“Human Ken Doll” Has Had 90 Plastic Surgeries (PHOTOS)
Oftentimes, when we read about body dysmorphic disorder and the pressure to look “perfect”, it’s women who are at the center of the issue. But while we may not talk about it as often, body pressure undoubtedly exists for men too.
Take Justin Jedlica, for example. This 32-year-old wants nothing more than to look like a “Ken doll”, and so far he’s had over 90 plastic surgeries and spent over $100,000 in his quest for perfection. Justin has had silicone implants in his chest, arms, stomach, butt, and more, to mimic the appearance of bulging muscles. Why not just work out, you ask?
Justin calls working out, “so not exciting — not glamorous.”
He has also had countless other surgeries on his face, including five on his nose, to give him the look he desires.
Justin’s obsession with plastic surgery could pose a great risk to his health. In a video for ABC News, Dr. Drew Ordin, a plastic surgeon, says that Justin is “jeopardizing his health,” by putting all that silicone into his body. But although Justin knows the risks, he doesn’t plan on stopping any time soon.
“I love to metamorphosize[sic] myself, and the stranger the surgery the better,” he says.
When we look at Justin, it seems clear that his obsession with plastic surgery is unhealthy, and possibly even indicative of a mental disorder such as body dysmorphic disorder. But what about the doctors who continue to provide him with surgeries that are potentially putting his life at risk? Should they be held accountable for possibly taking advantage of someone with a mental illness, or is the entirety of the responsibility on Justin to make his own decisions?
