One Woman Spent $120,000 to Look Like a Cartoon Character

Some women will go to any length to get the body of their dreams. Case in point: Pixee Fox, who recently spent a reported $120,000 on plastic surgery to attain the figure of her favorite cartoon characters, Jessica Rabbit and Tinker Bell. “I’ve always been inspired by cartoons and Disney movies—all the curves and tiny waists,” she told Barcroft TV. New York plastic surgeon Paul Lorenc, MD, says modeling yourself after a cartoon character defies aesthetic proportions, which clearly can be seen in pictures of her.
So how did Fox rack up more than $100,000 in plastic surgery bills? Easily, considering the amount of procedures she has had done over the years, which include four nose jobs, eyelid surgery, a browlift, fillers, liposuction, multiple breast surgeries, a Brazilian butt lift, permanent makeup, and her most recent procedure, having six ribs removed for more of an hourglass figure, which measures in with a 16-inch waist.
Fox purportedly said she had a hard time finding a doctor who would remove her ribs. “When you go as far as removing ribs, it can become hazardous,” says Dr. Lorenc. In fact, rib removal is a rare surgery that most board-certified plastic surgeons will not perform. “When you remove ribs, you can start to experience respiratory issues because the ribs make up the thoracic cavity, which protects your lungs. It’s also important to know that this type of surgery is irreversible. Once you decide to make a rash decision to remove your ribs for cosmetic reasons, they can't be put back in.”See her story below.
