Sophie Kasaei has revealed she ‘almost died’ after undergoing a botched BBL in Turkey when she was 24-years-old.

The Geordie Shore star, 34, opened up about her ‘traumatic’ procedure that ‘nearly killed her’ during a candid video on TikTok that she posted on Monday.

Sophie, who was insecure about her ‘flat bottom’, admitted she was promised a ‘Kim Kardashian figure’, but instead suffered ‘agonising’ repercussions due to the botched surgery.

The TV personality suffered a life-threatening abscess which led to her having emergency surgery to drain one litre of puss on her left bumcheek.

Shedding light on her ‘near-death experience’, Sophie said: ‘Someone who didn’t have many curves, I was quite straight, I thought “omg this is amazing, I can go over to Turkey for free and get a BBL and look like Kim Kardashian and have this amazing figure.”

Turkey has become one of the most popular destinations, fuelled by celebrities and influencers who’ve made the four-hour trip in pursuit of revamping their bodies. 

She added: ‘I was about 24, so off I was to Turkey. When I arrived in Turkey, I underwent the procedure and a couple of days later looked at myself in the mirror and thought “wait, should I be this bruised?”

‘The holes on my back as well. I looked like a sieve. I’ve just got burns marks all over my back where they went through.

‘I got liposunction as well because they promised me my body would be great and I’d look amazing.

‘After the healing process, six weeks or eight weeks later, I started getting a pain in my left bum cheek and I was in agony.

‘I was in Mexico at the time, and I actually went to a hospital there. They put me on a drip and started panicking. Everyone was running around.

‘And they were saying they was an abscess in their and if that burst, you would be dead.

‘I told them to book me on a flight home because if I’m going to die, I want to die with my family around me.

‘So off I was back to Newcastle. I went straight to hospital. I had to stay in there overnight, wake up in the morning and go straight into surgery for them to drain this abscess growing on my bum.

‘They drained one litre of puss. It was so traumatic. Getting it packed was the worst pain in the world – I screamed the hospital down.

‘It was just hell. I felt ill, I couldn’t walk, my whole leg was numb. I couldn’t even sit on it. It was just absolute agony.

‘Eventually the wound healed but was forming this horrendous scare which was leaving this shark-type scare.’

Sophie told her horror story to warn young girls of the dangerous surgery and the complications it can lead too.

She captioned her video: ‘I’ve been wanting to tell this story for a while now but this is my BBL hell journey. This video is for educational purposes only.

‘Any questions feel free to ask.’
