Jodie Marsh has warned against the travails of breast enlargement surgery, recounting her bad experience with it in the past.
The 33-year-old glamour model turned bodybuilder was once happy with her 32DD chest but chose to get an adjustment made after she realised her body was changing.
Advertisement"I initially had a boob job because they were getting saggier as I got older," the Daily Mail quoted her as telling Heat Magazine.
"I'd lie on my back and they'd disappear. To me, they looked hideous.
"But it turned into a nightmare.
Marsh was 29 when she went under the knife and she has never been able to speak out before about the trauma she went through until now.
After being put to sleep and going through the standard procedure, she didn't realise the disastrous effects of the surgery until around seven days later.
"When I woke up, they were so swollen.
"The first dressing was taken off after a week or so - that's when I saw that I wasn't healing.
In pain and barely able to move, Marsh had suffered bleeding and her chest was tearing apart.
She had been given the lollipop procedure in which her nipple was taken off and then the implant is inserted and then the nipple is reattached.
After that the patient is stitched from the under part of the boob up to the bottom of the nipple.
The standard procedure went wrong and she was left distressed and in pain as the stitches began to unravel.
"As the stitches started popping out of my skin, there was no skin to hold the incision together," she said.
"My boobs looked like they were exploding. It was so painful.
"There was green pus coming out of my boobs and they constantly bled.
Now, four years on, Jodie is still mentally and physically scarred as a result of her breast enlargement and admits that it has affected her relationships with men, as she was often too embarrassed to take her top off in front of them.
The red-head is desperate to have her boobs reduced but is too frightened now to go through the process again.
"I wish I'd never had them done.
"People should realise that every boob job has the potential to become a horror story," she added.
