ABSTRACT
Alicia Douvall, who has had more than 330 cosmetic procedures and operations, is backing The Mail on Sunday's campaign for new safeguards to protect vulnerable people from unscrupulous plastic surgeons. She is obviously ill, as she claims, with a mental problem about her looks. In my view, the doctors must have known this, and still did the operations. It seems all they cared about was getting their hands on her money.
