90 Day Fiance newbie Nikki Exotika has put a ton of effort and a lot of cash into her appearance.
The 47-year-old self-declared “Million Dollar Barbie” has undergone a bevy of surgeries and procedures to achieve her unique look.
As Monsters and Critics reported, the New Jersey native has transformed herself with the help of a team of professionals, including plastic surgeons, aestheticians, and others in the beauty industry.
Nikki has been open about the work she’s had done, including shaving her forehead/brow bone, an endoscopic brow lift, hair transplants over scars, a temporal lift for a “cat-eye” effect, several nose job revisions with rib grafts, cheek implants, buccal fat removal, veneers and dental crowns.
She’s also had braces, chin implants, jaw filing/chin recontour, lip lift, mid-face/neck lift, ear pinning, voice surgery and therapy, liposuction, a butt lift, silicone injections, eyebrow microblading, silicone removal, scar revisions, hair extensions, tanning, and makeup and lashes.
Nikki’s transformation journey began when she was still a teenager. Admittedly, it was her dream to look like Barbie, and she didn’t let childhood bullies deter her decision to chase her dreams.
After having a nose job at the age of 18, Nikkie was hooked. She continued her plastic surgery journey, which included transitioning from male to female.
