When you go to pick up Justin Bieber’s latest single, “Hold Tight,” make sure you don’t accidentally pick up a track by Toby Bieber. That’s what friends of Toby Sheldon call him after the the LA-based songwriter spent the past five years and nearly $100,000 on plastic surgery in the hopes of resembling his idol.

The 33-year old grownup idolizes the Canadian crooner to such an extent that he underwent multiple plastic surgeries, injections and hair transplants in order “to look like Justin,” according to Complex. “Once Justin shot to fame his face was everywhere,” Sheldon told the Daily Mail, “and I all I kept thinking when I saw his picture was, ‘I want to look like him.'” To achieve Bieber’s “youthful” look, Sheldon got many, many costly procedures including Botox and Aquamid injections, a chin reduction and eyelid surgery.

Sheldon’s most recent operation was a so-called “smile surgery,” which was done in three parts and was meant to make Sheldon’s smile look just like Bieber’s, according to multiple reports. That one surgery reportedly set Sheldon back over $15,000 and the aspiring songwriter has spent his entire life savings on his dream to look like Bieber.

In addition to the financial cost of the surgery, the physical toll has also been high. “My smile surgery took more than a month to recover from,” Sheldon recalled to the British tabloid Closer. “And, after my eyelid surgery, I couldn’t open my eyes for a week.”

For his part, though, Sheldon seems to believe it was money well spent. “My friends shower me with compliments,” he told British tabloid, Closer. “They even call me Toby Bieber.” However, the songwriter apparently cites a fear of aging, and not Bieber fever for his decisions to undergo surgery.

So very sad and the poor guy still looks nothing like Bieber and more like he's been bungey jumping with the cords attached to his face.

If you're going to write a story on this guy then you should include a picture - Given that you can even get the picture off 9gag right now especially.

What a moron!!! The plastic surgeon should have suggested psychiatric help! Bieber is a little F-tard.

And ten years down the road when Bieber is nobody or worse - people actively rejecting everything Bieber like they did some artists during the years I grew up - I wonder how this now look alike fellow will feel about his choices.

Buyer's regret? I can think of many, many different things I'd spend $100K on. Pay off my mortgage would be item #1. Major rainy day fund would be option #2. 


Good luck fellow. Hope you aren't like the transsexual I heard about in the news recently that regretted her/his choices so much that it "ruined" their life.

@DanWesley Good point. I'm no authority on Bieber, as I'm over twelve and not a girl, but IMO (I add that for legal reasons) an ethically conscious surgeon would not have done this. This man is either in need of psychiatric help, or has some reason (at 33!) to want to appeal to Bieber's fans. Either way, the surgeon should be hearing alarm bells rather than the ring of a cash register.

 @LiveKidraul @joeaverager  LEGENDARY? describe me the term LEGENDARY JUSTIN BEIBER, did he changed the course of music, does he know anything about music, A legendary artist is the one who makes a POSITIVE mark on the world of music, legendary is The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Michael Jackson,  The Who, Led Zepplin. they are the ones who created what is now mainstream music, but unfortunately they were taken over by crappy whiny artists like Justin Beiber. Tell me one talent that he has, he can't dance, sing, use auto-tune, is arrogant, pee's in a mopping bucket, do drugs, he is like a typical attention hoe, and just want to do some celebrity stunts to get recognition in the news again and again. There is a reason why most of the world hates Justin Beiber,  and he is famous just because of the fake news recognition he gets, if you want to know how a "real" loved celebrity works, how a celebrity can influence millions, just go and read about The Beatles, Led Zepplin, they used to have many thousands of fans on average in their concerts, they used to sell millions of copies within some time, and that was all without T.V, radios or any other "recent technological" stuff, if justin had the talent, he could win hearts of millions, but he doesn't, he doesn't have anything, not even the looks.. sorry.. it is a fact, one day will come when he will be no one, everyone will forget him. Being a 18 year old teenager, I envy those people who were born when "real legendary" artists were there....

@HamzaAhmed @LiveKidraul @joeaverager This is a no-win, as much as I agree with you. Any argument based on proper music that's more than five minutes old will be dismissed, as it always has been.

In the 1980's, Stock Aitken and Waterman (spits on ground in disgust) recognised this, and gave us the Reynolds Girls, two nobodies who sang about the "out of date" irrelevance of Pink Floyd, Dire Straits etc., and they got rich doing it, before disappearing without a trace. I may be the only person who still remembers them, and I don't even know why, except to make this point. 

After a few flavours of the month like Bieber have passed, the pop fan often gets it, and realises that there is something better. You, being 18, are in a better position to educate such survivors than I am. (Sadly, this 33 year old doesn't get it, and has been taken to the cleaners by an unscrupulous plastic surgeon.)

And don't worry that you "missed" the heyday of great musicians of the past, there was stupid, manipulative bubblegum pop back then too (although the media machine was a little less sophisticated, admittedly), and there's great music now.
