Breast reduction and tummy tuck surgery on Embarrassing Fat Bodies
14 June 2011Last night’s episode of Embarrassing Fat Bodies provided some comfort for women whose overly large breasts cause them discomfort and low self-esteem. Episode two of the new series, which follows the same format as the original Embarrassing Bodies show, saw a range of weight-related problems, including a 21-year-old mother of one with J-cup breasts. The young mum went to the doctors with a problem that had been getting her down for years – her huge breasts. Each one weighed the same as approximately four bags of sugar and caused her to suffer from severe back pain, made it very difficult to find clothes, and stopped her from being able to run around in the park with her son.Breast reduction surgery was recommended as the only treatment and her delight in the resulting D-cup breasts was clear. She looked much more confident and happy, and told doctors that she cried with happiness following the surgery, which she said had changed her life completely. Other patients who featured on the show underwent cosmetic surgery treatments such as tummy tuck surgery to remove excess skin after weight loss.
