Surgery Obsessive Spends $76,000 In Quest For Perfection

FULVIA: No, I am not happy with my “perfect body”, because it is not perfect. Perfection
is something else. COMM: Transgender Fulvia Pelegrino has spent 80,000 Euros over the last 15 years transforming
her body through surgery. FULVIA: Plastic surgery is not a drug but it’s something people like me need. I am
not happy with my face and other parts of my body. 00:42
COMM: And her wife Marisa has stood by her. MARISA: Our relationship transformed slowly, also because Fulvia transformed slowly. All
the things we’ve done together, doctors, therapies help me to understand what was happening
to her. COMM: 56 year old Fulvia who was born Fulvio had wanted to transition for years but didn’t
feel able to until she was married and in her 40’s. FULVIA: I realised it at a very young age, around 15 years old, but I didn’t have the
opportunity to do it because I was living in a very religious family. It was difficult
to grow up with a body which is not yours and that you try to mask in every way, behaving
in a macho way, drinking beer, buying an American 4×4 and going shooting to make you feel like
a man when instead you understand it is a mask, so you need to throw it away and become
what you are. I was feeling trapped in my body. I had a hard time and I would drink
to forget it. I understood I had to talk to Marisa and undertake this path. COMM: And after getting over the initial shock Marisa was very understanding. FULVIA: In 2000 I told Marisa that I wanted to start the transition, but I didn’t know
how complex it would be. Obviously, Marisa lost it for a moment, it is not something
that is easy to accept. We went to a psychologist. Marisa being very open-minded only had one
session, she didn’t find it too hard to accept me. MARISA: In the end I’ve asked myself: What is more important? What is outside or what
is inside of the person? I realised at the time that I loved the person so it wasn’t
changing anything. COMM: But some things in their relationship have changed. FULVIA: Today Marisa and I are nothing more than two sisters. Also, Marisa’s not gay
and she wouldn’t have sex with me because I have boobs, and even though I still have
my male attributes they are “retired” due to the hormone therapy. We live together.
We argue like two normal people but not like husband and wife. MARISA: Of course the physical aspect is important, this is why we don’t have any sexual rapport
as wife and husband but we are more like 2 sisters. There is no attraction any more because
it is not Marisa and Fulvio, it is now Marisa and Fulvia. But there is affection. COMM: And while her brothers have been as accepting as Marisa, Fulvia’s parents were
not supportive. FULVIA: When I told my parents what I was, my mother pushed me away and my father asked
Marisa, my wife, to sign a paper to send me to as psychiatric institution to make me change
my mind. It was hard, truly very hard. When my father died, we were not allowed to go
to the funeral because they were ashamed of us. COMM: Now Fulvia is determined to become the woman she feels she is meant to be even if
it means more surgery. FULVIA: I won’t stop here, I want to continue with plastic surgery because this is not perfect.
If I reach perfection maybe I will stop.


  1. This is one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen if everyone in the world was like this it would be a better place

  2. Ewwwwwwwww I’m sorry ewwwwwww I cant help it ewwwwwwww her face ewwwwwwwwww omg it’s scary ewwwwwww her but. Can she even talk ewwwwww

  3. The wife gives the saying "stand by your man" a whole new meaning. I laughed about the male attributes being retired.

  4. Oh good God….I am a trans woman but I look convincing …not a fuckin caricature of a woman…she looks so awful …and those lips 🤤

  5. Omg 😱😱😱😱😳😳😳….make it stop now🙅🏽‍♀️🙅🏽‍♀️🙅🏽‍♀️

  6. I know its difficult retards, but try to rise above the obvious here. Fine with me. Go for your dream girl.

  7. I can't quite wrap my head around why she's still over-lining – and with a darker color – those…um…I guess they're supposed to be lips? I'm sorry. Come ON! Just as people with small thin lips (me) use makeup to enhance what's missing, so too can people with an over abundance of something use make up to DEEMPHASIZE. Put some foundation over the entire lip area, start halfway down the outer rim and line with the SAME EXACT COLOR AS THE LIPSTICK you plan to wear. Then fill in. Anything would look better even if everyone can tell what she's doing. ANYTHING. How does she have a job? Earning money for more surgery? That wife isn't being a good friend at all if she's supporting this sickness. Transition all you want but my god do it responsibly. And sue your surgeon.

  8. How was he so desperate that he didn’t see what he made himself into? Thought Italians at least had a better sense for style and design..
    Sorry for you, Fulvio/a…


  10. Despite her appearance she seems like a very sweet person. They both do. I'm really glad she had someone like Marisa in her corner to help her.. But sis shoulda sued whoever did her lips. If someone did that to somebody I loved WE 👏 WOULD 👏 BE 👏 FIGHT 👏 ING 👏

  11. I wish Barcroft would do a whole episode on straight women, or straight men, who were married to their partner only to find out years later they wanted to transititon. I would love to hear their stories.

  12. He was so nice when he was young. I know it's hisher decision but he ruined himself, he ruined how he was created..ik I may sound weird but nvm

  13. Everything is good but her lips are a bit on the thin side she might want to get injections on those to grow them more…
