British woman sets plastic surgery world record
Seems as if
Heidi Montag has found her mistress: 55-year-old Cindy Jackson is the Guinness World Record holder for plastic surgery performed on one person as of this month, having had 52 cosmetic procedures worth a staggering $100,000.
"I didn't set out to break, to set a world record, it was never my ambition, it's just that I had so much done," she said in a portrait by ABC News, released this week.
"So much" translates into 14 full-scale operations as well as pulls, peels and jabs, several Botox injections, five face-lifts and liposuction.
Still, Jackson insists that she looks natural: "I wouldn't ever want anyone to stop and stare at me and say 'that woman's had a lot of surgery.' I would never want to look like I'd had anything done," she said.
As with most plastic surgery 'addicts,' Jackson's drastic transformation seems to be due to lacking self-esteem. "One guy, when I was 14, said, you know, Cindy, when you smile, from the side, your nose and chin almost meet," she told ABC, "It was like being in the wrong body and face...," adding that she was much happier with her looks today: "I feel like a young spirit and I don't want to look in the mirror and see and old face. I feel this is me, this is the way I should look."
