You’ve seen them everywhere. You know about them. You might even be one yourself. Who am I talking about? People who pay tons of money on plastic surgery to look like a certain celebrity. We’ve seen the guy who spent thousands upon thousands to look like a Ken doll, and the guy who spent about the same to look like Justin Bieber. Well now, there’s a new member of the club: former model Jennifer Pamplona.
The 24-year-old from São Paulo in Brazil has spent over $180,000 on plastic surgery after her modeling days, around 2 and a quarter of that amount ($80,000) was spent on looking like her idol, reality TV star and model Kim Kardashian, despite constant warnings from doctors that going under the knife so many times can threaten her health and even her life.
The former Versace model was cast for a TV show and she met plastic surgery fanatic Celso Santebañes. He was one of the Human Ken Dolls of the world, and he had also spent thousands of dollars to achieve the look of his idol, but after a short battle with leukemia he died at the age of 21, and it was hard for Jennifer to cope with the pain.
“It all started after my boyfriend passed away, when I found plastic surgery was the only thing that made me feel good. When he died I was devastated, I never imagined something like that could happen while we were so young.”
Shortly after Celso’s death, Jennifer was invited to go under the knife on television, and after doing so, she found out that the surgeries helped her depression.
“I was invited to change my body on a TV show shortly after he died and I chose to continue his dreams of turning me into a curvy Barbie doll for him… Some girls love shopping, buying stuff like bags and shoes, but me I love to go to the doctors for a surgery or procedure, it makes everything perfect… It was a way to love myself, it helped me so much in my personal life and career, it was the best decision I’ve made in my life.”
She’s now a model once again as well as a television personality, and she has her sights firmly set on emulating Kim Kardashian’s curves, and even surpassing them.
“I fell in love with surgery a long time ago, but after seeing Kim Kardashian, I wanted to look like and have curves like her. Now I’m determined to get a larger butt than her. Everyone tells me I don’t need to put any more in, but in my mind, I need to do it because surgery helps my self-esteem a lot.”
Even after injecting 500ml (16 fluid ounces) of Brazilian butt implants, and even after constant advising from doctors that she shouldn’t carry on with procedures anymore, Jennifer is committed and determined to getting the Kardashian body she wants.
“Surgeons have said it’s not possible, they think I’m too exaggerated and that I don’t need any more fat injected but I’m determined to make it happen. They tell my body type is too small to be like Kim Kardashian but I’ll keep fighting doctors to get it looking like hers. Now I get told that I have lips like Kylie Jenner and that I’m getting close to having a butt like Kim Kardashian.”
