A woman who has quadrupled the size of her lips has just undergone her twentieth lip injection – and insists she’ll keep going until hers are the biggest in the world.
Andrea Emilova Ivanova, from Sofia, Bulgaria, has spent thousands of pounds at aesthetic clinics injecting fillers into her pout.
Dubbed a real-life Barbie, the 22-year-old had her latest injection last Tuesday and shared a photo of herself with her 33,000 Instagram followers at the weekend to reveal her ever-growing pout.
Andrea, who began her transformation in 2018, forks out around £135 for each treatment, but admitted she has lost count of how much she has spent over the years.
The philosophy student added that while she probably has one of the biggest pouts in the world, she’ll continue to have more fillers until she’s satisfied with her lips.

‘I like my new lips a lot, it was hard to eat after the injection and two to three days after the procedure gets more difficult,’ she said.
‘I feel great to have even more but some doctors think it’s enough, though I still want them bigger. My doctor said he will do more injections for me but said I have to wait for at least two months.’
She went on: ‘There are no restrictions to what I can eat. I think my lips are lovely, I love them. I am not sure if they are the biggest lips in the world but they are one of the biggest, I think.’
Last year it was revealed Andrea had gone under the needle 15 times, tripling the size of her pout in a bid to be ‘more fashionable’.

Though doctors have advised the student to stop having filler, Andrea has insisted she still wants her lips bigger. She is pictured after her twentieth lip injection
She said at the time: ‘I have visited almost all clinics for aesthetic procedures in Sofia and I put in my lips almost all kinds of lips fillers.’
Andrea added that she receives dozens of comments from adoring fans complimenting the size of her lips and has even been proposed to online by admirers.
But not everyone is a fan of her oversized features, and the student has faced backlash from social media users as a result of her aesthetic procedures.
Andrea said: ‘I get thousands of compliments on my lips and on my outfit, and on my vision and style every day from people all over the world.
‘I have both positive and negative comments, but women write most of the negative comments.’

Despite that, Andrea refuses to care what people think of her lips, adding that only her opinion matters.
She said: ‘There are people who like me with bigger lips and there are people who like me with smaller lips but it doesn’t matter to me, because it’s important for me, how I like it. Other people’s opinion is irrelevant.
‘I can’t give any indication of how big is too big, or can lips be too big, because for each person, “big”, “bigger” and “too big” are different concepts.

‘I’m broadminded and I think people should be free to choose, which one is for them big, bigger or too big. There are no boundaries for me.’
Andrea said she had always wanted to have lip fillers but denies being addicted to them.
She claims to be unique and said she doesn’t copy any celebrity when it comes to her aesthetics.
When asked if she wants to have the biggest lips in the world, she said: ‘Yes, why not? In my country the big lips are fashionable and there are many girls with fillers in the lips too.’
