A woman has had six ribs removed to give her a 14-inch waist in a bid to appear as a real-life Jessica Rabbit.
Pixee Fox, a former electrician from Stockholm who now lives in North Carolina, has spent almost £80,000 on 15 surgeries to restructure her body.
The 25-year-old, who is 5ft 4in tall, has gone from 30-24-34 measurements to 38-16-39.
"I am transforming myself from human to living cartoon," Fox wrote on her blog.
Her latest operation in Indianapolis required five hours of keyhole surgery.
As a result of her many surgeries, Fox is reportedly unable to eat heavier foods – such as meat or bread – and instead has to restrict her diet to nuts, vegetables and fruit, which she blends into smoothies.
She claims the changes to her body, emulating that of cartoon characters, represent the idealisation of the female body.
"I want to have the tiny waist, the butt, big boobs, big eyes and a really pretty face," she told the Daily Mail.
