A stunning Brazilian influencer who splashed out more than GBP 50,000 on 20 cosmetic procedures has raised eyebrows claiming plastic surgery is “super healthy”.
Jessica Juliane – who boasts 370,000 followers on Instagram and 139,000 on TikTok – has spent more than BRL 300,000 (GBP 50,800) on cosmetic procedures.
The mum of one has had eight liposuctions, four boob jobs, two bum lifts, a nose job, cosmetic ear surgery, a neck lift, and an abdominoplasty.
The 29-year-old – who runs a nightclub in Porto Alegre, Rio Grande do Sul State – has also had surgery on her jawline, lip fillers, facial harmonisation, and Botox.
And now she is urging anyone fed up with the way they look to use surgery to make a change.
She joked to local media: “When I show my before and after, people are shocked. I don’t even recognise myself. I’m totally artificial.”
Jessica explained: “I started by getting silicone in my breasts. I lost weight very quickly at the time and I was not satisfied with my body, I became more flabby and had low self-esteem.
“There was also a certain pressure to be a model, brands and stores wanted a more fitted shape. I ended up jumping on the bandwagon and never stopped.”
But Jessica – mother to a young daughter named Pietra Antonella, who has her own Instagram account with 13,900 followers – does not regret her radical change.
She told local media: “I don’t encourage getting plastic surgery for no reason, I encourage women who are down, unhappy with what they see in the mirror. I think technology arrives to help us.
“If a woman doesn’t think she is beautiful and attractive, why not resort to surgery? I think it’s super healthy. Taking care of your appearance is not a sin.”
