"I see myself as a science project. I am basically a pioneer in the beauty industry, I am pushing the beauty industry forward."
A 27-year-old self-confessed plastic surgery addict has admitted to having underwent 200 procedures to get to her final quest of resembling a superhero. Pixee Fox from North Carolina has spent around £500,000 ($615,000) so far. She's gotten four breast augmentations, changed the color of her eyes, and she's even gotten liposuction, labiaplasty, and a brow and bottom lift done. While these may seem extreme, she's also gotten her jaws broken to have a more chiseled look, and to obtain a slim waistline, she had six of her ribs removed as well. All of this because she wanted to fulfill her ‘vision’ of looking like Wonder Woman, reports Metro.
According to Daily Mail, she also wants to launch a comic book with herself as the crime-fighting protagonist. In 2017, she appeared on ITV's This Morning and defended her obsession with plastic surgery. She claimed that she was initially against body modification procedures, but she developed a "passion" for it, and she was determined to become a pioneer in the field. "I don’t do this for vanity," she said on the show. "I am a pioneer, I am pushing the beauty industry forward," Fox says she's always been artistic and she's had a vision of herself ever since she was a child, as she always lived in a world of fantasy.
"The first thing I had done was my nose, breasts, and my eyelids. I knew from the beginning I wanted to have a lot of work done, but it was a process for me to really dare to go to that extreme." According to VT, she thinks of herself as an experiment. "I see myself as a science project. I am basically a pioneer in the beauty industry, I am pushing the beauty industry forward, I am the first person to remove six of my ribs." She adds that she wears a 16-inch corset to keep her waist that tiny. The world record is for 14.5 inches and that's her aim now. Even after removing six of her ribs, she wants to get skinnier.
She's traveled to a lot of places for procedures. For instance, she went to India to change the color of her eyes to bright blue as a surgery this dangerous isn't practiced in the UK or even the US. She even made a trip to South Korea to get her jaw surgery done. She was unable to speak or eat for a week until she recovered after having her jaw broken and reset. She says she wears the corset as an "external ribcage" to protect her organs from damage. However, she claims that she can take them off just fine, despite warnings that her spine could collapse. "My health is not an issue. I could take it off."
Fox, who was previously an electrician says, "For me, this is an extreme sport. It is not for everyone, not everyone would do it." She also said she intends to undergo some more procedures. "I am going to have a procedure that I invented with a plastic surgeon in LA. It's from the neck up. Just you wait until you see it, it will explode" she said. Despite the criticism from the doctors about her looks and plastic surgery addiction, Pixee insists she is proud of her looks reports The Sun, and added that she "never really felt human", and feels "more like a pixie, like a fantasy creature." However, she recently started a new Instagram account, and in her old one, she states that she suffered from brain damage after one procedure. The new post has a screenshot of her old account that says "former me." Let's just hope she's given up on more procedures.
