At only 22 years old, Leo Blanco is far from going unnoticed. This Argentinian, originally from Buenos Aires, spent nearly $ 30,000, or about 26,000 euros, to look like his idol: Michael Jackson.

Besides his admiration for the singer, the young man decided early on that he wanted to look like him physically.
So it was when he was still a teenager, at the age of fifteen, that he began to undergo his first physical transformation to be like him.
Seven years later, Leo Blanco has already performed eleven cosmetic surgeries to look like Michael Jackson, including his nose (four times), cheekbones, jaw and chin. But the young man does not seem satisfied yet and wants to go even further.
A change that worries his mother who admits to no longer recognizing her son and fears that the latter succumbs to one of his operations.
Closer and closer to his idol
Today, the resemblance between the King of Pop and Leo Blanco is so impressive that he performs. In an interview with Barcroft TV, the young man said he wanted to be "the best Michael Jackson impersonator in the world." "Each surgery brings me closer and closer to my goal […] It was impossible to only do one or two operations, I always want more and more." A transformation that appeals to more than one in the street as shown in the video.
