A Brazilian model who became known after competing in the Miss BumBum competition is said to be in serious condition after reportedly undergoing botched cosmetic surgery.
Andressa Urach, a 2012 competitor and ultimately the runner-up in Brazil’s Miss BumBum competition to try and find the best butt in the country, reportedly suffered an infection following cosmetic surgery. The initial procedure involved a surgeon implanting hydrogel into her thigh, but something went wrong, and now, Urach, who is also known for an alleged affair with soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo, has been placed on a breathing machine.
“I ask everyone to pray a lot, because I'm sure that my dear Jesus is wonderful and will cure it,” said the 27-year-old model’s mother in a statement.
Urach first started showing complications from the procedure back in July, and in an interview, she explained how it started.
“The hydrogel was not absorbed by my body and started to harm me,” Urach said. “Now I've discovered that the PMMA is sticking to my muscles and causing the tissue to rot. That's why I am feeling such strong pains. I'm taking morphine every four hours and antibiotics to alleviate the suffering.”
Now, months later, she reportedly has gone into septic shock after two unsuccessful attempts to drain her leg, and doctors say she’s in “serious” condition. Friends and family are asking for continued prayers and are hoping for a miracle.
