Kim Kardashian’s Look-A-Like Spends $120K On Detransitioning To Her Original Self
Versace Model Jennifer Pamplona, after spending nearly $600,000 (over ₹4.7 crore) on procedures to transform herself into a Kim Kardashian lookalike, has now paid $120,000 (over ₹95 lakh) to “detransition” back to her former appearance.

When the Kardashian-Jenner clan rose to prominence with their iconic reality TV series, “Keeping Up With The Kardashians,” the family soon became a household name for flaunting their lives on screen.
Millions across the world instantly became fascinated by the famous sisters, especially Kim, whose voluptuous body made her the center of attention.
Among the KKW Beauty founder’s die-hard fans was 17-year-old Pamplona, who happily embarked on a plastic surgery journey in 2010 to look like her idol.
After getting a taste of cosmetic beauty, the young girl became insatiable, undergoing more than 40 procedures to become a member of the Kardashian family.
These operations included three rhinoplasties and eight bottom surgeries consisting of butt implants and fat injections to imitate Kim’s enormous backside.
Over 12 years, Pamplona gained international recognition for her transformation journey, even getting profiled in The Post and gaining over 1 million Instagram followers.
However, these milestones did not bring happiness as the 29-year-old soon realized her life was going down the wrong path.
“I discovered that I was addicted to surgery, and I wasn’t happy. I was putting filler in my face like I was in the supermarket,” the Brazilian beauty confessed, noting that she lost control while trying to keep up with her newfound fame.
To make matters worse, the social media influencer was not being recognized as herself but as Kim’s counterpart, a problem the media personality found irritating. In her words:
“I had worked and studied and was a businesswoman. I had done all these things and had all these achievements in my personal life, but I was only being recognized because I looked like a Kardashian.”
Finally, Pamplona understood that her unhappiness came from body dysmorphia and decided to return to her original appearance by undergoing a detransition surgery.
The 29-year-old found a doctor in Istanbul who claimed he could revert her enhanced surgical appearance to its original state, but the procedure did not come cheap.
After shelling out $120K to reconstruct her facial features, the former SKIMS founder’s look-a-like came out looking like a new person. However, Pamplona suffered complications during the operation.
The Brazilian influencer admitted that she thought she was at death’s door after “bleeding from her cheeks” for three days because of an infection.
Fortunately, the brunette survived the traumatic ordeal and continues to update fans on her recovery journey via pictures while embracing her authentic self.
“The best feeling is knowing I’m not in a fight with myself anymore,” Pamplona revealed, “I am now who I wanted to be, and I really now understand the meaning of life.”
Given her experience with the ugly side of plastic surgery, the 29-year-old wished to enlighten the world about the dangers of cosmetic procedures and body dysmorphia by working on a documentary titled “Addiction.”
The Glamor Award Winner’s Stalker Threatened To Kill Her Boyfriend
As previously reported by The Blast, the CFDA Influencer Award winner filed for legal protection against an unnamed man who threatened to harm her and her boyfriend, Pete Davidson.
According to the legal documents obtained by the news outlet, “The Kardashians” star has received over 30 letters from this alleged stalker where the anonymous male made numerous distressing remarks about Kim.
The perpetrator claimed the TV personality and the “Set It Up” actor were on his hit list, noting that Davidson “must and will die” as soon as he spotted the comedian in New York or Los Angeles.
The “Disaster Movie” actress filed a restraining order against this obsessed fan at the Los Angeles County Courts after receiving several letters containing “false and delusional claims” and a written bomb threat.
In support of the famous couple, a Los Angeles judge ordered a temporary restraining order against this man, forbidding him from contacting or harassing the lovebirds.
