Valeria Lukyanova has become an Internet sensation after being described as the world's most convincing real-life Barbie. However, what did the Ukrainian model look like before her transformation into a Barbie doll?

Despite claims that Lukyanova's Barbie looks are the result of excessive make-up, and digital photo editing technology, she insists that she has never gone under the knife and that her look is entirely her original self.

Photographs show Lukyanova with a seemingly impossible hour-glass figure; with a tiny waist, a large bottom, as well as ample bosoms. However, other photographs that Enstarz has now seen, show the model with minimum make-up and looking far more normal and far less plastic.


Dr. Athony LaBruna, the director of Manhattan Plastic Surgery, has weighed in on the debate. He has explained in detail as to what all needs to be done to transform a living human body to look like a plastic Barbie doll. He told ABC's Good Morning America earlier this week: "A women needs to get breast enhancements to be a 38DD and cut some ribs out to get an 18" waist, make the hips wider and change her face. Of course, the woman would have to go blonde like Barbie."

However, Dr. Malcolm Roth, president of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, has warned other aspiring young girls just how dangerous such surgeries can be. He told ABC News, "Valeria is 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."
