Plastic surgery is a very risky business. When you decide to go under the knife purely for cosmetic purposes, there are plenty of things that can go wrong.

However, there are still many people who, despite knowing full well what the risks are, will choose to undergo plastic surgery in order to “perfect” their physical appearance.

The tricky thing is, when you undergo one procedure, it’s very easy to become hooked on it and opt for many, many more.

Some people go under the knife with the sole aim of replicating a public figure or cultural icon, and will spare no expenses in doing so.

Anella An is a 25-year-old architect and part-time model who claims to be Poland’s first “living Barbie doll” and has spent an eye-watering $40,000 on plastic surgery in order to attain the look.

The self-professed “First Polish Barbie” claims that her decision to undergo the procedures that would ultimately change her appearance irreversibly, was totally “spontaneous”.

According to Anella, she works as a full-time architect and she just sees her Instagram page as a hobby.

Unfortunately for her, many people have slated her on the internet, even going as far as to refer to her as a “monster”.

Anella, who is originally from Poznań in western Poland, stated that her main goal in life is to “maximize her likeness” to the popular plastic doll.
