It’s the dream of Serena Smith to look like Hollywood beauties Marilyn Monroe & Jayne Mansfield. To achieve this, the 23-Year-Old has been going under the knife, with her first operation in December 2018 at 18. At the time, she had a boob job that cost over $7,500, going from a 32A to 32DD.
Soon after, Serena had a nose job that cost $11,500 and has regularly undergone procedures like Botox & fillers.
It’s six years since she started her plastic surgeries, and despite spending roughly $50,000 on procedures, including a recent Brazilian B*tt Lift surgery, Serena has insisted she’s far from finished and preparing for another b**b job. With her recent BBL surgery, she attested to feeling like being hit by a truck, but she doesn’t regret it.
According to Serena, pain is beauty, and she will never stop having surgery until she’s satisfied.
“I’m looking forward to my next surgery, a revision of my breast augmentation to go bigger. I’m planning on going from 500 cc implants to 1000cc implants on each side. I needed to do the BBL first before my extra-large implants so I would have good proportions and my body would by symmetrical,” she said.
Serena added she doesn’t want to look like an upside-down triangle & it’s all about balance to achieve an attractive look.
Of her BBL surgery, she explained: “The recovery is very intense, definitely the hardest so far. You have to wear a compression garment 23 hours a day for two months, and it can get pretty uncomfortable. The most painful part of the recovery was the initial first two weeks. I was sore all over, covered in bruises, and very swollen.”
Serena alleged she drained, collecting all the blood and fluids coming out of her body for almost two weeks which wasn’t a pretty sight.
“It was very hard to get in a comfortable position because your whole body is in pain. You can’t put any pressure on your b*tt for a couple of months. I was sleeping on my stomach for almost two months and driving around in the truck of my friend’s car lying flat on my stomach. I couldn’t sit at a restaurant for at least a month and I had to use a special BBL pillow to sit.”
But despite the struggles, Serena is happy with the results as they turned out great. It changed her body proportions and gave her the curvy look she sought.
According to the California-based, when it’s all over, and we see the results, everything is worth it for that newfound confidence. She continued: “Anything that helps me lead a happier, more confident life is worth it to me, and like they say, pain is beauty.” Serena’s doctors are based in North America as she believes that in other countries, they might do more extreme surgeries, which is unsafe.
Having surgeries makes Serena feel empowered, and she loves that she can create herself to be whoever she wants.
“Having this vision in my head of how I see myself come to life is extremely satisfying. I am happy with the results from all my surgeries, but do I still see upgrades and improvements that can be made? Absolutely. I want more surgeries in the future because I like to continually improve myself. It’s an investment into yourself.”
Being comfortable within herself implies Serena isn’t bothered by the criticisms she receives online.
Serena appreciates the people who love and support her and those who choose to judge and spread negativity; she isn’t fazed. In all, the beauty enjoys spreading positivity via her Instagram page and having it be a safe place for her followers. According to Serena, no one can please everyone because not everyone chooses to be happy and positive. But you can control how you react to and perceive things.
