Oscar Wilde famously said, “be yourself, everyone else is already taken”, but 42-year-old mom of two Claudia Sierra was determined to become someone else entirely. Specifically, the First Lady of the United States, Melania Trump.
Sierra had struggled with body confidence issues her whole life because of childhood bullying. “Since I was a young girl, I was made fun of for the color of my skin, nose, hair and everything,” she revealed to the Daily Mail. “Melania Trump is the most beautiful woman,” Sierra said in an interview with Inside Edition. “She’s perfect to me.” “I remember as a child, I would Scotch tape the tip of my nose to my forehead because I wanted a nose like all of the other girls,” she added to the Daily Mail. “Despite my parents telling me I looked beautiful, I would get into the bathtub and try to lighten my skin by scrubbing it with a loofah, because all the girls I knew had lighter complexions.” Unfortunately, Sierra’s body confidence issues only grew when she had to get a partial mastectomy after she was diagnosed with cancer, the Star-Telegram reported. Her issues were worsened further still by men’s opinions of her appearance. “I was getting rejected by men and it was killing my soul,” she revealed to New York Daily News. “Nobody was picking me. So I said, ‘let me change everything because I don’t want any part that’s been touched by anyone.’” The turning point came for Sierra in November 2016. On a disastrous date, a man told her that he couldn’t believe her age because she “looked much older”. It was then that she decided to go under the knife. In June of this year, Sierra spent a gruelling ten hours having plastic surgery at Dr Franklin Rose’s office in Houston. She had nine procedures carried out – costing between $50,000 and $70,000, the New York Daily News reported. Sierra’s surgeries included breast augmentation, a tummy tuck and a Brazilian butt lift. She also had numerous facial procedures in an attempt to turn her into the First Lady. In fact, Dr Rose even had photographs of Melania Trump to repeatedly refer to as he worked. After the gruelling surgery was over, Sierra remained in hiding as she recovered and decided unveil her dramatic transformation on Inside Edition. It’s hard to deny that she bears a striking resemblance to Melania Trump now. The transformation was so remarkable that even Dr Rose was impressed by how it looked. “I was shocked,” he said at Sierra’s unveiling party. “I didn’t recognize her. I said, ‘Is that Melania Trump?’” “I’m so excited,” Sierra said. “I’m absolutely overwhelmed. I love my transformation.” Whilst Sierra’s newly found happiness is a good thing, the fact that she felt the need to change her appearance so drastically reflects a disturbing trend in popular culture which has caused many people to go under the knife to look like celebrities. You can watch the mom of two’s dramatic transformation on Inside Edition here in all its plastic glory. Plastic surgery is addictive. People who opt for it and love the results often return to plastic surgeons time and time again in search of the perfect body. It’s been reported that those who’ve already been under the knife are 50% more likely to do it again. Before going under the knife, Sierra was undoubtedly a very attractive woman in her own right. Her decision to change herself in this way could therefore lead to regret later in life – although we hope that she remains happy with her new look.
