Andress Urach 27 who came second in Brazil’s BumBum beauty contest, and one of the most controversial TV presenters in Brazil, has revealed the shocking harm plastic surgery caused on her body.
Andressa Urach who spent a month in intensive care, was terrified she would lose her leg after fillers aet deep into her muslces and had to be removed, causing a life-threatening infection.
In a series of photos taken on her hospital bed, pictured the beauty who once claimed that she slept with footballer Cristiano Ronaldo, groaning in pain as she struggles for her life.
Miss Urach has reportedly undergone at least nine cosmetic procedures in the past five years including a nose job, a bioplasty facial ‘correction’, jaw reduction, breast enlargement, liposuction and even vaginal lip reduction.
She invested in her most priced possession, her butt which won her the runner-up title in the 2012 Miss BumBum contest.
According to Mail Online, she reportedly had injections of two filers, hydrogel and PMMA, to make it larger and more plump.
But in July, she began complaining of discomfort and had 400ml of hydrogel drained from each of her upper thighs.
She suffered from septic shock after wounds from a procedure last July became infected.
‘Now I’ve discovered that the PMMA is sticking to my muscles and causing the tissue to rot’, she said.
Despite the operation, the pain continued in November and was taken to the Conceicao Hospital in Porto Alegre with an advanced infection of her left leg.
According to report, she underwent two unsuccessful drainage procedures before suffering from septic shock and was moved to intensive care.
At one point, her life was in danger and it was claimed her leg could have had to be amputated.
But as luck would have it, she’s starting to recover and putting her leg on the floor.
The model wrote on December 26: ‘My loves, thank you for the affection and chains of prayers’
Adding she wrote; ‘My loves, thank you for the affection and chains of prayers. God is great and is taking care of me.’
Miss Urach hit headlines around the world after claiming she had had an affair with footballer Cristiano Ronaldo, a claim the Real Madrid striker denied.
She said the footballer slept with her in a hotel just 48 hours before a Champions League semi final which his team lost 4-1 to German side Borussia Dortmund.
The Portuguese winger, 29, took to his Facebook page to say he was ‘deeply outraged.’
Brazil overtook the U.S. in 2013 to become the most prolific plastic surgery nation in the world.
Almost 1.5million procedures were performed in the South American country – an increase of 600,000 in just two years.
These included 226,000 breast enlargements and 64,000 buttock augmentations, a fifth of all those in the world. Brazil has more than 5,000 plastic surgeons who also performed 78,000 facelifts, 77,000 nose jobs and 219 penis enlargements, according to the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons.
But the U.S. was still far ahead for the number of non-surgical procedures, such as laser hair removal and chemical peels, with 2.5million to Brazil’s 650,000.
