Licensed cosmetic nurse Tara Jayne is all about that Barbie world life. The Melbourne native has spent more than $200,000 on chest augmentations, no$e jobs, and Bot0x procedures to look like the iconic Barbie Doll.

Jayne has an Instagram account with more than 207 thousand followers, wherein she posts some of her updated looks and products of her procedures. The 31-year-old has gotten her fair share of haters, but she explains that this “expensive hobby” makes her happy and doesn’t care about what other people think.

An Expensive Hobby

In an interview with The Morning Show, Jayne talked about the importance of body positivity and being unashamed to express oneself through the body. She said:

“I think in this day and age, it’s very important for a woman to be able to express the way they feel and just express everything about beauty. Plastic surgery is how I do that and that’s what makes me happy. It gives me the confidence to be the best version of myself.”

Despite Jayne’s convictions, her way of life has been drastically critiqued on social media. Many of her detractors feel that she’s taking things too far with what she’s doing with her body and setting a bad example for young girls worldwide. However, Jayne is adamant about continuing this hobby despite the backlash and the mounting expenses to maintain her looks.

According to Jayne, her surgeries have helped boost her self-esteem and have made her feel more comfortable with herself. While her surgeries have more permanent effects on her body, some of her cosmetic procedures require consistent upkeep, which can get very expensive. In particular, her Botox and filler only have temporary effects on how her face looks. So, she needs to go back to the doctor to maintain her desired look.

She said:

“It’s quite easy to spend $2,000 to $5,000 at a time; it’s a pretty expensive hobby,”

While many haters aren’t fans of what she’s doing, Jayne also has her fair share of fans who adore how unapologetic she is about being herself. To preserve her mental health, Jayne only pays attention to people who have nice things to say about her.

According to her:

“I have tunnel vision when it comes to that stuff because I have dealt with bullying and people making derogatory comments my entire life. But I have learned to deal with that. I just focus on what I want to do and I am super happy and that’s all that matters… The hate is making me famous,”

With a booming social media following, Jayne claims that her lifestyle is merely opening more career opportunities for her.
