A plastic surgery addict has revealed how she was granted a ‘medical exemption’ to break lockdown travel restrictions and fly to Belgium for her fifth boob job.

Star Delguidice, 31, from Birmingham, has spent £23,500 on operations to change the size of her breasts over the last 14 years. 

The first four procedures were augmentations but the most recent one, carried out last month, was a reduction, bringing her GG cup breasts down to a D cup.  

When lockdown travel restrictions were enforced, Star refused to cancel her appointment at a Belgian clinic and applied for a medical exemption, claiming her breasts were causing crippling back pain and anxiety. 

Rules state UK citizens are allowed to travel abroad under a medical exemption is ‘urgent medical care’ is needed or if it is for a pre-planned procedure.

After the success of her first surgery, she’s planning on travelling to Colombia later this year for Brazilian Bum lift surgery. 

Star travelled to Belgium on January 21 to undergo a breast reduction and uplift. Star spent just 48 hours in the country and travelled via the Eurostar. 

She said she self-isolated for two weeks on her return to the UK. It came just weeks before Boris Johnson introduced strict hotel quarantine restrictions for those returning to the UK from high risk countries.

Can you travel for plastic surgery under lockdown restrictions? 

Rules state UK citizens are allowed to travel abroad under a medical exemption is ‘urgent medical care’ is needed or if it is for a pre-planned procedure. 

There is no hard and fast rule on what comes under ‘urgent care’ and it can vary on a case-to-case basis.

On return to the UK,  those coming from high-risk countries need to isolate in a government approved hotel and take two Covid tests.

Those travelling from lower-risk countries will need a letter from their healthcare provider and the place you are staying in the UK. They will otherwise be required to self-isolate.

 Healthcare means all forms of healthcare including mental and physical health. There are also exemptions for live donors and those accompanying the individual, for example a carer or a child. 

Now, three weeks after her operation, Star is recovering from her operation and says it’s her last breast surgery as she’s now thrilled with her smaller chest.

Star, who forked out £7,500 on her fifth breast surgery, said: ‘I have been respectful of the lockdown rules as since returning to the UK I have self-isolated.

‘I had to go abroad for this surgery as the cost was half of the price here.

‘The surgeon was the best and I could barely walk without being in pain before my surgery.

‘My breast size had ballooned to a 32GG and I couldn’t go out and about without being laughed at.

‘I’ve had five boob jobs in total now as I had my first ever operation aged 17.

‘My first four breast surgeries cost £16,000 as they were £4,000 each.

‘But my latest one was £7500 as it was a much bigger job.

‘I needed to have a reduction and uplift at the same time.

‘If I had this surgery in the UK it would have cost more than £15,000 and I would have needed two operations not one.

‘I’m hoping this is now my last as I have spent a small fortune all together.’

Despite only just returning from Belgium, Star, is hoping to book Brazilian butt lift (BBL) surgery later this year in Columbia.

She added: ‘After the nightmare I had with my bum implants, which left me looking like I was wearing a nappy, I do now need a bum lift.

‘I won’t be having any more silicone added in there but my bum doesn’t have a shape.

‘I had a date for my corrective surgery in Columbia but it was cancelled due to coronavirus.’

Star is now adjusting to life with her smaller 32D bust and hopes to give others hope who are struggling to get cosmetic surgery dates abroad.

She added: ‘If you desperately need the surgery like I did then there’s options.

‘I had a last minute appointment crop up and it was an opportunity that I couldn’t miss.

‘As I own more than one property I save for all of my surgeries myself.

‘I have had more than 150 procedures on my face and body since I was a teenager and I’m not finished yet.

‘I don’t want any other boob jobs though, I think five is enough.

‘Now my breast size is much smaller than before I’m hopeful that once I’m recovered I won’t have an more aches and pains.’

Star says this will be her last boob job as 'five are enough' but is planning a BBL later this year
