Knives Out: Brazil's Cosmetic Surgery Queen

Knives Out: Brazil's Cosmetic Surgery Queen

Meet Angela Bismarchi. She's a 36-year-old Brazilian model who is preparing for her 42nd plastic surgery. At 21, she had her first surgery: a breast lift. From there, she's married two plastic surgeons and is coming up with something pretty intense for next month's Carnival festivities:

Just days before Brazil’s Feb. 2-6 carnival begins, Bismarchi will have nylon wires implanted in her eyes to give them an Asian slant, in line with this year’s theme of her samba group, Porto da Pedra: the centennial of Japanese immigration to Brazil.

Whoa. I almost don't know where to begin with this story. It's one thing to go for a little plastic surgery; it's another to have nearly three treatments every year for a decade and a half. And what's with treating Asian eye shapes as an accessory? I'm dying to know what you think about this story, so please let me know.

I hope it's just a temporary thing..just for the festival...then she'll get the wires taken out. This is nuts.

I think she takes it to the same place, psychologically, as people who get really into body modification with loads of tattoos or piercings. Whatever makes her happy.

@ Anabj lol She's battling self-esteem issues. I personally think these cosmetic surgeons should have therapists is their office two days before the surgery. However, this idea would hurt their pockets...

and... the massive fake boobs are not cool... and i'd like to know how she raises her child (children?? does she have more than one)... let's see.. gets a surgery about three times a year for a decade or so... that means that for a decade she was always recovering and back into surgery... then modelling and now doing the carnival.. and i mean even if her husband is a surgeon, you figure she has to pay for some things... im' sorry my child is more important to me than filling me with plastic and metal... it's people like this who need special help and need to be shown a dose of reality before their head gets too big.. this whole things just makes me mad...

It's pretty sad when you've had more surgeries than you have lived in the earth. Another thing, I'm all for personal decisions but when she is getting these surgeries to break a record... come on. she's now just looking for things to do, get a hobby. And the fact she's married two plastic surgeons clearly tells me she's using them, whether she knows it or not. She needs mental help and the doctors that insert these nylon wires into her face need help. It's one thing to get a nose job or a boob job or an ear tuck or even butt implants... it's something completely different when you want to look like something you're not. She doens't look like a 36 year old, she's quite weird looking but then again who am I to say that she's weird looking...... I haven't had 42 plastic surgeries. Whatever, my rant is done... it'll eventually catch up to her and she's explode (or maybe implode) and hopefully then she'll realize natural is great, i just hope her child doens't take after her....

First of all what 21 year old needs a breast lift. Secondly what kind of doctor is going to do a procedure like this for a carnival.

Doctors must be thrilled to have her as a "living doll" to play with and try new techniques!

Well, guys, as a brazilian, I got to tell you: she's a "model", if you know what I mean??? She's horrible, not a good looking girl... Her husband done all these plastic surgeries to make her the most beautiful woman on Earth, according to what he likes or dislikes. Here in Brasil, people do that kind of stuff to be "pretty" and obviously it's kinda out of control, you know? But, don't worry, she's the Queen of Plastic Surgeries, not Queen of Beauty! That's for sure!!!

ok to get a little plastic surgery? i think the whole idea of it is creepy!
joysse joysse 8 years
gosh i think that's going way overboard, especially since it's only for a festival thats going to last for a few days... i wonder if she ever regrets some of the surgeries she's done, but then again, judging by the outrageousness of this surgery, i doubt it.

Asian women are so beautiful and I'd love to look like one, but having surgery for it? Nuts!! You just need to appreciate what you have. I understand a minor tweaking here and there, but major surgeries like this just scream Wacko Jacko.

It think it's facinating. I, in no way condone plastic surgery or would ever think to get anything tweaked, but I have seen what it does for people's self esteem in a body conscious society. It's like an addiction, once a surgery goes good another one doesn't seem too bad. This woman has taken it to the extreme. I know people who are like this with tatoos, to the point where they are running out of space on their body. Body modification is a funny thing to me, I think that the little physical differences make people who they are.

well i guess my asian eyes are one accessory i don't have to pay for. this is quite excessive. while i would never have plastic surgery myself, but for others, it's fine - in moderation!

The sad thing is, even WITH all that surgery, I still don't find her that beautiful just because she almost LOOKS plastic. =/
