A woman blew her entire £30,000 house deposit on cosmetic surgeries to achieve her ‘dream body’.

Scarlet Black, 27, from Chelsea, spent her hard saved cash on thirteen surgeries, ranging from a gastric sleeve to a BBL and buttock lift.

The social media influencer had always struggled to control her diet, but she reached her heaviest weight of 25st 350lbs in lockdown, when she would binge on up to three takeaways a day.

After saving money every month for two years, Scarlett finally managed to put £30,000 to one side to buy her future home.

But after using some of it to have her first cosmetic surgery, a gastric sleeve, she realised she wanted to spend the deposit on something else, her dream body.

Despite the loss of £30k, she remains positive about her decision and said: 'I might not be getting my dream house, but at least I get to live in my dream body'

Her addiction to spending thousands on her body resulted in her spending over budget, which was £31,500, but this didn’t matter for Scarlet, but she struggled massively growing up with her weight.

She said: ‘I was always big growing up, on and off yo-yo diets with losing loads and gaining loads.

‘I was stuck in a vicious cycle that I couldn’t get out of.

‘Lockdown happened, I stayed in more, binged more on takeaways, and stopped walking as much.

She added: ‘I would eat portions made for families.

‘For a meal, I would have a large pizza, garlic bread, fried chicken, and wedges on the side which would be washed down with a 1.5 litre of cola and a big cookie pudding.

‘Some days, I would have three takeaways a day.

‘My health was deteriorating, I heard about the gastric sleeve, and that for me was my last resort for help.’

After having the gastric sleeve back in February 2021, Scarlet’s confidence skyrocketed and she decided to have a tummy tuck, muscle repair, arm liposuction, and an arm lift that was later booked for November 2021.

These surgeries were to help with the aftermath of the gastric sleeve due to having loose skin, as she happened to shed a whopping 14st 196 lbs. 

She said: ‘My first operation was a gastric sleeve, which helped me lose weight.

‘I lost 14 stone altogether, so I was left with loads of loose skin, so these surgeries that I had done in November 2021 helped get rid of it all.’

In March 2022, Scarlet booked her breast augmentation which added another dent in the 30k, costing her £6,000.

She said: ‘I actually had three boob jobs, which a lot of people always say to me, ‘What? You had three? What the hell?’ and what people don’t really know unless you have had a boob job, is you must go up in little stages to slowly stretch your skin.

‘Otherwise, if you don’t, you get a lot of complications.’

Following on from her March surgeries, she later went back to Turkey in August 2022 to have a thigh lift and breast augmentation, which summed up to £7,000.

A year on from that, the 27-year-old went back to her surgeon this August, to add some curves back into her body which ended up costing her £8,000 and using up all her deposit.

The £8,000 paid for her Periareolar, breast augmentation, BBL (Brazilian Butt Lift), liposuction, and buttock lift.

‘When I was bigger, I was obviously more curvaceous, and I just missed having some curves as they always made me feel feminine.

‘So, I gained some extra weight which ended up being 2st (28lbs) and booked myself in for the BBL and other procedures.

‘It was a bit triggering when I was getting it done, as they needed me to have enough fat to suck out of me, to put back into me.

She added: ‘I just kept thinking to myself, ‘Oh god, I’m doing the opposite, I’m putting weight back on’, but you know what, after the surgery, I feel really good and it’s the best I have ever felt.’

With Scarlet’s house deposit all gone, she has no regrets.

She said: ‘I would do it again in a heartbeat to see myself in the mirror now and actually smile back at my reflection.

‘At the end of the day, money comes back but it’s helped me mentally and physically… and I do not regret it.

‘I’m currently saving again to buy a house next year or the year after, you live in your body more than your own home, so to me, it’s just self-investing.’
