My boob job changed my life

stk212563rkeOne in five women in the UK reckons her boobs are her best feature – including those who have had plastic surgery. New research by the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons has found that there were 9,854 breast operations in 2012. Maxine Heasman, co-author of the Good Boob Bible, thinks she knows why.She said: “Fashion dictates the size and shape of the ideal cleavage and that’s something that women across the world have become slaves to. And how you feel about your breasts can affect your self-esteem.” Speaking to the Sun newspaper, Lisa – a 28-year-old nurse from Llanelli – said her breast augmentation procedure gave her a much needed confidence boost. She had implants in June 2010 after losing more than six stone meant her chest shrank to a 32AA. “I never had an issue with my breasts growing up and was a 38C throughout my teens,” she said. “Already two stone overweight before I fell pregnant, I vowed to lose weight. Within four months, I went from 17st to 13st. It took another year to get to nine-and-a-half stone – but my boobs shrank." Lisa's doctor referred her to a consultant for implants because a lack of chest was affecting her self-esteem. She went under the knife at the Prince Phillip Hospital, Llanelli, in June 2010 and woke up two hours later with 34DD breasts. She added: "My confidence came back and I instantly felt more feminine... Since having implants, I’ve started powerlifting. My breasts have made me stronger – literally.”
