Real life Barbie publishes cosmetic surgery book
21 June 2011Sarah Burge, who is better known as the real life Barbie, has published a book detailing the reasons why she has spent £500,000 on cosmetic surgery. The 51-year-old, who is married with three daughters, has undergone countless procedures to alter the way she looks, with the first coming after she saw photographs from her wedding day. Unhappy with the size and shape of her chin, Burge had surgery to change it and began a lifetime of cosmetic alterations to her face and body. In her book, Burge describes how she was raped and beaten and how this led to her needing cosmetic surgery to reconstruct her face. She also talks about her appearance on the Jeremy Kyle show last year and admits that it was a huge mistake and that she was verbally attacked by the chat show host. Burge has had breast augmentation, Botox, liposuction and other surgical procedures, and has not ruled out having more in the future.
