My approach was both artisic and scientific. Applying the principles of beauty I learned as an art student, including centuries-old rules of facial and body proportion, along with some basic anthropological laws of human attraction, I drew up a plan based on the Wish List below.
The Raw Material
Here's a lighthearted 30 second animated film that illustrates how I used
plastic surgery to change my looks and my life. I think it about sums things up!
You can see my many changes over the years from various angles
on the back cover of Image and Cosmetic Surgery Secrets, below.
No one had ever done anything like this before so I had no role models to follow. After spending more than two decades having various procedures and pushing the boundaries in the fields of anti-ageing and cosmetic procedures, I have hard-to-acquire inside information combined with vast personal and professional experience no one else on the planet has. Therefore I insist on - and consistently achieve - only the very best cosmetic surgery results. I have no intention of "growing old" as defined by previous generations.
In 2008 I unveiled a new look after having several procedures to look more like the classic French beauty and fellow animal lover Brigitte Bardot. I have been told I also resemble Claudia Schiffer, who looks very much like Bardot. Full details of my Bardot transformation and the procedures I had to achieve it can be found in Image and Cosmetic Surgery Secrets.
Below are the results. Just for fun I have re-created some of Bardot's most famous iconic images
When Ohio native Cindy Jackson decided to transform her face, she followed what she calls 'some basic anthropological laws of human attraction.' None of this surprises researchers studying physical attraction... Perceptions of beauty are universal and automatic, they say, in direct response to specific facial characteristics.
Lynn Smith, The Los Angeles Times
With laser-beam precision, she has repositioned tissue, cartilage and bone to transform herself into one of the most desirable women of the late 20th century.
Corinna Honan, The Daily Telegraph
She altered her appearance with plastic surgery, emerging as a kind of self-proclaimed test of the correlation between looks and success.
Hugh Downs, ABC 20/20
A true scientist behind a beautiful mask.
Dr. Neil Shulman, author of the book and hit movie, 'Doc Hollywood'
A woman that has everything going for her. She is very bright, very accomplished and very successful.
Jerry Springer, The Jerry Springer Show
Cindy is sitting opposite me... With her blonde hair, her pouty lips, and her cute button nose, I have the weird sensation that all my sexual buttons are being pushed. Which of course they are... Beneath that plastic façade is an extremely intelligent woman.
David Thomas, The Daily Express
You've seen her on television, you've seen her in all the newspapers and repeatedly on This Morning, but Cindy Jackson in the perfect flesh still comes as a surprise. She is much slimmer than you expect and much, much prettier. Not Bionic Woman, not a Barbie doll, but intelligent, direct, engaging and, here's the paradox, real.
Ruth Gorb, H&H Express
Her youthful looks and superb body have little to do with Mother Nature. On meeting Cindy, her cool blonde perfection is intimidating. But as she starts talking, it's clear she's still an unaffected small-town girl at heart.
Paula Jones, The Sun
Farm-girl turned cover-girl.
Wendy Leigh, The Sunday Mirror
For Cindy Jackson, the high priestess of cosmetic surgery, the pursuit of perfection transformed her from nerdy nobody to one of London's most beautiful sirens. Cindy truly is the ultimate makeover.
Sophie Blyth, Cover Shots
Some women who've had cosmetic surgery look grotesque. Cindy looks great.
Candice Bergen, American film and television star
She has a beauty queen's face that won't fade with time or dull from a dazzling socialite lifestyle. Her treatments read like a cosmetic surgeon's manual. The details of which would make your blood curdle.
Katrina Tweedie, Daily Record
It took determination - and a lot of money - to turn Cindy from an average looking woman into a head-turning stunner.
Carol Johnson, First For Women
Undergoing everything from facelifts to liposuction to nose jobs, she transformed herself from a plain Ohio farm girl to a glamorous beauty.
Cathy Stapells, Toronto Sun
Her metamorphosis began in 1988. From that point on, Cindy began to completely redesign her face and body... A living breathing doll brought to life by a surgeon's scalpel.
Todd Richard Newton, Plastic Surgery on E!
She has a Barbie doll body and a Hollywood face.
Esther Oxford, The Independent on Sunday
She has a perfect face, a perfect figure and she looks about 20 years younger than her age. Her image is so smooth and seamless you would think she was the original, carefree natural beauty. This blonde stunner who is now the toast of the London party circuit was once a frumpy US farm girl.
Vicky Davidson, Sunday Mail
Hers is the modern fairy-tale of the archetypal ugly duckling who was determined to be a swan... She is quite open about her odyssey for a complete aesthetic overhaul. The best facelift I have ever seen, two nose jobs, three eye operations, a permanent lip enlargement and fat-filling procedure, three chemical peels and a dermabrasion, two breast operations and four liposuctions later, the plain girl from Ohio looks Barbie-pretty - highlighted blonde hair, picture-book profile, sleek limbs, hourglass figure.
Deborah Hutton, Vogue Magazine
Is Jackson's quest to make herself physically attractive extreme? By everyday standards, yes. Is it entirely misguided? Perhaps not. Research demonstrates that it sometimes pays to be physically attractive.
Steven Neuberg, PhD, Social Psychology (University textbook)
A woman who looks 20 years younger than her age with an intellect and understanding of human behaviour 20 years beyond her age. Cindy's real-life perspective is amazingly consistent with volumes of scientific research conducted by top scholars at universities around the world.
Gordon L. Patzer PhD, author of 'The Physical Attractiveness Phenomena'
Cindy Jackson has taken her innate brilliance and raw courage and sculpted a Botticelli. She is magnificent.
Dr. Stephen Marquardt, Originator of the Golden Mask that mathematically quantifies beauty.
Since 1988 she has had just about every op going to transform herself from farm girl to blonde bombshell... Living doll Cindy boasts an IQ of 164 and Mensa membership to counter any bimbo image.
Paula Jones, Sunday Magazine
This is not a stereotypical ditzy blonde. She's incredibly bright and has been very calculating about making these changes to transform her life.
Leeza Gibbons, the Leeza Show
Frequently described as Barbie-made-flesh, it is a grave mistake to assume that she is in any way Barbie-brained. Unique in having lived with two faces, she is under no illusions as to which has given her most power. Any theory that personality can sometimes win the day is swept away as grown men literally dribble in her presence.
Janie Lawrence, Life
The result is stunning. Ms. Jackson looks 25 and only has to step outside her luxury Melbourne hotel to turn heads.
Veronica Matheson, Sunday Magazine (Australia)
During our interview that night I never felt so ugly in my entire life as I witnessed man after man coming up to Jackson and telling her that she was the most beautiful woman he ever saw. Not a single man even glanced at me as I was sitting at Jackson's side. It was a humbling experience for me to say the least. I saw a confidant Yuppie visibly shake as he gave her his card. I saw a cocky rapper bedecked with gold jewellery go completely gaga over her. It was then and there that I became a believer in Cindy Jackson.
Tanya Augsburg, PhD, Thesis on Body Modification
I'd do her.
She looked better at 35 than she did at 25, and better at 45 than she did at 35. Before I met Cindy Jackson, I would never have believed it possible for anyone to actually get younger looking by the decade.
Eileen Spence-Moncrieff, Goodlife Magazine
I first interviewed Cindy about seven years ago, just as her won remodelling programme was beginning to earn her a certain celebrity. Since then I have become older, fatter and balder. Cindy has been moving in the opposite direction. She is even more physically delicate and her face seems neater and prettier than before.
David Thomas, Sunday Telegraph
Hyperfeminized, hyperbuffed surfaces aside, it's Cindy's spirit that's lovable. Surgery hasn't obscured the bookish farm girl with wild dreams.
Pat Leeds Blashill, Details Magazine
Cindy had a lot of things stacked against her apart from her disadvantaged childhood... After years of watching silently from the sidelines, she was aware of the power of beauty. Like a modern day Eliza Doolittle, the unloved and unpopular Cindy deliberately turned herself into a beauty to live the life of her fantasies... The new Cindy lives a charmed life.
Jane Savva, Daily Record
I thought she was pretty before.
