I'm addicted to Botox, I’ve spent almost £17,000 going line-free – now I can't close my left eye weeks before my wedding | The Sun
IT was her nose-job that saw her rise to notoriety but ‘Britain’s most hated woman’ says her love of nips and tucks has come back to bite her.
Carla Bellucci, who claims to have faked depression to access surgery on the NHS, has been left unable to close one of her eyes just weeks before her wedding.
The mum, 41, from Hitchin, Herts, says that her ‘addiction’ to Botox means that she could be left looking like ‘Frankenstein’s bride’ at her wedding which is just five weeks away.
Speaking exclusively to Fabulous, Carla, who lives with her fiancé Gio and her three youngest children, Tanisha, 17, Jayden, 15, and 14-month-old Blue, says: “I love to have a bit of Botox.
“I must spend around £1,200 a year on getting my fine lines smoothed and I’ve been having it done since I was 26 so that’s almost £17.k.
“So when two separate clinics got in touch and asked whether I’d be up for some free treatments I jumped at the chance.

“Only now I wish I hadn’t bothered.”
Despite the NHS advising that you should wait at least three months between Botox procedures, Carla managed to squeeze in four visits in as many weeks, hopping between clinics to ensure she would be served.
But as her face started to adjust to the procedures, Carla noticed that something wasn’t right.
“When I was on my way home from my final procedure I noticed my face was more lumpy than usual,” she says.

“My fiance Gio noticed immediately but I thought he was just being dramatic.”
But by the next morning, Carla realised that there was a serious issue.
“I couldn’t close one eye at all, I basically looked cross eyed,” Carla says.
“Botox takes a few weeks to take full effect so you can imagine how worried I was.
“Each day it was getting worse and worse so everyday I was waking up s***ing myself.
“It is gradually opening, but very gradually. It looks like I have a massive lazy eye – I am just hoping it won’t be permanent.”

The timing couldn’t be worse for Carla who is currently just five weeks away from her dream wedding in Cape Verde.
“I can’t believe this has happened to me – not now,” says Carla.
“I have no idea what I’m going to do if it hasn’t gone down by the wedding, get a good side sweep or wear an eye patch by the looks of things.
“Unfortunately there’s not much I can do, it’s just a waiting game.”
Carla says while she is devastated, she realises that she is responsible for the accident.
“I know this is all my fault, and it’s made me realise I have an addiction to Botox,” she says.
“Gio was always telling me that I was overdoing it, to the point that I started keeping my appointments a secret.

“I’m sure everyone will be highly amused by this, they’re going to love it, they’re gonna have a field day but I hope this will teach others to be more careful.
“I wanted to put it out there just how dangerous it can be – we all think that Botox because it’s non-surgical is totally risk free.
“When you go for these treatments we’re given these forms all about the risks but I don’t even look at them to be honest but we really should.
“This experience hasn’t put me off for life but I will definitely be going less than I was I can’t live without it but I will definitely be more careful.
