Anyone that watches Botched knows you don't just go to any random doctor to get some plastic surgery that you've never heard of or researched before. Of course, some people never learn or had their surgeries before the show even aired so there's a steady stream of tragic botched cases to work through. Next up on E!'s hit show is 44-year-old Allegra Cole, a woman who got her first breast implants 11 years ago and learned how to "grow" them to be even bigger.

At 800 cc's (cubic centimeters), her first implants were big, but nothing compared to the size she has now. In tonight's episode, Cole admitted, "I was getting that boob greed a little bit. I wanted them to be fuller, bigger."

Conveniently for her, Cole discovered a website where men would help women get breast implants, and she ended up having them pay for larger implants (1,700 more cc's), which she said "felt like an elephant was on my chest."

Even though those implants were huge and heavy, Cole wanted bigger ones, which is why she's on Botched now. Cole ended up finding a doctor who helped her grow (!!!) her own implants to be as big as she wanted.

"I found out about a doctor that did tissue expanders, where I could expand with saline and grow my implants," she said on the show. "I love being in control. And I love being in control of my own breast size. I was able to double the size to about 4,000 cc’s in about five months."

But, because this is Botched, not everything went according to Cole's plan. Cole's implants are now up to 4,600 cc's and weigh more than 20 lbs., and, predictably, she needs some help because they're super lopsided.

Somehow Cole's right implant slumped down and became less firm than her left one, so now Cole wants the doctors to fix her uneven breasts, but still maintain their size.

Cole's episode of Botched comes on tonight at 9 p.m. on E! so be sure to tune in if you want to see how it all turns out.
