A student is so determined to become a ‘fantasy being’ he is willing to spend over $1 million to do it.
Most recently Luis Padron, 26, spent over $15,000 on surgery to give him a ‘Dracula’ hairline to help him look more like a real life elf.
The procedure that combined implanting over two thousand hair follicles and injecting him with stem cell platelet rich plasma will give him a 'widows peak' and stimulate hair growth.
"One of the most important parts about being an elf is having long hair, that's why I decided to reshape my hairline,” says Luis from Buenos Aires, Argentina.
But because he wasn’t actually suffering any hair loss three clinics rejected his application until he finally had the procedure done by Dr. John Kahen of Beverly Hills Restoration Clinic.
"I found someone who could give me the heart-shape and vampiric hairline I wanted. The shape is like Dracula's hair and using my own blood will make the hair grow healthier,” Luis says.
The surgeon even injected Luis' own blood will help him heal faster, reinforce the new grafts and existing hair follicles making them grow quicker.
In total, Luis has spent a whopping $59,000 trying to achieve his dream after he used the fantasy world to escape from being bullied as a child.
After getting into Cosplay, he became determined to fully transform into a fantasy being and had his first surgery at 20-years-old.
Taking inspiration from Labyrinth and The Never Ending Story, he's already had cheek liposuction, a rhinoplasty, skin bleaching, full body hair removal, Botox, fillers and more.
"I want to be an elf, an angel and a fantasy being, my aim is to look inhuman, ethereal, graceful and delicate - I have my own beauty ideal and want to achieve that no matter what,” he says.
"I don't expect people to understand but I ask they respect it."
Luis says his look attracts a lot of attention and he is happy to explain his transformation plans to strangers.
"People stop me in the street and are very curious about my aesthetic. Many of them just want to take selfies with me, they tell me I look great and am like an elf," he says.
But things aren’t stopping there. Luis still has more than $1.1 million worth of surgery planned in future, including getting fang-like dentures made, pointed ears constructed, a v-shaped jawline, nose surgery and more.
"Every surgery I have, I'm one step closer to fulfilling my dream of becoming a fantasy being,” Luis says.
Luis is part of the Plastics of Hollywood Talent Agency, who are being followed by a TV show that will documenting their antics as they try to find work away from their surgery fame.
