She said: ‘I was being very discreet coming to Thailand as I didn’t tell anyone. I am in a Bangkok plastic surgery hospital where I’ll spend two weeks in quarantine, and then I’ll have the surgery.
‘I’m going to be staying in Thailand nearly two months. I’ve literally just arrived. I can’t reveal what the surgery is yet, but it’s a life-changing one.’
Shortly before flying she gave Instagram followers an update while insisting the nature of the trip would remain a secret until further notice.

Addressing fans from an empty departure lounge, she said: ‘I’m at Heathrow Airport all by myself, there’s no one else here. I’m going away to somewhere nice, exotic and apparently very hot right now.’
The trip comes after Jessica revealed she was called a monster live on an Italian TV show, by a plastic surgeon she branded ‘unprofessional’.
The TV personality spoke to MailOnline about the comments and insisted she ‘will not be humiliated’ after the slur.

She said: ‘The Italian TV show Live – Non è la D’Urso presented by Barbara D’urso celebrated my participation with a special interview when all of the sudden, live a plastic surgeon said that I am a monster.’
She added: ‘I stopped the TV show live and answered back, saying: “How dare he brand me a monster. It is also unprofessional for a surgeon use such words towards anyone’
After years of publicising her love of surgery, Jessica – formerly known as Rodrigo Alves before transitioning in 2019 – conceded that while her life is not to everybody’s taste, she should still be respected.

She said: ‘I appreciate that my personal life choices and my looks don’t please everyone but I believe that I look better and I feel better and happy now…
‘For years I was hiding my self behind the former Ken Doll and already having feminization small surgeries in secrecy thinking about and planing my transition.’
Speaking about her transition, Jessica added: ‘I had few surgeries to became more feminine also it has been 1 year that I am on intensive hormone therapy which changed me a lot…
‘I am now persecuting the surgeon who branded me monster on the show. I shall never allow anyone to humiliate me in person like that and nor shall any other trans woman should be discriminated.’
