Cape Town - People will go to extreme lengths to look like their favourite celebrity. 

Take this transgender model for example, who spent $75 000 (R900 000) on cosmetic surgery in a bid to look exactly like Kylie Jenner.

Kyleigh Potts from Denver, Colorado in the US, says she’s obsessed with the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star. 

Kyleigh feels she can relate to Kylie (20) because she also felt like an outcast and ugly duckling. But after seeing the make-up mogul’s incredible transformation, she became inspired, the Daily Mail reports.

“When I saw her come into herself and transform from the ugly duckling to the b***h everybody wants to be – every girl wants to be her, and every guy wants to sleep with her – I resonated with that,” Kyleigh says.

“I always thought I was unattractive, ugly and never enough through the trauma of being bullied that I found confidence through altering myself.”


Kyleigh kicked off her transformation with lip fillers three years ago and has undergone more than 40 procedures, including lip-filler top-ups every three months, The Sun reports.

To resemble the new mom even more, Kyleigh underwent surgery to turn her hormone-grown A-cup breasts into a 34DDDs and has even had chin implants.

“I’ve spent the last four years perfecting my transition into the beautiful woman I always knew I was.

“Unlike most transgender women I’m proud of the fact I have male genitalia. I never wish to change them,” she says.

According to Viral Thread, the 23-year-old believes her transition was fate after growing up as a boy named Kyle Leigh, which sounded similar to her idol’s name.

Kyleigh plans to undergo more surgery to be the perfect Kylie lookalike.

“My next plans are to have more facial work done, voice-feminisation surgery and buttock augmentation,” Kyleigh says.

“I want to get butt implants, to pin and reshape my ears, a bullhorn lip lift, a blepharoplasty to help open up my eyes and lower my hairline.”
