Man Has Surgeries To Look Like Superman
This is the problem with society today: no one is happy being themselves.
According to Mail Online
When Clark Kent wanted to transform into Superman, it was a fairly simple task.
He would step into a phone box, spin around and the transformation would be complete.
But Herbert Chavez’s change has taken a bit longer – through 16 years of plastic surgery.
The 35-year-old, from Calamba City, Philippines, has had nose jobs, skin whitening, lip liposuction, jaw realignment, pec implants and even abdominal implants to become a real-life Clarke Kent
after falling in love with the TV programme aged five.
He has splashed around 300,000 Pesos (£4,400) on his obsession – a fortune compared to the average 90p hourly wage in the Philippines.
Mr Chavez regularly takes to the streets around his home dressed in full Superman regalia, with his hair gelled in distinctive curly fashion.
He aims to teach kids good morals while also brightening their days.
He said: ‘I feel like a Superhero whenever I pull on the costume, but my mission is not to save the world but to help in my own small way and bring a smile to the faces of local children.
‘I don’t have any regrets at all. People come up to me in the street all the time and want their picture taken with me.
‘They are all really excited to see a real-life Superman in the Philippines.’
But his distinctive look has not come easily, with Herbert going under the knife repeatedly to copy every last feature of the super hero he worships – right down to his chiselled chin.
And Mr Chavez admits it is tasking trying to keep up with such a ‘perfect’ person.
He added: ‘If you talk about super heroes, the expectation of people is that they are flawless, they do not get hurt, they do not die.
Herbert now plans to keep improving his look with more operations to make him taller and surgery to beef up his abdomen and bum.
But he acknowledges that there may be a day when he has to halt the extensive surgeries.
Mr Chavez said: ‘I totally don’t have any regrets. What is there for me to regret? Everything that has happened in my life has been positive and because of Superman.
‘When my body says it can not endure it anymore or when my doctor says that my body can not handle it because of age, then I will stop.’
At least we know who he is trying to look like. Lil Kim has had God knows how many sugeries and we still haven’t figured out who she’s trying to be.
