Superman Fan Undergoes Plastic Surgery to Look Like His Favorite Superhero

Herbert Chavez, a Superman fan from the Philippines, is so obsessed with the Man of Steel that he underwent several plastic surgery procedures just to look like his favorite superhero.

According to a video report by Bandila News’ Marie Lozano, 35-year-old Herbert Chavez has dramatically altered his appearance to look more like Superman. Unfortunately, the report is in Filipino and I’m not very good at that, but the guys at Real Self Blog translated some of it and managed to uncover that Chavez first went under the knife in 1995 and he’s had several other procedures since then. He had a chin augmentation to get Superman’s cleft, rhinoplasty to get Christopher Reeves nose, silicone injections for more plump lips and even thigh implants for a more muscular look. Examining the before and after photos, they speculate he may also have had eye surgery, cheek augmentation and jaw augmentation.

Chavez, who apparently works as a pageant trainer (whatever that means), also has a sizable collection of Superman memorabilia, including life-size statues, action figures, clothing, comics and all sorts of other stuff. He’s a fan of cosplay, and judging by the photos on his Facebook profile, he loves posing both as Superman and Clark Kent. In Bandila’s report, a psychiatrist suggests Herbert Chavez may be suffering from Body Dysmorphic Disorder, a mental illness in which a person can’t stop thinking about a flaw with their appearance.
