I believe we all have a dream look that we drool upon and secretly aspire to achieve that. How badly do you want that? Like, actually? Will you go through all the trouble and painstaking process to achieve this superficial beauty? This woman apparently had a childhood wish to be “looking like Barbie” and she went through 15 surgeries to get what she wanted. The 21 years old went through 15 surgeries to be “looking like Barbie” in a single year. Yes, that’s her level of determination.

The Bulgarian woman is a 3rd-year student named Andrea Ivanova. She always had the dream of looking like Barbie and finally achieved it last year going through 15 surgeries. Whether she looks like Barbie or not that’s for you to decide. What I can’t fathom is her determination.
One important part of her “Barbie” like face that has attracted many criticisms is her lips. She takes injections of hyaluronic acid whenever her lips deflate. Yes, you read that right. In an interview, she said that she is happy with the end result. Ok, good for her.
To quote Andrea, ‘Maybe over 15 procedures I’ve done since [early 2018]. I have not counted them, they may be more. At least once a month I went. I wanted to have exactly such lips as the pictures.’
She loved Barbie as a kid and always wanted to be looking like one. Hence, this extreme transformation. She is a living example of what happens when you blindly follow negative beauty standards.
Defending her 15 surgeries & “looking like Barbie” idea she said, ‘Everyone has the right to live and look as they want, it is not necessary for everyone to fit a standard imposed by other people. It is a personal choice and I have never been afraid to express it!’
Her transformation after the 15 surgeries has made people leave really mean comments on her images. People went on to calling her daffy duck. Some men have also offered her money in return for sexual favors.
It’s absolutely her choice and it’s her decision to go through 15 surgeries. We are no one to shame her and the faster we learn this better.
