SINCE she was a teenager, Cherri Lee has idolised the Kardashian family and admired their trademark curvy figures.
After spending an astonishing £50,000 on surgery, the 28-year-old says she has finally achieved her dream of looking just like her idol, Kim – even if she gets the occasional troll.

Cherri, from South Korea, has spent the last eight years splashing out on procedures including three Brazilian butt lifts – which can often be dangerous – as well as facial surgeries.
She had her first operation aged 20 following a tough break-up, but says after investing in 34GGG boobs, her ex has come crawling back.
“After the break-up, my confidence was at rock-bottom” she explains. “I always wanted the glamorous Kardashian look with the big bum and hourglass figure.
“Since seeing my transformation, my ex has been back in touch and said he wants me now – but I’m too good for him and I’m getting a higher calibre of men approaching me!”
Cherri, whose South Korean name is Hanbyeol, has 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 glam look – and she says her appearance has changed so much that strangers do not even realise she is from South Korea.
“I actually look like a completely different person now,” she says. “Some of my Korean family don’t even recognise me anymore.
“Kim has always been an inspiration to me and she’s the most beautiful woman in the world in my eyes.
“I don’t regret a single procedure and I’d do it all again the same – my only regret is why didn’t I do it sooner!”
Between 2019 and 2021, Cherri, a part-time English teacher, had three Brazilian butt lifts to get Kim’s world-famous behind.
“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, a double chin reduction and two rounds of buccal fat removal, which thins the cheeks.
But she has admitted she feels she has now achieved her goal, and hasn’t been 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 would get a buzz when I would wake up in excruciating pain and then see myself afterwards and it would be my reward.
“I’m so grateful that not one procedure I had done went wrong, because I know that can happen.”
She now has 1050cc implants in each breast – making her a 34GGG cup size – 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 her,” she says.
“I do get people commenting from behind, thinking I can’t hear them asking each other if I’m Kim.
“I get people saying I should be her body double.”
Cherri says she gets lots of different reactions from people when out in public, too.
“I love it when people stop and give me compliments,” she says. “But I hate it when guys ask for my number.
Dangers of cosmetic surgery
COMESTIC surgery procedures have become increasingly popular among young people with social media pressures mounting.
While the results may seem glamorous, the effects can be deadly.
The Brazilian Butt Lift, or BBL, has been cited as having the highest rate of death for any aesthetic procedure, with as many as one in 3,000 patients dying as a result of the surgery according to Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors.
The procedure involves removing fat deposits from one part of the body and injecting this fat into the buttocks, in order for the butt to appear more “full” and “firm.”
If performed incorrectly, fat or fillers can enter one of the major blood vessels, resulting in a fatal pulmonary embolism.
Since 2015, the number of butt lifts performed globally has grown by 77.6%, according to a recent survey by the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
According to local reports, in recent years, 15 women have died after BBLs in south Florida alone.
Typically, this surgery can cost anywhere between $3,000 to $30,000.
“That happened a few times when I was in London – it offends me when they think they stand a chance!
“I have had a few negative reactions as well.
“Once a middle-aged lady looked at me and asked how much I charge per hour, suggesting I was a sex worker. I was out in public wearing a summer dress – it was plain rude.
“But I don’t let it affect me. If you have nothing nice to say, jog on.”
She described her decision to have her surgeries – which many might question – as the best decision she ever made.
“I’ve always been an attention seeker,” she says. “It makes me feel sexy. I like random people giving me compliments.
“My confidence is through the roof, I’m so much happier now than when I was younger.”
