Cindy Jackson, the 55-year-old Ohio woman, holds the Guiness World Record for the most number of plastic surgeries. So far has had 52 procedures worth more than $100,000. Facelifts, liposuction, eye corrections, botox, you name it.
“For me, it was just to look better. I didn’t set out to break, to set a world record, it was never my ambition, it’s just that I had so much done,” she said.
Jackson grew up in small town Ohio, with a short-tempered father and low self-esteem. In a portrait done by ABC News, she remembered how the other kids used to tease her when she was young.
“One guy said when I was 14, ‘You know Cindy, when you smile, from the side your nose and chin almost meet’. It was like being in the wrong body and wrong face and I felt that very much and wanted to change it”, Jackson explained how it all began.
Now she believes that people in middle years – their 40s, 50s and 60s – are being “redefined” by this generation and that they don’t have to look like our parents.
“I feel like a young spirit and I don’t want to look in the mirror and see and old face.”
