A WOMAN who has spent £6,000 on THREE bum lifts has revealed how the multiple surgeries have left with a “drooping butt”.
Renee Donaldson, 24, thought she stumbled upon a bargain when she saw a Brazilian bum lift advertised on Instagram for £2,500.
The influencer flew out to the clinic in Istanbul, Turkey, to have the procedure which involves transferring excess fat into the buttocks in January 2019.
“I saw the clinic online and read some amazing reviews,” she said. “They had less than 1000 followers but I knew someone who had a [Brazilian bum lift] and breast augmentation so I had faith.”
The cosmetic surgery practice asked Renee to be an ambassador for them and offered 50 per cent off treatments in exchange for coverage.
As someone who works in social media, Renee says there’s “a lot of pressure around how you look” and admitted she was “lazy” and wanted a quick fix.
“I should have gone to the gym and put blood, sweat and tears into achieving the ‘perfect’ body but I chose the easy option which was to lie on a table and have surgery,” she said.
Although Renee was happy with her how her bum looked to begin with, six months later it seemed to have “drooped”.
“It looked like I had a big bum but no legs,” she added. “The clinic invited me back to match the ration and I paid more than the initial surgery but I didn’t care as I just wanted it fixed.”
However, this still didn’t fix the problem and Renee’s thigh appeared swollen – making her incredibly anxious when it came to uploading pictures of herself.
Opening up about her botched surgery online, Renee then shared a photo where you could see a huge lump of fat on her thigh.
As a result, Renee says the clinic offered to revise it for free – marking her third time under the knife.
She said: “They had got it wrong so many times and I said ‘please just get it right’.
“But when I took the dressing off, my thigh was bruised. I don’t know what they had done to my thigh and every time I ask, they ignore me.
“I have been to the doctors in the UK who think something has been put inside my thigh as it keeps swelling. I have to put all pressure onto my other leg.”
What’s more, Renee says she can’t even look at herself in the mirror and has cried herself to sleep to multiple occasions.
Ultimately, she doesn’t believe she would have ever have had a bum lift if she had a “normal” job and is urging others to do their research before having cosmetic procedures.
She said: “I was one of those girls who was always looking at other women’s body and wishing I could have it. Now, I barely go on my phone as it makes me depressed to compare what my body should have been.
“There is a lot of pressure to look a certain way to get the best paid collaborations online. It shouldn’t be that way – I don’t want any of my followers to think they are not good enough.
“However, I have gained more followers and opportunities since undergoing the knife. I won’t bash people that want to do it but make sure you’re spending more than £3500 on a BBL.”
Now, Renee is planning to have one final surgery to correct the damage.
“I’m tired of going to hospital, I’m tired of being on painkillers, I’m tired of feeling like this so let this be a wake up call for those that think BBL is an easy option.
“I will go away soon to one of the best surgeons in the world and I don’t care how much it will cost as my health is important.”
