We’ve reported on the “human Barbie” – now meet her plastic fantastic counterpart – the living ‘Ken’.
Justin Jedlica has spent more than $100,000 (£61,000) on cosmetic procedures, and he says he’s not done yet.
The 32-year-old appeared on The Doctors (a talk show which modestly proclaims itself to feature "America's medical dream team) to discuss about his "chiselled" appearance.

As well as numerous procedures on his face (starting with a nose job at the age of 18), he has had buttock, pectoral and bicep implants too.
He said: “I’ve always been into plastic surgery, just as an extension of me being creative. To an extent I treat myself as my own sculpture, my own art work.”
When asked if he had any concerns about his frequency under the surgeon’s knife, he replied: “There is always the potential for things to go wrong but those risks are nominal and I'm wiling to accept those risks. I don't think anything worthwhile in life comes without taking a risk.
“I don't see a reason for stopping, it's like asking Picasso not to paint.”

Jedlica’s appearance comes as a further human Barbie duo gather steam.
The pair host spirituality lectures and with Lukyanova imparting such sage advice as “Many people think you need only good looks to be successful, but it’s not true – only spiritual work can bear tangible results.”
On paper it would seem like Jedlica and Lukyanova were a match made in heaven.
But don’t go buying that hat just yet… it seems Jedlica is less than convinced by Lukyanova’s dedication to the cause.

He exclusively told the Huffington Post: “I do fine her beautiful…but it appears to me hat much of her look is added makeup, fake hair and 'slimming' corsets ... Drag queens have put on the same illusions with makeup and costumes for years."
He continued: "A true 'body mod' individual -- such as myself -- LIVES with a conviction to their alternations and doesn't wash them off.
"I can appreciate that she is a talented artist, but if at the end of the day she is only presenting this 'human Barbie doll' on days the camera is filming ... I'm not sure just how much credibility I would give her in being a REAL human Barbie.”
