Transgender Woman Has Multiple Surgeries To Get The Perfect Body

When Fulvia Pellegrino came out to her family as a transgender woman, she did not have it remotely easy. She was 40 years old when she came out to her family. She was also married to a woman, Marisa who she hid her true feelings from for over three decades. But this was not the only big change in everyone's' lives.

Fulvia became determined to be the most beautiful, perfect woman she could possibly be. In her quest for perfection, she has already spent over $50,000 on cosmetic procedures. She had had multiple breast augmentation surgeries, lip fillers, facial fillers and multiple rounds of liposuction.

Fulvia says, "I am not happy with my 'perfect' body, because it is not perfect. Perfection is something else. I was living with my family who were very narrow-minded and very religious. I never manifested my will because it was impossible with my dad. He had three sons and he wanted three sons only. I was feeling trapped in my body. I hid in the garage and put make-up on dressed like a woman. I never showed that side of me because I was ashamed of it. It is difficult to grow up with a body which is not yours. 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."

Fulvia's wife has been very supportive throughout Fulvia's transition. However, they both agree it has taken a toll on their relationship as a couple. Fulvia said, "Obviously Marisa lost if for a moment, it is not something that is easy to accept. 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. My dad asked my wife to sign a paper to send me into a psychiatric institution to make me change my mind. 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."
