Nurse, 31, Spent $200,000 On Cosmetic Procedures To Look Like A Barbie

Today’s media is an ever-influential aspect. We are constantly bombarded by images of the perfect smile with dazzling white teeth, the perfect job with an impressive house or car. The most pressing thing today are the ideals that so many women compare themselves to, thanks to the fashion industry. It starts at a young age for a lot of women. Some, when they were given their first-ever Barbie doll as a young child. Our story today is of Tara Jayne, a nurse, who so badly wanted to look like the traditional Barbie that she spent $200,000 to morph herself into that image – with the help of some plastic surgery.

Barbie’s Brief History

Before we get into that, here is a little history on the iconic Barbie doll that so many aspire to be. Barbie has been a big influence on modern society. She made her debut in America in 1959. Since then she has been the prize of every little girl’s dream body. Now being portrayed as the picture-perfect image of a female. Invented by Ruth and Elliot Handler from the inspiration of their daughter who would scrunch bits of paper into the shape of a doll that looked like an adult.

Ironically, She was meant to inspire thoughts of their future (which was a pressing matter for young girls during that era) as opposed to a fashion and body image icon. Elliot and his wife, Ruth, were probably not expecting to be making history with their design, but they sure did!

Cosmetic Nurse Becomes Barbie Personified

So many women today are turning to cosmetic procedures to reshape some parts of their bodies. Whether it be breast augmentations, facelifts, Botox, fillers, and a lot more. This can be quite a pricey affair, but if you are a cosmetic nurse, you are constantly exposed to the procedures. So, it is understandable for them to want something done for themselves. Our story today is of one cosmetic nurse, named Tara Jayne, who loves getting a little cosmetic procedure done now and then.

Tara loves it so much that she has spent $200,000 on various plastic surgeries so that she would look like a Barbie doll. She describes plastic surgery as her way of “expressing beauty and empowerment.” So far, she has had up to five breast augmentations, six nose jobs, and a countless amount of Botox and fillers. This is some serious dedication, not to mention direly expensive. Botox and filler injections are great for anti-aging effects, and plumping or even reshaping parts of your face like your lips or cheekbones.

An Expensive Hobby

Most people learn a new skill like photography or making jewelry when they want a new hobby. Jayne’s hobby is getting some form of cosmetic procedure done. She gets her lips done about 30 times each year, and that must cost a pretty penny or two. “It’s quite easy to spend $2000 to $5000 at a time; it’s a pretty expensive hobby.” Said Jayne. Luckily for Jay she has many sponsors. All who like to support this hobby of hers, and her family is also there to lend a hand. 

As it goes with hobbies, once you get through to the next level you want to learn more and more so that you can become an expert at whatever it is. For Jayne, her next procedure is to get customized breast implants. These are made so that she can have breasts with 1500cc instead of 1000cc. She plans to do this within six months. This is a major task, and we wish her all the best for her future body modifications.
