Katie Piper is a former model and television presenter from Andover, Hampshire in England.
Katie Piper had hoped to have a full-time career in the media, but in March 2008 in North London, sulphuric acid was thrown at her face by Stefan Sylvestre, a manÂ she met at facebook. Â
The acid attack, which blinded Piper in one eye, was arranged by Katie Piper’s ex-boyfriend, Daniel Lynch. Both Sylvestre and Lynch were arrested and are serving jail time for their crimes.
Almost two years on, Katie Piper had dozens of operations – 32 on her throat alone. She still lives on a mostly liquid diet of protein shakes. But she is determined to be more than just the woman in a Perspex mask.
Here are some of the before and after pictures and photos of Katie Piper about the acid attack on her:
