Addicted To Perfection? Man Has Had 117 Plastic Surgeries

NEW YORK (WLNY) -- Everyone wants to look their best, and in a society that values beauty, getting cosmetic procedures is nothing new.

But with 117 operations -- and still counting -- not many have gone to the extremes that Justin Jedlica has gone to.

"If you want to stand out, you have to stand on your own," he said.

He's had everything from a nose job (actually, five nose jobs), 13 sessions of buttock augmentation, and the world's only 3 piece deltoid implantation. But what started as a fascination with plastic surgery has now blossomed into a career for Jedlica. He's putting out his own implant line, and now does consultation and referral services, pairing potential patients with surgeons.

"Its been a long journey for me, I started my procedures when I was 17 years old," he said. "It's become an art form to me, I love creating with it."

He's now taken to Craigslist to hire a writer to tell his story. For information on the job, click here.
