Twins Spend £15K On Plastic Surgery Procedures To Look Exactly The Same, Dad Isn't Impressed

What happens when you get twins who both want plastic surgery?

Identical procedures, that's what.

Emma and Sara Koponen have each had three boobs jobs taking them from A to E cups and supersize their lips with regular filler injections.

And the obsessive pair spend every day at the gym together so their bodies stay the same shape.

They even eat the same food at the same time to stay the same weight.

The identical twins, originally from Sweden, moved to the glamour-obsessed world of Marbella, Spain in pursuit of artificial perfection.

Sara said: “As twins we have to look the same, people expect have expected that from us since we were children.

“We are both addicted with modifying our bodies - but we have to make sure we both do the same things otherwise we won’t match. We are obsessed with surgery and the pursuit of perfection - for us there’s no such thing as too much.”

The twins, who are both single, are planning on more surgery including butt implants, dental veneers and rhinoplasty.

Growing up in Vastervik, Sweden, the girls were studious and more interested in sports than boys.

Emma said: “We were always skinny and boyish with small boobs. We were shy and preferred playing basketball to chasing after boys.

“From a young age we dreamed about changing our appearance."

At age 16 the sisters moved to a larger town and began thinking seriously about enhancing their bodies.

Sara said: “There was one girl in our class who had big boobs and we fixated on her - we were so jealous. We were so self-conscious about our boobs we grew our hair long to cover our chests."

In 2009, aged 19, the pair took out a bank loan to pay for matching boob jobs, boosting their chests from an A to a C.

Sara said: “Our first boob jobs cost £3,000 each. Emma went first and was there waiting for me when I woke up from surgery.

“We immediately felt better about our bodies - and we got a lot of attention. Dad told us he was disappointed in us, but our mum approved and our friends were jealous.”

But just a year later the desire to go up a size proved too strong and the twins decided to go under the knife again.

Sara said: “We really wanted to go bigger, to have super-sized boobs. Our surgeon recommended we go to a D cup, which we did.”

However, after spending £3,500 to go up one size, twelve months later, at age 21, they opted to go bigger again for an additional £3,000.

Sara said: “We went back to the surgeon and said we still didn’t feel big enough. He told us he could take us to an E-cup - but no bigger."

Now the sisters feel happy with their dramatically enhanced curves - however, some people find their appearance too much to handle.

Emma said: “Not everyone likes the look we are going for - our dad and our grandmother really don’t like it. Our father is not proud of us at all - he hates our big boobs and our tattoos. Some girls have called us names like ‘whore’ to our faces, but I think they are just jealous of the attention we get."

In 2011 the girls moved to Spain’s Costa del Sol looking for adventure and they hit the party scene.

And it wasn’t long before they were hitting the cosmetic surgery clinic again.

Sara said: “We love our boobs but we know there’s other parts of our body where we can make adjustments.

"We had lip fillers because we had small lips and we wanted to get a more fake look. The work we have done is for us - it’s not about getting men to like us, it’s about becoming our idea of perfection."

However, Sara believes she will never be 100 per cent happy with her body - or being compared to Emma.

She said: "Sometimes people compare us which can be hard to hear. They might say ‘Emma is a bit slimmer, or she’s better’.

“There’s always a bit of competition between us - you always want to be the one looking the best.”

To keep in shape the sisters hit the gym every day for a gruelling workout.

Emma said: “Every day we hit the gym for two hours. We make sure we do the same exercises on the same machines to get the same body shape.

“We also have a strict diet and we measure food out equally so neither one puts on more weight than the other.

"If one of us wants to eat ice cream and the other wants chocolate, we fight over which to buy as we can't eat different things.”

As well as living together, the sisters share a phone, a wardrobe and spend all day together.

Emma said: “We always try to be similar, we have same diet, we train together, we have the same friends and go to the same place - we do everything together.

“Sometimes it feels as though we are one person. If Sara is sad, I will feel it too."

But despite the unnatural closeness, the twins have never shared a boyfriend.

Sara said: “Some people see our appearance and make assumptions about the kind of people we are, but often they are wrong.

“We have lots of plans for future surgery - our goal is to look as artificial as a doll by the time we are finished. It’s very important for us to make our dreams come true and we have many things we want to do with our body to change it."

However, Sara said although she and Emma love their looks, she would never allow a child to follow in her footsteps.

She said: "I’m proud about how I chose to change my body but I would never let my own child do this to herself. You will never be happier - that’s the point. You will always want more. If you start, you will never stop."
