WEST HOLLYWOOD—Tobias Strebel, 35, known for undergoing multiple plastic surgery procedures to make himself a replica of pop star Justin Bieber is missing.
It was reported that Strebel was last seen on Tuesday, August 18 on the 1700 block of North Orange Grove Avenue in West Hollywood.
Strebel reportedly had spent over $100,000 on facial reconstructive surgeries in order to achieve his goal of looking like Justin Bieber. His claim to fame is his appearance on the television show “Botched.” “Botched” is a reality series that is designated to helping those who have undergone plastic surgery catastrophes. E! News reported that Strebel went by the name Toby Sheldon while on the show. The show’s co-hosts are notable plastic surgeons Dr. Terry Dubrow, based in Newport Beach, and Dr. Paul Nassif, based in Beverly Hills.
Dubrow appeared on another television show that dealt with plastic surgery called “The Swan,” although the premise was different. Instead of fixing previous plastic surgery mistakes, he attempted to change which physical features the show’s contestants did not like about themselves.
“Botched” premiered on June 24, 2014. The show is currently signed for a third season. The series does, however, turn away individuals who are addicted to plastic surgery.
Authorities are not considering Strebel’s case to be critical becuase he is neither a child nor does he suffer from any medical conditions.
The Los Angeles Police Department is asking anyone with information regarding the case to please contact them at (213) 972-2976.
