A self-confessed surgery addict who has spent more than £15,000 on transforming herself says she will stop at nothing to achieve plastic perfection.
Leza Drummond, 34, from Bangor, Northern Ireland, has splurged thousands on three boob jobs as well as countless injections of Botox and lip filler, but insists she isn’t done yet.
Even her breast implants rupturing – which caused six months of agonising pain – has not deterred her from planning more surgery.

‘Nothing is ever big enough for me. I have quite an addictive personality. I always want more,’ said Leza, who works as a barber.
‘Maybe I’ll calm down as I get older. I don’t want to be in my sixties looking like a plastic doll.
‘But I can’t see myself stopping any time soon.’
Growing up, Leza said she was ‘obsessed’ with surgery, poring over images of models in magazines and wishing she could be like them.

In particular, she was a fan of Katie Price’s look – although she says she doesn’t like her image as much anymore.
Then, when she was 26, she took out a £3,500 loan to get her first boob job, increasing her cup size from a 32B to a DD.
However, her implants were PIP, which were withdrawn from the UK in 2010 after it emerged they had been fraudulently manufactured with unapproved silicone gel.
Leza was one of the unfortunate women whose implants ruptured.
A year ago, Leza began plumping up her lips, which had previously been a source of insecurity

She recalled: ‘I was in agony for about six months. It was like a stabbing pain.
‘My right breast was so sore I couldn’t even touch it, and my left was shifted in shape so it looked like a triangle.’
Leza visited her surgeon, who replaced the implants with even bigger ones free of charge.
She continued: ‘My experience didn’t put me off surgery.
‘Not having implants at all just wasn’t an option.’
Now, Leza has had her breasts implanted with 825CC of silicone which roughly translates to a GG cup – and she has plans to go even bigger.
She also began having Botox at just 26 years old.

At first, she underwent injections twice a year, but she now gets them at least every three months at £200 a time.
Just over a year ago, she began plumping up her lips, which had previously been a source of insecurity.
‘Naturally, I almost have no lips whatsoever,’ she explained. ‘After a while, it started really affecting my self-esteem.
‘I’d see pictures in magazines of models rocking the fake look – the big lips and big boobs – and thought that’s what people liked, so I went for it.’

Currently, Leza isn’t sure how much filler she has injected into her pillowed pout.
While most people have 1mm top ups every four to seven months, she was having up to 1mm injected every month.
Then, when the salon she frequents refused to continue performing the procedure so regularly, she scaled her habit back.
Now, Leza has between 1mm and 2mm injected every three months, again costing £200 a time.

‘My look gets compared to Jodie Marsh a lot, especially as I have tattoos,’ she said.
‘A lot of people who get fillers talk about Kylie Jenner’s lips, but they’re too small for me. I think I’ve gone way past that now.’
In total, Leza, who is going to start a blog on body images, estimates she’s spent around £15,000 on surgery.

She insisted bills and rent are her first priority – but admitted that surgery comes a close second.
Though her family, friends and boyfriend Graeme McAuley, 25, are all supportive, Leza said they do sometimes worry that her habit is getting out of control.
‘Graeme and I have been together a year-and-a-half, and my look has changed a lot in that time,’ she said. ‘He was happy with the way I was before.
‘He thinks I’m obsessed with surgery. I told him I was thinking of getting bum implants the other day and he almost had a heart attack.’

Sadly, Leza’s look has made her the target of cruel internet trolls, which she admitted can be tough to handle, with hurtful comments being posted on her Instagram account where she has more than 5,000 followers.
‘Round where I live, people know me and know my look. But on the internet, it’s a different story,’ she said.
‘I’ve had private messages on Instagram calling me disgusting and telling me to kill myself.
‘I’ve grown a thick skin but it can be hurtful. I try to just ignore them and not give them the reaction they want.
‘I don’t care what other people look like – I say live and let live – so why are strangers so bothered about me?
‘My surgery has helped me with my confidence and I’m not going to stop.’
