Texas Barbie Doll Jenny Lee On Oprah’s “Where Are They Now?”

Tuesday, July 30th, 2013

You may recognize Jenny Lee, otherwise known as the Texas Barbie Doll. She’s reportedly undergone nearly 60 cosmetic surgery procedures. Jenny was kind enough to do a Q&A for this very website several years ago. You can read the interview HERE.


Jenny Lee Answers Your Questions

Sunday, October 26th, 2008

Jenny Lee is known to some as a “Human Barbie Doll,” and has admittedly undergone some 30 plastic surgery procedures. She has been featured on Oprah, Larry King Live, and E!’s Celebrity Plastic Surgery. She has been kind enough to answer questions from our readers. Note: I have never treated Jenny Lee.

Was there a point when you thought you might have an addiction to Cosmetic Surgery?

There was never a point where I personally thought I had an “addiction” to plastic surgery. I was being treated by a psychiatrist for severe anxiety and panic attacks, and the topic of surgery came up one day, and he asked “How many surgeries/procedures have you had?” and that brought on a whole other level of treatment because on top of anxiety and depression, he told me I had BDD (Body Dismorphia Disorder).

When you had your first few surgeries, what were people’s reactions to the change?

When I had my breasts done, there wasn’t much reaction, as it was my first surgery. My second I had my breast done again with full body lipo, and my nose. When I was 25 I had my nose done again and a invasive brow lift (cut from ear to ear all through my scalp) and THEN the reaction came. Shock would be the word I would use. The brow lift takes YEARS to soften, and I looked really weird for at least a year while that healed. Thank God I have good movement again. Mission was accomplished though….My friends my age (32) are either getting Botox religiously on their forehead and between their brows every 3 months, or the ones who don’t look much older than they are.

Are they any procedures that you would like to do that your Plastic Surgeon has said no to

YES! He said no to more Lipo, no to more nose jobs, I asked for jaw implants, he said no, too masculine, and ABSOLUTELY NO to a inner thigh lift, no matter how much I begged (the scar which is initially in your panty line migrates down your leg over time, and the results are NOT pretty. I have seen someone personally who had it, so I know what he was saying is true.).

What is your favourite feature on yourself?

Ummm, right now I would say my nose. It really turned out nicely after FOUR TIMES!

Do you wish you hadn’t done one of your procedures, that the original part was better?

This is a hard question to answer because everything is already done and it is hard to think about what I would un-do if I could. I love my nose today, and had I been in a different situation in my life 11 years ago I think I would still like my old nose. It reminded me of my dad, who has since passed, and it was a feature I shared with my older sister prominently.

What is the one surgery that you are happiest with and which one are you least happy with?

Happiest with my nose, least happy with NOT getting both breasts lifted (the left one didn’t need lifting, just the right). I don’t like that my right nipple looks different than my left. So I will have surgery to fix that within the next 6 months, and I will get a breast lift on both breasts and internal pocket work (to make the pocket smaller).

Do you ever regret any of your surgeries and wish you could go back to a more natural look?

I regretted the brow lift at first for a few years because it was so extreme, but now I am glad I did it.

Ask Jenny Lee

Monday, October 20th, 2008

The actress Jenny Lee is known around the world as a human Barbie doll and has admitted to undergoing dozens of plastic surgeries. She has been featured on Oprah, Larry King Live, Entertainment Tonight, and E!’s Celebrity Plastic Surgery (which I was also on!). Many consider her to be a symbol of plastic surgery excess, and she has been very up front in talking with the media about her plastic surgery. Ms. Lee has graciously offered to answer questions from the readers of Celebrity Cosmetic Surgery. The last time I posted on her (click here), the comments ranged from nasty to supportive.

If you would like to ask any questions to Ms. Jenny Lee, leave the question on the ‘comments’ section, and she will answer them in a future post.

Jenny Lee- Plastic Surgery “Enthusiast”

Thursday, July 24th, 2008

After Jocelyn Wildenstein, model /actress Jenny Lee may be the person most well-known primarily for her plastic surgery. It’s rumored that she’s had over 30 plastic surgery procedures performed on her, and she is planning many more in the future. She really does look like a human Barbie doll. She has an interesting “About Me” page on her website, where she explains her thoughts on plastic surgery.

She does not reveal who her plastic surgeon is. No, it’s not me. I wouldn’t do this much work on someone, even if it paid for my house (and my car and my son’s college education). Maybe it’s my friend Dr. Steve Svehlak (just kidding Steve!).
