Ever wondered what a human would look like after going through over 100 cosmetic surgery treatments? Meet Justin Jedlica, an American entrepreneur who was dubbed the "Human Ken Doll" after he spent $170,000 on 149 cosmetic procedures.

Is Jedlica happy with the way he looks? Yes, and he's pretty chuffed with the Ken reference.

In a recent interview with The Daily Beast, Jedlica speaks about dealing with the new nickname he was given after an appearance on ABC's 20/20 news show.

"I don't even know if I look like a Ken Doll, but if other people want to say I do, it's flattering," he tells the site. "As a kid, you play with Ken dolls and kind of assume that is what a handsome guy is supposed to look like."

It's no surprise to hear Jedlica's fascination with plastic surgery started when he was just a kid.

Three days after he turned 18, he got his first nose job "​which is something I wanted from a really young age," he explains to The Daily Beast.

"For me, that was something I needed to fix. It was something that was bad on my face. I saved my money - my first nose job was $3,500," he says.

Fast forward to 2014 and Jedlica's new look has become a "full time job."

"I've had 149 cosmetic procedures - which is different than surgeries," he reveals. "I've probably had 19 actual full-on surgeries; even in those 19 surgeries I've had some combos where there have been several areas worked on."

As for what he wants to do now, don't be surprised if the Human Ken Doll reality show appears on TV screens soon...

"My main goal, really, is that I'd like to be in the entertainment field. I like the attention," Jedlica admits to the site.

Just don't mention the Human Barbie. When asked about meeting Valeria Lukyanova, Jedlica's initial response was "she's interesting."

"How she became famous is all a complete lie and no one seems to realise it," he says. "And not that it matters, but everybody keeps putting her back in the headlines."

It sounds like Jedlica is doing a fine job of making his own headlines for now.
