Model Andressa Urach has spoken out about her 2014 plastic surgery hell in the hope her experience keeps other women safe.

The Brazilian stunner has revealed she came close to death after a surgical procedure to enhance her thighs went awry.

Urach was placed on life support in November (14) after she was allegedly given a dose of silicone gel 200 times the amount allowed by Brazilian government officials and a hydrogel not approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Still recovering and bleeding through her skirt during a Brazilian Tv interview this week (beg25Jan15), the model admitted she regrets putting "poison in my body, mostly because of having too much vanity".

Pointing to her bleeding legs during the Tv chat, she added, "I hope that these wounds at least serve as a warning to other women."
