The gorgeous artist, whose perfect body is an asset she depends on professionally and takes great pride in, reportedly underwent a breast augmentation at the young age of 21 because her drug habit left them looking appalling.
After realizing that her habit, which she says spiraled out of control, left her body looking ravaged and unattractive, Dita kicked the habit and turned to cosmetic surgery to fix the damage that had been done.
In an interview with News of the World, the sometimes fetish movie actress said: “I was a bit of a party girl the early ’90s and used LSD and ecstasy.
“Eventually my weight dropped to [91 pounds] and I looked terrible, so I gave up drugs.
“My breasts never recovered, so when I was 21 I had 32D implants. Now I’m a healthy [114 pounds].”
Often hailed as the “Queen of Burlesque”, Dita von Teese is probably most famous for her routine dancing in a large martini glass. Von Teese, born as Heather Sweet, who has admitted to enjoying several fetishes and has even acted in pronographic movies, got her start as a stripper when she was just 18.
She married her long-time fan, shock rocker Marilyn Manson in November 2005. The pair separated when von Teese filed for divorce in January 2005 due to “irreconcilable differences”.
