Alison Chapman's story over at the Daily Mail serves as a warning to all women thinking about going abroad to get their breasts done for cheap. You may just end up with much more than you bargained for.
The 45-year-old had journeyed to Tunisia for the operation, and reportedly suffered a 'horrendous and humiliating' ordeal after the surgery went wrong. Apparently, one of her implants had actually exploded in the shower when she returned home:
'I took a hot shower to try and relieve the pain and was absolutely horrified when my breast burst open. I couldn't believe what was happening to me.'
Yikes! The mother-of-one was rushed to hospital where she underwent surgery to close the wound and fight the infection. She then needed two further operations to replace the implants and repair the scar:
'It's taken three years of reconstructive surgery to repair the wound and reduce the scarring and I now feel more self-conscious than ever before, it's been very humiliating.'
