California-based Reality Star spent $50k to look like Marilyn Monroe and says ‘Pain is beauty’

Recently a woman revealed that she spent almost fifty thousand dollars on different surgeries to look like Marilyn Monroe in the last six years.

The New York Post reported that the 23-year-old Barbie Girl Serena Smith had undergone multiple surgical procedures since she was a teenager.

‘Reality TV star and musician Serena Smith, 23, from California, has been having surgical procedures since she was just a teenager to alter her look and emulate the appearance of Golden-age Hollywood beauties such Marilyn Monroe, Jayne Mansfield, and Anna Nicole Smith.’

‘She first went under the knife in December 2016, at just 18 years of age, when she had a boob job costing over $7,500, going from an A to DD.’

The reality star said she had a rhinoplasty that cost her 11K dollars to get a ‘glamorous Hollywood style nose.’ After that, she wanted to achieve much more with her transformed looks, so she got a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL).

“I chose a reputable surgeon in North America to carry out the procedure, and I am very happy with the results, I think they turned out great, the surgery completely changed my body proportions and gave me the curvier look I was after,” Smith said.

“You have to be extremely cautious about who you chose to allow to operate on you because you are putting your life in their hands, especially with surgeries like the BBL.”

“It’s the most dangerous plastic surgery with the highest death rate.”

According to the NYPost, this procedure is not for the faint-hearted. A 2017 report from The American Society states that BBL could result in the death of one out of every 3000 patients.

“A BBL involves taking fat from areas where it is unwanted like the stomach, back and flanks via liposuction, and transplanting it into the buttocks and hips, resulting in a curvier hourglass frame.”

“However, due to the nature of the procedure, fat embolisms that see fat enter the bloodstream and cause a blockage are a real risk and are the most common complication.” Quoted New York Post.

As per Smith, the road to recovery after the procedure wasn’t an easy road.

“I felt like I was hit by a truck,” she said.

“The recovery for this procedure is very intense, definitely the hardest so far. You have to wear a compression garment 23 hours a day for two months, and it can get pretty uncomfortable.”

“The most painful part of the recovery was the initial first two weeks. I was sore all over, covered in bruises, and very swollen.”

“I had drains in me collecting all the blood and fluids coming out of my body for almost two weeks which wasn’t a pretty sight, but in the end, it was all worth it.”

She also shared that the procedure was so painful that she couldn’t put pressure on her back for several months.

“It was hard to get in a comfortable position because your whole body is in pain, and you can’t put pressure on your buttocks for months. The hardest trying to find an easy position to sleep in. But, it was worth it when your confidence skyrockets.”

“Anything that helps me lead a happier, more confident life is worth it to me, and as they say, pain is beauty.” She concluded.
