If you’re like many of us, you’ve probably commissioned your share of those funny, cartoonish caricature drawings that tend to highlight your, ahem, biggest features. But what happens when you want to much more closely resemble that large-chested, full-lipped image staring up at you from a piece of oversized paper? Well, you could shell out some serous dough on multiple plastic surgeries.
Would You Spend Thousands to Look Like a Drawing?
One British woman did just that. After falling in love with a caricature of herself (which, mind you, took about 10 minutes to complete), Krystina Butel made it her mission to bring that drawing to life. With the help of 15 cosmetic procedures and over $100,000, Ms. Butel has taken some serious measures to match the street artist’s playful vision of her features.
Get Real about Your Results
Plastic surgery has been shown to boost self-confidence and even your quality of life, but there is a catch. Research suggests that women and men who maintain realistic expectations about their plastic surgery results tend to enjoy much higher levels of satisfaction and improved self-esteem than those who seek cosmetic treatment for the wrong reasons.

If you’re unhappy with the size, shape or asymmetry of your breasts, a breast augmentation could absolutely be able to help you. But if you’re considering multiple surgeries in order to look like a cartoon version of yourself, you may want to rethink your decision, as your results aren’t likely to ever fully live up to your expectations.
