A UK university student has ditched her job as a trainee lawyer to become a model, after using her entire student loan to help pay for £10,000 (NZ$19,500) worth of cosmetic surgery.
Katerina Christodoulou, 21, decided to temporarily turn her back on her legal career after using the cash to help get rid of her “love handles”, according to The Mirror.
Christodoulou, from Loughborough, Leics, decided to use the loan for plastic surgery after her family agreed to support her financially while she completed university.
She says she now loves her new figure and has “temporarily” quit her job as a training lawyer to become a model.
"Not only had I finished uni, but my life was about to change even more and I couldn't wait” she gushed.
"I hated my natural shape, so I had liposuction under my bum, inner thigh, hips and around my knee. I found they were stubborn areas where the fat just wouldn't shift.”
Christodoulou also underwent breast enhancement surgery, paid for by an ex-boyfriend.
"I did think about using the money to put a deposit down on a house, but then I thought why not use the money to make myself happy now?”
However, she’s not quite finished yet – revealing to reporters that she is soon to have a nose job.
"I am going to get my nose job on a finance plan as I haven't managed to save up for it so far…[After that] the next time I'll undergo surgery will be for a face lift when I'm older."
