She Spent A Half Million To Look Like A Kardashian, What She Ended Up Looking Like Will…
A Brazilian model underwent multiple cosmetic surgeries and spend more than half a million dollars to look like Kim Kardashian but wasn’t happy after all. The model, named Jennifer Pamplona, has now spent 120 thousand dollars for her "detransition" so that she can look like herself again.
Former Versace model Jennifer Pamplona spent 600 thousand dollars on surgeries to imitate Kim Kardashian’s look and had undergone 40 procedures over a period of 12 years. Pamplona got her first surgery when she was only 17 years old. However, her desire to mimic the looks of the popular celebrity, entrepreneur, and TV personality was only short-lived.
She had a breast augmentation at only 17 years old and then became obsessed with looking curvier.
"I fell in love with surgery a long time ago, but after seeing Kim Kardashian I wanted to look like and have curves like her,” she said. "Now I'm determined to get a larger butt than her."
To get her look, Pamplona has had four ribs removed, rhinoplasty, liposuction, a fat transfer from her stomach to her butt, and fillers in her cheeks, lips, and butt. Surgeons had even refused to do more surgery on her, saying that her thin frame couldn’t support any more implants.
"Everyone tells me I don't need to put any more in, but in my mind, I need to do it,” she admitted. "I used to be bullied quite a lot in high school because I was so skinny and not as curvy as other Brazilians."
Fortunately, she has been able to parlay her fake body into a career, which might enable her to turn a profit on all her plastic surgeries. She has modeled for Versace, launched her own cosmetic line, and stars in "Plastics of Hollywood," a reality show that documents the lives of human Barbie dolls.
While some people support her dramatic looks, other people think that she is brainless and wastes her money.
"When people see me, they don't think I have a brain because of how I look, but when they hear me talk they know I'm super-smart,” Pamplona revealed. "I help a cancer institute, I help my family out, I have huge projects and plans, people definitely change their opinions about me once they have met me. I don't think there's anything wrong with what I'm doing. I am a business woman and I have everything right. I was beautiful before but plastic surgery made me perfect."
She does seem to know what she’s talking about.
If you look at the massive amounts of fame and money that Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner bring in, it seems that plastic surgery might be a good investment after all.
In 2018, Pamplona had spent over half a million on her procedures and announced that she was "retiring" from plastic surgery.
Well, the retirement didn't last too long, because Pamplona was back at it again in 2019. She had removed her lip fillers after she claimed that she received a "botched surgery" and had sworn off fillers.
Pamplona couldn't stay away from the plastic surgeon's office for too long and returned to redo her lips again.
"Even though I said I was done with surgery after being botched, I couldn't be without them. I was unable to recognise myself in the mirror — I looked like a completely different person without them.
I removed my fillers because they were botched and I wanted to teach others to accept themselves naturally — but I realized that my personality still shone through with or without them.
As a woman, I wanted to make the decision to feel this way and do what I wanted with my own body, so decided to go back to how I felt most comfortable."
Now, just a few years later, Pamplona is saying she regrets getting plastic surgery.
Now that "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" is over, Pamplona believes she will now be able to step into the spotlight. However, she's warning other young women from going under the knife in an effort to copy the Kardashians' look.
