Kyleigh Potts, a 23 year old transgender “woman” from Denver, Colorado, is so obsessed with “her” idol, Kylie Jenner, that “she” has spent in excess of $75,000 on surgeries to alter “her” body in order to acquire Jenner’s looks.
Growing up as a boy by the name of Kyle Leigh, Kyliegh empathized with Jenner, feeling like an outcast or “ugly duckling”, but has found new confidence in undergoing “her” transformation, in “her” words:
“I was bullied for being different, I was always around women and when I tried to branch out and develop friendships with men my feelings would get hurt. They would be playing rough or joking around and then would ask why I was ‘crying’, so I decided to go back to playing with my dolls and the girls.”
Kyliegh began “her” transformation with lip-fillers about three years ago, and has since undergone over 40 surgical procedures. “She” located Dolly Parton’s plastic surgeon, and others, to perform three separate surgeries over a nine hour period in November of 2016.
Kyliegh has undergone a rhinoplasty, septoplasty, to alter “her” nose and nostrils, and chin implant to further define “her” cheeks and 650CC breast implants in order to look like “her” idol, Kylie Jenner.
Kyleigh is joining the Plastics of Hollywood, an online community for people who want to modify themselves that will be adapted into a freaky TV Show. Dubbed ‘the biggest plastic family in the world’ by manager Marcela Iglesias.
Marcela, from Los Angeles, California said:
‘Who better than Kylie Jenner, the Queen of Instagram, to join us, we have Barbie dolls, Ken dolls, Aliens, Britney Spears and more.
‘We have Kim Kardashian through Jennifer Pamplona and now we also have our very own Kylie Jenner.
‘I think she will be a great addition to the show, she is similar to Kylie in personality, she even talks like her.
‘I’m personally glad that she’s fulfilling her dream, she has not finished with surgery yet and I cannot wait to see her full transformation.
‘I would never have modified myself at 23-years-old, but she has something in her mind that makes her go for it – she has incredible results that she should be very happy with.
‘The show is about fantastic human beings, not just their surgeries, but their inner worlds, what they have done and them striving to become a known personality in the Los Angeles – the entertainment capital of the world.’
The Plastics of Hollywood have spent a combined total exceeding $3 million between them, altering their bodies through plastic surgery and cosmetic procedures.
Despite this, Marcela, their manager, hasn’t had any surgery and maintains that it is not for anyone, nor should it be seen as a way to fix deeper problems.
‘I did consider doing plastic surgeries, but something told me just to wait, I know I am not perfect, but I have learned to love and accept myself, and decided against it.
‘This show is not encouraging plastic surgery, anyone who believes they could have body dysmorphia or low self-esteem should see a psychiatrist not a surgeon.
‘Plastic surgery will not cure any psychological problems – I want to encourage people who need it to seek the right help.’
Kyleigh intends to move forward with further surgeries in order to advance “her” transformation through progressive facial changes, voice feminization surgery and a buttock augmentation. “She” says “I want to get butt implants, to pin and reshape my ears, a bullhorn lip lift, a blepharoplasty to help open up my eyes, lower my hairline, and voice change.” But Kyleigh has no intention of altering “her” genitalia.
Kyliegh is comfortable with having male genitalia being a gender non-conformist, “she” says ”Unlike most transgender women, I am proud of the fact that I have male genitalia, I never wish to change them.
My doctors tailor my hormones so there is a high-enough testosterone level to allow me to still use my male genitalia during sex. I have no plans to remove them, there are too many constraints on gender where people believe they have to choose male or female.”
If Kyliegh is confused about “her” male genitalia’s existence, its because, well, male genitalia.
