Jane Park describes having a Brazilian bum lift in Turkey

Britain’s youngest EuroMillions winner Jane Park claims that she ‘nearly died’ after undergoing a Brazilian bum lift operation.

The millionaire, from Edinburgh, travelled to Turkey last summer for the procedure but suffered a severe reaction to the anaesthetic, leaving her face and lips swollen. 

The 22-year-old, who won £1million on the EuroMillions when she was 17, has reportedly now spent about £50,000 of her winnings on cosmetic procedures.

Ms Park spoke about her own bum lift hell after a British mother-of-three died after undergoing the same procedure in Turkey.

Leah Cambridge, 29, suffered three heart attacks at the Elite Aftercare clinic in Ismir, Turkey, where several reality stars have also undergone the surgery.

Speaking on This Morning, Ms Park revealed that she underwent a bum lift in June 2017, but was left ‘swollen from head to toe’ and in ‘constant pain’.

‘It was horrible,’ she said. ‘I couldn’t even open my eyes. It makes me sick thinking about it.

‘When I woke up I was very cold and sore and I was told “you’ll come round a bit” and when I did I got up to go to the toilet and I was truly swollen from head to toe.

‘I thought I was going to die. I didn’t know what was wrong with me and they said I’d had a reaction to the local anaesthetic. 

‘The aftercare wasn’t good at all. I was crying and in pain. I was just told “you’ve paid for having this done”.’

A Brazilian bum lift uses fat transferred from other areas of the body, such as the love handles, hips or stomach, to provide patients with a fuller derriere.

Clinics report the procedure, which costs between £6,500 and £10,000, has seen more than a 50 per cent increase compared to five years ago.

She added: ‘I saw loads of celebs, from The Only Way Is Essex and things, on social media and it just seemed like an easier route to lose weight

‘In the procedure they take fat from unwanted places and put into your bottom and the thought of getting a bigger bum and taking that fat was great.

‘For a couple of months I looked at clinics and I researched the celebrities who had it done and they said it was fine and all good. 

WHAT IS A BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT? 

A Brazilian Butt Lift uses fat transferred from other areas of the body, such as the love handles, hips or stomach, to provide patients with a fuller derriere.  

Clinics report the procedure, which costs between £6,500 and £10,000, has seen more than a 50 per cent increase compared to five years ago. 

The procedure’s nickname was coined in 1996 after Dr Leonard Grossman was filmed performing fat transfer surgery on a patient from Brazil. 

The surgery takes anywhere from one to two hours to perform. The amount of downtime ranges from one to three weeks, plastic surgeons claim.

HOW IT WORKS:  

1. Liposuction to remove fat from abdomen/hips/thighs

2. Fat is ‘processed’

3. Fat is injected into buttocks

BBL STYLES:

  • Upside-down heart, or ‘A-shape’: Much smaller waist and larger buttocks towards the bottom
  • Round: emphasis on increasing the size of the butt, not pulling in the waist or thighs 

HOW TO PREPARE:

  • Don’t smoke (increases infection risk and blood clot risk)
  • Don’t gain weight (when you lose it again, your butt will change) 

RISK OF DEATH:

Higher than most operations – 20 in 100,000 compared with 1 in 100,000.

There are two major risk factors that can make a BBL fatal:

  • Blood clots travel to lungs
  • Accidental injection of fat to blood vessel 

RECOVERY:

1. Don’t work for 10 days

2. Don’t sit for 6 weeks

3. Sleep on stomach

4. Final shape will take months or a year to form

‘I know that when you go under general anaesthetic there’s a chance of things going wrong but I was of the impression that I was being closely monitored.’

Asked if she would undergo the treatment again, she said: ‘Don’t do it. People need to fully research it.

‘Message someone who’s had it done to find out their experience. If I knew what was going to happen, I would have never have done it.’

Leah Cambridge was having a ‘Brazilian buttock lift’ to give her an improved ‘hourglass figure’ when she suffered unexpected complications.

Her fiance Scott Franks, 31, said he was a ‘broken man’ after losing his partner of ten years, but had spoken out to warn people considering the treatment.

The procedure, costing £5,000, was carried out at the Elite Aftercare private hospital in Izmir, Turkey, a few days ago.

It involved transferring excess fat from the patient’s stomach to her bottom, to improve its shape.

Mr Franks, a scaffolding manager, of Leeds, said: ‘Leah was paranoid that she had excess weight from having three kids round her stomach.

‘I told her she was beautiful how she was but she really wanted it for her own confidence. I didn’t think this would ever happen or could happen to her.’

Elite Aftercare boasts that Lauren Goodger and Amber Turner, stars of popular ITV2 series The Only Way is Essex, have had cosmetic surgery there.

Celebrity Big Brother contestant Chloe Khan is said to have had a ‘Brazilian butt lift’ at the clinic as well.

Clinic surgeon Dr Ali Uckan was caught on camera saying ‘every time’ he makes the implant as large as possible, when asked a question over size by a patient.

He also said there are huge risks involved – and that a mistake is ‘life or death’.

In a new documentary series made by Cherry Healey, the surgeon said: ‘I average two patients a day. The United Kingdom love BBL.

‘In every surgery you have risks, like imbalance, bleeding, infection or clot. But if you just hit somewhere wrong and just rupture the internal organ…’

Asked whether the operation was a matter of ‘life and death’ he said ‘yes’. 

Jane became a millionaire after getting lucky with her first-ever ticket in 2013.

She has regularly complained winning the Euromillions prize ruined her life and even threatened to sue lottery operators Camelot for negligence, claiming someone her age shouldn’t have been allowed to win.

Earlier this month she confessed that it was only the advice of family members which stopped her going bust after she went on a spending spree.
