Meet Justin Jedlica, the man dubbed by media as the “Human Ken Doll”. His claim to fame is for being the man who has undergone the most number of plastic laser surgery procedures since the age of 18. Now aged 41, he is quite proud that his surgically chiseled features make him look like someone in his 20s, albeit somewhat comical and alien looking.
In 2016, Justin Jedlica said he had undergone more than 190 surgical operations and more than 340 cosmetic surgery procedures, which to date has yet to stop. Justin though argues that he considers himself an artist using his own body as canvas. As an artist who is expected to do more than just one painting, he does not understand why people ask him when he will ever stop.
Plastic Surgeries from Nose Job to Almost Anything Catching Justin’s Fancy
Jedlica has undergone all sorts of plastic surgery, starting with a simple nose lift that progressed to 5 nose jobs thereafter. It went on to having multiple implants; in his cheeks, pectorals, biceps, triceps, bum, abdomen, including implants he designed for his back to give the impression of wings. However, Justin underwent another surgery to have the back wing implants removed.
His other cosmetic surgery modifications included lips, chin and jaw alterations, making him the most surgically modified male to ever walk this planet.
In recent years, Justin addressed a receding hairline and thinning eyebrows by having surgical implants that required transplanting and grafting hair from the back of his head. To add pizazz, Justin even had the hair transplant surgeon add sideburns, which he said made him look more mature.
How Justin’s Plastic Surgery Ambition as a Teen Turned into a Profession
Jedlica recalls how growing up from a low income family in the Bronx made him obsessed with the idea of going through plastic surgery to change his appearance. At the age of 13, Justin started saving up; not spending cash gifts he received from relatives and family friends.
He earned the rest by working as a waiter in a local golf club where his mom worked as a personal trainer. Although he had made enough to have the nose job, he was able to go under the knife when he came of age at 18. At that age, Justin no longer needed his parent’s permission.
Since Justin was able to pull it off with the nose job being a success, it was the start of many other plastic surgeries for which he saved money. Thereafter, a photographer included multi-modified Justin in a book, through which 20/20 discovered the man they later dubbed as the °Human Ken Doll.” The show’s “Going Extremes” episode featuring Justin Jedlica went viral, opening a lot of opportunities for the “Human Ken Doll.”
Justin guested in many major international and national TV and radio programs, and has since been featured in newspapers and online publication. The appearances gave worldwide exposure to the plastic doll-like figure of Justin Jedlica, aka the “Human Ken Doll.”
Currently, Justin Jedlica resides in Beverly Hills, working as an expert plastic surgery consultant. Using his knowlege and personal experience, Justin offers consultation services for a fee and at the same time collect referral fees from plastic surgeons who operated on his clients.
