America’s Next Top Model‘ all-star winner Lisa D’Amato is in recovery following a “freak accident” that tore up her face after shooting a movie in Colorado.

D’Amato posted pictures following the accident, telling fans on Facebook that “The sound girl & I did a duo- stunt/ gymnastics move. She accidentally lost her balance and dropped me at speed while she was holding me upside down on my head. Then she fell on top of me. It was a freak accident that happened in 3 seconds. I’m lucky to have my teeth and not break my neck. I then got rushed to the hospital, got X-rays, then got rushed to an on-call plastic surgeon. I split my nose in 3 places, smashed all the cart-ledge in the tip of my nose, and broke the bridge. I also collected ton of other lacerations on my forehead, lips, chin and above the lip area. Now it’s day 4 and I’m healing like a champ”.

In spite of the graphic injuries, D’Amato seems to be taking the wounds in stride, posting that she expects to look “perfect” in a couple of weeks.

“It’s only DAY 4 & look how fast I’m healing! I’m still puffy and all types of jacked up but the improvement is huge in just 48 hrs. #AMAZING #SURGERY #recovery now you guys don’t get to see my face & new nose till it’s perfect in a couple wks! Love you all and thank you with all my heart for the support. Day by day baby! ….✌❤”.
