After hiding the desire to changes sex for four decades, an Italian transgender woman dropped more than $76,000 on surgery to get the ideal female body.
56-year-old Fulvia Pellegrino from Peveragno has struggled through round after round of intensive cosmetic surgeries in order to get the “perfect” female body she has now.
In order to look like a woman, Pellegrino endured:
- 150 lip and cheekbone fillers
- 4 breast implants
- 2 series of liposuction
Pellegrino was born with the name Fulvio and was completely supported by her wife, Marisa, throughout the transition.
Reportedly, at 15-years-old, Pellegrino recognized her true identity. But because her family were conservative and religious, she felt like she needed to keep her truth hidden for decades.
“I NEVER MANIFESTED MY WILL BECAUSE IT WAS IMPOSSIBLE WITH MY DAD,”PELLEGRINO SAID, ACCORDING TO DAILY MAIL. HER FATHER WAS A RECOGNIZED MEMBER OF THE CLERGY.
“HE HAD THREE SONS AND HE WANTED THREE SONS ONLY” SHE ADDED.
Her true gender identity was even hidden from Marisa when they met 32-years ago.
FULVIA PLAYED UP HER MASCULINITY IN PUBLIC BUYING GUNS AND LUXURY CARS.
In 2000, Fulvia told Marisa that she wanted to transition.
“Obviously Marisa lost it for a moment, it is not something that is easy to accept,” Pellegrino said. “Today, Marisa and I are nothing more than two sisters. We live together, we argue like two normal people but not like husband and wife.”
Pellegrino’s parents were terrified of the truth.
“My dad asked my wife to sign a paper to send me into a psychiatric institution to make me change my mind,” Pellegrino said.
Pellegrino was banned from her own father’s funeral.
She sold her guns, cars, and house to pay for the sex change.
“I am now the clown of Peveragno,” Pellegrino said. “They point at me, they talk about me, they start inventing stories about me that I am a prostitute. My friends have all vanished — they didn’t accept me.”
Despite the lack of support, Pellegrino can’t wait to get the perfect body she desires.
“I want to look like Allanah Starr, an American transgender [adult] star,” she says. “I won’t stop here, I want to go ahead because it’s not perfect. If I reach perfection, maybe I will stop.”
