A man who's obsessed with Superman has had extreme plastic surgery to look like his fictional hero. Herbert Chavez, 35, reportedly underwent chin augmentation, a nose job, silicone lip injections and thigh implants, according to a news report in the Philippines that's been translated on RealSelf.com. There's speculation that he's had even more than that.

According to the report, Superman wannabe has been going under the knife since 1995 to achieve his heroic appearance. So far he's had:


  • Chin augmentation (for the cleft)
  • Rhinoplasty (he wants Christopher Reeves’ nose)
  • Silicone injections to his lips
  • Thigh implants

Speculated (just look at the before and after!)

  • Eye surgery
  • Cheek augmentation
  • Jaw augmentation

A psychiatrist says Chavez has a bona fide problem, it's called Body Dysmorphic Disorder, meaning he's completely carried away with his flaws and with making changes to his body.

Apparently he started on all this in 1995, when the TV show starring Cain was on the air. I wonder if anyone out there is undergoing cosmetic surgery to become Lex Luthor.
