In Brazil, a model has invested more than 50 million dollars in plastic surgery to look like Barbie's famous boyfriend, Ken.
Apparently, it has become popular to undergo aesthetic surgeries to have the image of the 2 most famous Mattel dolls.
To look like a Ken, Celso Santebanes has had to undergo the following surgeries:
• A chin operation.
• A nose operation.
• Four jaw operations.
• To put silicone breast implants.
Celso began his surgeries at the age of 16, as his family said he looked very similar to Ken. The comments of his relatives were the spark that moved this young man to do such a radical transformation. Now, he considers himself a doll of flesh and bone.
The young man shares to the Brazilian television that he feels overwhelmed by the people of his country and that he has changed his life completely. The young man says he has become addicted to looking in mirrors.
Unfortunately, shortly after the surgeries, Celso was diagnosed with leukemia, which caused that his body rejected the biopolymers that had been supplied.
After a short 5-month fight against the disease, Celso Santebanes died in a clinic in Brazil. Apparently, his vain search for the perfection and beauty cost him too expensive, because the young man didn`t have enough time to enjoy it since he died being 20-year-old only.
