Pete Burns Sues Over Lip Job

Published on January 25, 2007 with 1 Comment

Pete BurnsDead or Alive frontman Pete Burns is suing his plastic surgeon for negligence after a lip augmentation procedure left him looking “physically repulsive”.

The Lover Come Back To Me hitmaker claims Dr Maurizio Viel from the London Centre for Aesthetic Surgery botched his cosmetic surgery in 2000, leaving him with side effects including painful swelling, blisters and heavy discharge.

He alleges the damage is so severe doctors have warned him his lips might need to be amputated, adding, “What happened to me after a series of injections was far worse than any nightmare I could have envisioned. Not only was it agonisingly painful but it was physically repulsive in the extreme.

“It was impossible to lead any life whatsoever. I was unable to leave my house as I was so distorted with swelling and I might begin to discharge yellow pus that was coming from the holes in my face. At times it leaves me seriously suicidal and depressed and I could have problems for the rest of my life.

“If I can prevent at least one person from undergoing this hell and point them in the right direction to a doctor who can manage their problem, then at least I can help stop someone else suffering.”

Burns has had 100 operations over a 17 month period in a bid to reconstruct his face.
