LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – A New York woman, who's had her face fixed 15 times, is warning others now that excessive scarring can come from too many plastic surgeries.  Laura Perella says she's spent over $61,000 on her face.

"I've had upper, lower eyes, I've had my nose done, a chin implant, I've had a lip lift, chin implant removed," said Laura Perella.  "Gortex implants, two face lifts, one major facelift and I don't think I've forgotten anything."

At age 39 now, Laura says she traded beauty for scars.  She claims bad surgeons just took her money, instead of offering real help.  She's written a book called "Chasing Beauty" to warn other women against the false promise of plastic.  Another message in this is to choose your surgeon carefully.  A board certified plastic surgeon is trained to counsel with their patients first and warn them about unrealistic expectations.
