Toby Sheldon, a 33-year-old songwriter from Los Angeles has spent the past five years and $100,000 in an effort to look like teenaged pop idol Justin Bieber. Sheldon used a picture of Bieber as the inspiration for numerous surgeries, including face fillers, hair transplants, a chin reduction and eyelid surgery.
creepy obsession with his appearance began when he started having treatments to prevent hair thinning at the age of 23, but really took off when Bieber hit super stardom in 2008.
“Once Justin shot to fame his face was everywhere and all I kept thinking when I saw his picture was, I want to look like him,” Sheldon says.
Even after a total of $100,000 worth of plastic surgery to look like his idol, Toby says he still hasn’t achieved his dream look. “I know there is more work to be done in order to make a full transformation into Justin Bieber’s doppelganger like a nose job and jaw reduction, which my surgeon has suggested.”
Although Sheldon’s similarity to his teen idol isn’t immediately obvious even after spending $100,000 worth of surgical procedures, he says he does get mistaken for Bieber. “Between our similar hairstyles, baby-faced smile and overall youthful appearance I finally look like Justin Bieber and I couldn’t be happier about it,” he says.
Would you pay any amount to look like your favorite celeb?
