Alicia Douvall Plastic Surgery Before and After Nose Job and Facelift

Why did nobody stop me wasting £1m to be the world's most nipped and tucked woman? Alicia Douvall's 16 boob jobs, six nose jobs and 308 cosmetic treatments

But it has all come at a cost. Ms Douvall claims the work has turned her into an enhancement addict who has been treated in rehab on three occasions – and she has now turned on the plastic surgeons she says should never have encouraged her obsession with looking like Barbie.

Ms Douvall, who has been linked to a series of celebrities including actor Mickey Rourke and former Simply Red singer Mick Hucknall, said she had undergone so many potentially dangerous and painful operations and procedures – at one point at the rate of one a week – because she was  convinced she was ugly.

A grown woman saying her primary reason for wanting cosmetic surgery is to ‘look more like Barbie’ would be a cause for concern, even to those with no medical training.

Yet unscrupulous  surgeons agreed to operate on her  for just this bizarre reason not once, but more than 50 times.

She claims to have spent up to £1 million on these and other cosmetic procedures such as injections of Botox and fillers, telling surgeons she wanted to be ‘perfect’.

‘I often used that word,’ says the 34-year-old. ‘I took a Barbie doll to one medical consultation to show them exactly what I was after.

'I was unwell; addicted to surgery. But none of those doctors tried to stop me. I think they just wanted my money.’

Alicia is speaking candidly about her predicament as part of our Stop The Cosmetic Surgery Cowboys campaign.
We are calling for a raft of legislative changes to protect public safety, one of which is that patients must have a 30-minute consultation with their surgeon where they are properly assessed – physically and mentally – before being booked in for cosmetic surgery.

Consultant plastic surgeon Kevin Hancock, of the British Association of Aesthetic and Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS), says: ‘A sizeable minority of those seeking cosmetic surgery aren’t psychologically suitable for a life-changing procedure – particularly if they seem excessively concerned about an imagined defect, or worry their perceived flaw is unduly affecting other aspects of their life.

‘BAAPS surgeons regularly turn away one in five patients, in many cases for mental health reasons, but the sad reality is that, even when we urge them to seek support from a psychotherapist, they may simply continue to shop around until they find a less-conscientious provider who will treat them.’

The association is developing a standardised questionnaire that would flag up those at risk – a tool that could be adopted by all clinics.

Plastic surgery addict, Alicia Douvall, has recently claimed that she will no longer undergo plastic surgery after a painful botched butt augmentation.

“The 31-year-old reality TV star, who estimates she has splashed out a whopping £1million on cosmetic surgery, said her nightmare buttock op has put her off surgery for life.

The Love Island glamour girl said she was driven to spend so much on cosmetic surgery because she has a body dysmorphic disorder that left her with a distorted sense of self-image.

Alicia said she opted for bum implants in 2006 after losing weight left her unhappy with the way her rear looked.

She explained: “When I lost weight a few years ago, going down to a size six, my bum went too.

“So I had surgery to restore it to its former glory. It was very painful and I had to wear hideous support underwear for six months afterwards, but I was pleased with the results – I felt that it was £10,000 well spent.”

Initially Alicia was pleased with the results, especially the admiring glances when she paraded her new rump on the beach in some skimpy swimwear. The mum-of-one added: “Then I began to notice my bum was changing shape. The left implant had moved and had started touching a nerve – the pain was excruciating.”

Despite the pain she still wasn’t put off more operations having another boob job, cheek fillers and a toe shortening op.

But her bum op pain continued. She explained: “I can’t sleep on my back and I can’t go to the cinema because sitting still for two hours is agony.”

Alicia has promised her 15-year old daughter that she will never again have plastic surgery. Do you think that this self-proclaimed plastic surgery addict will be able to keep her promise? Only time will tell, but I bet that attention whore Alicia will start having plastic surgery as soon as people stop talking about her…
