A model famous for a second place in Brazil's popular Miss Bumbum-competition is fighting for her life in intensive care after a botched cosmetic surgery.

Andressa Urach, is in a 'serious condition' in a hospital in the southern city of Porto Alegre after removing gel from her thighs, which had previously been injected for cosmetic purposes.

The 27-year-old's surgery wounds became infected following a second operation to drain her thighs and she is currently being sedated, her mother Marisete De Favari said.

Miss Urach came second in the 2012 Miss Bumbum competition, which scours Brazil for the most attractive behind in the land.
