Ive spent £50k to become a Barbie – surgery nearly killed me but I wont stop
A woman who has spent £50,000 in her quest to 'become a Barbie doll' says she won't stop getting surgery – despite it nearly killing her.
Instagram model Nel Peralta says she's living her 'plastic dream' after getting lip fillers, facial fillers, Botox, boob jobs, a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) and three rounds of liposuction.
The 35-year-old has also had skin tightening on her neck, fat freezing, lymphatic drainage across the whole body and facials.

And she has no plans to stop soon.
Nel says her curves are part of her identity and have been since she started wearing a waist trainer at the age of 14. Her nan first introduced her to the device, which is supposed to create a smaller waist by cinching it in.
As she got older, Nel turned her turned to more permanent adjustments.
The influencer, from New York, US, told Truly: “As a teenager, my idea of beauty was looking like a Barbie.
“To achieve the goal that I wanted, I did a couple of procedures, a couple of surgeries.
“I was about 22-years-old when I got my first surgery.
“I was very excited, I was not scared at all.”
Her initial surgeon told Nel that she shouldn’t get her boobs too big on the first go because over time they will drop.
Her response was: “I don’t give a f**k.”
She later suffered a depressive episode, however, after a botched boob lift years after her first augmentation.
She explained: “In my late twenties, I noticed that they started dropping.
“I went to a doctor and he did a breast lift, but within days I started scarring so bad.
“It was so disgusting. That really lead me to depression… the hardest two years of my life.”
Infection in the wounds could have cost Nel her life, however she hasn't been put off surgery by the experience.
She hopes to have a fourth round of liposuction soon, as well as another BBL to further exaggerate her hourglass figure.
“I’ve been botched before but that is not going to stop me from getting plastic surgery," she said.
“I’m used to what people have to say.
“What is there not to love about plastic surgery?”
