“Human Barbie” Sarah Burge recently revealed that she has been having surgery since she was 7 years old and now at the age of 51 and over 100 plastic surgery procedures later, isn’t planning to stop.
51-year-old Sarah Burge has spent over $800,000 on surgical enhancements over twenty years, which include three facelifts, liposuction on seven different parts of her body, two nose jobs and breast augmentation.
Her first surgeries were reconstruction after an accident, but Sarah has continued to splurge on more cosmetic surgeries, not even minding the plastic surgery recovery, according to an interview with The Mirror UK:
” I can’t remember a time I didn’t want surgery. The first procedure I ever had was when I was seven years old. Born with what I considered to be a deformity – a sticking-out ear – I wanted to get rid of it, so I did. Twenty years later, I had my next procedure – liposuction under my jawline. I didn’t like my double chin so it had to go. Then something happened which would change my relationship with plastic surgery forever.”
“I was involved in an incident of domestic violence so severe that I was left with a broken cheekbone, jaw, eye socket and teeth. I was rushed to hospital to be patched up but when I eventually saw myself in a mirror I collapsed in shock.”
“My face was completely disfigured, I looked like a monster. I lived like that for six years and they were the worst six years of my life. The only thing that kept me going was my little girl Charlotte. Eventually, I decided to do something about it. I went to beauty school, then trained as a nurse before opening my own cosmetic surgery consultation service on Harley Street.”
“I visited the best plastic surgeons I could find and offered them a business proposition. If they could make me look the way I wanted to look then I would refer all my clients to them. They agreed and I haven’t paid a penny for my surgery since.”
“It took about 30 procedures, including cheek implants, work on my eye socket and a nose job to get my face how I wanted. After that I got a bit carried away. I would have surgery to maintain the results I’d already achieved to try out all the latest techniques and procedures.”
“It’s my job to recommend the best surgeons to people, so how can I if I haven’t tried them myself? I’ve lost track of the amount of work I’ve had done over the last 20 years but I know it’s more than 100 procedures, worth over ￡500,000.”
“I’ve never regretted any of the surgery, I’ve never been turned down by a surgeon because they know it would be bad for their business, and none of it has ever gone wrong. It hasn’t even been painful – except for when I had buttock implants and I couldn’t sit down for a week.”
“People say I’m a nutter and an addict all the time. They tell me to ‘focus on what’s inside’ but when they say that I think, ‘Hello!’ I know what it’s like to look ugly and I know what it’s like to be beautiful and I sure as hell know what the general public would choose if they were honest.”
“When I lost my face I didn’t feel good on the inside. I was miserable. As for being an addict I’m the first one to admit it’s true. I’m addicted to looking good. What’s wrong with that?”
“My most recent procedure was two weeks ago when I had a full face lift and full body liposculpture. It was an MOT for my 51st birthday worth ￡51,000. It was done under local anaesthetic so I could tell the surgeon what I wanted him to do.”
“I’m not squeamish and never get nervous because I know nothing will go wrong. I didn’t even need recovery time. I went straight out for lunch with the surgeon afterwards.
I’m not sure what I’ll have done next because I’ve not long been out of the operating theatre. But I know within a year I’ll start having withdrawal symptoms. Maybe I’ll have a neck lift. I can’t imagine never having surgery again.”
“People say, ‘Why can’t you just relax and stay as you are?’ and sometimes I feel like doing that. But at the end of the day, I’m proud of my body and I want to keep it looking like this. So when people ask if I’ll ever stop my answer is, ‘No, not until they hammer the last nail into my coffin.’”
Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Salzhauer says, “I believe 7 years old is still a bit young for plastic surgery, and I don’t think it was her early start that contributed to Sarah Burge’s plastic surgery addiction. Sarah was left severely disfigured after a brutal attack and had to have multiple surgeries to rebuild her face. This life altering event surly left emotional scars and probably was the driving force behind her continued plastic surgery addiction. Plastic surgery can really boost your self confidence and self esteem, but is no replacement for therapy after such a traumatic ordeal.”
Sarah seems happy now, but she may still want to consider some therapy after all she has survived.
