23 year old Andrea Ivanova has always wanted to look like Barbie since she was a girl.
Andrea, who is studying German philosophy at Sofia University has transformed into a real-life pouting Barbie doll after undergoing “over 15 procedures”.
Andrea Ivanova from the city of Burgas on Bulgaria’s Black Sea coast has gone through a complete “metamorphosis” in a year.
The student, whose Facebook profile has a Barbie cover photo and now lives in the western Bulgarian capital Sofia, has always wanted to look like Barbie since she was a girl and she started her transformation last year.
“Since I was little, I loved Barbie and dreamed about looking like her one day.”
She reportedly injects hyaluronic acid in her lips and ‘refills’ them every time they start to reduce in size.
“I did maybe over 15 procedures since then . I didn’t count them, maybe there are more.”
However, cruel trolls say she looks more like “Daffy Ducky” and the “Loch Ness Monster” than Barbie.
After her photos made the news, Ivanova decided to respond to her critics.
“Everyone has the right to live and look as they want, it is not necessary for everyone to fit to a standard imposed by other people.
“It is a personal choice and I have never been afraid to express it!”
She told the Daily Star: “I really like more voluminous and big lips and I really wanted to see how they will look on my face, and get I like it much more with much bigger lips.
“I have 25 injections of hyaluronic acid in my lips at the moment, I have not calculated how much money I have spent in total, an injection of hyaluronic acid here in Bulgaria costs 400 leva (about 200 pounds per 1 injection).”
To get 25 injections, the lip filler addict spends around £5,000.
