Surgery addicts consider themselves to be the real life Barbie and Ken
SURGERY addicts Pixee Fox and Justin Jedlica have vowed to live as the real life ‘Ken and Barbie’ - after their plastic obsessions destroyed their love lives.
Model Pixee, 26, has had 17 ops, including removing six ribs, four boob jobs and lipo – all paid for by savings and male fans.
Justin, 35, has had more than 340 cosmetic procedures including five rhinoplasties and shoulder, back, cheek, bicep and bum implants.
But it’s come at another price: Justin has just divorced his husband of three years, while Pixee is determined not to let a relationship get in the way of her extreme plastic-surgery plans.
The looks-obsessed duo - who have spent a combined £380,000 on procedures - met while filming a TV show and bonded over their love of going under the knife.
Pixee is having hip and bum implants later this year and plans to have surgery at the same time as Justin so they can recover together.
She said: “For the time being we’ve both given up on love. We’re committed to surgery, and won’t stop until we’ve achieved our dream look."
“It’s easy to get the attention but it’s hard to find somebody who is actually willing to be a part of the lifestyle - because we are a lifestyle."
“People don’t realise the commitment it takes to look like this."
“Surgery is my focus and I don’t have time for a man."
“I work out for five hours a day to keep my figure; love is the last thing on my mind.”
Surgery consultant Justin, who lives in Los Angeles, is unable to comment on his divorce due to a confidentiality agreement.
But he says extreme plastic surgery - and the celebrity that comes with it - has been damaging to his search for love.
He said: "I have a reputation for being one of the world’s most extreme surgery addicts and I love pushing the limits."
“I designed my own back implants, but I want them changed as I’m not happy with them."
“I’m using dating apps but haven’t met anyone special. There are not that many people like me so it narrows the pool down."
“I tend to look for a guy who is nice and sweet and chivalrous - and who I can have a nice comfortable life with."
“I am open to dating - and I am looking. I have been using different apps but day-to-day it doesn’t always happen."
“People have a perception of me from TV and think the first thing I am going to be interested in is looks - but it’s not."
“It seems to create this weird distance.”
Leaving school, Pixee – who had her first relationship aged 18 – had a £1,560 nose job, and her first boob job, going from an A-cup to a C, aged 19.
After splitting from her boyfriend in 2013, her surgery obsession escalated, and she had two further boob jobs to go to a J-cup, and a butt lift.
In October last year, she had a £7k, five-hour keyhole op to have six lower ribs removed.
She said: “I liked the hourglass look and wanted to look like a cartoon character.”
Then, in January this year, she met Justin In Los Angeles and immediately hit it off.
Pixee, from Stockholm, Sweden, said: “I’d seen Justin on TV before and admired him."
“He gave me surgery tips and had been through the same journey – we’re often judged for our looks and we instantly bonded."
“People commented on how we looked like Barbie and Ken and we loved the attention.
“Our love is a plastic love”
For now both Justin and Pixee are happily single.
Pixee added: “I see my body as a work of art. While I have dated, I don’t have time for a proper boyfriend."
“I need someone completely supportive – nothing can get in the way of achieving my dream.”
