German model Theresia Fischer has revealed how she spent $225,000 on a leg-lengthening operation and regrets it.
The 31-year-old had 14cm added to her height in the intense surgery.
According to The Sun, at age 24 the model had adjustable telescopic rods inserted into her shins that are gradually cranked to extend her legs.
The Hamburg resident — who featured on Germany’s version of Big Brother — shared how her former husband, aged 59, pushed her to do it.
In an interview with MDR Jump, she blamed him for having to undergo such a gruelling operation.
The bombshell said he told her how he likes “big ladies”.
“Theresia, you know I like big ladies. So I would really like this. You could get up to 14cm more.”
“[He would say] ‘you can’t do anything without me. You need me.’ And if you are told that 20, 30, 60, 70 times then you believe that you are nothing without him.”
The influencer used to be 5 foot 6 inches and said she had never even known leg lengthening operations existed before her ex’s proposal.
“I’ve never dealt with that before because I’ve always been happy with my body,” she said.
Fischer now measures up to 6 feet without shoes and is ashamed that she went through with it.
“I am ashamed because I consented to an operation that I shouldn’t have had,” she said.
However, in 2019, Fischer shared how her new length had heightened her sex life with her former hubby.
“My sex is better now. I have become very flexible with my legs and have more room to manoeuvre in bed.”
