KATIE Price’s obsession with cosmetic surgery is an “addiction” which she may need counselling to overcome, friends fear.
Pals of the model are now terrified she is putting her life in danger with her obsession as she has more and more “needless” work.
And they are particularly worried that the 41-year-old is undergoing her treatment abroad and refusing to follow doctor’s orders by resting afterwards.
“It is as if Katie has an addiction to going under the knife,” one concerned pal told Sun Online.
“It is becoming so obsessive and it is clear she needs some help – now. Katie is forever saying that she looks in the mirror and only sees the next thing that needs fixing.
“It doesn’t matter how many of us tell her she looks fantastic she won’t listen.
“If she can’t see it and she won’t listen to anyone then we are begging her to get a bit of help.”
The Sun Online told last week how mates fear the star is in the grip of a midlife crisis.
Her pals’ fears were heightened last month when pictures emerged of her ex, Kris Boyson, tending to her by the poolside on a holiday in Turkey just hours after she went under the knife.
It was reported Katie’s stitches from a boob job had leaked fluid – putting her at risk of infection.
Reports later claimed she’d done further damage to her wounds by romping with builder Charles Drury, who she dumped Kris for.
She is now believed to have moved her new toyboy lover into her home.
Our source added: “It was horrible to see Katie in that state so far from home.
“You read all the time about people going away for plastic surgery and dying in this clinics.
“That’s why everyone is worried sick that Katie’s is taking needless risks with her body.”
Only last year Katie vowed never to go under the knife again saying a botched face-lift had left her looking “f***ed up”.
“I absolutely hated it… the only thing I could do to sort it out was to remove the threads and then have a face lift. I never ever wanted a face lift at my age – I would have had one in years to come, but I didn’t want one this young,” she confessed.
But the pledge didn’t last long and just months later she was undergoing more work.
She has spent hundreds of thousands on surgery during the past 25 years. Over that time she has had nips, tucks, implants and injections that has resulted in a face and body that has little to no resemblance to her former self.
From breast enhancements and reductions to botched face lifts, Brazilian butt lifts, tummy tucks and traumatic corrective surgery, she has left no stone unturned in her body transformation.
“I get my forehead and around my eyes Botoxed every six months and I love it. You can’t beat it,” she once admitted.

And she has even filmed herself getting lip fillers in Manchester, sharing the results of her bleeding mouth on social media and praising her filler lady as “the best”.
She’s also spent a small fortune on her gnashers over the years, having them whitened, tightened and completely shaved down.
She once revealed she’d spent more than £120,000 on having the perfect smile, explaining that she’d needed urgent work on her teeth after a childhood accident.
And she has spoken in the past about how she tends not to wear makeup day to day unless she has an event to go to – but she keeps up her grooming by getting her eyebrows tattooed on instead.
