She has had more than 330 cosmetic procedures and operations – far outstripping American Cindy Jackson, usually credited with being the world’s most surgically-enhanced woman.
Former English glamour model Alicia Douvall – best known for her kiss-and-tell affairs with celebrities including music mogul Simon Cowell – claims to have spent more than £1 million on boob jobs, facelifts and even toe shortening operations.
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.’
Since her first breast augmentation when she was just 17 – and she has had 16 such operations – the former model and mother of two has undergone six nose jobs, 11 operations on the skin around her eyes, surgery on her cheeks to add and then remove implants, and a facelift.
She has also had a rib shortened to give her a slimmer silhouette, her toes shortened ‘so they looked better in heels’, a tummy tuck, bottom implants and chin implants which were later removed.
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.
