Jessica Alves has posed for her final gorgeous photoshoot before undergoing a seven hour surgery, which she promises will change her face drastically.
The TV personality, 38, will undergo the painstaking operation on Sunday, where Dr Kamol in Bangkok will break her chin and jawbones as well as modify her vocal cords for a more feminine sound, before she undergoes her third full face and neck lift.
Speaking to MailOnline ahead of the big day while sharing exclusive pictures, she explained how she gets ‘bored’ of having the same face after two or three years but insisted she’s not addicted to going under the knife.
‘The last time you’ll see this face’: Jessica Alves has posed for her final shoot before having her chin shaved, vocal chords modified and face lifted in a painstaking SEVEN hour surgery
Having spent £800,000 on a total of 78 cosmetic surgeries over the years, she began: ‘My face is going to change a lot. A lot, a lot, a lot, really.’
Jessica – who underwent gender reassignment surgery in 2021 – continued: ‘Obviously because I was born a male, my jawline and chin is a little bit thicker so the doctor is going to break and cut that bone.
‘He’s going to slice it up. My chin and jawline is going to become very small, it’s going to make my face much smaller and much more feminine. That’s the aim of the surgery, become much more feminine.
‘And then I’m having a full face lift. It’s going to be my third face lift. I’m turning 39 in July and that’s gonna make me look much younger. I’m very excited for that.

Candid: Speaking to MailOnline ahead of the big day, she explained how she gets ‘bored’ of having the same face after two years but insisted she’s not addicted to going under the knife
‘And all that’s gonna be happening at the same time as the voice feminisation surgery. So all the surgeries together are going to last seven hours, I’m gonna be under general anesthesia for seven hours.
‘Between now and then, I’m just preparing myself for it. I’ve finished all my exams so just taking vitamins and I’m quite excited.’
The reality star revealed she sees her ops as an ‘evolution of her being’ since she gets ‘bored’ after ‘two or three years’ have passed with the same face.
She said: ‘I’ve spent more than £800,000 on all my surgeries throughout the years and I have always seen my surgeries as an evolution of my being.
‘Me, as a human being, and I think that surgery after surgery, obviously I feel different, I look better. I also get bored as well.

Explaining: Jessica continued: ‘And all that’s gonna be happening at the same time as the voice feminisation surgery. So all the surgeries together are going to last seven hours’
‘So after two or three years of looking at the same face in the mirror, I go, “Hang on, it’s time to switch and make it different.” That’s the difference between me and most people.’
The former Celebrity Big Brother contestant went on to slam the naysayers for criticising her, revealing she is ‘unapologetic’ and it is ‘her prerogative’ to do what she wishes.
She said: ‘I’m brave, I’m strong, I’m unapologetic and I go for what is right for me. I do get criticised a lot by people, they say I am addicted to plastic surgery.
‘No, I’m not addicted to plastic surgery, I just have a high sense of self worth. People say I have body dysmorphic disorder… I don’t have it.
‘What I have had is gender dysmorphic disorder, which has been fixed ever since I had my gender reassignment surgery, this is my prerogative so wish me luck.’

The OnlyFans star previously revealed she was considering having voice feminisation surgery, having come out publicly as transgender in 2020.
She had told MailOnline: ‘I think that it is the only thing that gives away the fact that I am a transgender.
‘My body and looks are very feminine but when a guy chats to me at a bar, or gym the third question is, “Are you trans?”
‘I say, “Yes I am,” then the guy walks away. It is very frustrating.
‘Also, when I answer the phone people refer to me using male pronouns and that feels like a knife in my heart.’
Voice feminization surgery
What is voice feminization surgery?
Voice feminization surgery is a procedure to raise the pitch of your voice or make it sound higher. Surgery changes the length, size or tightness of your vocal cords.
Your vocal cords (also called vocal folds) are bands of soft tissue in your larynx (voice box). They control the pitch of your voice. They vibrate when you take in air. Surgery changes the folds so they vibrate differently and make higher sounds when you speak.
Are there different types of voice feminization surgery?
There are different approaches to voice feminization surgery, including:
Anterior glottal web formation shortens the length of your vocal cords. This is the most common type of voice feminization surgery. It’s also called the Wendler glottoplasty.
Cricothyroid approximation (CTA) increases the tightness of your vocal cords.
Laser reduction glottoplasty (LRG) decreases the mass, or size, of your vocal cords.
A laryngologist performs voice feminization surgery. This type of healthcare provider specializes in surgery for the voice box and throat.
