She’s one of the most widely viewed and discussed women on the Internet but now the Ukranian model known as the “human Barbie” for her doll-like figure is speaking out to deny rumors of rampant plastic surgery and reveal her higher purpose in life.

“Some people even spread rumors about me and retouch my pictures to hurt me. But I don’t take them seriously,” Valeria Lukyanova tells V Magazine. “I’m even flattered! It’s what success is like. I’m happy I seem unreal to them, it means I’m doing a good job.”

Lukyanova, also an artist and singer, first made headlines in April when photos of her seemingly inhuman-like proportions were posted on websites like Jezebel.com and Huffington Post and quickly went viral. Commenters questioned whether Lukyanova was manufactured and, if she was real, how much plastic surgery she must have undergone to get her impossibly whittled waist, buxom chest and symmetrical features.

A spokesman for Lukyanova told ABC News the only plastic surgery she has had is a breast enhancement. The “human Barbie” herself told V Magazine she achieves her look with makeup.

“Many people say bad things about people who want to perfect themselves. It’s hard work, but they dismiss it as something done by surgeons or computer artists,” she tells V. “This is how they justify not wanting to strive for self-improvement. It’s how they explain their continued inaction. It’s just an excuse. There are plenty of video clips on the Internet showing what I really look like.”

Marilyn Ely Reid, 46, of Newmarket, was charged with criminal negligence causing bodily harm. She appeared in court Friday where she was freed on a $5,000 surety bond.



At a news conference earlier Friday, Det. Louise Farrugia said, “The patient cannot sit on her backside. She can barely walk.”

Police allege the woman received several injections in her buttocks from the accused in a home. The woman fell ill immediately and was taken to hospital on Aug. 29.

She was treated with antibiotics, but her condition worsened. Eventually, she needed surgery to remove the injected substance.

“It’s a procedure where people would want to enhance the shape of their buttocks. The victim was hoping that that would happen. It did not. She’s received debilitating injuries,” Farrugia said.



Police believe the accused advertised her plastic surgery services – including buttock, lip and muscle augmentations and Botox injections – on a website called pmmainjection.com.

A man whose numerous tattoos, piercings and other cosmetic surgeries earned him the world-record for body modifications died earlier this month under unclear circumstances.
Dennis Avner, known as “Cat Man” was found dead on Nov. 5 in his home of Tonopah, Nevada.
The 54-year-old former US Navy sonar technician, also known by his Native American name Stalking Cat, had become famous for transforming his face to resemble a tiger.
His cause of death has not been released, but it is believed he took his own life.
Shannon Larratt, who knew Stalking Cat, wrote in a blog post that Avner had tried to adopt the spiritual essence of the animal world. He had tried to transform “himself not just into a tiger, but a female tiger at that, blurring and exploring the gender line as much as the species line.”

“A wonderful and complex person, he was at times as troubled as he was remarkable, and he recently took his own life at the age of 54,” the piece read.

The “Believe” singer began posting anti-Trump tweets from her verified Twitter account on Monday when she discovered Trump’s brand was sold at Macy’s.

“I’ll NEVER GO TO MACY’S AGAIN!” Cher posted. “I didn’t know they sold Donald Trump’s Line! If they don’t care that they sell products from a LOUDMOUTH.”

Cher continued with several tweets against the businessman, including a crack about Trump’s hair, referring to it as “his rug.”

Trump fired back, making a comment about Cher’s surgical enhancements.

“Cher– I don’t wear a ‘rug’—it’s mine. And I promise not to talk about your massive plastic surgeries that didn’t work.”

Cher quickly responded, admitting her hair comment had been out of line.

“[To] set the record straight…I took a cheap shot at Trumps hair…I WAS WRONG!” Cher wrote.

Still, she wouldn’t be completely silenced adding: “I hope Macy’s dumps him!”

But Cher’s wish isn’t likely to come true. Macy’s CEO Terry Lundgren defended Trump in an email reply to a man petitioning to get Trump’s brand out of the store.

Lundgren explained: “Please understand and appreciate that Macy’s marketing and merchandising offerings are not representative of any political position. Ours is a free society compromised of a wide range of viewpoints.”

Garcia never made that second appointment as she bled to death from a puncture wound. The state medical board disciplined the surgeon, and now the nursing board is probing a nurse anesthetist at the troubled facility.

Garcia’s family sued the office that a friend recommended, and court documents contended she did not know the place only opened three months earlier, that one of her doctors was under investigation by the California Medical Board, that the facility failed to meet the state’s requirements for surgical centers that use general anesthesia, that it was not state-licensed, Medicare-certified or privately accredited.

Last year, the California Medical Board (CMA) placed Dr. Lawrence Hansen of Cypress on 35 months of probation because of Garcia’s death. The board found Hansen came out of retirement to perform vaginal surgery he had not done in five years, and that he failed to verify the center was accredited as required under state law. An 85-year-old at the time of the CMA enforcement, his inability to perform competently due to his advanced age was also cited.

Hansen first popped up on the Weekly’s radar in a report about the outpatient center’s medical director surrendering his license to practice. Dr. Mark A. Knight, who had taken over the Anaheim Hills practice from another doctor who had surrendered his license in 2010 amid accusations he botched surgeries and had sex with a tummy-tuck patient while her husband and children were in the waiting room.

Besides Knight and Hansen, several Hills Surgical doctors surrendered their licenses or were barred from practicing between 2009-2011 for a sexual assault, other botched surgeries, controlled substances being prescribed as painkillers, medications being illegally purchased and sold and procedures performed on patients who did not ask for them.

Now, the state nursing board is going after Gustavo Gutierrez, the nurse anesthetist who worked on Garcia and was part owner of Hills Surgical Institute. It was Gutierrez who hired Hansen to perform the procedures, according to the board, which accuses Gutierrez of gross negligence and incompetence, including leaving Garcia alone on the operating table for half an hour.

“Sure, there are those who probably can’t stand me,” the Daily Telegraph quoted her as saying.

“But I just say what I really think, I am always upfront and tell the truth, so I guess that does occasionally get me into a bit of trouble,” she added.

A Mei

It was reported that songstress A-Mei is planning to sue a plastic surgery hospital for using her image illegally to advertise their business. As reported on Asianpopshow website, a plastic surgery hospital in China recently posted on a picture of A-Mei at her recent concert on their Weibo page.

A promotional caption was also posted along with the illegally uploaded photo, stating, “A-Mei has become a synonym of fat. There are many girls like her who used to fit into S size but later have to switch to XL size….. We suggest that you consider Liposuction to lose weight, it is effective and fast.”
Upon finding out about the damaging promotional slogan and illegal usage of her picture, A-Mei’s manager responded, “The hospital’s marketing statement was slanderous and serious infringement. We will take legal action against the hospital.”

A-Mei has been subjected to a lot of mockery by her critics after she was seen looking plump during her performance at the grand finals of “The Voice of China”. Her dramatic weight gain became a major subject in various online forums, causing the hospital to use her disadvantage to their benefit.

Valeria Lukyanova - Ukranian Barbie

Valeria Lukyanova – Ukranian Barbie


With the help of plastic surgery and extreme styling, women are proudly transforming themselves into living dolls
Barbie’s body dimensions may be physically impossible for a human to achieve, but that isn’t stopping a growing number of women in the Ukraine from trying. After one Ukrainian woman gained international notoriety for her transformation into a “living doll,” at least two more have surfaced as devotees of the beauty trend, nicknamed the “Barbie flu.”

There are at least two other Ukranian women who are making the media rounds calling themselves living dolls. One of them, Olga Oleynik, who goes by Dominkia, is reportedly friends with Lukyanova (it’s a small living-dolls world, after all) and the pair appear together in interviews. Dominkia has had breast augmentation to complement her doll-like look that includes long hair, contact lenses, and heavy makeup. Unlike the other two, Anastasiya Shpagina, 19, who goes by Anime, claims she has not had plastic surgery, though she would like to one day. For now, her look is achieved only through styling and makeup as well as an extremely limited diet of just fruits and vegetables. Anime reportedly rises at 5 a.m. to complete her look — which includes fairy-like outfits, long purlish hair, and large raccoon-like eyes — before leaving for work.

The 69-year old comedian stars in Dustin Hoffman’s directional debut Quartet. The movie is set in a home for retired opera singers who hold an annual concert to celebrate Verdi’s birthday.

The award-winning star shared his opinions on what it’s like for actors ageing in Hollywood at a Quartet premiere which was held at the BFI London Film Festival on Monday.

“Ooh yes very, very much so, it’s very unfair,” Billy revealed to Cover Media when asked if it’s harder for women to age in the film industry. “I don’t know why they do it [use Botox] look at Maggie Smith. People go crazy for her so there’s no decent reason why not to use women in Hollywood as they age.
“If you’re sensible and mature then the type of beauty changes. If you like, [turn to plastic surgery] I’m all for it. Get yourself another nose. Not you!”

The Scottish star plays Wilf alongside British actress Maggie Smith who stars as Jean, and legendary actor Michael Gambon who portrays Cedric.
Billy joked about how different the experience of making Quartet was for him, as he was the youngest member of the lead cast. The comic star also revealed how his tastes have changed as he has aged.

“Yes I’m an opera fan, it took me by surprise but my wife forced me into it,” Billy laughed. “Ballet as well, that’s two of the biggest surprises in my life.”

Guangzhou City

A Chinese city is set to ban minors from having cosmetic surgery under draft rules aimed at tackling the country’s growing obsession with going under the knife, an official statement said.

The rules for Guangzhou city have been drawn up as concerns grow about the dangers of plastic surgery in a country where three million people have operations each year to change their appearances, according to state media.

If passed by local lawmakers later this year, the law will also require parents of minors to consent to any cosmetic surgery for medical reasons performed on their children, according to a statement on the city’s official website.

“If approved, the regulation will be the first rule that has addressed the issue of plastic surgery for under-18s in China,” medical lawyer Zhao Yin told the state-run China Daily newspaper on Wednesday, adding that she hoped the laws would be rolled out across the country.

The regulations for Guangzhou, which is the capital of Guangdong province in southern China, would come into force early next year.

Chinese youths are turning to plastic surgery as they become increasingly obsessed with beauty, experts claim.

“Cities nationwide have seen younger and younger people undergoing plastic surgery in recent years,” Yang Jianguang, a law professor at Sun Yatsen University in Guangzhou told the China Daily.

“In the pursuit of a fashionable or pretty look, these youngsters may make an ill-thought out decision to undergo a procedure that could harm their health.”

Concern about patient safety heightened with the death of aspiring pop singer Wang Bei during plastic surgery in 2010.

The Ministry of Health in August urged local health officials to tighten controls.

The most popular treatments include minor adjustments to the face, such as nasal enlargement and “double-eyelid” surgery, which makes the eyes look bigger or more “Western”.

Other procedures include liposuction, nose jobs and breast enhancement.
