Swedish model spent $135,000 (£100,000) on OPs including rib removal

  • Swedish model Pixee Fox, 25, is desperate to look like Jessica Rabbit 
  • She's already spent $135,000 (£100,000) on ops including rib removal
  • Fox, who lives in North Carolina, now wants to have butt implants
  • But doctors tell her she'll look cartoonish in a deformed, goofy, ugly way'


  • A Swedish model who's made it her life ambition to look like curvaceous cartoon character Jessica Rabbit has revealed her disappointment after being told that having even more surgery would leave her looking 'deformed'. 
    Pixee Fox, 25, is originally from Stockholm but now lives in North Carolina and had appealed to surgeons in LA to help her look even more 'cartoonish'. 

    Despite already having multiple operations including removing six ribs, three nose jobs, four boob jobs, liposuction and a Brazilian bottom lift, the tiny-waisted model says she's addicted to the idea of more procedures.

    In a bid to look like her animated idol, Fox already wears a training corset every day and has spent $135,000 (£100,000) transforming her body.

    Determined to achieve a full hourglass figure with implants in her hips and bottom, Fox travelled to Los Angeles to see the surgeons behind cosmetic surgery television show Botched, Paul Nassif and Terry Dubrow. 


    However, her consultation with the skilled surgeons didn't go to plan and after they examined her body, she was delivered the bad news that more surgery would leave her looking like the worst kind of cartoon. 

    The most dramatic surgery the former electrician from Sweden has had so far is to get six of her lower ribs removed in a bid to shrink her waist to a record-breaking 14 inches.

    She told Nassif and Dubrow that her life was all about getting more surgery, saying: 'This is my thing. I really like it and I want to create my life around it [surgery]'

    'People often come up to me and say, "Don't take this the wrong way, but you look like a cartoon". she says. 'But for me that's a compliment, that's what I want to achieve.'

    Pixee cites her inspirations as Jessica Rabbit, Aurora from Sleeping Beauty and Holli Would from Cool World.

    'The living cartoon', as she likes to be called, has 219,000 followers on Instagram and insists she is a good role model for them.
    'Those cartoon characters represent the idealisation of the female body,' she explains. 

    'I want to have the tiny waist, the butt, big boobs, big eyes and a really pretty face. 
    'Having my ribs removed was just another step in achieving that ideal.'
    Pixee, underwent the extreme five-hour keyhole surgery to have her ribs removed in Indianapolis last month after Dr Barry Eppley agreed to perform the procedure.

    The operation, which is irreversible, is usually performed for medical reasons, but it can be done for cosmetic purposes after extensive consultation.
    'Getting my ribs removed has always been a dream of mine,' Pixee says. 'But it was really hard, almost impossible, to find a surgeon to do it.
    'The only reason I have been able to do it now is that doctors finally started taking me seriously.

    ABOUT RIB REMOVAL SURGERY  

    Doctors may approve the procedure in several situations, such as the risk of a fractured rib puncturing a vital organ. 

    Excess pressure in the thoracic cavity can be relieved by rib removal. 
    Sometimes major surgery to the thoracic cavity requires rib removal to allow access to the organ that's being operated on.

    Ribs may also be removed to stop cancer spreading in the bone.
    The surgery is not recommended for cosmetic reasons, as complications can include collapsed lung, pneumonia, nerve damage, fracture to one of the other ribs, tearing of the diaphragm muscle and heavy scarring. 

    Also, the surgery is irreversible and comes with the risk of infection associated with any major operation. 

    'Those cartoon characters represent the idealisation of the female body,' she explains. 
    'I want to have the tiny waist, the butt, big boobs, big eyes and a really pretty face.

    'They they can see I'm not a crazy person and that I know what I'm doing.'
    Pixee's recovery from the $9,000 (£6,000) operation was supposed to take six weeks. 
    However, she was already back into her normal routine of wearing a corset 24/7 just two days later.
    'I can see the results and feel the difference,' she says. 'Before the corset would push against the ribs, which makes it harder and more painful to wear.

    She paid for 11 of the procedures out of her own earnings and savings.
    The rest, including her fourth breast augmentation, were paid for by fans who have been following her transformation on social media and praising her for being an 'inspiration'.
    'Your Instagram is very inspiring,' a fan called dollproject_net wrote. 'Not only because your style is so unique and sexy, but also because of the way you share your passion with us. Thank you.'
    Margaritacakes echoed the sentiment, saying: 'Your body is what motivates me to go to the gym and save up for the surgeries I plan to do! 
    'Thanks for being so rad and sharing your transformation! It's so inspirational!'
    However, kelly_het_wilhelm was less than impressed, writing: 'Gross rib removal. I just puked in my mouth.'
    But another fan reminded Pixee to ignore any negative feedback.
    'It's not anyone's business what you do to your body,' he wrote. 
    'I will never understand these people thinking they have the right to tell you how you should do things.' 
    On seeing pictures she posted while recovering in hospital after surgery, a fan wrote: 'You are so brave and so beautiful.
    'I can't believe you are so angelic having just had major surgery. Good luck healing.' 
    Annemarchner added: 'I hope you feel better now. 
    'I've been following your transformation. I hope you are happy. You look amazing.'

    A man has been jailed after fathering a child with his own daugher who he raped repeatedly

    A man has been jailed for life after fathering a child with his own daughter who he raped repeatedly from when she was just 10. 

    The man, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was given a life sentence after Derby Crown Court after jurors heard how he 'took his daughter's life' through sexual abuse. 

    His depravity was exposed when he impregnated her when she was just a teenager, having 'poisoned' the girl against her mother.  
    As she watched her abuser being led away from the dock the girl ran towards him, crying out: 'I love you and miss you.'A man has been jailed after fathering a child with his own daughter who he raped repeatedly from when she was aged just 10 (file image)

    Despite promising to stop the abuse after each attack, the man carried on abusing her until she became pregnant. 

    In a bid to terminate the pregnancy without raising concern he encouraged his daughter to continue kick boxing, the court heard. 
    Eventually, when the girl refused to tell authorities who the father of the baby was they ordered a paternity test. 

    The pair fled but were apprehended by police and the man taken into custody.   
    Giving evidence the girl told of how she was too scared to reported her father to police and still 'loved him'. 

    'The abuse has set my life on the wrong course and destroyed the normal childhood and teenage years that everyone deserves,' she said in a statement. 
    'I feared the consequences of disclosure because I love my dad.  

    'I know what he did was wrong, but I grew up with my dad by my side.
    'I just wanted him to get help to make him better but unfortunately that never happened and it has come to this.

    Appeal to stop illegal fishing in West Africa

    A leading think-tank says West African nations should crack down on illegal foreign fishing off their coastlines, and build up their fishing industries, to protect the livelihoods of millions of people.
    In a report, the Overseas Development Institute also says selling fishing rights to foreign companies is often a mistake.

    It believes that West African countries could create more than 300,000 jobs by awarding more fishing and exporting rights to national fleets.

    It is estimated that the region loses at least $1.3bn (£906m) a year from illegal, unreported and unregulated fishing.

    Abducted Nigerian singer freed


    Popular Nigerian singer Ado Halliru Daukaka, who went missing on Friday, has been found.
    He has just spoken to me from a hospital in Lafiya Lamorde, where he is recovering from his kidnap ordeal.

    It is about 120km (75 miles) from the north-eastern city of Yola where he was abducted.
    He said the kidnappers targeted him because he had released a song critical of politicians.

    Mr Daukaka said they tricked him into a car on Friday morning by asking him to record a song for them.
    They drove out of the city and then played his new release, and began asking him why he had recorded a track that mocked politicians for failing to keep their promises:
    They threatened me and said they would take my life and repeatedly asked why I was criticising politicians and warned me to stop or lose my life."
    He said they kept him without food for two days during his captivity.
    This morning the kidnappers blindfolded him and let him go in a forest, Mr Daukaka said.
    Police say the singer was found unconscious and emaciated.

    Was Kenyan 'devoured by hyenas' already dead?


    Hyenas in South Africa

    Residents did not hear screams or shouts when hyenas ate most of a 45-year-old man in Kenya's Ongata Rongai town, near the Nairobi National Park, the Kenya Wildlife Services (KWS) says.

    This raises the possibility that the man was killed elsewhere and his body dumped at the spot where it was found or the man died of alcohol poisoning before the attack on Monday night, said KWS spokesman Ngugi Gecaga.

    Police took the body to a mortuary yesterday morning and a post-mortem would establish the exact cause of death, he added.
    Mr Gecaga confirmed that hyenas - not lions, as reported by a local newspaper - fed on the man's body.
    His family has been informed of his death and is said to be extremely distressed.
