American actress Denise Richards has admitted to undergoing three boob jobs. The 38-year-old star of Wild Things and James Bond film The World is Not Enough made the confession in an interview with US radio DJ Howard Stern.Richards underwent her first breast enlargement before her Hollywood career got off the ground. She said: "I was 19, and my roommate had the best boobs ever and she had just had hers done. I was flat as a board and I thought, 'Whoa, you can just buy them?'" After her first operation, the actress underwent another bout of breast surgery to modify her shape. However, her experiences highlight the importance of ensuring that potential breast enlargement patients choose a breast-size that is appropriate to their figure. In Richards' case, her lean frame was not suited to a D-cup. As a result, she underwent breast reduction surgery after she finished filming The World is Not Enough. While Richards is now pleased with her shape, her story exposes the issues associated with having surgery too young or without sufficient consultation. Ethical cosmetic surgeons will never operate on teenagers under the age of 18 and the vast majority will ensure they are fully in tune with a patient's desires before operating. Richards has two children - Sam, aged four, and Lola, three - with ex-partner actor Charlie Sheen. Sheen may be no stranger to cosmetic surgery either, with many experts speculating that he may have had a nose job. Sheen's brother - fellow actor and ex-Brat Pack member Emilio Estevez - is also known for being a cosmetic surgery fan, and is widely thought to have undergone rhinoplasty, a brow lift and used injectable fillers like Botox.
