Dead or Alive singer and tranny extraordinaire, Pete Burns, is suing his plastic surgeon for a reported £1m (around $2 million). Petey hired the surgeon to remove lip implants and the surgery didn’t go as planned. He’s now claiming that the messed up procedure has ruined his career and life.
He said, “It has taken away my life and my career. I saw doctors in London who said the only option was to amputate my lips. I was suicidal.
“Eventually I found a doctor in Italy who knew the product and said he could remove it. I had 17 months of procedures and now I am back again having more.”
He has had almost 100 procedures in Italy to correct the mess.
Petey claims that instead of removing the implants as he requested, the surgeon injected him with several fillers. His lips immediately began to swell and lumps surfaced. Instead of stopping the injections, the surgeon continued them.
Pete said, “What happened to me after a series of injections was far worse than any nightmare I could have envisaged. Not only was it agonisingly painful but it was physically repulsive in the extreme. It was impossible to lead any life whatsoever. I was unable to leave my house as I was so distorted with swelling.
“At times it leaves me seriously suicidal and depressed and I could have problems for the rest of my life.”
Oh and we’re talking about the lips on his face! And…SICK. See kids, plastic surgery KILLS faces! Now his plan to become Faye Dunnaway has been foiled! Damn those surgeons.
