Andressa Urach is her name, and she is Brazilian. The 27 year old is one of the most controversial TV presenters in Brazil, as the nation seems to have overtaken the U.S. to become the cosmetic surgery capital of the world. Her bottom came second in Brazil’s Miss BumBum beauty contest and it appeared that she got more than what she requested for as the plastic surgery wreaked a terrible harm on her body.
She was the same model who claimed to have had an affair with Cristiano Ronaldo, a claim the Real Madrid striker vehemently denied.
She spent a month in intensive care and feared she would lose her leg after fillers ‘rotted’ her muscles and had to be removed, triggering a life-threatening infection. The graphic photos below shows the extent of the damage.

‘Now I’ve discovered that the PMMA is sticking to my muscles and causing the tissue to rot.
After the operation, she continued to be in pain and in November she was taken to the Conceicao Hospital in Porto Alegre with an advanced infection of her left leg. She underwent two unsuccessful drainage procedures, according to reports, before suffering from septic shock and being moved to intensive care. At one point her life was in danger and it was claimed her leg could have had to be amputated.
Her mother Marisete De Favari logged in to her Twitter account, asking the model’s 220,000 followers to pray for her as she remained on the ward in a serious state.
‘I would ask for prayers from friends and people who wish for the recovery of my daughter,’ she wrote on December 10. ‘She’s starting to walk, put her foot down and sit. After all this time lying down, she expected it would be painful. She has been taking morphine since entering the hospital, but now they are taking the drugs away from her gradually.
Miss Urach, has reportedly undergone at least nine cosmetic procedures in the past five years.They were said to have included a nose job, a bioplasty facial ‘correction’, jaw reduction, breast enlargement, liposuction and even vaginal lip reduction.
For the Miss BumBum contest alone, She reportedly had injections of two filers, hydrogel and PMMA, to make it larger and more plump. But in July she began complaining of discomfort and had 400ml of hydrogel drained from each of her upper thighs. She told Brazil’s R7 website at the time: ‘The hydrogel was not absorbed by my body and started to harm me.
Brazil overtook the U.S. in 2013 to become the most prolific plastic surgery nation in the world. Almost 1.5million procedures were performed in the South American country – an increase of 600,000 in just two years. These included 226,000 breast enlargements and 64,000 buttock augmentations, a fifth of all those in the world. Brazil has more than 5,000 plastic surgeons who also performed 78,000 facelifts, 77,000 nose jobs and 219 penis enlargements, according to the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons.
But the U.S. was still far ahead for the number of non-surgical procedures, such as laser hair removal and chemical peels, with 2.5million to Brazil’s 650,000. Fellow Miss BumBum contestant Jessica Lopes, who shared a flat with Ms Urach, said last year: ‘Andressa and I would go to the plastic surgeon as if we were going shopping. ‘Sometimes we would agree to do some procedure together, we were not afraid. ‘We were slaves to beauty.’
