TheTalko: Does the name Pixee Fox mean anything to you? Well, how about this – the woman who wants to transform herself into a cartoon? That might ring a bell. This glamour model and body modification artist literally brands herself as The Living Doll – and one look at her body will tell you exactly why she’s given herself that title.
Her extensive list includes: six ribs removed, four breast augmentations, two liposuctions, two blepharoplasties, liabiaplasty, eye-colour changing implants, brow lift and butt lift.
Just like many celebrities who refuse to reveal exactly what procedures they’ve had done, many individuals who end up famous because of how they look are hesitant to reveal exactly what has gone into making them look the way they look. Pixee Fox, on the other hand, is refreshingly honest – she chronicles every single step of her journey, from her post-surgery recovery diet to how her various procedures went, what she’s contemplating doing next, what exactly the procedures she’s anticipating entail, and more.

Many individuals who undertake some type of strange, personal quest get coverage in one or two newspapers, in the soft news or offbeat section. However, Fox isn’t really a passing trend – people are constantly giving the blonde media coverage, and it seems the entire world is fascinated by her. According to Fox’s website, she has been featured in over 180 newspapers, websites, and television channels in 42 countries. These include a ton of well known sites and publications, including US Magazine, People Magazine, The Daily Mail, Perez Hilton, The Mirror, The Huffington Post, Complex, Cosmopolitan and more.

Though born in Sweden, Pixee Fox lives in the USA nowadays. However, it might not be in the state you would think. Many likely assume that an over the top, curvy blonde like Fox would live in California, Florida, or even Las Vegas, Nevada, but Fox actually resides in the relatively low-key, quiet South Carolina. I mean, there’s no doubt that it’s a beautiful state with a lot of attractions, but it’s just not exactly where we imagine Fox would gravitate towards.
Daily Mail: Model spends $120,000 on 15 surgeries and has SIX RIBS removed in her quest for a 14-inch waist – because she wants to look like a cartoon character

With her impossibly tiny waist, inflated cleavage and doll-like face, she looks as if she’s just stepped out of a cartoon.
But Pixee Fox, 28, is very much a living, breathing woman and she spent more than $119,200 (£79,160) on surgical procedures to achieve her look.
Most shockingly, the former electrician from Sweden has had six of her lower ribs removed in a bid to shrink her waist to a record-breaking 14 inches.

“Rib removal has been a dream of mine for years,” Fox told FOX411. “I want to have the exaggerated curves you see in pin-up cartoons like Jessica Rabbit.” Source: journalpost.com
The Indiana-based surgeon who performed the procedure, Dr. Barry Eppley, spoke to FOX411 about the risks of the cosmetic procedure. Nowadays, Fox tries to make her life all about glamour, from her lace-covered corsets to her always perfectly styled hair and perfectly applied make-up. However, once upon a time, she had an occupation that was decidedly less glamorous – an electrician. That’s right – before she began her quest to become a living cartoon character, Fox apparently worked as an electrician. While there are undoubtedly many female electricians in the world, we can’t help but wonder what her clients would think if she ever decided to go back into the trade and showed up with her tools and teeny, tiny waist.Source: TheTalko

A North Carolina woman hellbent on looking like animated 1990s movie vixen Jessica Rabbit has sunk more than $100,000 into costly surgical procedures to fulfill her bizarre dream — including the removal of six ribs. “I am transforming myself from human to living cartoon,” wrote aspiring fashion model Pixee Fox on her blog Plasticdoll Transformation, which chronicles her dangerous transformation from woman to sex rabbit.

Over the years, in her quest to achieve her cartoon look, Pixee Fox has had four rhinoplasty procedures, four breast augmentations, eyelid sculpting, liposuction, labioplasty, lip fillers, a Brazilian butt lift… the list is truly endless. So, how much does all that cost? Well, it’s definitely not pocket change. Overall, Fox has spent about £80,000 on her various cosmetic surgery procedures – that’s over $120,000 USD. To put that into perspective, you could buy a new sports car with that kind of cash, or even three or four regular cars. As far as investments go, it’s not really the best way to blow all your money, but hey – whatever makes you happy. Source: TheTalko

Daily Mail: ‘People often come up to me and say, “Don’t take this the wrong way, but you look like a cartoon”. she says. ‘But for me that’s a compliment, that’s what I want to achieve.’
Pixee cites her inspirations as Jessica Rabbit, Aurora from Sleeping Beauty and Holli Would from Cool World.
‘Those cartoon characters represent the idealisation of the female body,’ she explains.
‘I want to have the tiny waist, the butt, big boobs, big eyes and a really pretty face.
‘Having my ribs removed was just another step in achieving that ideal.’
‘Getting my ribs removed has always been a dream of mine,’ Pixee says. ‘But it was really hard, almost impossible, to find a surgeon to do it.
‘The only reason I have been able to do it now is that doctors finally started taking me seriously.
‘They they can see I’m not a crazy person and that I know what I’m doing.’
Pixee’s recovery from the $9,000 (£6,000) operation was supposed to take six weeks.
However, she was already back into her normal routine of wearing a corset 24/7 just two days later.
‘I can see the results and feel the difference,’ she says. ‘Before the corset would push against the ribs, which makes it harder and more painful to wear.
‘Now I can wear it even tighter without any pain. I think I am pretty close to the world record for smallest waist.
The current record holder is American Cathie Jung, 78, who has a 15-inch waist.
‘If I just get time to heal and workout and continue my lifestyle I’m going to go down to 14 inches,’ says Pixee.
The procedures have taken 5ft 4in Pixee’s measurements from 30-24-34 to an eye-watering 38-16-39.
In a bid to shrink her waist even further, she works out daily for up to four or five hours.
Eating substantial food such as bread or meat is a struggle, as it’s uncomfortable because of her restrictive corset.
So she mainly eats vegetables, fruit and nuts, which she blends into a smoothie, as well as taking extra vitamins.

A plastic surgery addict who wants to look like a real-life superhero has undergone a painful jaw operation to give her a pointed chin just like a comic book character…Pixee Fox travelled to Seoul, South Korea, for the dangerous procedure, which saw doctors break, shave and reset her jaw bone in order to transform the shape of her face… She is creating a series of books around her own superhero character that she hopes will one day take on the multi-million dollar Wonder Woman franchise… Source: ID Hospital
Pixee, who has undergone extensive plastic surgery over the last six years, will now have to spend the next 12 months recovering from the most recent operation.
She said: ‘I had my cheek bones reduced, the chin re-centred, the shaving down of my jaw then moved back into place so it was a complete face and bone reconstruction.
‘It was a risky surgery so surgeons had to be especially careful with that as there were a lot of muscles and nerves in the face.

Pixee Fox wanted to have a symmetrical v-shaped jawline so she looks like the comic book super hero. She risked her life to have the operation last September,2017, which she says is her most dangerous to date, in Seoul, Korea. Pixee risked paralysing her face and had to spend a week unable to eat or talk. It will take her a full year to recover. And it’s all so she can feature in her own children’s comic book series, which she is planning to launch, with her as the star. She said: ‘I wanted to do the V-line and bone surgery to achieve a more symmetric and have a jawline that looked more like a super-hero. The jaw surgery will make my face look smaller which will make my eyes appear bigger. ‘Now I am turning my life into a story where I am the superhero, it is fantasy and fiction but based on me as a person.’ Source: mirror.co.uk
She continued: ‘All the other surgeries have been easy in comparison since they are performed more frequently, this one required a lot of research.’
Pixee went under the knife for the first time in 2011 and since then has undergone a surgeries including four breast augmentations, two liposuction surgeries, brow and butt lifts and an implant to change her eye colour.
Pixee said: ‘After doing my first surgery I got hooked. For me it was like going on an adventure and creating my body with my own imagination.
‘It was so exciting and I just continued because I knew this was my way and what I was supposed to do. The surgeries have helped me over the years to love myself for the person I really am.’
The most recent surgery was conducted by specialist Dr Park of ID Hospital in Korea.
Daily Mail: Now that so many of her ribs have been removed, Pixee’s lower internal organs, including the liver, have lost some of their natural protection.
However, she isn’t worried about the risk to her health if she’s in an accident.
‘Before if I was in a car crash I would have broken my ribs,’ she said. ‘If that happened now I’m probably going to break my spleen instead.
‘But I’m not concerned as I have my corset as my artificial ribcage now and I wear it 24/7.’
In her younger years, Pixee lived a much less glamorous existence living with her parents and older sister in a small rural town outside of Stockholm.
‘Sweden is a very egalitarian country which does not encourage you to stand out.
‘I didn’t feel like I fitted in. I was a tomboy. I worried about my nose, I didn’t date and I felt vulnerable.’
After leaving school she trained as an electrician and saved up for a nose job.
Her boyfriend at the time then encouraged her to have two boob jobs that took her from an A to a C-cup.
But it was after splitting from him in 2013 that her obsession to become a real-life cartoon really picked up.
In total, she’s had four rhinoplasties to sculpt the perfect nose and four breast augmentations to inflate her cleavage to a J-cup.
Her upper eyelids have been operated on and she’s had two round of liposuction.
She’s had injectable fillers to plump up her cheeks and lips, and a Brazilian butt lift to give her a more rounded derrière.
The aspiring model has even had a labiaplasty – a so-called ‘designer vagina’ operation that reduces excess tissue from the labia.

Including the rib surgery she estimates she has spent $119,200 (£80,000) on surgery alone.
But taking into account lost wages, medicines and travelling she estimates the true costs is thousands of dollars more.
She paid for 11 of the procedures out of her own earnings and savings.
The rest, including her fourth breast augmentation, were paid for by fans who have been following her transformation on social media and praising her for being an ‘inspiration’.
Daily Mail: ‘Your Instagram is very inspiring,’ a fan called dollproject_net wrote. ‘Not only because your style is so unique and sexy, but also because of the way you share your passion with us. Thank you.’
Margaritacakes echoed the sentiment, saying: ‘Your body is what motivates me to go to the gym and save up for the surgeries I plan to do!
‘Thanks for being so rad and sharing your transformation! It’s so inspirational!’
However, kelly_het_wilhelm was less than impressed, writing: ‘Gross rib removal. I just puked in my mouth.’
But another fan reminded Pixee to ignore any negative feedback.
‘It’s not anyone’s business what you do to your body,’ he wrote.
‘I will never understand these people thinking they have the right to tell you how you should do things.’
On seeing pictures she posted while recovering in hospital after surgery, a fan wrote: ‘You are so brave and so beautiful.
‘I can’t believe you are so angelic having just had major surgery. Good luck healing.’
Annemarchner added: ‘I hope you feel better now.
‘I’ve been following your transformation. I hope you are happy. You look amazing.’
However Pixee insists that she’s not aiming to inspire people to get plastic surgery.
‘What I want to do is get a message out there that whatever you decide to do, you should dare to be yourself and surround yourself with people that support you for who you are inside.
‘There are so many people out there – for example transsexual people – who feel like one person inside and it doesn’t reflect their outside.
‘For me who I was on the outside was not who I was on the inside.
‘I get a lot of positive feedback from girls and many guys who want to have a change in their life, like a transformation, or just get more fit, more healthy.
‘Everyone needs inspiration, and for me to be that inspiration really makes me feel really good.’

Pixee believes that people look up to her because of her complete devotion to what she calls ‘the bimbo life’.
‘There are many beautiful women who have transformed themselves in various ways, and I admire all of them,’ she says.
‘But most have only changed a few things or exaggerated one thing,’
‘My particular transformation is about achieving a total look, which requires head-to-toe transformation and total lifestyle commitment.’
Her transformation in 2016 was continued to a whole new wave of surgery.
This will include butt and hip implants, eyelash implants, and cheek fat removal which will help make her cheeks ‘pop’ more.
She added: ‘There are six billion people on the planet. Why should everyone look the same? It’s boring.
‘I’m not unhappy with the way I look now. I just enjoy tweaking it.
‘I see myself as a body-modification artist. This is my job. This is what I do and I’m going to keep on sculpting.
‘It’s your life and as long as you’re happy and don’t hurt anyone, it shouldn’t be a problem.’

“The jaw surgery will make my face look smaller which will make my eyes appear bigger.
“I’m creating my own cartoon figure, I’m going to be my own superhero character that is being turned into a book series and hopefully films.
“Now I am turning my life into a story where I am the superhero, it is fantasy and fiction but based on me as a person.
“I would not be a superhero like all the others, I will be one showing real world struggles and you will see me in many different characters in the future.”
The extreme surgery was conducted by specialist Dr Park of ID Hospital in Korea and will see Pixee battle a lengthy recovery.
She said: “This was by far the most extreme surgery I have done and risky in many ways, the first two days I was surviving hour to hour.

“I had a plastic tube in my nose so my airways would not close and plastic braces that keep my bite fixed and mouth open.
“With all the plastic in my mouth and down my throat I could not swallow, so every 20-minutes for the first 24-hours my airways had to be vacuumed for blood, fluids and saliva.

“I had my cheek bones reduced, the chin re-centred, the shaving down of my jaw then moved back into place so it was a complete face and bone reconstruction.
“It was a risky surgery so surgeons had to be especially careful with that as there were a lot of muscles and nerves in the face.
“After 24-hours the breathing tube in my nose was taken out and the thing that kept my mouth open was removed, after two days the bleeding stopped and then things got a lot better.
“After five days I could start to drink some juices and then liquid, I won’t be able to eat solid food for more than a month.
“All the other surgeries have been easy in comparison since they are performed more frequently, this one required a lot of research.”
Pixee went under the knife for the first time in 2011 and since then has undergone countless surgeries and cosmetic procedures to transform her body.
TheTalko: Fox isn’t just getting surgery after surgery in an attempt to look over the top – she has a specific sort of vision in mind. Some of her inspirations include Holli Would from Cool World, Princess Aurora from Sleeping Beauty and Jessica Rabbit from Who Framed Roger Rabbit? What’s the common theme? Well, glamour, and exaggerated curves. While Princess Aurora is from a different time period, and Jessica Rabbit has that crazy red hair, they all have a certain air of glamour and mystery, and many of her inspirations are simply over the top bombshells.
While Pixee’s curves have been enhanced with several breast augmentations and a Brazilian butt lift, one of the most prominent aspects of her body is her teeny, tiny waist. While a corset can definitely shape your curves a bit (hence the waist training craze), there’s no way to get a waist as small as Pixee Fox’s naturally. So, how did she manage to attain that teeny, tiny waist? By convincing a doctor to remove six of her ribs, so that she could cinch in that waist to impossible proportions. That’s right – she had the bottom six ribs removed from her body – and with 24 ribs in the human body, that represents 25%, gone!

ABOUT RIB REMOVAL SURGERY
Doctors may approve the procedure in several situations, such as the risk of a fractured rib puncturing a vital organ.
Excess pressure in the thoracic cavity can be relieved by rib removal.
Sometimes major surgery to the thoracic cavity requires rib removal to allow access to the organ that’s being operated on.
Ribs may also be removed to stop cancer spreading in the bone.
The surgery is not recommended for cosmetic reasons, as complications can include collapsed lung, pneumonia, nerve damage, fracture to one of the other ribs, tearing of the diaphragm muscle and heavy scarring.
Also, the surgery is irreversible and comes with the risk of infection associated with any major operation.
