Justin Jedlica is a Slovak-American male model renowned for having had over 950 plastic surgeries. Justin Jedlica has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to achieve this feat that has earned him the famous title of ‘Ken Doll’. This owes to how the surgeries have altered his looks to resemble that of a doll.
Justin Jedlica was Born 43 Years Ago in New York
Justin William Jedlica was born on August 11, 1980, to William and Tanya Jedlica in Poughkeepsie, New York. He is the first of four children raised in Fishkill, New York by their devout Roman Catholic faith parents.
For his high school education, the celebrity attended Apex High School. During those years, he discovered that he loved all forms of art – painting, sculpting, music, performing, etc. and he was talented at these things too.
Unfortunately for young Justin, he could not follow his dream because his father, a conservationist, believed that art and its likes were meant for the feminine gender. He believed that his son should participate in activities like sports, and this did not go well with the would-be model, thus school life was difficult for him.
He was Raised in a Dysfunctional Home
Not only was Justin Jedlica very strict with his kids, he often resorted to punishing them physically although he was neither a drunk nor an addict. He extended his physical punishment to his wife and this got Justin so upset that he confronted him sometimes, and at other times, he would contact the authorities.
His mother, on the other hand, had tried leaving her husband due to the physical abuse, but their belief and religious values made it difficult for her. In addition to the opposition her religion posed, she lacked the financial capacity to live by herself at that time. However, after Jedlica turned 18, Tanya finally divorced her husband.
Jedlica Took Solace From the Entrancing Lifestyle of the Celebrities He Admired
Growing up in a low-income household, the model found the lifestyle of celebrities fascinating. The beauty and elegance they displayed on TV shows and magazines made him want to be like them. He wished for his family to possess the kind of wealth these stars flaunted. To him, they were all perfect and they looked like they all had plastic surgeries.
He idolized people like Joan Rivers, Michael Jackson, and Dolly Parton and looked up to them for his views on beauty, lifestyle, and fame. However, his poor background always jolted him back to reality. He knew that he could not afford such a lifestyle at that time, but he believed that one day, he would become an adult, and will be in a better place where he can afford to improve his looks.
Justin Jedlica’s Body Modification Journey Started in 1997
While Justin was still in high school, he was already thinking seriously about improving his physical appearance. He was particularly conscious about his nose because he thought it was too big. He started looking for a plastic surgeon that could help him. His parents were strongly against his decision and because he was only 17 years old at the time, he had to wait till he became an adult.
In 1997, four days after his eighteenth birthday, the human ken doll had his first plastic surgery. It was a rhinoplasty, a procedure he had always thought about since he was fourteen years old. He had always wanted to have a smaller nose. The result of his first surgery convinced the celebrity that he can make himself into the flawless beauty he had always admired as a child.
Following his decision, Justin left the house he grew up in, to find himself another house in North Carolina. Since he is gay, he would dress in drag to perform at places like Legends Nightclub in Raleigh. At that time, he also owned a company that supplied faux paint finishes for interior designers.
According to Justin Jedlica, rhinoplasty was the first of his five nose procedures, and the only surgery he ever did for the sake of his self-confidence. After that first procedure, every other time he got under the knife was because he wanted to try something new, to explore his creative and artistic side. He was not trying to conform to the beauty standard of society but to make himself into whatever he loves.
One of the riskiest surgeries Justin has ever had was getting the veins on his forehead stripped. Despite being informed of the risk, he insisted on getting on with it. Most doctors were hesitant, but Dr. Leif Rogers was excited to help Jedlica with his surgery, but not without mentioning that the surgery was experimental as he had never done it before. Good for the model, everything came out fine.
Moreso, it seems like his mother has come to terms with his chosen part, and is very supportive of him as she has also had her own share of cosmetic surgery. The celebrity revealed that one of his many procedures was a facelift he did, which was a matching facelift with his mother.
He Designs His Surgeries and Has Had Over 950 Plastic Surgical Enhancements
Unlike most people who go for plastic surgeries, the model takes an active part in his own procedures. He comes up with ideas and concepts for his surgeries, then designs a custom implant for himself. He likes to speak of himself as an inventor and a guinea pig. In his opinion, someone has to take the lead in making new discoveries for cosmetic procedures.
In the past twenty-four years, Justin Jedlica has had more than 950 plastic surgeries for which he has spent over $1 million. For him, he is not concerned about the money, but the result he gets as he sees it as a way of giving back to society. He believes his discoveries will help not just people who love cosmetic surgery, but also those who actually need reconstruction due to birth defects or severe accident injuries.
Some of the multiple facial and body procedures he has done to achieve his hot bod include;
- Chest Implants
- Shoulder Implants
- Biceps Implants
- Triceps Implants
- Brow Shaving and Lifts
- Subpectoral Implants
- Calf Implants
- Thigh Implants
- Cheek and Lip Augmentations.
Although most of the surgeries turned out good, the human ken doll admits that not all procedures are completely successful or even 90% right. However, he tries to learn something new from such procedures and asks his doctor to revisit it till they have something close to perfection.
Justin Jedlica is not slowing down his quest for perfection. Despite setting world records as the first person in history to have a 3-piece leg implant and a 4-piece back implant, he still intends for more extreme surgeries. Although he has not revealed the exact procedures he will be going for next, the self-acclaimed inventor is looking to make more discoveries.
How Does Justin Jedlica Get Money To Fund His Surgical Procedures?
Having come this far in the industry, some doctors offer to do some of Justin Jedlica’s surgeries for free and gain fame through him. Nonetheless, the eccentric fellow has things he does to earn enough money to fund most of his surgeries, especially the major ones.
Jedlica has a website “justinjedlica.com” where he refers to himself as a self-professed artist and pioneer of modifiable male aesthetics. He considers himself a self-taught plastic surgery expert who stays up-to-date with the latest industry breakthroughs and innovations.
He offers consultancy services to people who are either seeking advice on how to improve their bodies or on the best doctor to visit to get the best result for different types of surgery. Aside from that, he also designs custom implants for his clients. He takes into consideration their desires and anatomy.
Justin Jedlica is Openly Gay and was First Married in 2014
Justin Jedlica has not hidden his sexuality from the public as he is known openly as a gay man. In the past, he was married to a business tycoon whose identity he has kept away from the media. The duo got married in 2014, but they separated about two years later in 2016.
During their years together, they lived in Trump Tower and his partner was supportive of his plastic surgeries. In fact, he said that was one of the things he liked about him the most. However, it turned out that his plastic surgeries happened to be the reason his partner left him after two years of marriage.
After his separation, Jedlica went out in search of love again. He met with the real-life Barbie doll, Pixxe Fox, who also suffered a breakup because she was obsessed with surgery, but they didn’t seem to be a good match. He then decided to feature in the Millionaire Matchmaker show in 2016, hoping that Patti Stanger would help him find love.
Although he was set up for a few blind dates, he does not seem to be as lucky with love as he is with surgeries. Most of his dates never turned out successful as he reportedly spent a better part of the date talking about his implants and surgeries, thereby making almost everything about him. Hardly anyone can tolerate that. However, he is said to be working on improving it.
He is Currently in a Throuple (Relationship With Two Partners and Himself)
Seems like he actually improved on himself because, in 2019, Qnews revealed that the model was in a throuple relationship. He did not just find someone to love, but two people. Although he lives in Los Angeles, his boyfriends Stephen Walden and Jayson McNaughton both live in Melbourne. This causes him to shuttle between Los Angeles and Melbourne regularly.
Strange as it may seem to many, the three young men love the relationship they have together. They love taking trips together and they love and trust one another like family. Of the three, McNaughton is a dentist and he donates to the Liberal Party.
At some point, Justin wanted to take advantage of his boyfriend’s influence by lobbying political leaders on LGBTIQ rights. This was because he experienced bullying and discrimination due to his sexuality.
Did Justin Jedlica Get a Penile Procedure Because He is Gay?
As with most of his surgical procedures, Justin was simply experimenting with different penile procedures. His decision to enhance his penis had nothing to do with his sexuality, or at least he never admitted that it did. His conversation with the Botched doctors revealed that he was trying out different things to see what the result would be.
According to the human Ken doll, the first time he tried out a procedure on his penis, it was a silicone implant. Not satisfied, or perhaps out of curiosity, he went on to do micro-needling on his penis, and Scrotox, which is injecting Botox into his scrotum. These particular experiments were not without consequences as he confessed that he had to deal with abrasions all over that region due to the procedure.
It is possible that the first surgery he did with silicone may have contributed to why his ex-husband left him, but it is mere speculation as he never revealed much about it. He also did not disclose the year he got the implant, so it is hard to tell.
How Does Justin Jedlica Handle Criticisms?
As you would expect, Justin has been faced with criticisms, but he refuses to focus on that. For him, he goes the extra mile in a bid to bring about innovations in the industry. Hence, he does not agree with people who think he is addicted to cosmetic surgery. He sees it in the light of trying to create his definition of beauty, different from what the western world thinks true beauty should be.
Also reacting to the name “human ken doll”, he said in an interview that he does not disdain the name, but it makes him seem a little superficial. But for him, he considers the whole process of body modification artistic.
Justin Jedlica Might Hold the World Record of Having the Most Cosmetic Surgeries for a Long Time
It’s been twenty-four years since Justin Jedlica started his body modification journey. He has since undergone extremely risky surgeries, even those doctors advised against, but they all came out either successful or very close to success. Nonetheless, the self-trained surgical expert has no plans of slowing down.
With over 950 procedures, Justin hopes to do more. Not only because he wants to enhance his looks, but also to contribute significantly to the growth of the industry. He believes that someone has to lead the way for every advancement, and he has decided to take the lead in surgical procedures for improving men’s aesthetics.
