Superfan Spends $100,000 on Surgery
How far would you go to look like your favorite celebrity? Would you change your hair? Lose some weight? Get new clothes? Would plastic surgery be an option? For one 33-year-old songwriter, the answer is yes.
Toby Sheldon knows all about the Hollywood lime light and how to get it focused right on top of him. The Los Angeles native wants to make it big in show business, looking up to several artists for experience. But one singer in particular has caught his attention, Justin Bieber, and for good reason. After all, the Canada singer and performer has wooed the hearts of women – and men – alike with his sultry tunes and catchy dance beats. But for Sheldon, his admiration of Justin Bieber runs a little deeper than most. So deep, in fact, that he underwent plastic surgery to look like the 19-year-old pop star.
Sheldon has already had several procedures to attain the classic Bieber look, including Botox, a chin reduction and eyelid surgery, which he admitted to the Daily Mail. Beginning with Bieber’s signature frock, Sheldon began his transformation with hair implants, taking a picture of the singer to his surgeons to make sure he got the exact look what he wanted. The uber Bieber fan spent a whopping $21,000 in hair transplants, lowering his hair line and growing bangs – a small price to pay, he says, for achieving the Bieber look.
But Sheldon didn’t stop there. He began to change other aspects of himself to maintain Bieber’s youthful appearance as well as to fend off his self-proclaimed phobia of aging.
So what exactly does Sheldon admire most about Bieber that led him to such a radical transformation? Well, it’s not his music, that’s for sure.
“I didn’t necessarily listen to his music or fawn over him as a celebrity,” admitted Sheldon.
Instead, it was Bieber’s “flawless face” that sparked Sheldon’s interest in undergoing plastic surgery.
Once he perfected the Bieber hair style, Sheldon went ahead and had Botox and Aquamid injections to his face and lips. He then spent almost $5,000 on eyelid surgery before undergoing his latest plastic surgery procedures, a three part smile surgery. Bieber’s smile, to Sheldon, was the cherry on top of his Bieber transformation sundae.
“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,” said Sheldon to the British tabloid. “But the more I started studying Justin and young people in general it’s really their smile that gives them their youthful glow.”
So far, Sheldon admits to spending over $100,000 in plastic surgery to look like Bieber, and he doesn’t plan on stopping any time soon. According to the super fan, there’s still more work to be done in order to achieve the full Bieber look, including Rhinoplasty and jaw reduction surgery.
