Pete Burns to receive payout for botched lips
Pete Burns could receive a £1 million payout after his surgeon confessed to botching up the cross gender's lips.
Dead Or Alive singer Burns, claims that after having numerous injections to enhance his lips in 2000 and 2004 he was unable to eat, drink and speak (shame) and “wrecked his life and career”.
According to The Daily Star, his lawyers told the High Court last week Dr Maurizio Viel of the London Centre for Aesthetic Surgery did not carry out tests for possible side effects of the pro-collagen filler Outline. Never one to mince his words, 49 year old Burns said:
"It has taken away my life and my career. I saw doctors in London who said the only option was to amputate my lips. I was suicidal."
Sounds like a severe case of the Leslie Ash Condition, where cosmetic surgery can, quite literally blow up in your face.
