Man spends over $402K on childhood dream to look like Michael Jackson
An Argentinian man has taken his fandom to the next level as he recently underwent 11th extensive plastic surgery to impersonate Micheal Jackson.
Leo Blanco, 22, who hails from Buenos Aires had always desired to look like the legendary King of Pop.
Blanco had first gone under the knife at the age of 15 and underwent 10 more surgeries and enhancements, including 4 nose jobs, his cheekbones and jaw.
The hard-core fan has spent more than $42,000 on 11 plastic surgery procedures to look like his idol.
“Once you start with the surgeries, there’s no limit. It’s impossible to have just one or two surgeries done, you want more and more,” he told The Mirror.
Leo still hopes to get just a little bit closer to looking like idol.

Pues no.. para ellos soy un vago por que quiero ser “artistas”.
“It’s a constant fight between what my parents want, what I want and what the surgeons are willing to do.”
However, his mom doesn’t share the same views.
“I approve of him being a fan of Michael Jackson and impersonating him, but the plastic surgeries? I am worried because he talks about surgeries so calmly as if he was going to a hairdresser, but I fear that he is going to die in one of the surgeries,” she said.
