You have to feel for people who are obsessed with plastic surgery. It can make people feel much better about themselves but often comes at great risk to their financial and personal health.
That's certainly the case for one British woman, who has been in so much pain since she had a 'Brazilian butt lift' that she is now struggling to sit down.
CHECK OUT THE INTERVIEW WITH STAR BELOW:
Plastic surgery addict Star Delguidice, from Birmingham, appeared on breakfast show This Morning to discuss her new bum implants, which she got in the hope of having a rear like Jennifer Lopez.
Star told hosts Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes that she gained three stone for the £15,000 ($20,800) procedure, with the fat being transferred to her hips and bottom. She added that she wanted implants too 'but didn't realise they would be that big'.
She underwent surgery towards the end of last year and has found it 'really painful' to sit down ever since - hence why she needed to conduct the interview standing up.

"It's a very dangerous new craze. I didn't realise the dangers and the risks," Star explained about Brazilian butt lifts.
"I really did not realise what it was going to be like and it's just caused me great anxiety."
Star admitted she didn't do much research into the procedure beforehand, describing herself as 'naïve'.
"I can be very naïve sometimes like many young ladies out there. I didn't do much research on it.
"I've never been happy with the way I looked. I used to be a size zero, really skinny, and my bum was really flat. But I do really miss my bum before."

Star explained that while it normally takes six months to recover from bum implants, because her implants are so big and placed 'under the muscle' it might take up to two years for her to feel comfortable again.
Star admitted that she's suffered so much stress as a result of the implants that she's now undergoing therapy for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
The addict has spent over £200,000 ($277,000) on modifying her body and blames her surgery addiction on growing up in a family of strict Jehovah's Witnesses.
"It stems from being a young child and being shut away from a lot of things," she admitted.
"I'm not entirely blaming my family for the way I turned out, but you know."
Hopefully Star will recover more quickly than expected - although she might need to be more careful next time.
