Justin "Human Ken Doll" Jedlica, has spent $1,000,000 on his body modifications and has just reached his 1,000th procedure. Having hit this huge milestone, Justin has reached out to other body modification enthusiasts. 

Justin told Truly, a YouTube channel who is following Justin for a documentary series called Hooked on the Look, said: “Being a plastic surgery expert connotes the fact that I've been there, I've done that. I think I'd like to see what the competition looks like on the other side. 

“It’s really rewarding for me. I've helped hundreds of people with my consulting, but additionally to that I offer services where I actually design custom implants for people." Today, Justin will meet the $1,000,000 Barbie herself, Nikki Exotika, to share the latest gossip and insider beauty secrets. Nikki will also be revealing her latest cosmetic surgery idea to Justin to get his expert advice. 

Watch Nikki and Justin's story here:

Justin told Truly: “Nikki says that she has something to reveal to me today. So, I am excited to hear her out. Nikki can definitely be a handful at times, you know, a lot of our interactions started in the bar life in the New York City nightlife, and she can be pretty wild. Nikki is someone who is gorgeous inside and out. I love my friendship with her, and every time I'm with her she always is like this Goddess Barbie doll!” 

Nikki told Truly: “Justin is definitely a pioneer in plastic surgery. I’m very lucky to know him. Everytime we hang out, we have the most amazing time. I value Justin’s advice because he’s been through it all and he would know best and always have the best advice." 

Nikki plans to have three ribs removed, in order to get a slimmer waist. However, there is a risk in this procedure that it may leave vital organs without the protection the human body created for them. The ribcage is just that: a cage, which protects the internal organs from harm, and Justin is concerned interfering with this may not be safe in the long term. 

The risks of repetitive plastic surgery

Justin has undergone over 1,000 cosmetic procedures. Everything from his lips and nose to shoulders, biceps, quadriceps and calves have been augmented by surgeries. 

According to researchers from the University of California, such a barrage of procedures could have detrimental effects on the body. The study found venous thromboembolism rates, or the risk of experiencing blood clots, increased when study participants had undergone combinations of different plastic surgery procedures.

Although it's not our place to determine whether a cosmetic surgical procedure is right for you, it's always going to be healthier to train with the best adjustable dumbbells or best resistance bands than fit artificial bicep or quad muscles. 

The best exercises for weight loss and a healthy diet can go a long way in terms of body aesthetics, if that's the reason you choose to train. But the onus is on you to become well-informed and proceed safely, regardless of what path you choose to take.
