‘Human Ken Doll’ with North Carolina ties wants to be 100 percent plastic

A man who has had nearly 200 cosmetic procedures to look like a human Ken doll from Barbie has underwent surgery yet again.

“I still have a long way to go before I can say I’m 100 percent plastic, including abdominal implants and calf implants,” said Justin Jedlica, according to the Daily Mail.

Jedlica told the paper earlier this year he is so determined to be plastic that nothing will stop his goal.

Jedlica is a 34-year-old Slovak American businessperson and model. He’s from New York, but was raised in North Carolina, attending Apex High School in Wake County.

Earlier this year, he underwent a four-piece back enhancement surgery using implants. He said he wanted to have his “Julia Roberts” forehead veins removed. He reportedly risked blindness with the procedure.

Jedlica has reportedly spent more than $220,000 total on his procedures and has had nearly every part of his body worked on. He claims that plastic surgery is an extension of his creativity.

Jedlica isn’t the only person who wants to look like a human doll. Thirty-one-year-old flight attendant Rodrigo Alves and 20-year-old Brazilian model Celso Santebanes are also “human Ken dolls.”

The most well-known may be Valeria Lukyanova, a Ukrainian model who considers herself a “real-life Barbie doll.” She made headlines last year for believing she can live on air and light, as opposed to eating and drinking.
