Filipino Herbert Chavez has changed beyond recognition for the sake of a childhood dream – to be like Superman.
He has already undergone 23 plastic interventions in order to look not like a dark-skinned Asian, but like a blue-eyed superhero.
In fact, Chavez devoted his entire life – 22 years – to the struggle for the ideal. Now the man is 41 years old!
How much longer will he be able to appear as a youthful Superman? Can he find himself? Rhetorical question…
The only misfortune that the superhero cannot overcome in any way is a beer belly.
Chavez even had to seek help from a plastic surgeon. The latter advised him to go in for sports and stop eating chocolates at night.
Liposuction and 6 pack abs implants can negatively affect his health.
For the same reason, he had to abandon another fix idea – to increase his height. Because in comics, a superhero is much taller than 170 cm.
For his appearance, the man paid $7,000, while the average salary in the Philippines is $1.4 per hour.
The man does not reveal the secret of how he earned on all these operations, because he grew up in a very poor family. His father is a tricycle rickshaw driver in Calamba and his mother is a street food vendor.
At the moment, the man works as a children’s animator, he likes to amuse children, give them happiness, smiles, and hope.
