Two best friends who bonded over their love of plastic surgery claim their addiction to surgery has ruined their love lives.
Pixee Fox, 26, and Justin Jedlica, 35, have spent a staggering $493,000 (£380,000) on surgery between them over the years, from shoulder implants to liposuction.
Model Pixee, who is originally from Sweden but now lives in North Carolina, has had almost 20 procedures in the quest to sculpt the ultimate hourglass figure – including numerous breast enhancements and rib removals, while Justin, a body modification expert from Los Angeles, has been dubbed the human Ken doll because of his ambitions of becoming ‘100% plastic’.
But the pair, who met while filming a TV show about surgery, say their obsession has taken over their lives with Justin’s his three-year marriage falling apart and Pixee claiming she simply doesn’t have time for a relationship.
‘I see my body as a work of art,’ she told Closer. ‘I don’t have time for a boyfriend. I need someone completely supportive – nothing can get in the way of achieving my dream.’
Justin, meanwhile, told the magazine: ‘Both our love lives have suffered because of our surgery obsessions – my appearance always comes first and that has caused problems.
‘You can never have enough surgery, but some people can only deal with it for so long before they try to change you. Now I’m using dating apps but I haven’t met anyone special.’
Earlier this year, Pixee had permanent implants placed in her eyes to make them ‘cartoon green’.
The former electrician – who had already had a total of 18 cosmetic procedures – spent a further $6,000 (£4,100) on eye implants to further her ‘cartoon dream’.
Pixee, who is originally from near Stockholm, Sweden, has always been obsessed with cartoon characters like Jessica Rabbit and Aurora from Sleeping Beauty.
She says their curves and small waist to hip ratio represent the ideal female body.
Her 19 operations – some of which were paid for by adoring fans have helped take her measurements from 30-24-34 to an eye-watering 38-16-39.
Yet 5ft 4in Pixee is not finished yet, and plans to have custom bum and hip implants fitted in the summer with dreams of breaking the world record for the smallest waist.
‘The record right now is 15 inches and I want to go down to 14,’ said Pixee, who has more than 200,000 followers on Instagram.
‘But right now I need to recover from all the procedures. I’m just going to eat and be happy but by the end of the year I am going to go for it.’
