A 33-year old avid fan of Justin Bieber spent five years and a total of $100,000 just to look like him.
Toby Sheldon, a songwriter from Los Angeles, underwent different cosmetic surgeries to achieve the "Wait for a Minute" singer's youthful look.
Sheldon’s obsession with his physical looks started when he was 23. He began having treatments for his thinning hair and took off when Justin Bieber hit off the screens in 2008. Upon seeing Bieber the first time, Sheldon became “in love” with Bieber’s looks.
Sheldon told the Daily Mail, “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.’”
The avid Bieber fan spent $8,000 on hair transplants to thicken his thinning blond locks, but he wasn’t very satisfied so he showed his surgeon a photo of Bieber and told him he wanted his hair to look like Bieber’s. He told Daily Mail, “It took three transplants and a total of $21,000 to accurately lower my hair line, close off my temples and grow back my bangs.”
After getting what he wants with his hair, Sheldon, who is scared of aging, continued with the other aspects.
He said, “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.”
In his pursuit to look young, Sheldon had his face and lips plumped up with filler. He underwent Botox and had Aquamid injections in his temples and forehead.
In 2012, he spent a total of $4,850 on eye surgery to lift his upper eyelids. However, Sheldon said, “It took going to eight different surgeons before anyone would agree to operate on me as everyone thought I was crazy to be obsessing over such a tiny detail.”
Sheldon underwent a three-part smile surgery recently to copy Bieber’s boyish smile. This one has literally upturned his frown.
Furthermore, to give him a “perma-smile,” Sheldon's Beverly Hills plastic surgeon lifted his upper lip, turned out his bottom lip and turned up the corners of his mouth for $30,000.
He also had liposuction on his chin to smoothen out his smile. The fat removed from his chin was then transferred to his lips, hands, and under his eyes.
Even after a total of $100,000 plastic surgeries and people mistaking him as the 19-year old pop singer, Sheldon says that he still hasn’t achieved his dream look.
