SINCE she was a teenager, Cherri Lee idolized the Kardashian family and admired their signature curvy figures.
After spending a staggering £50,000 on surgery, the 28-year-old says she’s finally achieved her dream of looking just like her idol Kim – even if she gets the occasional troll.
South Korea’s Cherri has spent the last eight years performing procedures including three Brazilian butt lifts – which can often be dangerous – as well as facial surgeries.
She had her first surgery aged 20 after a tough breakup but says after investing in 34GGG boobs her ex crawled back.
“After the breakup, my confidence was low,” she explains. “I’ve always wanted the glamorous Kardashian look with the plump butt and hourglass figure.
“Since I saw my transformation, my ex has come back and said he wants me now – but I’m too good for him and I keep getting guys coming at me!”
Cherri, whose South Korean name is Hanbyeol, had a total of 15 surgeries to get the “Kardashian face” and an hourglass figure.
Her parents have helped her spend more than £50,000 on her glamorous look – and she says her looks have changed so much that strangers don’t even notice she’s from South Korea.
“Actually, I look like a completely different person now,” she says. “Some of my Korean family members don’t even recognize me anymore.
“Kim has always been an inspiration to me and I think she is the most beautiful woman in the world.
“I don’t regret a single procedure and I would do it all the same way again – I only regret why I didn’t do it sooner!”
Between 2019 and 2021, Cherri, a part-time English teacher, had three Brazilian butt lifts to get Kim’s world famous butt.
“I had it done three years in a row. Each time it just wasn’t big enough for my liking,” she says.
Between those years she also had a nose job, cheekbone surgery, double chin reduction and two rounds of buccal fat removal that thins the cheeks.
But she has admitted she feels she has now achieved her goal and has not been put under the knife since her last buccal fat removal, which she had in Greece last year.
She says: “I’m not planning any more surgeries now, I know when to stop.
“I was addicted before. I got a high when I woke up in excruciating pain and saw myself afterwards and it was my reward.
“I am so thankful that not a single procedure I had done went wrong because I know that can happen.”
She now has 1050cc implants in each breast – giving her a cup size of 34 GGG – and says strangers mistake her for Kim from behind.
“I don’t think my facial features look like Kim K, but the overall vibe is,” she says.
“I get people commenting from behind and thinking I can’t hear them when they ask each other if I’m Kim.
“I get people saying I should be their body double.”
Cherri says she gets a lot of mixed reactions from people, even when she’s in public.
“I love it when people stop and compliment me,” she says. “But I hate it when guys ask for my number.
Dangers of Cosmetic Surgery
COMESTIC surgical procedures are becoming increasingly popular among young people as social media pressure mounts.
While the results may seem glamorous, the effects can be deadly.
The Brazilian Butt Lift, or BBL, has been cited as having the highest mortality rate of any aesthetic procedure, with up to one in 3,000 patients dying as a result of the surgery, according to Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors.
In this procedure, fat deposits are removed from one part of the body and this fat is injected into the buttocks to make the bottom look “fuller” and “firmer”.
If done incorrectly, fat or fillers can get into one of the large blood vessels and cause a fatal pulmonary embolism.
According to a recent survey by the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the number of butt lifts performed worldwide has increased by 77.6% since 2015.
According to local reports, 15 women have died after BBLs in the last few years in South Florida alone.
Typically, this surgery can cost anywhere from $3,000 to $30,000.
“It happened a couple of times when I was in London – it offends me if they think they have a chance!
“I also got some negative reactions.
“A middle-aged lady once looked at me and asked how much I charged per hour, suggesting I was a sex worker. I went out in public in a sundress – that was just rude.
“But I don’t let that affect me. If you don’t have anything nice to say, keep jogging.”
She described her decision to have surgery — which many might question — as the best decision she’s ever made.
“I’ve always been an attention seeker,” she says. “It makes me feel sexy. I like it when people compliment me.
“My confidence has gone through the roof, I’m so much happier now than when I was young.”
