Man spends $100K on surgery to look like Justin Bieber
Question of the Day
A 33-year-old Los Angeles songwriter has spent his life savings on surgeries to look like 19-year-old pop star Justin Bieber.
Toby Sheldon had several Botox injections, hair transplants, a chin reduction and eyelid surgery, and he has no intention of slowing down until he looks identical to the pop singer, he told the Daily Mail.
“Once Justin shot to fame his face was everywhere and I all I kept thinking when I saw his picture was, ‘I want to look like him,’” he said. “It took three [hair] transplants and a total of $21,000 to accurately lower my hair line, close off my temples and grow back my bangs.”
The songwriter said that even though he’s a fan of the singer, his surgeries reflect more of a fear of aging. His most recent procedure was to achieve an award-winning smile.
“When I first sought out to look like Justin I only paid attention to specific aspects of his boyish look like his hair and the structure of his face, but the more I started studying Justin and young people in general it’s really their smile that gives them their youthful glow,” he said.
The Daily Mail reported Mr. Sheldon has spent more than $100,000 in savings in to achieving the superstar’s baby face.
“I know there is more work to be done in order to make a full transformation into Justin Bieber’s doppelganger like a nose job and jaw reduction, which my surgeon has suggested,” he told the Mail.
