Valeria Lukyanova, the human Barbie doll, has been posting videos of herself to YouTube since November 2011, and received national attention when the website Jezebel published an article on her.
However, the human Barbie doll Valeria Lukyanova's strange appearance is so bizarre that people have questioned whether she really exists.
"It's unclear whether Lukyanova exists at all, or whether it's all a hoax thanks to the world of photo editing," ABC News concluded.
If she does exist, she likely achieved her human Barbie doll appearance through extensive plastic surgery, something Dr. Malcolm Roth, president of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, said should not be done.
"We believe evaluating any and all issues that may affect our patients' well-being, including psychological factors, is part of providing total patient care," he told ABC News. Additionally, Valeria is also only 21, so certain milestones in growth and physical maturity ought to be considered before plastic surgery is performed. ASPS cautions patients to keep in mind that plastic surgery is real surgery with real risks, just as with any operation, so the decision should not be taken lightly."
In her interview with V Magazine, human Barbie doll Valeria Lukyanova explains how she maintains her look and describes her daily life.
"In the morning I work on my face and I get a massage, then I spend some time on the Internet. I meditate and travel in my astral body, and after that I work out at the gym. I go for a walk with my best girlfriend, I get home, and I make dinner for the man I love. Then I spend some more time on the Internet, do some reading and meditating, and go to bed."
Human Barbie doll Valeria Lukyanova refers to herself as the "most famous woman of the Russian-speaking Internet," according to the Digital Journal. She has more than 460 videos on YouTube with 16 million views. Her Facebook page also has more than 500,000 fans.
