Japanese Model Underwent 30 Cosmetic Procedures to Look Like a French Doll

A Japanese model named Vanilla Chamu has recently become an internet sensation after it was reported she spent 10 million yen ($100,000) on 30 plastic surgery procedures in order to fulfill her dream of becoming a perfect living French doll.

She claims it’s her ultimate goal and the reason she has so far underwent tens of cosmetic procedures, but with her inflated lips and enlarged breasts, Vanilla Chamu doesn’t really look anything like a porcelain French doll. She just went from an average looking Japanese girl to a Western-looking woman with obvious plastic surgery, but the now-famous model says she doesn’t plan to stop altering her image anytime soon, and intends to soon undergo an extreme height-lengthening surgery. Her story has caused quite a bit of controversy in Japan, and she has been invited to numerous television shows to explain her reasons for the radical physical change. Vanilla, who’s current age is a well-guarded secret, claims she had her first plastic surgery at age 19, and numerous other since then, including  double eyelid surgery, rhinoplasty, liposuction, eyelash implants, dimple creation, and breast implants. So far, she has spent over 10 million yen on these procedures, but her sizable investment seems to have paid off, as Vanilla Chamu is now a successful model and pop singer in her native land of Japan.

Looking at a photo of Vanilla Chamu when she was 17, it’s virtually impossible to recognize her in the plastic surgery-enhanced bombshell she is today. According to most sources she changed her appearance so she could look like one of those antique French dolls, but one forum poster claims her boyfriend, a low-life who kept telling her she was ugly and cheated on her all the time, pushed her to plastic surgery when she was very young, and she hasn’t stopped since. Another article states Vanilla grew up with low self-esteem and parents who weren’t really there for her, so she based her dream look on an old doll she had as a little girl. Apparently she paid for all the cosmetic surgery by working as a hostess. I have posted an interview with Vanilla Chamu on Japanese television, but I don’t understand a word they’re saying. If any of you can shed some light on the real reasons for this drastic transformation, feel free to share by posting a comment.

Vanilla Chamu is certainly not the only person who dreams of becoming a real-life doll. Anastasya Shpagina has been using makeup to transform herself into an anime character, KotaKoti has been doing the same to achieve a coveted Japanese doll look, and Valeria Lukyanova‘s doll-like features have earned her the nickname “real-life Barbie”. Oh and let’s not forget the living, breathing Ken doll, Mr Justin Jetlica.

    She based her look on a old doll she had…good thing it wasn’t Elmo.

    What’s interesting is… that $100,000 will end up being a tiny investment for her and she will NOW have the potential to earn/receive Tens of Millions of dollars… especially from doing endorsements for companies and doing modeling. She’s about to become very, very rich now.

    She was prettier before all the surgery…

    I wonder if it will improve her life aside from the modeling income. If she’ll be happy and find meaning in her life, then it was worth it. The artificial appearance is not a look I would be attracted to, but somewhere after one or two surgeries, she probably looked really pretty and still had a natural appearance. I think I would have stopped there. But it’s her life, and I hope this brings her true happiness beyond the yen.

    私はそれがモデリング収入から彼女の人生を脇に改善するかどうかのだろうか。彼女が幸せになると、彼女の人生に意味を見つけることができますならば、それは価値があった。人工的な外観は、私はに惹かれるであろう外観ではなく、どこか1つまたは2つの手術の後、彼女はおそらく、実際にはかなり見て、まだ自然な外観を持っていた。私はそこに停止していると思います。しかし、それは彼女の人生だし、私は、これは円を超えた彼女の本当の幸福をもたらすと思います。
