Bieber Look-Alike Campaigns for More Cosmetic Surgery
Last year, in an attempt to look like Justin Bieber, L.A. based songwriter, Toby Sheldon, spent over $100,000 and gained a bit a fame to boot. This year, he's hit the entertainment circuit once more by sharing, lightheartedly, about his surgical snafu.
Appearing on Botched, E!'s series sharing plastic surgeries gone wrong, Sheldon shared why things did not go as planned.
As a 33-year-old, it was a far stretch to look like an 18-year-old, nevermind the age that Bieber is right now. He's also had several other procedures done to mimic Bieber's look, including hair transplants, liposuction, laser hair therapy, multiple facial cosmetic surgeries and Aquamid injections.
Sheldon explained, "I had my lips done, my upper lip lifted … in this kind of permanent smirk, like Justin has, my lower lip lifted to hide more of the bottom teeth … he has a six-pack, so I got some liposuction."
"It's Justin's smile that gives him his youthful look. So I had my upper lip lifted [and] my bottom lip plumped out," he added.
Despite his many failed attempts to alter his image and look more like his young Canadian mentor, Sheldon shared details with Botched's plastic surgeons, Dr. Terry Dubrow and Dr. Paul Nassif, in an attempt to win the doctors over so they would work on reducing his forehead and jaw.
And while both doctors on the program stressed such surgeries may result in Sheldon looking like a Neanderthal, because of the required insertion of tissue expanders that would make his forehead jut out, Sheldon replied with, "It's two months of misery for a lifetime of happiness," adding he'd just wear a hat for a while.
Both doctors turned him down on his request for those surgeries, which did not faze Sheldon, who shared with People, "I've been turned down by tens and tens of surgeons before and look what happened." He knows someone will do the job.
Botched is a show featured on E! where two plastic surgeons fix failed plastic surgeries, should the offer be tempting and convincing.
Sheldon's case was obviously not strong enough to persuade the Dubrow and Nassif to attempt any further adjustments.
