The latest in the list of celebrity-inspired plastic surgeries is a British woman who reportedly spent $30,000 to undergo procedures to look like Kim Kardashian.
According to the report, 24-year-old Clare Leeson wanted to mimic Kim Kardashian after she became obsessed with the reality star. She was also being bullied about her looks and wanted to do something about it. She underwent a number of minor and major cosmetic procedures including breast enhancement surgery and says that she is saving for a rear end implant to resemble her 33-year-old idol.
The Internet is full of stories of men and women who spent thousands of dollars to look like someone they admired. Last year, a woman called Myla Sinanaj is believed to have spent about the same sum as Leeson to get a body that looks like Kim K’s — in the hope that it would launch her career. The procedures she underwent included liposuction, lip injections and implants.
Others in the celebrity lookalike fad bandwagon include Toby Sheldon who spent $100,000 to look like Justin Bieber with hair transplants, lip surgery and liposuction, Donna Marie Trego who spent $120,000 to resemble Lady Gaga, and Kitty who spent $25,000 on six surgeries including liposuction, breast implants, rhinoplasty and fat grafts to look like Jennifer Lawrence.
Cosmetic surgery is now safe, efficient and convenient, and not just the privilege of celebrities. Owing to the increase in the demand, innovative technologies are being developed each year make the procedures simpler, safer, and most important – even more effective and with longer-lasting results.
