The real deal in body modification, Justin Jedlica - (“Ken”) - of New York City, has had 90 surgeries to get the “muscular” body and chiseled face he has today. He’s been injected with silicone throughout his body - including biceps, triceps, and buttocks - he’s had several nose jobs, and plans to continue his work. So far it has cost him about $100,000…
Jedlica, 32-years-old, didn’t exercise a bit to attain his eight-pack abdominals and sculpted physique. There’s no need for working out, which he calls “so not exciting—not glamorous,” in an ABC News video.
“I love to metamorphosize myself, and the stranger the surgery the better,” he confesses. “Bucking the norm is so much fun.”
Plastic surgeons claim the huge amount of silicone ensconced in his anatomy is life-threatening, but Jedlica says the risk is worth it for the perfect body, reports Oddity Central.
When he was young, Jedlica was concerned about the size of his nose - he thought it was enormous. Five operations later, he says it’s closer to his ideal, but not yet perfect.
What does he think of Valeria Lukyanova, the 24-year-old Ukrainian Barbie Doll? Wouldn’t it be fun if they got together?
