Man Gets $100k in Plastic Surgery to Look Like Justin Bieber. Fails Miserably.
In a desperate attempt to claim the role of Justin Bieber’s doppelganger, a 33-year-old Los Angeles man named Toby Sheldon has undergone $100,000 worth of plastic surgery to look like the Canadian pop star, and he’s not done yet. It’s awkward enough that a grown man would admit to idolizing Justin Bieber, but to subject your body to Botox injections, eyelid surgery, hair implants, a chin reduction and more bad plastic surgery to look like the teenage singer is just plain embarrassing. Even worse, Sheldon doesn’t even listen to Justin Bieber’s music or obsess over him as a celebrity per say; he just finds his face “flawless.”
“Once Justin shot to fame his face was everywhere and all I kept thinking when I saw his picture was, ‘I want to look like him,'” Sheldon admitted. Unlike the thousands of “Beliebers” who probably share this thought on a daily basis though, Sheldon actually decided to go through with it, spending his entire life savings on cosmetic surgery to achieve Bieber’s look. “By using Justin’s charming baby face as my inspiration, I’ve been able to restructure my entire look to maintain a much more youthful appearance through plastic surgery.” Not just any youthful appearance though; Justin Bieber’s youthful appearance.
The latest plastic surgery procedure for Sheldon, who admits to a fear of aging, involved a three-part smile surgery, which alone cost him $30,000. The procedure lifted his upper lip, turned out his bottom lip and turned up the corners of his mouth for a more “natural and effortless smile.” He also underwent liposuction on his chin to smooth out his smile, and had the fat from his chin injected into his lips, hands and under his eyes for an extra-special touch. Unfortunately for Sheldon, like other mega-fans who undergo plastic surgery to resemble a specific celebrity, Sheldon was far better looking before his creepy quest to look like Justin Bieber began.
“I know there is more work to be done in order to make a full transformation into Justin Bieber’s doppelganger,” says Sheldon, “like a nose job and jaw reduction, which my surgeon has suggested.” But for now, the 33-year-old songwriter is confident that he is looking more and more like his 19-year-old idol every day. How does he know? Well, he was recently turned away from a liquor store because they didn’t believe he was 33. Oh, and his friends call him Toby Beiber. Well, I guess that $100,000 was well spent than!
