Miss *** *** contestant Andressa Urach speaks out against plastic surgery after procedure left her with a rotting leg Plastic surgery made Andressa Urach famous. But it also nearly killed the Brazilian "Miss *** Bum" runner-up.

Once nicknamed "Beanpole" for her lack of curves, the mother-of-one became a reality TV bombshell in Brazil with the help of silicone implants, anabolic steroids, a nose job, and gel and botox injections.

The 27-year-old, who is also known for claiming to have slept with footballer Cristiano Ronaldo while he was with Irina Shayk, became an outspoken advocate of plastic surgery.

It has cost her more than money.

In November, Urach went into septic shock and was placed on life support after a botched operation to pump up her posterior even more.

She was given a 200 times higher dose of the silicone gel Hydrogel than the government allows..

She was in intensive care for a month, with concerns that her rotting leg would have to be amputated.

Of her wounded leg, which was still seeping blood through her skirt during the interview, she said: "I hope that these wounds at least serve as a warning to other women."

With about 1.5 million procedures performed each year, Brazil has the highest rate of cosmetic surgery of any country in the world.

About a fifth of the world's buttock augmentations are also performed there.

And although Brazil has around 5,500 certified plastic surgeons, an additional 12,000 doctors without specialised training are performing cosmetic procedures, according to the country's Federal Council of Medicine.

"Plastic surgery is so tied to this dream of becoming somebody," Alvaro Jarrin, a Brazilian professor who has researched the country's plastic surgery surge, told AP. "For the growing middle class with more purchasing power, plastic surgery is a means for upward mobility."...
