(Scroll down for video) A young woman had many surgeries to remove ribs from her waist.
Pixee Fox, 25, underwent an extreme transformation because she wanted to look like a cartoon character.
Fox, 25, spent about $120,000 in surgical procedures to achieve her unique look. Fox worked as an electrician when she lived in Sweden, before moving to North Carolina.
She had 6 of her ribs removed in an attempt to reduce the size of her waist to a record 14 inches. Her waist is now 16 inches.
The current record holder is 78-year-old Cathie Jung, who has a tiny 15-inch waist.
Fox loves it when people tell her that she looks like a cartoon character. To her, it means that she accomplished her goal. She said that people often come to her and say: “Don’t take this the wrong way, but you look like a cartoon character.”
Fox takes it as a compliment because that is the look she wanted to achieve. The woman has 70,000 followers on Instagram, and she insists that she is a good role model for them.
Fox also made her breasts and hips bigger. Her breast size before surgery was 30 while her waist was 24 and hips were 34. After surgery, her breast size increased to 38, while her waist rose to 16 and hips to 38.
