WE’RE used to seeing Katie Price’s ever-changing face and body.
But even by the TV’s star’s standards, her complete overhaul in Turkey last month – which included a facelift, a bottom enlargement and liposuction – was extreme.
So how much has Katie, 43, changed her appearance over the years- and how much is she likely to have paid out for it?
Here Tanith Carey talks to the UK’s top cosmetic surgeons and experts about how Katie’s very pricey beauty regime has added up – to more than three quarters of a million pounds (although the star might have bagged a few for free).
Katie was just 19 and just hitting the limelight when she got her first boob implant in 1998, taking her from a 32B to a 32D.
It proved to be a slippery slope and since then her bust size has had more ups and down than her love life.
Seeing the notoriety it gave her, over the next two years, Katie had two more surgeries, taking her to D and then to an F, despite her slight 5ft4ins frame.
After taking a break to have her first two children Harvey in 2002 and Junior in 2005, she went to the US the following year to take herself up to G, before returning to a C cup in 2008.
But it was just the start of another roller-coaster.
In 2012, she went back to 32F. When those implants got infected she dipped down to a B cup, and stayed implant-free for a while.
But then in 2017, Katie went her biggest yet and flew to a clinic in Brussels where she went up to a 32GG
Those then got reduced from 1000ml implants to 795 ml in her 9th operation in 2017.
This March she confirmed she has now had her 12th procedure in Belgium to correct a botched surgery in Turkey.
Cosmetic doctor, Dr Ross Perry, medical director of Cosmedics, says over the years Katie has had a variety of saline and silicone implants, ranging from round and high to a more natural tear-drop shape.
And he warns her surgeries may not be over yet – as she may help to correct scar-damage and encapsulation ,when the breast tissues hardense around the implants.
Dr Perry adds: “The volume of implants she’s using means they can’t go under the muscle, they have to go over – and the skin can only take so much.
“In a few years’ time, she may need to reduce the size of the implants further to take the pressure off the skin in those areas.
“Each time she undergoes any procedure, it’s always a more difficult surgery to do.”
Possible cost: £120,000
Surprisingly, it is Kate’s megawatt smile that may have come at the highest price of all.
Since changing her natural gap tooth smile she had as a teenager by having her teeth capped, her dental work is likely to have become a very costly treadmill, says, Dr Rhona Eskander at Chelsea Dental Clinic www.chelseadentalclinic.co.uk (please include link)
This is because Katie had a full set of caps fitted in 2007 at a cost of £100,000, which means her teeth have been filed down to pegs so that more perfect copies can be fixed on top.
Dr Eskander says: “This is more destructive and teeth are much weaker once they have been cut down.
“The thinner teeth are likely to snap at the gum line and need replacing. ‘You may also need implants to replace the teeth which are unsalvageable.”
Indeed, Katie had admitted that some crowns have broken off while she’s been eating and needed to be replaced ten years later in 2017, and then again in 2019.
Possible cost; £250,000
Katie has long been a fan of sunbeds to turn her skin every shade from honey coloured to deep ebony.
Ten years ago, she revealed she has a session three to four times a week for 15 or 20 minutes, costing about £40 a week, saying: “I cane my body like it’s leather.”
She’s also bought a sunbed for her home, costing around £4,000 but this April she still hit tanning parlours three times in just a week after salons re-opened post lockdown.
Katie also spray-tans herself and since 2012 has used Crazy Angel products – a starter kit can cost around £250.
To complete her look, Katy has also used hair extensions for over 20 years at a cost of £12,000 a year.
Possible cost: £300,000
Katie admits to a long-standing obsession with Botox starting when she was 27, at around £400 a time.
In 2015, she said: “I have Botox every four months and that’s it. I have it down the sides of my eyes – three injections on each side. I’m not really wrinkly anyway, so I probably don’t even need it.
“Botox isn’t a big deal for me: it’s like going shopping.”
As she has got older, Katie has also started to use fillers more.
Cosmetic doctor, Dr Ross Perry says: “In the mid 2000’s, it looks like she got quite a lot of fillers in her cheeks, which slightly changed the shape of her face because it started to narrow her eye area slightly.
“But fillers into the cheeks are only meant to restore what’s been lost through natural ageing, not change the shape of the face.”
Possible cost: £30,000
Katie had not even hit 40 when she went from using botox and fillers to facelifts.
Nearly four years ago, when she was 39, she had a silhouette face lift – in which invisible threads are inserted around the sides of the face and then pulled up to raise sagging cheeks and jawlines.
The following Spring, she was seen at her favourite cosmetic clinic in Brussels where she said the work was corrected.
But it didn’t stop there. In September 2019 , Katie went to Turkey to have a full surgical face lift at the same time as a bottom lift.
She returned again last month (June) so her face could be lifted once again to give her the upward slanting ‘fox eye’ look she loves.
However, as she’s recently said she’s getting treatments free – and gets them at the same time as tweaks to her bottom – she may be spared some of the full £30,000 of normal facelifts.
Dr Ross Perry says: “The thing is Katie is only 43 and a very attractive woman. So it does make me think she’d still look good if she’d done nothing to her face at all.
“It’s now getting to the point where the surgeries are going to have a negative impact on her looks, and I think we are there now. That’s the slightly sad scenario.”
Possible cost: £35,000
Not content with waxing, threading or plucking, in 2012 Katie started tattooing her eyebrows.
Skin care expert and therapist Nicola Russell, founder of skingeek.co.uk (please leave in) says: “By 2012, it looks like she’s had her eyebrows tattooed, and even though they are a great shape and kept within her natural eyebrow shape, often people regret having such bold and dark eyebrows, because as they age, they can make you look older.”
In 2016, she had the fine ink strokes replaced with heavier looking block shapes which Nicola says can look even more ageing on a make-up free face.
Possible cost; £1,600
Even though she had well defined good size lips to start, over the years Katie’s lips have also gone up and down in size.
Amish Patel, Founder of Intrigue Cosmetic Clinics believes Katie started getting them filled in around 2001.
“It was then that Katie changed her natural lip shape and lost the natural cupid bow in favour of a bigger pout.”
By 2004, Amish says her lip line was thinner again after the filler dissolved.
But in 2011 and 2016, she went back to having fuller lips, and in 2017, she also had her lip line tattooed to give the illusion of a fuller pout.
Since then Katie has continued to top her lips up with regular injections, leading her exasperated mum Amy to observe last year that she looked like ‘Daffy Duck.’
Most recently in Turkey Katie also had lip line surgically raised for a more youthful look.
This is a permanent procedure which increases the amount of pink tissue of the upper lips that’s visible to make the lips look fuller.
It also increases how much of the upper middle teeth show.
Dr Ross Perry says: “To maintain the level she’s at probably getting treatments to her lips every four to six months, probably before the last amount of filler has dissolved.
“So that I think that’s why her upper lip shape is constantly growing to the extent where it sticks out when you see it from the side. It creates more of a duck effect.”
Possible cost: £15,000
This was one procedure where one was enough for Katie
She had a rhinoplasty in 2007, costing around £6000 at an LA clinic at the same time as she had her fourth breast enhancement.
Dr Ross Perry says: “Basically it’s a bit narrower over the bridge and the tip is basically smaller as well.”
But it made so little difference, Katie stopped there, saying at the time: “I liked my nose before and now.”
Possible cost: £6,000
Just like her lips Kate’s bottom has also gone up and down in size.
She has not only had operations to increase her butt cheeks, but also to reduce them when she decided they made her look ‘fat.’
And as Katie has declared she is not a fan of the gym, she often combines bum augmentation with liposuction.
Katie first had her bottom lifted in 2017 and 2019, using fat from other parts of her body.
It’s a procedure that normally costs around £5,000 in cheaper-rate Turkish clinics, although Katie may be getting some of her treatments for free in return for publicity
Dr Ross Perry says both multiple bottom lifts and liposuction come with a risk.
“Liposuction and injecting the fat into the buttocks is not a lifestyle choice, or an alternative to not going to the gym because of the infection risk.”
Possible Cost: £20,000
