Love Island’s Anna Vakili On How She Thought She Was ‘Going To Die’ After Second Cosmetic Surgery

"Bandaged up, bleeding… it was like a horror movie.”

Love Island star Anna Vakili, who rose to fame on the 2019 season of the hit reality show, has revealed she thought she was going to die after getting a second Brazilian bum lift.

Speaking with her sister Mandi, the pair opened up on about the ordeal on their podcast, Sisters in the City.

Explaining why she decided to get a second procedure, Anna shared: “A Brazilian butt lift 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 with a reputable surgeon.

“I don’t regret that first one. It made me feel better, it made me feel more confident. We went too far when we did it again.”

Mandi then added: “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.”

Anna then 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.

“So many people die. It’s one of the most invasive surgical procedures a BBL and it’s one of the most complicated and dangerous ones, so don’t take the decision lightly. Without surgery you have a body that’s not full of scars.”

Speaking about the podcast episode on her Instagram, Anna shared her worries about speaking on the topic of cosmetic surgery.

“I’ve kept quiet up until now – but I’ve finally opened up about what surgical procedures I’ve had, any regrets/mistakes, my thoughts on surgery and this constant pressure we have in this day and age to look a certain way.”

She continued, “I was always worried about talking about this topic – but I do wish sometimes I did certain things differently so if me being open can guide someone when making this life changing decision then it’s for the best.

“Everyone should do whatever makes them happy as long as they are doing it for themselves, they’ve done their research and are sure of their decision.”
