‘Nothing worse’ than young women having cosmetic procedures, says Katie Price

Katie Price has said there’s “nothing worse” than young women having cosmetic procedures such as boob jobs and face and lip fillers.

The former glamour model is well known for her enhancements but said she’s “not a hypocrite” to say they can be “damaging” to the body.

Price, 45, told the podcast How To Fail With Elizabeth Day: “There’s nothing worse than when these young girls now, and I will say it, in their early 20s, who are all getting fillers, all getting lips, all getting the boobs.

“I’m not a hypocrite, but I didn’t start doing my face until I was in my 40s. Yes, I had a boob job, but I didn’t even have fillers.”

Price has been open about her own enhancements.

In 2021, she shared graphic images from a trip to Turkey where she had procedures including full-body liposuction and eye and lip lifts.

But the mother of three told the podcast she didn’t have Botox until “I was like 27/28”.

She added: “All the girls look the same now, and I think ‘what are they going to look like then when they’re my age’?”

Price said her numerous cosmetic procedures had probably deterred her own children from getting surgery.

“They’re so used to it I think I’ve put them off for life,” she said.

Price also said young women need to be aware of the pain and discomfort that can accompany some procedures.

“People don’t realise when you have surgery and stuff, you only see before and after, you don’t see in between,” she told the podcast.

“When you’ve had it, the pain and the cleaning, the stitches out and the bed rests. So I would love to educate people about it. It’s damaging to your body.”

‘Men to blame’

After her 2021 surgery, she told The Sun she felt like “a piece of meat being carved up” and that the swelling had left her looking like a “monster”.

That didn’t put her off however, and earlier this year she shared a video on Instagram showing her having filler in her lips and backside.

Price, who was famously married to singer Peter Andre, also opened up about the effect of her past romantic relationships – even blaming them for her money troubles.

She said her relationship with Andre was “real” but that subsequent partners were “just rebounds” as she was longing for the married life again.

“If men had not been in my life, I wouldn’t be in the bankruptcy things that I’ve been in,” she told Elizabeth Day.

“I wouldn’t be tormented in my brain or mentally abused like I have been. It’s all to do with men… I don’t know if it’s associated with it, but I have therapy all because of men.”

She said her ADHD diagnosis in 2023 could be to blame for some of her struggles.

“I’ve now been diagnosed, not that I believe in labels, but it makes sense that I’ve got severe ADHD,” she said.

“And it would make sense now, because I’ve made the wrong choices, done the wrong things, when really I’m just innocent (and) gullible.”
