Mother Who Had Over $750,000 in Plastic Surgery Writes Book About Her Experience

Sarah Burge has been nicknamed the “Real Life Barbie” in the UK because she has had over $750,000 worth of plastic surgery in her lifetime. This mother of three was recently in the news for administering Botox injections on her own daughter, and for giving another daughter a voucher for a breast augmentation procedure.  The book, “The Half a Million Pound Girl”, references the £500,000 it cost to achieve her Barbie-like figure, and highlights some of the key reasons why this now-51 year-old has gone under the knife. The book was written with former journalist Derek Clements and will be released on July 15, 2011.

If you’ve considered a plastic surgery makeover or multiple procedures, take a look at some before and after photos of plastic surgery procedures performed by surgeons in your area. Looking at plastic surgery before and after pictures can help you make some informed decisions about your procedure and also set some realistic expectations about the outcome of your surgeries.

Ms. Burge’s autobiography includes a detailed account of her past, and all of the different surgeries she has undergone over the years. The book’s description is as follows: “The Half a Million Pound Girl documents Sarah’s life from aspiring Italia Conti student, through a spell as a prostitute and beautician, making-up dead bodies in a funeral parlour, to training as a beauty consultant and having £500,000 worth of plastic surgery. Sarah’s rollercoaster ride of a book also describes her dangerous affair with the married Arab who almost killed her, sleeping with George Best and her liaison with a vicar.

She also spills the beans about her bizarre relationship with Hollywood actor Telly Savalas and how she got used to the high life whilst working as a Playboy Bunny. In this honest account, Sarah describes meeting first husband, John, how he abducted their daughter after the relationship broke down and how the wedding photographs from her second marriage prompted her to have her first cosmetic operation.”

The hardback version of the book is only available for pre-order online at this time, but can be downloaded on the Kindle via
