A German plastic surgeon has told how he built himself the perfect wife after wedding a "dowdy" woman "for her potential".
Reza Vossough sculpted his 33-year-old bride Cany with eight surgeries to change her chest, thighs, eyes and face, The Sun newspaper reports.
"It's almost like being God — you have the ability to change nature," the newspaper quoted him as saying.
"When I first met Cany, she had physical deficiencies, but I could see there was something there ... she had big hips and big thighs, so we made corrections, then did a little bit more."
The 48-year-old spent five years pumping 1,600 grams of silicone into his wife's body, changing her breasts from a size A cup to a size F.
Cany, a former waitress who is now a model, also had her lips enhanced, her eyebrows lifted and forehead ironed.
She had nip-and-tuck operations on her stomach, bottom and thighs.
Only after $32,500 of cosmetic surgery did Dr Vossough, 48, feel he had married his dream girl.
"When your husband is a plastic surgeon, then the scalpel is your friend," she told The Sun.
