The model/TV presenter would be admitted to hospital in the southern city of Porto Allegre after removing gel from her thighs which had been injected for cosmetic enhancement.
Urach’s surgery wounds would be infected following a second operation to drain her thighs her mother Marisete De Favari told.
The model is best known for her second place finish in the 2012 Miss Bumbum competition, which covets the most attractive derriere in the nation.
Ahead of the competition, Miss Urach, who hit headlines around the world after claiming she had had an affair with footballer Cristiano Ronaldo, a claim he strenuously denied, had injected two types of ‘body fillers’, hydrogel and PMMA, into the upper legs to fill out the thighs and lift her bottom.
The model also made headlines earlier this year reports the nydailynews when she claimed she made a booty call to Ronaldo and that the Real Madrid star was ‘obsessed with my butt.’
‘It was incredible, his body’s perfect, like a Greek god. He went on for hours and would not stop talking about my butt,’ she said after one supposed meeting.
Things would take a turn for the worse in July when she discovered that the products she had injected were causing her leg muscles to rot, leaving her in excruciating pain.
In an interview with Brazil’s R7 she said: ‘The hydrogel was not absorbed by my body and started to harm me. Now I’ve discovered that the PMMA is sticking to my muscles and causing the tissue to rot.
‘That’s why I am feeling such strong pains. I’m taking morphine every four hours and antibiotics to alleviate the suffering.’
Soon after Miss Urach underwent an operation to drain 400ml of hydrogel from each leg, but the model continued to complain of discomfort and pain.
It wouldn’t be until this Saturday that the model was rushed to the Conceicao Hospital with an advanced infection of her left leg.
She would undergo two unsuccessful drainage procedures on Sunday and Monday.
On Tuesday, the model went into septic shock and was taken to the intensive care ward, where she remains sedated in a ‘serious’ state.
Reports would tell that the thigh augmentation surgery was one of at least nine cosmetic procedures the Miss Bumbum runner-up had done in the last five years.
Previous renderings included a nose job, a bioplasty facial ‘correction’, jaw reduction, boob job, liposuction and even vaginal lip reduction.
A friend of Ms Urach, who didn’t want to be named, said the TV presenter had been unable to perform physical exercises for four months.
She said: ‘She was always in a lot of pain. She knew that the liquid was dripping inside of her and she didn’t want to use shorts or miniskirt.’
Another Miss BumBum contestant, Jessica Lopes, who shared an apartment with Andressa Urach, said: ‘Everyone is in a state shock.
‘Andressa and I would go to the plastic surgeon as if we were going shopping. Sometimes we would agree to do some procedure together, we were not afraid. We were slaves to beauty.’
Ms Urach’s agent, Cacau Oliver, who is also the creator of the Miss BumBum competition, on Monday night asked fans of the model to pray for her.
He said: ‘We are all praying fervently, now is the time to pray.’
The model’s mother, Marisete De Favari, who hasn’t left her daughter’s bedside, last night thanked fans or their messages of support but asked the to keep praying.
She wrote on her Facebook page: ‘A beautiful, intelligent woman, a girl full of dreams, who has fought to get where she is, who never gave up even though nothing was easy, who just wants the best for her family, a girl who fears God.
‘For this, I am certain, by by faith, that she will be cured. Thank you all from the heart and I ask that you keep praying, because this will be one more fight and my baby will come through it victorious.’
The episode has once again brought focus to the unrelenting focus and campaign by women to take inordinate risks in an effort to parallel preferred cultural dispositions and what an ideal woman ought to look like. A concern that is overwhelmingly prevalent in Brazil and willfully dealt with despite ongoing horror stories…
