Caroline Stanbury has shared the results of her 'petrifying' face lift with her fans.
The surgery was so bad that she admitted she looked as if she had been 'in a car crash'.
She claimed that the photos were snapped on her 14th day of recovery.
The procedure had taken place in Los Angeles, where she went under the knife with 'no information at all'.
The Real Housewives of Dubai star spoke about her experience on her podcast Uncut and Uncensored, which she hosts with her hubby.
Whilst appearing, she wore giant sunglasses and had her hoodie pulled up.
The socialite said: "I decided to have a face-lift with no information whatsoever. I skipped into that surgery like I was having a mole removed.
"This is LA – so, unlike other places where you're sort of taken to hospital and feel like you're having a medical experience, here you're taken to a back room of an office just as if you're having a filler. They put you to sleep and remove your face.
"I looked like I'd been in a car crash and the car definitely didn't win."
Whatever that means.
Speaking of the ordeal, the mother of three said: "He managed to cut off three inches on my neck and then the full width of my ear from my face.
"The shape of my face is completely wrong for a human: the top half is wider than the bottom half, and my neck is too thick. I have stitches at the front and back of my ear and on my eyelids."
Her reason for going under the knife?
"I wanted to look exactly like me but fresh," Stanbury explained.
"I did my upper lip, my eyelids, where they take off the excess skin because I'm 47. I did lower neck, and my neck is so tight right now.
"I really thought it was a half face-lift and I only had one appointment and paid the money.
"There is no sign of my face in that face – which is petrifying. I wanted to sue my doctor because when you slightly look at your face everything is in the wrong place.
"Obviously after surgery, things swell differently, on each side, nothing looks even, and my neck doesn't move so it's like a tree trunk."
Her hubby admitted to be a little distraught over her transformation: "There are two wives – the one last week and the wife this week – I don't recognise her," he said.
"It was the worst experience of my life. I was crying; I was trying to look for her and find my wife.
"Mentally and emotionally, I've been on the floor. No words can describe how much I'm suffering looking at my wife.
"I don't want my wife to look fake, I want her to look natural."
