PIXEE FOX: I wanna create something unique, my version of a living cartoon. COMM: Model Pixee Fox has been modifying her body to look like a cartoon character and
she hit headlines last year when she had six ribs removed as part of her ongoing bid to
have the world’s smallest waist. SURGEON: Rib number three getting out. COMM: Now the 26-year-old is planning to have her eye colour changed by getting bright green
implants inserted. PIXEE FOX: Six billion people in the world, why should everyone look the same? Boring. COMM: The procedure is so rarely performed for cosmetic reasons, so she’s prepared
to travel all the way to India for surgery. But is India, ready for her? Man: How are you? PIXEE FOX: First time I heard about this surgery was about three years ago when I was like,
“This is a surgery I wanna do.” Actually, it’s something that I’ve been thinking
about since I was really young that I wanted to have another eye colour. Like somewhere
like really light blue-greenish. It’s always been like a colour that I’ve been like “wow”
when you see it. PIXEE FOX: I’ve got a pool, that’s almost the colour that my eyes is gonna be like a
mix between the grass and the pool. It’s gonna be amazing! COMM: There’s no time to sightseeing as Pixee heads straight to her consultation with
the eye surgeon. PIXEE FOX: Well, I don’t really care what other people think. Maybe it’s a little
weird, I like it, that’s all that matters. COMM: Dr. Suraj Munjal is one of the few surgeons in the world who is performing this eye colour
change surgery. DR. SURAJ MUNJAL: Including the cost of the implants, I would say this costs somewhere
around $5,000 to $6,000 for both the eyes. There are only two people in India who are
doing this eye colour change surgery, me and one is in South India. COMM: Pixee has been cleared for surgery, and as well as changing her eye colour, she
will also have laser treatment to correct her vision. PIXEE FOX: I’m super excited; I think everything is gonna go great. I’m gonna come out with
better vision than I had coming here so, that is also super awesome! PIXEE FOX: People are going to look at the picture and go like, “Oh my god, she is
crazy! She ‘s so stupid. Why is she doing that? Like she was so much better looking
before, why is she destroying herself?” I’m used to hearing that now. I’m excited,
I’m very excited. I’m like living in the moment so I don’t feel anything before it
really happens. DR. SURAJ MUNJAL: The main thing, which the risk is involved, is the increase in the intraocular
pressure, which can lead to a blurred vision. There are certain parameters, which we need
to take care of before going ahead with the surgery. But yeah if we plan it properly and
the candidate is fit, then it is okay. We have done around, I would say around 70-80 eyes and by the grace of god, all are doing fine. COMM: Pixee will remain awake throughout the operation to fit the implants. Which are made
by American firm Bright Ocular. DR. SURAJ MUNJAL: We make an incision in the eye, say around 2.8mm. Through that 2.8mm
incision these implants get folded in to the injector and then we inject it. It goes and
rests into the eye. We make sure that it is properly positioned and then we close it. Nurse: For one month do not put water inside the eyes, okay?
Pixee: Oh yeah. Nurse: And don’t touch the eyes, okay? No
eye makeup, no swimming. Pixee: I’m just going to try to… Pixee: I have two eye colours. PIXEE FOX: You can see the difference. The procedure itself, because you’re awake,
you don’t get any kind of medication. You’re just like clearly awake and you look up into
the lamp, try to focus and then you see people do stuff in your eyes. It’s something that
can be like freaking people out I think. Now I can open and I can start to see, not too
much, it’s really like greenish right now. I’m going to do this one today, so I’m
going to be blind on this one until tomorrow at least. The reason why I chose this colour
is because, because it looks really fake! Pixee: Hello! How is it going? Man: Hello, how, how is it? COMM: Before she can have the second surgery, the doctors need to check on the recovery
of the first eye. Pixee: I can’t see anything, I can’t even see like the screen right now. It’s just
white! I don’t see anything. Man: Nothing? No fingers?
Pixee: Because you’re holding them in front of the white screen I can see five fingers.
Man: Now? Pixee: Now I don’t even see your hand.
Man: Now? Pixee: I see two fingers in front of the screen.
Man: No problem, it will become normal day by day, okay? Today is the day, no?
Pixee: Yeah! COMM: Despite the blurriness, she is cleared for the second operation. PIXEE FOX: I’m excited about seeing both of the eyes, but I think it’s gonna take
at least 2-3 days before I can start to see sharp again, because right now everything
is really blurry on this side. It went a lot better this time, the surgery went really
easy. Pixee: No pain.
Nurse: No pain? Pixxe: Yeah. Pixee: Yeah, I see it.
Man: Happy now? Pixee: Yeah, I’m more than happy! I just
want it to heal. PIXEE FOX: So right now my eyes is still just passed four-five days since surgery. My eyes
is still trying to get used to the new implants, it’s gonna take maybe a month until I’m
fully recovered. I think it suits me, it’s an eye-catching colour, it’s really extreme.
It’s something that you can’t really have naturally. COMM: Finally, Pixee ventures out of the hotel to see more of Delhi. But ends up becoming
the main attraction. Man: No, nothing weird, it’s very attractive. And all the brothers are here just to look
at her. PIXEE FOX: Amazing, the people are so friendly and it’s such a nice country! Man: For a model like this to come here is a spectacle! She has no waist, so everyone
is gathered here to see her. PIXEE FOX: I think I would like when I came here, I think I would feel a bit more judged
over my appearance, but actually I don’t feel that way at all! Lady: She was very different from Indian ladies. She was different and unique. COMM: In her continuing quest for cartoon perfection, Pixee is already planning butt
and hip implants. She is also looking to shrink her waist even further! PIXEE FOX: I think my body needs some time to recover so right now I’m just gonna eat
and be happy and then I’ll get more serious about corset training. The record right now
is 15 inches and I wanna go down to 14. By the end of the year I’ll probably try and
go for the record. Now that I have got these amazing eyes, I want to fix my teeth too.
I want to put Veneers on so I get these really bright white teeth, so it’s gonna match
new eyes. PIXEE FOX: Okay, wish me luck to go home to Sweden!
