There a few celebrity impersonators as dedicated to their crafts as Argentinian man, Leo Blanco. At only 22 years old, Leo has already paid more than $30 000 to make himself look like the legendary King of Pop.
Over seven years, the Argentinian man has undergone extensive plastic surgeries in an attempt to copy the late singer's iconic look, Briefly.co.za learned.
Leo's infatuation with Michael began when he was a young fan of the singer, dreaming of growing up to be just like him. He decided to take his love and admiration for Michael Jackson to another level and at the young age of 15 years old, the singer had his first surgery.
It escalated from there and Leo has now completed 11 surgeries and enhancements, including 4 nose jobs, his cheekbones and jaw.
He has even emulated the King of Pop’s life, constructing his own more humble Neverland Ranch in his backyard.
Leo still hopes to get just a little bit closer to looking like idol.
Leo’s fans appreciate his dedication and commitment, glad that the young man channels the energy of their beloved icon. Leo has 42.6k followers on Instagram.
Plastic and cosmetic surgery is not only expensive it is also a significant risk. Despite this, Leo is not the first person to undergo extensive surgeries to resemble the King of Pop.
A woman in the UK reportedly spent $16 000 on surgeries to make her look like Michael Jackson. Her dream of impersonating the signer was ignited after she won a talent show.
