Carla Bellucci, 38, from Hertfordshire, was trolled last summer after she admitting that she’d lied about having depression to get a £7,000 nose job on the NHS. She says her daughter Tanisha, 14, (left) is now equally ‘obsessed’ with cosmetic surgery

The teen’s handwritten Christmas present list put botox and lip fillers near the top, along with a horse,  a Valentino handbag and clothes for her pet dog 

The teenager says she has been ‘inspired’ by her mum’s surgery. 

Bellucci admitted on daytime television show This Morning last summer that she’d ‘flirted’ with a GP to get the slight bump on her nose fixed in February 2019. 

And she says she’ll now support Tanisha if she chooses to have work done, saying the teen should ‘do what makes her happy’ – even if that means plastic surgery, when she’s legally old enough.

The are currently no age restrictions for cosmetic surgeries such as botox, but Carla said she won’t allow Tanisha to get the injections until she’s at least 16.

Bellucci, who is a part-time model and regularly has botox, said: ‘I have said to her to do what makes her happy.

Carla had her two-hour nose operation in February 2019, which took place at Chase Farm in Enfield, which is part of the London Royal Free NHS Foundation Trust

Support: Mother Carla, a former model, says she’ll support Tanisha’s desire to look like a Kardashian and ‘perfect what she’s got’

In October, the mother-of-three claimed she was forced to move out of her home in Borehamwood, Hertfordshire, because she was getting so many death threats after she went public on her decision to lie about her depression battle.

She hasn’t been put off sharing her daughter’s desire to enhance her face though, saying: ‘I will always support her in whatever she wants to do. 

‘Tanisha doesn’t think she is ugly but she wants to perfect what she has got. She always says that my plastic surgery is cool and looks good.

‘I have inspired her and I can’t help that. She has been exposed to it from a young age and has seen what I have had done. I have influenced her and I know some people might think it’s a bad influence.’

She added: ‘I don’t see it as bad, she is obsessed with plastic surgery and that’s what she really wants. I can’t be a hypocrite and have to support her.’

Carla had her first plastic surgery procedure, breast implants, aged 22 before having botox, lip fillers and a nose job.

She went to London’s Harley Street clinic for botox in December – and Tanisha went with her to get an up close look at what to expect, if she does choose to get plastic surgery when she is old enough.

The teen said she wants plastic surgery to look like her idol Kylie Jenner.

Plastic surgery is illegal on children but there are currently no age restrictions for cosmetic surgeries such as botox

In October, Carla was heavily criticised after appearing on This Morning to defend herself for cheating the NHS into giving her a nose job for free

Tanisha said: ‘It doesn’t scare me about changing my body and I want to be like the Kardashians and Kylie Jenner.They are so popular and so famous and I look up to people like them, and Cardi B.

‘I am inspired by mum and I want to look like her. I like how she looks, it’s fine. I want to get something done when I turn 18.’


While plastic surgery is illegal on children unless there’s exceptional circumstance – eg following an accident, there is no lower age limit for enhancements such as botox and lip fillers in the UK, although many practitioners refuse to carry out such procedures on children under 18.

There is no law prohibiting the cosmetic use of Botox for patients under 18 years old, but many doctors refuse to do it.

According to the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS), aesthetic procedures on patients under the age of 18 years should be exceptional.

Surgeons are advised to go ahead with cosmetic surgery on under 18s following a full assessment of the risks and benefits. 

Bellucci says she has received harsh criticism over her own surgery, saying people sent her death threats and targeted her home.

She has since moved her and three children, Tanisha, Jermaine, 16, and 12-year-old Jayden to a rural part of Hertfordshire.

Carla, who claims £1,700 a month through Universal Credit, set a £5,500 budget aside to spend on her kids at Christmas, she said.

‘Jayden got a new Xbox one and both of the boys got new Apple Mac computers, which are about £800 each’, she said.

‘They all wanted designer clothes and the newest stuff. Jermaine got driving lessons because he turns 17 soon. People say I am a scrounger but I do support my kids.’
