A man who spent a whopping £30,000 to make himself look like an Instagram filter says he gets trolled over his looks and compared to the mask from The Purge.
Levi Jed Murphy, 24, has had fillers in his lips, cheeks, chin, jaw and under his eyes as well as having a nose job, lip lift, a temple lift and a cat eye lift. He's also had a teeth straightening procedure.
In total, he's spent more than £30,000 on cosmetic and surgical procedures and, while he's delighted with how he looks, not everyone is so positive and he's often sent nasty messages on social media.
But Levi, from Manchester, doesn't let the negative comments and trolls get him down and says he 'doesn't take anything to heart'.
Levi, who runs a successful OnlyFans account with his boyfriend, said: "When I was nineteen I got my first syringe of lip filler.
"I ended up loving how it looked and went back like a month later and have kept on going back since.
"When I was 20, I started getting cheek, jaw and under eye fillers, but I've lost count of how many.
"Because of my popularity, I get it for free now by doing promos - so whenever my face is looking a bit flat I can go in and get it topped up for free which is a life saver.
"By the time I was twenty, I knew I wanted to have a nose job and a lip lift.
"It wasn't because I was insecure or hated the way I looked, but because I get bored of my face easily and like to change up my look.
"I could happily live with the face I have now or even before surgery but I like to mix things up.
"To me, it's not a big deal. It's like changing your wardrobe, but of course a little bit more extreme and painful."
I did lots of research and ended up choosing to go to Turkey, as you can get the same procedures as here in the UK but for half the price.
"At this time, I had started my OnlyFans account with my boyfriend and was earning over ten times what I was working in retail.
"The money was absolutely crazy and allowed me to have all of the work that I wanted to get done.
"Instagram put out a filter where it shows you what you would look like after having plastic surgery and I loved what I saw.
"I worked out all the different procedures that were shown in the filter and then went about having them done.
"I love grabbing people's attention - even with my surgery, I broadcast my recovery over social media to bring attention to me.
"Of course not everyone reacts well to my look and I have thousands of horrible comments from trolls who say I look like Handsome Squidward and the mask from The Purge.
"But honestly, I am so used to getting horrible comments, I don't take anything to heart. Either good or bad.
"My mum and boyfriend completely support me in whatever I do and that is what's important to me.
"I also get loads of people saying that I'm an inspiration or that I've helped them with their confidence which is cute."
