She has had more than 360 cosmetic procedures, including 18 boob jobs, 11 nose jobs, bum implants and having her ribs shaved down, totalling to a self-estimated £720,000.
Now Alicia Douvall has revealed she’s had so many botched surgeries that she is stuck in a vicious cycle of needing botox every six months to keep her face lifted.
The 41-year-old glamour model had previously vowed to never go under the knife again after the arrival of her youngest daughter Papaya in 2011.

However, she explained that Botox has now become a necessity otherwise she’s left dribbling after surgeons tore a muscle in her face during a facelift.
The mother-of-two told The Sun: ‘The surgery I’ve had — it doesn’t go away. You get problems and you have to keep fixing it.’
Alicia also revealed that she suffered a medical emergency in June last year when her left breast became inflamed as a result of having Allergan implants, which have been linked to cases of cancer.

Revealing one breast was red raw and double the size of the other, Alicia thought she was suffering with heat stroke but found herself unable to move, coming to the conclusion that she was dying and started saying goodbye to relatives.
The model revealed that she was later diagnosed with sepsis, a life-threatening reaction to an infection, while an MRI scan brought a lump to light, along with a swollen lymph node, which was caused by the Allergan implant due to its rough surface.
‘It was the final wake-up call to realising the stupid mistakes I’ve made in my past. It was a miracle that I’d lasted this long’, Alicia said.
Georgia, her eldest daughter, often looked after her mum following her procedures, and takes a strong anti-surgery stance.
The 26-year-old said: ‘I’d always tell my mum not to have any more surgery. She doesn’t need it.’
Alicia once sparked outrage when she said she wouldn’t mind if Georgia had plastic surgery too – but she has since changed her mind.

She backtracked on her comments during a 2018 appearance on This Morning, saying: ‘I was in a bad place back then’.
‘I was addicted to surgery but I would never want her to have it. She used to think it was normal but she realises it isn’t.
‘It made me uglier than I was before. She’s so different to me, she doesn’t even want to dye her hair.’
Alicia has had several dices with death as a result of her many surgeries.
Back in 2015, the television personality revealed her bottom implants had exploded inside her and that the leaking poisonous silicone was dripping into her bloodstream.
It was the disaster that drove Alicia to declare herself surgery-free – even though she was undecided about ditching the leaking silicone.

In an interview with Closer, the star said she was ‘scared they could kill her’ adding that she can no longer sit down for more than 20 minutes.’
She said: ‘My surgeon told me both of my buttock implants had totally ruptured. I had no idea they could explode.
‘I’m in pain the whole time. I know they need to be removed, but I’m worried the saggy skin will leave me looking deformed.’
