Skip to comments.'Human Ken Doll' Justin Jedlica's Dreamhouse is Now Trump Tower

THE LOOP Justin Jedlica has had 140 plastic surgery procedures in the last 15 years.
The 33-year-old Trump Tower resident has 12 implants in his torso that mimic shapely arm and chest muscles, 15 silicone injections in his buttocks and 11 in his face.
The spate of procedures earned him the nickname "the Human Ken Doll" when he made his first TV appearance on a 2012 20/20 special called "Extreme Plastic Surgery."
Mimicking the Mattel doll wasn't his intention when he had his first nose job shortly after his 18th birthday, but he ran with it.
Today, Jedlica makes regular appearances on talk shows and reality TV programs, where he's regarded as everything from a "junkie" on "My Strange Addiction" to a plastic surgery expert.
He hopes the latter designation will help him turn his experience into a profitable business to help fund the habit that's cost him $165,000 so far. He just needs to persuade Chicagoans that they could use a nip and tuck, too.
CHI-TOWN UNDER THE KNIFE
Since relocating to Chicago in July to be closer to his new husband's business, Jedlica hopes he can grow his plastic surgery consulting business in the Midwest.
Jedlica said his fixation on surgical body modification comes from a place of artistic creativity, not mental illness. During a recent appearance on the talk show "Bethenny," he was told he had had body dysmorphic disorder by clinical psychologist Dr. Michelle Golland, the show's go-to guest doctor.
Jedlica fired back, "I don't have body dysmorphic disorder. True body dysmorphic disorder [sufferers] ... are people who have an unrealistic vision of what they look like. When they look in the mirror, they don't see what other people see. And I think my vision is very clear."

Here is my question: If body modification via plastic surgery (gender reassignment surgery) is considered a cure to gender identity disorder, why isn't body modification via plastic surgery considered a cure to body dysmorphic disorder?
At what point will liberal organizations such as universities provide plastic surgery as part of their coverage for effeminate gay men suffering from body dysmorphic disorder?
he is a narcissist
I feel sorry for his parents
I wonder if Mitt knows he's got competition?
Vanity, all is vanity.....
He has a husband?
Well, the pic posted upthread sent my gaydar into the next county. So yes, I am not surprised he has a husband.
He looks like Janice Dickenson.
“Fishgill, NY” is presumably Fishkill, NY.
Nuttier than a fruitcake!
Yep - that flesh will look real good laying in its box someday.
There is more than one clue in this story to confirm this statement....
I like the first name better. :-)
A man that looks like this, on purpose, and after spending so much money has the nerve to tell a woman that is called ‘the human Barbie doll’ that she is a fake!
Bizarre, just bizarre.
Narcissism to the extreme.
He must be homosexual.
Uh, if you were rational and realized what all this surgery has made your face look like--you would stop.
