Twenty-year-old Celso Santebanes has undergone four operations to alter his nose, chin, jaw and chest to become a “human puppet”. reported that last week, Mr Santebanes announced his next project would be to release a line of “Celso Dolls”.

The idea to change his appearance so drastically began after his family told him he had a physical resemblance to Ken.

“I never expected to have a toy myself,” he wrote on his Instagram page.

“I went to the city to become a model … I dreamt of being a human puppet, but having one in my image was completely unexpected.”

He also told a Brazilian newspaper that he plans to have more surgery and charge for VIP public appearances.

“I think I’m 90 per cent of what I want to be,” he said.

“I intend to do more surgeries, but do not know what. For now my investment is being in the gym, for Ken is strong and I am skinny.”
