 Woman Removes World's Largest Breast Implants After Severe Infections

Brazilian born housewife Sheyla Hershey, who is widely known for her large M cup breast implants, has had to undergo surgery to remove them after she suffered severe infections.

Hershey, 30, has been battling to save her implants for the past three months, but unfortunately the infection has become so bad that she has had to remove them and most of her own breast tissue too.

She revealed that her surgeon discovered during surgery that most of her tissue was too damaged to save, and tried to save just enough to attempt reconstructive surgery within three or four months.

Hershey, who tried to achieve fame by having the largest breasts in the world, underwent surgery in Richmond, Texas, but she has been running a high fever and cannot seem to fight off infections.

Now an infectious disease expert and a cosmetic surgeon are monitoring her condition.

"She was definitely very critical," MyfoxHouston quoted infectious disease expert Dr. Shazia Gill as saying.

Hershey's most recent breast implant surgery took place in Brazil in June 2010, after which she became very sick with staph and strep infections that have been threatening not only her breasts, but her life too.

Dr. Ron Bucek, a cosmetic surgeon, has agreed to help her, and Hershey says it was very difficult to find a doctor who would agree to help her.

She believes it is because she was so sick, and she also felt like there could be a lot of legal ramifications involved since she underwent surgery in Brazil and not in the U.S., where the size of her implants are illegal.

Because of the severity of the infections, doctors have been closely monitoring Hershey twice a week, but even with all the medical intervention her body hasn't been able to ward off the infection.

Hershey has finally come to terms with her illness and says that she is finally ready for all the implants to be removed.

"I decided to go smaller-a lot smaller. I just want a normal size like a housewife has," she said.

"I know it's going to be a lot of pain on me because I love to have them, but I realize that my family comes first and I love my daughter and son and they come first.

"Even though I love to have huge breasts, I don't know why, I just addicted to it; I'm going to try to live without it.

"Hopefully I will be done then and be happy and just running around with my kids! Just have my back life, my life back!" she added.
