An influencer has had the size of her butt reduced after regretting the cheap bum lift she had when she was 19.
Sophie Elise, 25, a singer from Oslo, Norway, spoke publicly last year about how much she disliked her large booty.
She regularly posts sexy snaps on Instagram, @sophieelise, where she models swimwear for her 445,000 followers.
The young woman had flown to Turkey when she was a teenager to get an impulsive “cheap” butt lift.
She had no consultation for the surgery nor any follow-up appointments.

The social media star said: “When I was 19 I decided to have it kind of randomly, a friend of mine was going to Istanbul to have a surgery and I just thought I might as well have done something since I was going with her.
“That’s such a dumb way to think, I know, but I was 19 and had no cares in the world.
“I had already been to the same clinic once before, and trusted them, so I decided to get buttock-implants.”
However, Sophie regretted her decision as the results looked “unnatural”.
She also worried about how she would when she got older and suffered from pain when sitting down and sleeping.
Sophie said: “I could feel from the beginning that something with my surgery didn't feel right.
“It always hurt to sit, sometimes it would hurt to move.
“It was this weird feeling, almost as if you put a bag of ice on your skin and it starts to hurt because of the cold.”
The young woman couldn’t see a surgeon in Norway, where she lives, as butt lifts are a rare procedure there.
Last year, Elise decided to have the surgery reversed in Los Angeles, California.
Shockingly, when she woke up her surgeon told her that she had had breast implants inserted into her buttocks.
She continued: “I did my research and waited until December 2019, where I went to a guy in LA who is supposed to be the best at buttock-surgeries.
“He took one look at me and told me I might have breast implants in my bum.
“And sure enough, when he had surgery on me, that was confirmed.
“I don't think it was a mistake done by the clinic, but something they did on purpose to save money, maybe?”
The influencer now urges women to do more research before getting any cosmetic procedures.
Sophie added: "There is such a difference to my body now!
“I wish people would do more research before jumping into plastic surgery.
"Cheaper is not better!”
She continued: “When I went to Turkey, I paid one quarter of the price that my corrective surgery costs, but all that money ‘saved’ was not worth it in any way.
“With my first surgery I had no consultation with the surgeon before, no follow-up etc, – but with my corrective one they did two consultations, spoke to my doctor in Norway, did my blood-work, checked me after a week, etc.
“None of those things happened with my first surgery. I would never ever want anyone to get cheap surgery done abroad just because ‘that's what they see on Instagram’.
“It's cheap for a reason.”
