A teenager claiming to have gone under the knife more than 50 times in just a few months to look Angelina Jolie has been accused of photoshopping her images.

Nineteen-year-old Sahar Tabar, from Iran, also said she has shed 80 lbs in order to maintain a weight of just 88 lbs in her quest to look like the Tomb Raider star.

However, the Instagram star - who boasts more than 430,000 followers - has now been called out by eagle-eyed redditers.

One unconvinced user, under the name of Zaza9000, seems to have spotted strange distortions around the Jolie-superfan's head.

Another posted links to two selfies and claimed that they show her 'before' and 'after' her digital handiwork.

Instagram users are now also questioning whether the Iranian woman's posts are exaggerated to gain publicity.

"I'm wondering if this whole thing is an internet stunt," wrote one user, while another simply wrote: "Good photoshopping."


Either way, the reaction online to her looks hasn't been the most supportive - one person cruelly suggested that she looks less like Angelina Jolie and more like the Corpse Bride, from Tim Burton's 2005 animated film of the same name.

One person even wrote 'Zombie' beneath a recent shot posted on Instagram.

Another was a bit more scathing: "Her: Doc make me look like an 8 month old corpse. Doc: say no more."

If a person does actually go under the knife, however, then the chances are their face will look nothing like their passport photo right after surgery.

That's what three women encountered as they were flying from South Korea following various procedures on their faces.

The image was posted on a Chinese social networking site, where it's reported that the trio flew to South Korea during what's known as Golden Week, the annual seven-day holiday given to all Chinese workers.

It can take weeks for a patient to fully recover from facial surgery, as swelling and bleeding can occur past the normal 14-day period.

But it appears that South Korean plastic surgeons have a particular talent for incredible facial transformations. A border security official told the Metro, 23 women were stopped from entering China in 2009 after receiving dramatic surgery.

So until Chinese plastic surgery patients can extend their stay to fully complete their recovery process, many will continue to be pulled up at airport security looking like they've been stung by a couple of bees.
