 'Jordan Syndrome' Behind Exploding Boob Job Epidemic: Experts

Doctors have blamed the Jordan effect behind the surge in boob jobs over the years.

The number of fake breasts exploding or leaking has nearly trebled in four years, figures show. There has been a ten per cent rise in the last year alone.

This is being called the Jordan Syndrome, after Katie Price - real name Jordan - who has had at least three operations as she rose to a 32FF - before having more manageable 32D implants fitted.

"There is the Jordan Syndrome, where some women want bigger and bigger breasts. The bigger they are, the more problems are likely to occur," the Sun quoted top plastic surgeon Douglas McGeorge as saying.

He also blamed cheap implants and overseas clinics that may or may not be following health standards.

"Some people have no idea who is treating them or the standards of the hospital equipment," McGeorge said.

"Some implants are prone to failure. The cheap option is not always the best," he added.

Patients have complained of wrinkled boobs, painful swelling and implants that go stiff.

Celebs to suffer include former Atomic Kitten Kerry Katona, who had burst stitches around her G-cup implants in 2005 and actress Tara Reid was left with uneven boobs, scars and bumps.
