Kim K 'spends thousands on surgery'
Kim Kardashian has reportedly blown $300,000 on cosmetic surgery ahead of her wedding.
The 33-year-old TV star will be walking down the aisle with fiancé Kanye West later this year, and friends say she'll stop at nothing to achieve her ideal wedding look.
It's been reported that Kim has researched many different procedures, including chemical peels and 'face freeze' facials that expose skin to sub-zero temperatures to reduce wrinkles and boost the production of collagen.
"Kim is petrified of looking like an old bride and seems to be on a mission to get her former body back at any cost. In her quest to look perfect, over the last few months Kim has stopped at nothing to reverse the clock and erase any sign that she has had a baby. She has booked procedure after procedure," an insider revealed to British magazine Grazia.
One particular bone of contention for Kim is the fact that she'll be an older bride this time around, compared to her two previous marriages.
She married music producer Damon Thomas in 2000 and NBA player Kris Humphries in 2011.
"Kim has joked that when she marries Kanye she wants to look as youthful as she was for her first wedding when she was 20," the insider continued.
"She was desperate to get rid of the stretch marks she developed with North. Kim is also especially paranoid about her 'grandma' hands and has looked into having Botox injected as well as the laser treatment she enquired about on the show."
Kanye doesn't advocate this behaviour though, and has reportedly banned his wife-to-be from having anything that involves going under anaesthetic.
His mother Donda West died in 2007 following surgery complications that occurred after she underwent breast reduction and liposuction.
