Fulvia Pellegrino doesn’t mind spending tens of thousands of dollars just to achieve what she deemed as the perfect woman’s body. The 56-year-old transgender woman, from Italy, has undergone various cosmetic procedures and sur-geries costing her more than $76,000.
Her body transformation entailed 150 lip and cheekbone fillers, four breast implants, and two rounds of liposuction. On her bum alone, Fulvia spent $13,000. And there’s no stopping for her. She is planning on going through more sur-geries in her pursuit of the perfect face and body.
SURPSIRINGLY SUPPORTIVE WIFE
Through all of it, she has the full support of her wife, Marisa, who has become more like a sister to her than a wife.Unlike her wife, though, Fulvia’s parents refused to support her plans for body transformation.

They tried getting Marisa to sign a paper agreeing to send Fulvia into a psychiatric institution to make her change her mind.
“It was very hard, when my father pass-ed away they didn’t let us go to the fu-neral because they were ash-amed of us. The only people who accepted me were my brothers,” Marisa said in an interview.
THE START OF HER STRANGE QUEST FOR THE PERFECT BODY
In 2004, against her parents’ wishes, she pursued her goal by having breast implants, a nose job and a facelift.She underwent three more breast augmentations and liposuction. Later, she got numerous fillers in her cheeks and lips.
As her cosmetic sur-geries and procedures began to drain him financially, Fulvia sold her cars, as well as a house in France to pay for the expensive cosmetic sur-geries.
The pair now sur-vives on the wage of Marisa alone, who earns her living working as a holistic therapist.
Despite the economic burden on her part, Marisa is happy to support Fulvia’s desire for achieving the perfect look. They also learned not to mind their neighbors in their town of Peveragno who have shunned them because of Fulvia’s decisions.
