat injections, a nose job, lip fillers, and laser hair removal.
And Bryan’s love for Britney doesn’t stop at his looks — he’s even been to every single one of her tours and performs her dance choreography in nightclubs.

5. Matt and Mike Schlepp to Brad Pitt
You may remember these infamous twins back on MTV’s I Want a Famous Face. YourTango reports Matt and Mike Schlepp had big dreams of looking like Brad Pitt, so they dropped thousands of dollars to make it a reality. They both went in for surgery to get nose jobs, jaw and chin implants, and cheek operations. They also improved their smile with many porcelain veneers.
Though their operations made it difficult for them to eat at times, they claimed they were healthier and happier than ever after the surgeries.

6. Jennifer and Karen Lopez to Jennifer Lopez
At just 15 years old, this teen wanted to look like the star who shared her name — and her sister jumped on board, too. The Huffington Post reports Jennifer Lopez (the non-celebrity) flew to Colombia, her home country, to have liposuction, breast implants, and buttock fillers all in one day.
Karen, Jennifer’s sister, also had the same surgeries done — but she’s not too happy about all the attention. Karen says men flock to her thanks to her noticeable backside, and it’s not always wanted.

7. Annette Edwards to Jessica Rabbit
It seems Jessica Rabbit is a popular suggestion amongst patients in plastic surgery clinics. Daily Mail Online reports Annette Edwards, now in her 60s, spent over $13,000 in plastic surgery to look like this character. The work includes a breast uplift, brow lift, chin implants, and Botox along with extremely strict dieting.
As for why Annette wants to go for this extreme look, she says her love of rabbits made her want to commit. She’s the owner of Alice, the largest rabbit in the world, and breeds the animals for a living.

At 41 years old, Deborah Davenport wasn’t too pleased with her facial features — especially her nose.

For a mere $15,000, she had her nose cartilage shaved, cheek injections, and Botox around her forehead and eyes, The New York Times reports.
Now, Deborah loves when people think she looks like the Oscar-winning star. Funnily enough, Kate Winslet herself has mentioned she’s opposed to plastic surgery for cosmetic reasons.

He’s only in his mid-20s, but Jordan James Parke has already spent $100,000 to look like his favorite celeb, Kim Kardashian, Mirror Online reports. He’s received two nose jobs, a chin implant, 50 lip-filling operations, Botox injections, and laser hair removal. Jordan also has eyebrow tattoos to complete his Kim K look.
It wasn’t just Kim who inspired Jordan, either — he chose Kylie for his chin surgery inspiration. And though doctors and his family have warned him against having more surgery, it seems he’s not finished yet with going under the knife.

11. Herbert Chavez to Superman
Superman may not exist in real life — but for Herbert Chavez, he certainly tries his best to look the part. Daily Mail Online reports he’s gone through 23 surgeries over the course of 18 years to look like the superhero. Going under the knife for him has included nose jobs, skin whitening, liposuction, jaw realignment, and fillers. He even wears blue contacts to look more like Clark Kent.
Here’s the scary part, though: Doctors have refused Herbert’s request for having “abs of steel” after they found he was injecting himself with poisonous, illegal fillers. The fillers caused him to develop spots and bumps all through his body.

12. Toby Sheldon to Justin Bieber
The Los Angeles Times reports Toby Sheldon wanted nothing more than to resemble his favorite pop star, Justin Bieber. While he underwent typical surgeries such as liposuction, lip fillers, and fat injections, he also had at least six hair transplants to get that signature Bieber ‘do. His surgeries, in total, ran him at least $100,000.
In 2013, Toby told Bethenny Frankel that only death would stop him from more surgical modifications. Oddly enough, he passed away in 2015 from reasons unrelated to his cosmetic work.

13. Mikki Jay to Michael Jackson
We all know Michael Jackson is no stranger to plastic surgery — so of course an impersonator of the King of Pop would undergo such procedures as well. Mikki Jay, a middle-aged mom of three, has spent well over $13,000 to look like the star. Her surgeries included a nose job and chin and cheek alterations to achieve that signature Jackson face, says The Sun.
While most of us are wondering why you’d ever want to look as severe as Michael Jackson, Mikki says she makes over $100,000 a year working as the impersonator, so she’s happy with the results.

Surgery aside, he’s also spent at least $100,000 in costumes and jewelry to match Madonna, The Huffington Post reports.

After $25,000 spent, she had a breast augmentation, liposuction, rhinoplasty, and fat injections in her cheeks.
