After years of bullying, this man made a drastic physical change

Man Undergoes Plastic Surgery to Turn Himself Into Human Ken Doll

One British man underwent plastic surgery to overhaul his look and many are comparing the final result to a human Ken doll.

The reason for the transformation? The man explains: "I have had 31 surgeries not with the intention to look like a doll but to be a better person, gym and diet didn't work for me I was terribly bullied for the shape of my nose. Plastic surgery has changed my life and I am the happiest person on earth!"

This proves that bullying has a lasting legacy on individuals, their self-perception, confidence, esteem, and identity.
