Yes, You Can Use Plastic Surgery to Turn Yourself Into Barbie

Despite what plastic surgery critics might think, most women who opt to go under the knife are NOT trying to mold themselves into a human Barbie.

Except this girl:

Though her proportions aren't quite as exaggerated as a real-life Barbie doll would be, 21-year-old Valeria Lukyanova from the Ukraine has come as close as we've ever seen. 

Valeria describes herself as "the most famous woman on the Russian-speaking Internet," and based on her photos, it's not hard to see why. While she's been accused of Photoshopping her images, we're fairly convinced her surreal appearance is the result of lots of doctor visits and heavy-handed makeup (plus some colored contacts). In addition to her exaggerated looks, Valeria seems to have perfected a doll-like stance and Barbietastic frozen-arm poses.

It's unclear exactly what procedures she's had (except the fairly obvious one), but Valeria's not the first person to use surgery in an attempt to look like a fictional character. Sarah Burge, Cindy Jackson, and Nicole Sanders have all used plastic surgery to get Barbie doll looks. Priscilla Caputo tried to emulate Jessica Rabbit, and most simliar to Valeria is Herbert Chavez, the man who altered himself to look like Superman


What do you think - has Valeria succeeded in becoming a real-life Barbie doll?

Wow! She does look alot like Barbie, she's definitely the closest to looking like the doll. I don't think she looks bad in her video, I think she looked great for not having any make-up on!!!! Good for her, if she wants to look like Barbie doll go for it, I think she's doing a pretty good job emulating the famous doll!!!!!

She's prettier without her barbie makeup (on the video link).    I don't know what I'd do if I ran into her in real life.  Especially if she still had her hands in the froze-arm pose.
