I’ve Spent $60,000 Turning Into An Elf | HOOKED ON THE LOOK


LUIS PADRON: I feel like I want to express
of how I feel inside like a fantasy character. So that’s why plastic surgery is very, very
important part of my transformation. LUIS PADRON: I usually spend around two hours
a day to do my makeup until it looks exactly as I want and I try to make it look as natural
as possible. But at the same time looking fake as a fantasy being. Hello, everybody! My name is
Luis Padron, the Human Elf, or how they call me on the internet- the Plastic Prince. LUIS PADRON: I am undergoing plastic surgery
to become a real-life fantasy being. I call myself plastic prince because it’s the mix
between fairy-tales and the modern world that it’s full of plastic. This highlighter in
my nose will make it look more smaller and pointy. I have around forty procedures in
total. Some of them are really big and some of them are really small. I have spend around
60k US dollars in total. COMM: Plastic surgery is incredibly popular
in Luis Padron’s home country of Argentina. But wanting to look like an Elf is altogether
less common. LUIS PADRON: Under the prosthetic Elf- ears,
I have my real ears shaped a bit more pointy like an Elf. I have my eyes done, I changed
the eye colour six times now, I did my nose two times, fillers in my whole face multiple
times. The last one was very heavy. It was my entire jawline reshaped. They have to cut
the bone in four parts, then they removed a little part from the bone and then they
make it really sharp like a diamond. LUIS PADRON: Some surgeries hurt a lot. I
have to admit that sometimes I am like, I can’t stand it but it’s a part of the
journey. LUIS PADRON: Oh, my family! They didn’t
like it at first. They were scared of what I wanted to do. But then I did my first surgery,
then I did my second surgery and my third surgery. And they were, like, ‘We can’t
stop him.’ LUIS PADRON: As a child, I love fantasy movies.
Also fantasy books, like Harry Potter or Lord of The Rings. When I was a teenager, I found
these creatures from Love and Light called Pleiadians. They are perfect human beings
from the space. They are mix between Elf and Aliens. They are very pale, they are very
tall, they have this silver long hair, big, big eyes. And I took them as the icon I want
to become. COMM: It’s not just plastic surgery that
helps Luis achieve his Elfish looks. LUIS PADRON: I use a lot of designer clothing.
I use a lot of unique pieces; they are one of a kind. I wanted to do hair transplant, so,
I have to cut it and let it grow black. So to keep maintaining my Elf look, I started
using white wigs. I don’t use the wigs that often unless it’s a special occasion. I
have a huge collection of 500 contact lenses and I use them all the time. I have different
models, different colours. I am a huge, huge, huge fan of them. These are one of my favourites,
the scleral lens. They gives me this fantasy look, this strange outwardly look that I love.
This maybe too much for the doctors, so, I will change the model. LUIS PADRON: Now I need the keys and goodbye,
fantasy world and hello, real world. LUIS PADRON: There are certain activities
that I can’t do when I am doing plastic surgery. For example, when I did my jaw I
have to eat one month only liquids. It was very hard for me because I love eating. The
reaction in public is really, some are good, some are bad. But most of them are just, they
usually want to take pictures, take selfies with me. They treat me very well, like a real
prince. So I am okay with that. LUIS PADRON: The people is really-really nice
on internet. Some of them are nasty but I think the problem is not with me, it is with
them. LUIS PADRON: We arrived at the doctor’s
place. So we are going to have the meeting now. I hope everything goes well. Let’s
see if I can have the surgery I want. LUIS PADRON: It was to the other side. COMM: Today Luis has an appointment with the
plastic surgeon about tightening the skin around his face following his latest jaw surgery. LUIS PADRON: I still have some surgeries on
the way to become what I want to become. I still need some liftings, then an Adam’s
apple reduction, cat eyes, another eye colour change and then some more fillers, another
nose job maybe and I can be done with that. I also want to add some fangs to my teeth. DR. GARCIA: I never has an elf patient or
a person who wants to become an elf. I think it’s a privilege and it’s very tempting
to perform the surgery because this is the first time ever I have this opportunity. LUIS PADRON: I really don’t dress like this
to provoke a reaction. I dress like this because I like to look like this for me and not for
the others. It is important for me because I feel like I want to express of how I feel
inside like a fantasy character and I want to take these to the outside world.
