Plastic surgery has become so commonplace in today’s society that many procedures have become the norm. Be it a nose job, boob augmentation, a pop of botox or a slick of filler in the lips, we are starting to see the world of surgery transform before our very eyes.

Nips and tucks that were once exclusively performed on Z-list celebrities at a high price are now available to all at a fraction of the cost. As a result, thousands of people can now boast bulbous breasts, plump pouts, and a chiseled jawline. But that isn’t all that the image-conscious of this world are opting for…

Meet 56-year-old Eva Tiamat Medusa, formerly Richard Hernandez, or as she’s more commonly known, ‘Dragon Lady’. Eva, from Bruni, Texas, claims to be the “most modified transsexual in the world” having spent $60,000 on plastic surgery to transform her body into that of a dragon.

Eva’s unconventional decision to morph into a reptile came in 1997. Then a vice-president of one of America’s leading banks, Eva was living as Richard Hernandez. A proud gay man, Eva’s life was turned upside down after being diagnosed with HIV.

“Before my transformation I was vice president of one of the largest banks in the U.S. and I left when because I became HIV positive and feared I was going to die,” Eva explained, before adding: “My big thing though was I didn’t want to die in this world looking like a human.”
