Dress designer Herbert Chavez has undergone plastic surgery and skin whitening to look like his idol, Superman.

When he is not at work he spends his time dressed as the superhero on the streets of his hometown Calamba City, in the Philippines.

He says he is planning future operations to beef up his abdomen and make him taller.
