A cancer survivor haunted by bullying over her appearance and looking ‘old for her age’ has had a $64,000 transformation to look like Melania Trump.
Claudia Sierra from Houston in Texas, USA, believes she’s been ‘reborn’ since surgeries to make her a doppelganger of the First Lady and can finally let go of pain caused by decades of verbal abuse.
The 42-year-old suffered with low self-esteem her entire life from bullying about her nose, hair and darker complexion, which started at the age of seven.
The mum-of-two was plagued with confidence issues for years due to the torment, peaking this year, when a date told her she looked ‘much older’ than her age – shortly after beating breast cancer.
She sought the help of Dr. Franklin Rose, of Utopia Plastic Surgery, who performed $63,856.96 worth of surgery including breast augmentation, a tummy tuck, liposuction, Brazilian butt lift, eyelid lift and more.
Her transformation was inspired by the look of Melania Trump, who she believes is a ‘strong, powerful and glamorous woman’ that has faced many similar struggles to herself.
Since completing her new-look last month, she feels ‘beautiful’ and is ready to leave the emotional problems behind her.
“This year when I was dating a man, he asked me for my driver’s license, when I gave it to him he told me I looked a lot older than 41-years-old and that was the last straw,” Claudia said.
“That was the first date I had since cancer, it broke me apart, I knew I wanted to change everything about myself and have had around $64,000 ($50,000USD) worth of surgery now.
“I had a broken nose from domestic violence fixed, my cheeks pulled back, breast augmentation, a tummy tuck, ab sculpt, Brazilian butt lift liposuction and more.
“Then hair extensions, blue eye contacts, my teeth fixed, a personal trainer, spray tan, my nails done, facials to tighten my pores and laser surgery to remove scarring it’s a full transformation.
“I wanted to have a polished structured look like Melania Trump, she is very glamorous and I like that, I didn’t want to appear as a frumpy, typical-soccer mom like before.
“I feel like the First Lady and I are very alike too, everyone puts her down yet she remains a powerful, strong woman and that’s what I want people to see in me.
Since her transformation, she believes she looks very similar to the First Lady and has people constantly staring at her because of her glamorous new look.
Of her numerous surgeries and cosmetic procedures, Claudia says her favourite results are her teeth and her new 30G breasts enlarged from a 34C.
When Dr. Franklin Rose started his practice he says people aspired to look like Jacyln Smith from Charlie’s Angels, later progressing to Jessica Rabbit, the Kardashians, and now Ivanka and Melania Trump.
“Ivanka is a very elegant and stylised, but Melania was a worldwide model and had very stunning features too.
“Melania has an eastern European look, patients don’t want to that high cheek bones look but the narrowing.
“Both Melania and Ivanka are very pretty and in the spotlight so much that they are no different from Hollywood celebrities.”
