Now Alicia, who has spent more than £1million on more than 100 cosmetic procedures — and almost died several times from surgical complications — admits she was emailing cosmetic surgeons abroad from her maternity ward.
However, this time it was for corrective surgery to fix dodgy facial implants she had done before she realized she was pregnant which had disfigured her face and left her unable to smile.
We have discussed Alicia Douvall here before. When someone says she nearly died from cosmetic surgery complications, it gets me thinking:
(1) She seeks extremes in surgical talent, goals or both.
(2) She is at least a bit dramatic.
As I have been in practice for about 15 years and have never seen a patient in a life or death position due to properly-performed cosmetic work, I can’t help but wondering if these stories are just the machinations of an overactive mind.
On the issue of dodgy facial implants, she probably went too large. Whether she demanded the implant size involved we will probably never know. She will likely blame her surgeon.
