A middle aged woman may be a victim of severe health risks and even death as a result of her breast implants.
Elizabeth Starr, 44, had an illegal breast augmentation procedure to increase her bra size to an incredible O cup.
The specific kind of implants she has tend to draw fluid from the body and is a potential disaster waiting to happen.
The Mirror reports:
The mum-of-two says her life has been ruined by her super-sized chest .
Elizabeth has undergone 63 corrective procedures to try and fix her boobs.
But doctors say her 44-inch chest could lead to blood clots or infections .
And the only way to save her life is a double mastectomy to remove her breasts.
Elizabeth, from Las Vegas, had a natural breast size of 36D.
But 15-years-ago she had polypropylene breast implants to pump them up to mammoth proportions.
She made a career out of her giant chest – starring in films such as Bustin’ into Las Vegas and Big Boob Strippers.
But now Elizabeth, who is 5ft 6 in and weighs around 123lb, may need her breasts removed to save her life.
Controversial polypropylene implants work by absorbing water and fluid from the body causing the breasts to swell.
This causes continuous expansion of the breast after surgery often leading to extreme breast sizes.
The implants have led to some of the largest breasts ever – but the procedure is rarely seen outside of the adult film entertainment industry due to the risks concerned.
The operation is now banned in the European Union and United States due to health fears.
