They say imitation is the most genuine form of flattery, so celebrities must feel some sort of pride and accomplishment when some fans go to great lengths to copy their “look”. Here are some interesting fans whose stories are certainly newsworthy, as well as highlight the power of plastic surgery and how it really can make dreams come true!
Regular People Who Transformed Into Celebrities With Plastic Surgery
1. Toby Sheldon as Justin Bieber
Toby Sheldon, aka Tobias Strebel, a Los Angeles singer and songwriter spent five years of various plastic surgery procedures to look exactly like Justin Bieber, despite the 14 year age difference he had with him. He went for the whole package with procedures performed on the temple, cheeks, lips, eyes, and even the special framing. He was truly a “Belieber”.
2. Lisa Connell as Demi Moore
Lisa Connell, a terminal cancer patient, announced that she wanted like to look like Demi Moore so she could die beautiful. The “Ghost” actress made frantic attempts to stop Lisa from undergoing the procedure telling her that she was beautiful just the way she is via Twitter. However, this did not stop Connell. Instead, she turned to plastic surgery to make her dream become reality using liposuction, breast implants, an eyebrow lift, and many alterations to her skin and teeth. Truly a touching story.
3. Myla Sinanaj as Kim Kardashian
Myla Sinanaj is Kris Humphries’ ex. Kim Kardashian is also Kris Humphries’ ex. Myla enjoys personally competing with Kim Kardashian so much that she turned to plastic surgery in order to directly compete with her. She underwent cosmetic procedures including breast implants, lip injections, and lower back liposuction in an attempt to make her body look more like that of the reality TV star. Who do you believe looks better?
4. Ashley Horn as Lindsay Lohan
Lindsay’s “long lost” half-sister, Ashley, performed five procedures at age 18 to look like her sister. The procedures included rhinoplasty, fat injections in her chin and upper cheeks, and some refinement underneath her cheeks and jawline. After careful inspection, her results turned out quite nice.
5. Miki Jay as Michael Jackson
The UK resident and mother of three, Miki Jay, became obsessed with the King of Pop after winning a talent show in 1991. She had procedures performed on her nose, cheeks, and chin to look like Jackson. Her change seems to have been profitable as she claims to make $240,000 annually as a professional impersonator. Plastic surgery pays off in more than one way!
The Change is Real
Plastic surgeries have been known to not only transform a person’s image, but also boost their confidence and self-esteem. Many people feel happier with their new look, and while looking like a particular star may not necessarily give them the same influence that the celebrity has, it must feel nice to occasionally be mistaken for that star!
