A model who has spent over $65,859 on plastic surgery to look like Barbie claims that she has a 'long line of men' wanting to date her thanks to her transformation.
Paulina J. Candy, 24, who lives in London, began to sculpt her body like Barbie while she was still a teenager, and had her first boob job at 18.
She has since had two more breast enhancements, increasing her boobs from a B-cup to a J-cup, bum implants, lip fillers, cheek fillers and a nose job.
The beauty therapist and published Playboy model has spent over £50,000 on surgery, which were encouraged and partly funded by previous boyfriends.
While she is happy being single at the moment, it hasn't stopped men from fighting over her. She says she has had men propose to her on their first date.
'Since I was a young girl, I've always dreamed to have a perfect body like a Barbie doll. I was born in a normal family,' Paulina said.
'When I was younger, MTV promoted playboy episodes for Girls Next Door and I fell in love with the whole Playboy lifestyle. The girls looked so beautiful and I would dream to be one of them.
'That gave me the inspiration to make a lot of changes to my body. After that, I decided to get bigger size boobs and lips as I see it as more sexual and seductive.
'I started to take care of myself when I was a child and when I was eighteen, I had my first surgery - a boob job and injections like lip fillers, cheek fillers, and smaller touch ups.
Paulina began training every day in the gym at age 20, and keeps her diet very strict, though she admits sometimes she has a cheat meal like sushi or pasta in a restaurant.
'I don't drink alcohol and keep my lifestyle very healthy; some people tell me that this is an obsession but as I said, this is my lifestyle.
'In my opinion, every woman needs to take care of herself, keep her body in good shape and maintain a positive mind, to feel more confident and sexy - for yourself, not anyone else.
While most of her surgeries have been self-funded, she has had relationships where the man would encourage her to increase the size of her boobs for the benefit of their sex life.
'I always have a problem with finding the right person in a relationship which is one bad thing about looking more sexual.
'People say that I look like a porn star, but I would like to be a porn star only for one person in my life.
'Many guys say that I look like a Nicolette Shea, and they dream to be with me. I have a long line of guys who want to date me but at the moment I'm single.
'My previous partners were also very happy about our sex life and encouraged me to go bigger and help me financially to get the bigger size.
Paulina, who is originally from Warsaw, Poland, says that the attention she has received from men has been very positive, but she also does get negative comments from women who she says are jealous.
'I receive a lot of attention from both genders; women are very jealous of my look and criticise me, many guys go crazy about me and even propose to me on the first day we meet or even online.
'My family and friends were so surprised when they saw me, and they asked me so many questions about this Barbie look I turned myself into.
'I was the same person before my surgeries, but my confidence has increased a lot and I feel much happier about myself.
'I am a very determined person and for me it is more important for me to achieve this look than any pain that comes with the procedures.
In 2014, Paulina increased the size of her boobs to a volume of 800cc, but says she needed to correct it with animal fat pads to give a smoother shape to her breasts implants.
In the same year, she decided to undergo a procedure that dissolves hyaluronic acid on the face and replaces it with natural fat from the tummy. And in 2015 she decided to add more volume to her boobs by fat transfer.
Last year she went under the knife again and decided to have buttocks implants and rhinoplasty in Colombia, as well as another boob job.
Though she said she is now very happy with her breasts, she is planning on having another nose job in the future.
'After every procedure I received many compliments and people saying that I am very beautiful and I don't need to change anything else,' she said.
'The worst comment which I received on a social media page was from a guy who said that he wished for me to get an infection and die.
'Some people use bad words but most of my fans are very kind and sweet and I really appreciate it.
Paulina acknowledges there is a risk of complications in the surgeries however, saying:' I always keep a positive mind and believe that everything will be okay and that I will achieve everything I want.'
In March 2019 she is going to have more surgeries such as another rhinoplasty to make her dream barbie nose and some other barbie touch ups.
'Everything you do, do it for yourself; stay focussed on what makes you happy and take care of yourself.'
