A single mother-of-three spent $30,000 on plastic surgery to look like Meghan Markle showed off her new look.
Xochytl ‘Xochi’ Greer, a 36-year-old lawyer from Houston, Texas, documented her transformation on ABC News’ Nightline as she underwent liposuction, fat grafting, and rhinoplasty to look like Meghan.
She told before the plastic surgery: ‘’I think she’s a beautiful woman, and, as I’m changing the features that I have, yes, I want those features to more resemble Meghan.’’
‘’I take that as a huge amazing compliment because she’s a gorgeous woman,’ she said. ‘That has kind of helped inspire me and triggered how I knew what I wanted to do.’’
Greer took the help of a well-known plastic surgeon in Houston named Dr Franklin Rose who has made headlines for taking on similar transformations.
Last year, Dr Rose performed surgery on Jenny Stuart and Sarah Schmidt to make them look more like Ivanka Trump.
‘’My body has changed since having another child. My self-esteem was just lower because the way things went with the father of my child,’ she explained. ‘I am hoping that this will give me something that I need to get back out there.’’
She admitted that she had a ‘very hard time talking to men in a non-friendship manner,’ and she believed going under the knife would be a boost to her confidence.
‘’The plastic surgery just helps to give me more self-confidence on my outward appearance while I am fixing my inward appearance, you know, privately through therapy and things,’’ she said.
The doctor told her: ‘’We’re going to soften the nose. It’s a pretty nose, really. We’ll get it a little bit more like Meghan Markle,’’
‘’We’re going to make two baby incisions so you get rid of all this baby fat.’’
‘’I have examined maybe 30,000 patients over this surgical career of mine, so you can tell very quickly who is a stable a patient or patients who have unreasonable expectations,’’ he said.
Greer was in surgery for seven hours, and after the surgery ended, she was excited to see her new look.
She said: ‘’I can already see some changes,’’
‘’I am really, really excited to see these results once the swelling goes down.’’
Greer said that she is very happy with the results’ post-surgery.
She told: ‘’I didn’t realize how down I was until I realized how happy I am and excited, and I get out of bed happy.’’
‘’I didn’t go into this with an unrealistic expectation [that] people were going to go, “Oh my gosh, is that Meghan Markle?” There are certain features that resemble Meghan now,’’ she said.
‘’But I look in the mirror and I still see me, just a better version of me.’’
In another interview, Greer revealed that her 23-month-old daughter Isla now yells, ‘Mommy, mommy,’ whenever she sees pictures of Markle.
‘I had very big self-confidence issues, but now I feel I can put on a nice dress and don’t need to wear much make-up because I feel great,’ she said of her transformation.
‘I still wear the same sized clothing but they fit perfectly now, I don’t have big long rolls hanging out of my pants anymore.
‘I don’t think I look identical to Meghan Markle, but I do see our similarities a lot more now, my nose definitely resembles hers more closely,’ she added.
‘I also had fillers in my jawline to have a stronger jaw like she does, so I do feel I more strongly resemble her now.’
