The 21 year old, known only as Xiaoqing says that she's doing this to win back her boyfriend whom she broke up with, because of his obsession with Alba. Now she wants him back.
"When I broke up with my boyfriend, I was very sad," Xiaoqing said, "My friends...kept consoling me but it did not work, so they suggested I do plastic surgery to look like her [Alba]"
Jiang Shan, a representative from Shanghai Time Plastic Surgery Hospital said that he has spoken to Xiaoqing and advised her to think seriously about what she is doing.
"If she wants to look much better than she does now, for example, if she wants her skin to look smoother and her overall facial facade to look more beautiful, I think we are able to help fulfil her wishes," Jiang said.
"But if she wants to totally look like Jessica Alba, I would think she is still not confident of herself and that she needs to solve this problem psychologically."
Speaking about her ex boyfriend, Xiaoging said, "I have never been able to let him go. If in the end he still does not accept me after I undergo the plastic surgeries. I will give up. I will then choose to let go, start afresh and live life by myself."
Xiaoqing told reporters that she would also speak to her mother while visiting home during the annual new year holiday before she makes her final decision.
"I'm not only doing it for my ex-boyfriend but more myself," she said. "I am a psychologically weak person. I want to do something to challenge myself and build a strong personality through it."
It has also been revealed that doctors at the Shanghai Time Plastic Surgery Hospital have made the offer to do the transformation for free in order to showcase their skills with the surgical knife.
I'm not really quite sure what my opinion of this is. I agree that it's we have the right to do whatever we want to our body, as it belongs to us, but this seems to take that to a whole new level. She can't be *that* desperate for a good doppelganger to put on Facebook, can she?!
Also, the fact that she is getting this procedure for free, I think, is a bad idea. Her having the knowledge that she will be saving thousands of dollars is more than likely just encouraging her to go ahead with it when she may regret it in the future.
At the end of the day though, if these are the lengths someone has to go to in order to get a boyfriend back, I don't think he's really worth having! If he wants a girlfriend that looks like Jessica Alba, he might as well go and buy a blow up doll and stick a photo of Jessica on it's head.
