Ophelia explained that she adores Barbie for her “iconic” look and that her measures have nothing to do with being racist.

“I just think that Barbie is very iconic. I’m definitely not trying to be racist,” she told Barcroft TV. “There are dolls and Barbies, especially nowadays, of every height, skin color and ethnicity, but I’ve always just been drawn to more of the iconic Barbie look.”
“So that’s why I would like to look more Caucasian — to have more of the mainstream iconic look.”

She recently underwent blepharoplasty, or eyelid surgery, that cost $4,000.
“I’ve needed this surgery for six years and a lot of people have teased or bullied me about my eyes, so I’m hoping the surgery will give me more confidence.”

Despite these enhancements, Ophelia still wants to have implants for her breasts and buttocks and get her skin bleached. She also plans to have four to six of her ribs removed.
“I definitely want breast and butt implants. I want an actual rhinoplasty, skin bleaching, four to six ribs removed for a slimmer waistline, as well as BrightOcular, which permanently changes the color of your eyes by putting an implant in there.”

Ophelia, who claimed to struggle with anorexia in high school, said that regular Botox and lip injections help her gain self-esteem.
“I lack self-esteem and I think that’s also another reason why I try to look as much like a human doll as possible.”

Her boyfriend, Justin Sterling, thinks she doesn’t feel unique.
“I don’t feel that way about her. She is definitely unique. But I could see how maybe surgery gets addictive.”

There’s no word as to when Ophelia is undergoing all these other procedures, but for now, three months after her eyelid work, she says she’s much more confident.
“The surgery has definitely made me more confident in my appearance and I’m really happy with it.”
