Versace model spent $600,000 to look like Kim K. now paying $120,000 to detransition

A former Versace model who spent $600,000 to look like Kim Kardashian has decided she no longer wants to keep up with the Kardashians. 

29-year-old Jennifer Pamploma had over 40 cosmetic procedures over the course of 12 years to emulate the reality superstar, only to realize it didn’t buy her the happiness she had hoped. 

“People would call me a Kardashian and it started to get annoying,” Pamploma admits. “I had worked and studied and was a businesswoman. I had done all these things and had all these achievements in my personal life, but I was only being recognized because I looked like Kim.”

The Brazilian model had her first surgery in 2010 when she was just 17 years old. She quickly became addicted to the procedures and her list grew to include three rhinoplasties, eight operations on her bottom, butt plant and fat injections.

Her look-alike status caused her to rise to fame with 1 million followers on Instagram. But she found this didn’t make her a happier person.  

“I discovered that I was addicted to surgery, and I wasn’t happy, I was putting filler in my face like I was in the supermarket. It was an addiction and I got into a cycle of surgery equals fame and money, I just lost control of everything. I went through a lot of hard times,” Pamploma revealed. 

The model finally decided to have a reversal and found a doctor in Istanbul who could help her.  But the journey back wasn’t easy. 

It required a face and neck lift, buccal fat removal, cat eye surgery and lip lift and a nose job. She ended up shelling out over $120,000 to detransition. She also suffered complications and was “bleeding from her cheeks” for three days due to an infection.

Currently, Pamploma is still dealing with swelling and bruising so the results of the surgery are difficult to discern. She is sharing pictures of herself healing on Instagram to show the ugly truth of beauty procedures. 

She is also partnering with a doctor to open a foundation in Brazil to help people with body dysmorphia

“I feel like I can help a lot of people with my life story, but my face is beautiful, and I now look even more beautiful,” she says.
