A hairdresser has spent more than £130,000 in the pursuit to look like the caricature drawn of her in Ibiza when she was just 15-years-old.
Krystina Butel, 31, from Wakefield in West Yorkshire has been chasing the look ever since, but despite spending an amount of money that could be seen as obscene, she still thinks there is more work to be done.
Her list of treatments over the years include five boob jobs costing over £23,000 to take her cup size from 32DD to 36K, a staggering £36,000 on sunbeds, and £48,000 on hair extensions.
Other work includes lip injections, botox, and heart-shaped nipple tattooing.
Speaking to the Daily Mail, Krystina said:
When I saw the caricature for the first time, that was it. I was so happy. It was as if finally I knew exactly what I wanted to be. I wanted to look like that cartoon. I felt envious of it. It was as if the artist had seen the potential in me; he showed me what I could be if I pushed myself to the limit. The caricature led me in the direction that I wanted to go down.
Krystina admits that it is an addiction, but one that she’s happy to indulge.
I know I’m going to wake up afterwards and see something new in my body. For me, it’s about getting closer to my dream. With every surgery, my appearance has got more exaggerated and I’ve gone for the caricature look fully.
To give her inspiration to get even more work carried out, she keeps the original artwork hanging in her living room.
That caricature’s my icon and it’s good to see it and reflect on what I need to look more like. It shows me that I’m not done yet with my cosmetic work. I don’t think I’ll ever stop having surgery. When I get older, I’ll have to do more things to my face to keep it looking just like this.
