Aussie 'Barbie' Tara Jayne reveals what she's spent on plastic surgery

A real-life Aussie ‘Barbie’ has revealed just how much she’s spent on her transformative procedures.

Tara Jayne was a cosmetic nurse before finding fame on social media and making international headlines thanks to her new look.

Five breast augmentations, six nose jobs and endless jabs of botox and filler are just the start, she says, with nothing going without a nip or tuck.

Doing the maths, Jayne has spent close to $200,000 on surgeries and alterations and, despite some negative feedback, is “proud” to be plastic.

“Plastic surgery gives me a sense of empowerment. 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,” the influencer said.

“Plastic surgery is how I do that and that’s what makes me happy.”

Maintaining her look doesn’t come cheap, with Jayne visiting the doctor “once every couple of months” for costly procedures where she can easily fork out between $2000 and $5000.

The hate’s making me more famous.

She admits “it’s a pretty expensive hobby”, one funded with “support” from sponsors and family.

But she’s quick to point out “I’m self-made, so I do it all myself”.

“It gives me the confidence to be the best version of myself and it’s all about feeling empowered as a woman,” she said.

“It’s so crucial in this day and age to be able to do that and show that. And that’s exactly why I do it and that’s how I express myself - through plastic surgery.”

The influencer said the reactions she encounters in her day-to-day life are mixed, but don’t expect that to get her down.

She said she’d endured bullying her entire life and had learnt to drown the negativity out.

“I’ve utilised (the bullying) as a driving force to basically become successful and just be the best version I can and it’s just pure irrelevance to be honest.”

That statement appears to be ringing true, with Jayne — who has 95,000 followers on Instagram — currently fielding offers from international television networks.

“(The notoriety) has created a lot of opportunities, particularly overseas, so a lot of famous TV shows have actually approached me,” she said.

“I’m not allowed to go into specifics because I am bound to contracts but you’ll be seeing a lot more of me, put it that way.”
