'Human Ken Doll' Justin Jedlica explains why he spent over $1 million on 1,000 surgeries

Justin Jedlica has had countless surgeries over the years

The man known as the ‘Human Ken Doll’ has explained why he spent over $1 million to have over 1,000 surgeries.

Internet personality Justin Jedlica has insisted that all the procedures he’s had aren’t purely due to aesthetics.

During an interview on Channel 7's Morning Show on Tuesday (7 November), the 43-year-old told hosts Matt Doran and Kylie Gillies that he’s ‘enamoured’ by body modifications.

“I am always just about change,” he said. “I’m enamoured with our abilities to be able to modify our bodies. For me, it’s an artistic and creative endeavour that pulls me back to it.”

Justin continued: “It’s not necessarily about just always looking younger, as much as just being the most presentable version and customising yourself to the way that you choose.”

Not only has Justin had over 1,000 cosmetic procedures, he has 23 implants and had a deep plane facelift, a trinity lift (mid-face lift), a temporal suspension, a brow lift and an upper lid lift on his birthday this year.

On the show, he also shared that he flew out to Turkey for the cosmetic procedures.

“It was something that I wanted for a while and it was harder to find doctors here [U.S.] that were willing to do that with me,” Justin added.

Justin has spent over $1 million on cosmetic procedures.

Justin became well-known in Australia back in 2017 after he took a selfie alongside Malcolm Turnbull who was Prime Minister at the time.

He gained international fame after appearing on an episode of Botched.

In 2015 he had a procedure to remove what he called his ‘Julia Roberts’ veins’ from his forehead, marking his most dangerous procedure ever.

Justin also underwent a four-piece back enhancement surgery using implants he crafted himself.

“I have a reputation of being one of the most extreme plastic surgery addicts in the world and I love continuing to push the limits,” he told MailOnline at the time.

“As an artist I’ve always enjoyed drawing and sculpting and for me plastic surgery is an extension of my creativity.”

Justin has had over a thousand cosmetic procedures.

He’s also had shoulder implants and augmentations to his cheeks, lips, buttocks and chin.

Justin shared: “But as a very detail oriented person I always find something new to critique and fix.

“Most recently I had three veins in my forehead stripped and ablated as every time I would smile or laugh they would pop out.

“I called them my ‘Julia Roberts’ veins. It was a high-risk procedure because there was a possibility I would go blind as they needed to go through the inside of my eyelids in order to burn the veins off.

“But after being turned away by several surgeons, including Dr. Terry Dubrow from Botched, the procedure turned out perfectly.”
