Pixee Fox, 25, who is originally from Sweden but now lives in North Carolina, recently had six ribs removed as part of her transformation to look like a living cartoon character
The former electrician has a list of surgeries planned for 2016 to continue her transformation
‘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.
She has 70,000 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.’
Pictured before her transofrmation, Pixee still had a stunning figure, but she said she was inspired to go under the knife because she wants to look like Jessica Rabbit, Aurora from Sleeping Beauty and Holli Would from Cool World

Pixee, who now lives in North Carolina, 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.
Next year Pixee will have butt and hip implants, eyelash implants, and fat removal to help make her cheeks ‘pop’ more

‘The only reason I have been able to do it now is that doctors finally started taking me seriously.
‘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.
Before she became surgery obsessed, Pixee was a fresh-faced beauty
Pixee is currently single, but has 70,000 admirers on Instagram
By continuing her intense workouts, Pixie hopes to whittle her waist down even further. She wears a corset 24 hours a day to help reach her goal

‘Now I can wear it even tighter without any pain. I think I am pretty close to the world record for smallest waist.
The current record holder is American Cathie Jung, 78, who has a 15-inch waist.
‘If I just get time to heal and workout and continue my lifestyle I’m going to go down to 14 inches,’ says Pixee.
The blonde has always been self conscious about her nose, and has had four separate rhinoplasties

Pixee says her surgeon agreed to remove her ribs because he ‘can see see I’m not a crazy person and that I know what I’m doing’
The operation is normally only performed for medical reasons, but can occasionally be done for cosmetic purposes after extensive consultatoin
She’s also had CoolSculpting, a non-invasive treatment to freeze fat
The procedures have taken 5ft 4in Pixee’s measurements from 30-24-34 to an eye-watering 38-16-39.
In a bid to shrink her waist even further, she works out daily for up to four or five hours.
Eating substantial food such as bread or meat is a struggle, as it’s uncomfortable because of her restrictive corset.
So she mainly eats vegetables, fruit and nuts, which she blends into a smoothie, as well as taking extra vitamins.
In her younger years, Pixee lived with her parents and older sister in a small rural town outside of Stockholm
‘Sweden is a very egalitarian country which does not encourage you to stand out,’ Pixie says. She never felt she fitted in before she began her makeover
‘Cartoon characters represent the idealisation of the female body,’ says Pixie

Pixee believes she’s an inspiration to fans to be true to the person that’s inside
Now that so many of her ribs have been removed, Pixee’s lower internal organs, including the liver, have lost some of their natural protection.
However, she isn’t worried about the risk to her health if she’s in an accident.
‘Before if I was in a car crash I would have broken my ribs,’ she said. ‘If that happened now I’m probably going to break my spleen instead.
‘But I’m not concerned as I have my corset as my artificial ribcage now and I wear it 24/7.’
In her younger years, Pixee lived a much less glamorous existence living with her parents and older sister in a small rural town outside of Stockholm.
‘Sweden is a very egalitarian country which does not encourage you to stand out.
Her corset makes it uncomfortable to eat full meals, so Pixee often survives on vegetables and fruit whizzed into a smoothie. She also takes extra vitamin supplements
The rib removal operation, which is irreversible, is usually performed for medical reason
Pixee says that people look up to her because of her complete devotion to what she calls ‘the bimbo life’.
‘I didn’t feel like I fitted in. I was a tomboy. I worried about my nose, I didn’t date and I felt vulnerable.’
After leaving school she trained as an electrician and saved up for a nose job.
Her boyfriend at the time then encouraged her to have two boob jobs that took her from an A to a C-cup.
But it was after splitting from him in 2013 that her obsession to become a real-life cartoon really picked up.
In total, she’s had four rhinoplasties to sculpt the perfect nose and four breast augmentations to inflate her cleavage to a J-cup.
Her upper eyelids have been operated on and she’s had two round of liposuction.
She’s had injectable fillers to plump up her cheeks and lips, and a Brazilian butt lift to give her a more rounded derri√®re.
The aspiring model has even had a labiaplasty – a so-called ‘designer vagina’ operation that reduces excess tissue from the labia.
She’s also had CoolSculpting, a non-invasive treatment to freeze fat.
The current record holder for the smallest waist in the world is American Cathie Jung, 78, who has a 15-inch waist. ¬†Pixee is hoping to steal her title

Including the rib surgery she estimates she has spent $119,200 (¬£80,000) on surgery alone.
But taking into account lost wages, medicines and travelling she estimates the true costs is thousands of dollars more.
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’.
Botox injections are also part of Pixee’s beauty routine. She’s had injectable fillers to plump her lips and cheeks too
Her unnatural proportions are not unlike those of a Barbie doll
‘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.’

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.’
However Pixee insists that she’s not aiming to inspire people to get plastic surgery.
‘What I want to do is get a message out there that whatever you decide to do, you should dare to be yourself and surround yourself with people that support you for who you are inside.
‘There are so many people out there – for example transsexual people – who feel like one person inside and it doesn’t reflect their outside.
‘For me who I was on the outside was not who I was on the inside.
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.
‘I get a lot of positive feedback from girls and many guys who want to have a change in their life, like a transformation, or just get more fit, more healthy.
‘Everyone needs inspiration, and for me to be that inspiration really makes me feel really good.’
¬†Pixee believes that people look up to her because of her complete devotion to what she calls ‘the bimbo life’.
‘There are many beautiful women who have transformed themselves in various ways, and I admire all of them,’ she says.
‘But most have only changed a few things or exaggerated one thing,’
‘My particular transformation is about achieving a total look, which requires head-to-toe transformation and total lifestyle commitment.’
Her transformation is set to continue in 2016 as she’s planning a whole new wave of surgery.
This will include butt and hip implants, eyelash implants, and cheek fat removal which will help make her cheeks ‘pop’ more.
She added: ‘There are six billion people on the planet. Why should everyone look the same? It’s boring.
‘I’m not unhappy with the way I look now. I just enjoy tweaking it.
‘I see myself as a body-modification artist. This is my job. This is what I do and I’m going to keep on sculpting.
‘It’s your life and as long as you’re happy and don’t hurt anyone, it shouldn’t be a problem.’
