Sylvia Telles, Cy Manifold, Monsueto - January 1964



Sylvia Telles tells she went to see Dr. Urbano Fabrini and had major cosmetic surgery done on her on 19 October 1963 at Clinica Pio XII where she stayed for 2 days and then more than a month at home to get over. 

Here's what she says about the operation: "Não fiz apenas 4 operações, fui mais longe: fiz seis! Afilei o nariz, amendoei ligeiramente os olhos, perdi o duplo queixo (papinho), tirei um pedaço de osso da bacia e enxertei no queixo. Enfim, pode-se dizer que fiz uma recauchutagem geral!

'Revista do Radio' #576 - 1960.
