Kim Kardashian is perhaps the most famous personality in the Kardashian family, depending on who you ask. An ex-Versace model spent nearly $600K on surgery to transform herself into a Kim Kardashian lookalike. She is finally done with keeping up with the Kardashians.
In an effort to resemble the reality celebrity, the New York Post reports that Jennifer Pamplona underwent more than 40 cosmetic surgeries over the course of 12 years. However, she soon realized that her happiness was only surface-level. The ex-Versace has since paid another $120K to return to her original appearance.
She went through three rhinoplasties and eight operations on her bottom, including butt implants and fat injections, to mimic Kardashian’s enormous booty. Pamplona rapidly attracted international notice thanks to her metamorphosis into Kim Kardashian’s twin, and she was even highlighted in The Post. The Brazilian-born beauty recently told her story to Caters.
People would call me a Kardashian and it started to get annoying. I had worked and studied and was a businesswoman. I had done all these things and had all these achievements in my personal life, but I was only being recognized because I looked like a Kardashian. I discovered that I was addicted to surgery and I wasn’t happy, I was putting filler in my face like I was in the supermarket. It was an addiction and I got into a cycle of surgery equals fame and money, I just lost control of everything. I went through a lot of hard times.
When Pamplona was 17 years old, she underwent surgery for the first time. Kardashian was just starting to gain popularity at the time. Pamplona rapidly developed an addiction to procedures that would make her seem like the freshly minted A-lister after her first operation. Additionally, the beauty amassed more than a million Instagram followers, but happiness did not follow.
Pamplona claimed that she had been upset for years before realizing that she had body dysmorphia and that she wanted to go back to her natural appearance. She located a physician in Istanbul who claimed to be able to assist her return to her former appearance. The stunning actress just underwent surgery, which cost her six figures, so the procedures weren’t cheap.
I saw on the computer beforehand how I would look and it was like I was having a rebirth. I had a face and neck lift, buccal fat removal, cat eye surgery, a lip lift and a nose job all at once. I went into the operation room as one person and I came out as another. I thought I was dying. I was thinking to myself, ‘What the hell have I done with my life?’ The best feeling is knowing I’m not in a fight with myself anymore. I am now who I wanted to be and I really now understand the meaning of life. I feel like I can help a lot of people with my life story, but my face is beautiful and now I look even more beautiful.
Pamplona, on the other hand, reported problems following the “de-transition” procedure, claiming that an illness caused her to “bleed from her cheeks” for three days. Thankfully, the brunette is currently making progress toward recovery, but because she still has significant swelling and bruises, the procedure’s final effects are not yet clear.
