Over 20 years ago, Dennis Avner began his bizarre surgical transformation on his quest to alter his looks into that of a tiger. His unusual surgeries, body modification and tattoos made him somewhat of a media sideshow and he appeared on many high-profile programs throughout the years. In the underground world of bod mod, Avner, or “Stalking Cat”, as he liked to be called, was looked up to and held in the highest regard by fellow body modifiers. Unfortunately the story of Stalking Cat has come to an untimely end, and it has been confirmed that Dennis Avner was found dead at his home on November 5th. Avner was 54-years old.
Avner became well-known around the world as ‘Catman’ and became an inspiration to many people in the underground world of body modification. Many of the body modifications that he underwent had never been performed before, such as: septum relocation to flatten the nose and bifurcation of the upper lip. And while Avner’s transformation caused quite a bit of attention, he was always the first to admit that he had, “found fame, but not fortune.”
The cause of death has not been released, but due to what some called his “troubled nature”, rumor has it that Dennis “Stalking Cat” Avner ended his own life.

Move over Sarah Burge – a.k.a. the human Barbie – Ken is in town! After so many women have attempted to transform themselves into real-life Barbie dolls, it was only a matter of time before Ken entered the picture. Justin Jedlica of New York City has followed in the footsteps of so many poor, unfortunate souls who feel the need to live out some kind of unnatural plastic fantasy, undergoing 90 cosmetic procedures over the past ten years to re-create himself as a human Ken doll.
After spending nearly $100,000 on dozens and dozens of plastic surgery procedures, including a cheek augmentation, several nose jobs, butt implants and pectoral implants, Justin Jedlica is apparently pleased with his appearance, although I can’t imagine why. Instead of the naturally-sculpted physique most people get from going to the gym – a chore that Justin calls “not exciting, glamorous or fabulous” – the 32-year-old has gone under the knife for pectoral, bicep and tricep implants to achieve his chiseled look.
Justin’s obsession with plastic surgery and achieving the “perfect” body image started when he decided to get a nose job in his mid-twenties. Since then, he has had four more nose jobs – each one “not as extreme and exaggerated as I wanted” – and numerous other procedures to alter his body and face. He is now pumped with a significant amount of silicone, and says that his look is “closer to…the picture that I have in my head.” He is certainly not finished improving his appearance though, and when asked if he is concerned about how his body will hold up to all this work, he responded, “I understand the risks…and I’m willing to take those on.”
What Mr. Jedlica has made it painfully clear he is NOT willing to take on though, is Valeria Lukyanova, a 21-year-old from Ukraine who has reportedly spent $800,000 making herself look like yet another real-life Barbie. Apparently she is just a little too real for Justin. “A true ‘body mod’ individual – such as myself – LIVES with a conviction to their alterations and doesn’t wash them off,” he said of Lukyanova. “I can appreciate that she is a talented artist, but if at the end of the day she is only presenting this ‘human Barbie doll’ on days the camera is filming…I’m not sure just how much credibility I would give her in being a REAL human Barbie.” Darn, that would have been some perfect plastic love right there.
It’s obvious that Justin has devoted quite a bit of time, effort and money to portray himself as the perfect man, a.k.a. the human Ken doll. Unfortunately, the only thing that Mr. Jedlica has in common with the Ken doll is that he is now made primarily of plastic and probably won’t be able to do much more than grin and move his head from side to side if he keeps filling his body with silicone. If you ask us, Justin Jedlica is nothing more than a modern day Frankenstein, just a bit more flamboyant.

You’ve heard of women undergoing plastic surgery to look like Pamela Anderson or getting a lift here and a tuck there to revamp their overall image. But have you heard the one about a woman spending over $320,000 and going under the knife for 51 different cosmetic procedures, all in an effort to look like the Egyptian Queen Nefertiti? Well, 52-year-old Nileen Namita of the UK did just that, and the before and after pictures of the formerly-normal-looking British woman are pretty shocking.
Nefertiti – whose name means “the beautiful one has come” – is history’s most famous “Queen” of Ancient Egypt, and was known far and wide as a beautiful woman in ancient Egyptian times. Take a look at the 3,300-year-old bust of Nefertiti, and you’ll see why she is still considered an iconic figure in regards to female beauty today. Apparently, Nileen Namita admires Nefertiti’s reputation as a beautiful woman, but she seems to have taken her admiration a little too far.
obsessive and creepy incredible plastic surgery transformation began back in 1987, when she suddenly decided that she had lived as Nefertiti in a past life. So why not live as her in her current life as well? In order to achieve this goal, the mother of three spent hundreds of thousands of dollars and underwent more than 50 plastic surgery procedures to reform her face into an exact replica of Queen Nefertiti. Among her plastic surgeries were three facelifts, eight nose jobs, one eyebrow lift, three chin implants, six mini facelifts, five eye surgeries, two lip surgeries, and 20 minor tweaks, and she isn’t done just yet. As Nileen says, “I would like my lips to be made a little finer and plan to have some more surgery on my nose to even out my nostrils.”
According to the 52-year-old, “Throughout my childhood and teen years, I had constant vivid dreams of this ancient queen. They were visions of incredible intensity – I could see where she lived, her servants, her rooms, even the food she ate – and although at first I found the dreams frightening, I began to research what they meant. Aged 23, I underwent psychoanalysis with a counselor. Slowly, I began to realize that I was having these dreams because I am a reincarnation of Nefertiti.” Fortunately for her children and family, she didn’t envision herself living in a past life as the Little Mermaid or Conan the Barbarian. Now she just has to learn to walk like an Egyptian and she’s all set!

Tameka “Tiny” Cottle shot to fame in the 90′s when she was a member of multi-platinum selling R&B group “Xscape”. Currently, it looks like she needs to escape from the clutches of her plastic surgeon…
Tiny, who is married to rapper TI, hit our bad plastic surgery radar with her extreme ducklips, but after digging up some old photos of the singer/songwriter, the inflated lips are just a tiny part of Tiny’s plastic surgery transformation. At 37-years old, Tiny appears to be plasticly revamped from head to toe. So what exactly has Tiny had done? It appears that she has had a nose job, lip augmentation, cheek augmentation, filler injections, Botox, breast implants, liposuction, tummy tuck and butt augmentation.
Tiny has certainly had way too much plastic surgery and it shows. But where exactly did she go wrong? As far as her face goes, we think that the plastic surgeon that did her nose job was far too aggressive and her nose looks too small and very obviously worked on. Also, judging from her joker-like smile, it appears that Tiny’s ducklips are the result of lip implants (which just never look right! See Meg Ryan). As for her body, Tiny stands only 4’11″ tall, so the large breast implants and super-sized booty just look out of place and a little bit ridiculous, especially when compared to her “Xscape” days, when she was flat as a board.
Tiny has dabbled in plastic surgery for quite a while, but it appears that when she started doing reality TV in 2009 is when she really started to go overboard. In 2009, Tiny starred in “Tiny and Toya” and she is currently filming season 2 of “TI and Tiny: The Family Hustle”. Tiny has already damaged her looks beyond repair with the overzealous plastic surgery, but if she continued on, she’s headed into Lil Kim style bad plastic surgery territory.
But don’t worry, Tiny fans! She isn’t completely plastic! We are pretty sure that her feet are au natural…

The original Bachelorette star, Trista Sutter, decided to treat herself to a “pre-40″ plastic surgery makeover back in July, and now she is suffering the awful consequences. At 39, the mother of two, who always seemed so down to earth, made a decision that surprised most everyone and went under the knife for breast implants and an eye lift. According to Trista, “I realized that the surgery was something I had to do for myself, just for my own self-confidence and to feel good about being in bathing suits and being intimate with my husband.” Take a look at before pictures of Trista…then look at after pictures. Hardly any difference, right? That’s because Trista was a natural beauty who definitely didn’t need plastic surgery to look good in a bikini. What a shame.
Three months after her cosmetic procedures, Trista is finally “starting to feel normal again,” after undergoing a plastic surgery nightmare complete with serious complications and an all-around horrific recovery. After having her boobs and eyelids done, the 39-year-old developed an allergic reaction to the antibiotic that she was prescribed to prevent getting an infection from surgery. “I was vomiting, had nausea, an all-over body rash, and the Prednisone I took to alleviate the reaction made me clinically depressed. I was constantly crying. It’s like I had a cloud over my head.” How’s that for self confidence??
Now that she’s back to her normal self – with bigger boobs and a non-droopy eyelid, that is – Trista is ready to clear up some rumors related to her cosmetic surgery. Apparently, she is not pleased with rumors that she had several surgeries in one day, including a lift. “All I had was an augmentation and my eyelids corrected – that’s only two procedures! And I did not have a lift!” Well, as long as that terribly inaccurate rumor is cleared up, we’ll also mention that Trista did plan on undergoing more plastic surgery, if it weren’t for her nightmarish recovery. Trista recently revealed that she planned to meet with her plastic surgeon yet again to fix more flaws – which included getting Botox injections and fixing the veins in her legs – but her first experience was so painful she had to cancel. And, although Trista says she doesn’t regret getting plastic surgery, she doesn’t plan on going back under the knife anytime soon, because her experience was “not fun!” That’s weird, isn’t it usually tons of fun?Tags: depression, eye lift, reality stars, The Bachelorette
Jennifer Aniston, the queen of graceful aging (a.k.a. good plastic surgery), is finally tying the knot with ‘Wanderlust’ co-star Justin Theroux – under one condition. The 43-year-old is apparently demanding that her fiancee get a nose job before their wedding day. Ouch, that conversation probably went over well. It’s not like she’s asking him to do something she wouldn’t do herself, though. Jen has put a lot of work (and money) into her appearance, after all, and she’s not about to marry a man with a beak that big!
Poor Justin probably doesn’t know what he’s gotten himself into, but Jen has definitely frequented the plastic surgeon to spruce up her face and body over the years. She has reportedly undergone two nose jobs (supposedly because of two deviated septums), breast implants, lip fillers, botox and probably even more cosmetic procedures that she has successfully hidden. Surprised? She’s 43 and she looks like she’s 30. That’s basically the definition of plastic surgery. And it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out how she got her nose to shrink so much.
So how do you think Justin reacted to Jen’s proposal? Apparently not well. According to a friend, Jennifer Aniston “nearly sparked World War III” when she suggested her beau go under the knife, and he is reportedly super mad that Jen wants him to slim down his nose. There’s no telling whether Justin will give in to Jen’s demands and follow the same plastic surgery route she has, or tell her to buzz off. We hope the two can reach some kind of compromise instead of calling off the wedding, for Jen’s sake. She can try to turn back the clock all she wants, but she’s not getting any younger!
(Where’s his face again?)
Pictures of Kim Kardashian before she had plastic surgery have supposedly been leaked and hit the internet today. The grainy pictures were posted on MediaTakeOut.com and show an average looking woman in a white bikini posing for what appears to be before pictures of some sort. There is a shot from the front, back and side, and if you ask us, it certainly does resemble what Kim Kardashian could have looked like before liposuction on her waist, back and thighs.
Although Kim Kardashian has vehemently denied having had any plastic surgery through the years, it’s pretty obvious that this girl is plastic from head to toe. With that said, we think that these recent “before” pictures could certainly be Mrs. Kardashian before all of the body work.
Kim’s current body shape appears to be the result of extensive liposuction on her hips, thighs, stomach and back, as well as a “Brazilian Butt Lift”. During a Brazilian Butt Lift, the shape of the butt is defined by liposuctioning the fat above and below the butt, and then injecting the fat back into the backside to further fill it out. The result of this procedure on someone like Kim, who is naturally heavier in the hips and butt, can actually look pretty believable, but you can tell that something is unnatural about her shape when she gains weight.
What do you think? Could these leaked before photos really be Kim Kardashian? We’re pretty confident that Kim has had a LOT of plastic surgery, but these “before” pictures conveniently have the head cutoff, which makes it hard to verify.Tags: brazilian butt lift, leaked photos
