Woman Spends £52,000 On Plastic Surgery After Realizing She Is Transgender

A transgender woman has spent £52,000 on an array of cosmetic procedures designed to improve her appearance. After her first procedure, the transgender woman became addicted to plastic surgery and planned to keep having plastic surgery operations until she was happy with her body.

The woman in question, a 56-year-old Italian woman named Fulvia Pellegrino, has had over 150 fillers in her lips and cheekbones, two liposuction rounds and 4 separate breast implants.

Despite the cost, Fulvia’s wife, Marisa, has stood by her former husband and supports her decision to become a woman. According to a report on the Mirror, Fulvia and Marisa no longer act like husband and wife. Instead, the former couple have developed a familial relationship.

Despite her extensive cosmetic history, Fulvia maintains that she needs more plastic surgery operations. “I am not happy with my ‘perfect’ body, because it is not perfect,” she said. “Perfection is something else.”

Fulvia first realized that she was transgender when she was a 15-year-old boy. However, the teenager was raised in a strict religious home and was afraid of her father’s reaction if he told his parents what he was feeling.

“I was living with my family who were very narrow-minded and very religious,” said Fulvia. “I never manifested my will because it was impossible with my dad…He had three sons and he wanted three sons only.”

At the age of 32, Fulvia met Marisa Altare and married her in a quiet ceremony. However, the tortured man continued to struggle with his identity and marriage. The identity crisis prompted Fulvia to begin cross-dressing in his garage.

Eventually, Fulvia started visiting gay clubs in an attempt to find other people like him. “I was feeling trapped in my body,” she told the Mirror. “I hid in the garage and put make-up on and dressed like a woman. I never showed that side of me because I was ashamed of it.”

However, when Fulvia went out in public, he tried to mask his gender struggle by doing traditional ‘manly’ activities. “It is difficult to grow up with a body which is not yours,” said Fulvia. “You try to mask it in every way playing football, drinking beers, buying American 4x4s and go shooting to feel like a man…Instead you understand it is a mask and so you need to throw it away and become what you are.”

After years of living a double life, Fulvia finally told Marisa that she was transgender in 2000.

“Obviously Marisa lost it for a moment, it is not something that is easy to accept,” revealed Fulvia. “Today Marisa and I are nothing more than two sisters…We live together, we argue like two normal people but not like husband and wife.”

However, Fulvia’s parents have not been as understanding, with the Italian woman revealing that her father tried to convince Marisa to “sign a paper to send me into a psychiatric institution to make me change my mind.”

Since then, Fulvia has continued to live her life without the support or love of her parents and grandparents, saying: “It was very hard, when my father passed away they didn’t let us go to the funeral because they were ashamed of us…The only people who accepted me were my brothers.”
