Reality star Anna Vakili has opened up about how she thought she was ‘going to die’ when she went abroad for a ‘cheap’ Brazilian bum lift operation that left her looking ‘like Frankenstein’.
The 31-year-old was hosting her and sister Mandi’s podcast, called Sisters in the City, when she opened up about the time they flew out to Turkey to get their ‘second’ BBL.
Mandi recalled: “We ended up like Frankenstein. The second time we went, we wanted a cheaper option so we went abroad. Do your research thoroughly – if it’s cheap, it’s cheap for a reason.”
Taking over, Anna Vakili continued: “The second time we did it, we went abroad to Turkey and me and Mandi thought we were going to die abroad. It was very scary.
“After our surgery, within a day or two, we were in a hotel room about to faint with blood all over the hotel room.
“It was like a murder scene, we both collapsed in a hotel room. Bandaged up, bleeding… It was like a horror movie.”
Explaining what the procedure entails, Vakili said: “A Brazilian butt lift [BBL] is a fat transfer where they take fat from other parts of your body and they put it into your bum.
“When we first did it, it was really good. We went to a really good place in London, a reputable surgeon, recovery… good. Minimal scars.
“I don’t regret that first one. It made me feel better, it made me feel more confident.”
She added: “We went too far when we did it again.”
The reality star went on to add that a BBL is a ‘complicated’ and ‘dangerous’ procedure.
