Plastic-surgery addict gets 125 operations to resemble Human Ken Doll

Justin Jedlica, who has been dubbed the "Human Ken Doll," said his plastic-surgery addiction is a creative outlet for his aesthetic vision.

Jedlica, 32, was profiled on the TLC show, "My Strange Addiction: I'm a Living Doll," where he discussed his shocking plastic-surgery makeover.

“I’ve had 125 procedures and spent $158,000 to make me really resemble a doll,” said Justin. “My chest was first, then I moved on to bicep implants and tricep implants. I got a brow shave, brow lift and I started having more nose revisions. They all get a little fuzzy after a while, but I’ve had five nose jobs now.”

Plastic-surgery addiction is rooted in poor body image and negative self esteem, according to the book Surgery Junkies.

Jedlica said he thinks the Ken and Barbie dolls' flawless (albeit unrealistic) facial features and bodies represent the aesthetic ideals of masculine and feminine beauty.

“I think dolls are typically thought of as the ideal of what a man or woman should be, look like, live like,” said Jedlica.

Valeria Lukyanova, a Ukrainian model, has also made headlines for her uncanny resemblance to the Barbie doll.

Valeria, 28, said she has only gotten one plastic surgery: breast implants, and the rest of her look is due to blue contacts and artful makeup.

Justin has always aspired to look and be rich and famous. Jedlica underwent his first plastic surgery at age 17, and has continued getting major procedures and minor tweaks done to his face and body since then.

Jedlica will continue to get plastic surgeries as he feels are needed, but for now, he thinks he embodies what he has always aspired to be.

“To be someone who has the complete package that you would think a doll would carry .... I’m happy to say, I think I’m that," he said.
