Paris Herms, known as the ‘Real Barbie of Berlin’, has gone under the knife to increase her cup size to an eye-popping 80L - weighing in at an enormous 2kg each.
She told Barcroft TV: “It’s been a dream of mine for a long time to bring my breasts up to two kilograms. When I woke up from the anaesthetic, I felt extremely happy.
“I felt super happy and was totally satisfied that it’s behind me and I’ve finally achieved what I wanted."
Regarding the mantle of having the biggest boobs in her native land, Paris said while it’s ‘very nice’, it wasn’t her primary goal.
“I like big breasts because they represent femininity, which I find great. I would have done the same even if they weren’t the biggest.
“I feel really happy with my body, just the way it is right now - the opposite of how I felt in the past,” she said.
While the 27-year-old Instagram star loved Barbies from playing with the dolls as a little girl, her cosmetic transformation began after she was bullied at school for being ‘ugly’.
Paris said: “I wasn’t originally very pretty and I used to be bullied a lot. I like to look like a doll because I would like to look faultless.”
But while she has gained thousands of fans online, her ‘plastic’ look has also attracted her critics.
She said: “Other people’s opinions on my looks vary. Some find my appearance good, some don’t - which is of course understandable, because everybody has a different ideal when it comes to beauty.
“Inspite of that, I have a lot of support. From my grandma, for instance, though she isn’t happy with my appearance.”
Paris’ grandma, Doris Lemke, with whom she lives in Berlin, cared for her granddaughter at home while she recovered from her most recent boob job - and many surgeries prior to it.
After Paris was bullied and left feeling deeply insecure, Doris agreed to pay for her first breast implants when she was just 18.
Paris said: “I was quite young back then and fortunately I had my grandma to support me financially, but now I co-operate with many companies, do modelling jobs, and TV and events appearances, and earn my own living.”
Since her first breast op, Paris has had a nose job, procedures and fillers to change the shape of her face, and her second and third breast ops - forking out more than £35,000 to achieve her pneumatic, doll-like appearance.
Her grandmother, Doris said: “I don’t agree with all the surgeries Paris has, but she expresses herself this way because she was bullied and now she wants to look different than she used to.”
Paris currently has over 200,000 Instagram followers, and frequently posts lingerie-clad snaps from photoshoots, often garnering thousands of likes on the social networking site.
As with many social media models, Paris said she receives some unsavoury requests from fans.
“I get numerous offers from men to meet me in exchange for money, sometimes very high amounts, but I reject them. I wouldn’t do such things,” she said.
While Paris says she will never say never to more surgery, she’s very content with her appearance for the time being.
She said: “I’m really happy that my dream came true and everything is going the way it is for me right now.
“I simply love to look completely artificial. My motto is ‘plastic is fantastic’.
