A mum-of-two claims she has been left unable to be intimate with her husband after an allegedly botched boob job left her with SQUARE BREASTS.
Katy Jones, 25, says the implants flip over inside her breast, causing intense sharp pains and constant discomfort, which has affected all aspects of her life.
“Now, I have to wear a huge heavy-duty bra 24/7 and I feel like I've just been left to deal with the consequences of mistakes made," Katy, from Nottingham in the UK, said.
"I've been left with sagging boobs that have gone rippled, which isn't meant to happen until ten years in. It's only been three and a half years."
The ex-military chef paid Harley Medical Group AUD$8525 to go from a B cup to a D in March 2010, however by June that year, she was forced to wear a bra constantly after waking up to find the implants had "come loose" inside her chest.
“I work behind a kiosk in a shop and when I bend down to pick things up, I have to hold my chest to stop the implants flipping over," Katy said.
“I bet the customers think 'why is she holding her boobs?'. When they flip I get a sharp shooting pain in my chest and I have to try and turn them over myself."
Three years later, Katy said, she was offered a free corrective operation by the clinic, and went from a D to an F cup to prevent the implants from flipping – much bigger than she had ever planned.
For a second time, she says the implants started to flip over in her chest and despite being a newly-wed, she was too embarrassed to let her husband touch her.
"Since the corrective surgery, when I went up to an F-cup, they have sagged and I'd say that now they're about a DD," Katy said.
Now Katy fears the implants are leaking as they are continually shrinking, and claims that with the tops of her breasts often appear to have a square shape to them.
"They're definitely getting smaller and I have to keep getting measured because they've changed," she said. "That's worried me as well because I'm scared they're leaking or that they'll rupture."
“Getting the surgery is the worst decision I've ever made," Katy said.
“I'm left with less confidence then before I even had implants."
“I can't be intimate with my husband because I'm so self-conscious about them. It affects him too."
Katy contacted Harley Medical Group about the outcome of her surgery however she claims she was told nothing else could be done.
Harley Medical was hit by scandal in 2012 when they deliberately went into administration to avoid the possible multi-million pound payout in legal fees to around 1,700 women who claimed to have suffered faulty implants.
Katy is so concerned about her health and appearance that she tried to contact the NHS to see if they could help.
Katy said: “I spoke to a man from Harley Medical Group and they sent me a letter in the post saying that they have changed to a limited company so they cannot help anymore.
“I've even spoken to [the government] about removing them but they said if they take them out, my chest would be left looking like a 70-year-old's.
“I can't afford to pay $8500 to have another operation – especially if there's a risk the same thing could happen for a third time. I have a mortgage to pay.”
The Harley Medical Group had no comment.
"The Harley Medical Group is committed to providing the best possible levels of care and service to our clients," a spokesperson for the group said.
“We are unable to comment on individual cases, however we are in touch Mrs Jones and are in the process of reviewing her case."
