Now Magazine \\\'I don\\\'t think of myself as
15 April 2008
�My first memory is of my dad desperately trying to squeeze me into a white dress. I was four years old and couldn�t get it over my potbelly. By my twenties, I weighed 15� st., had no confidence and my self esteem was at rock bottom. Two years ago, a friend asked me to be her bridesmaid, but I�d put on so much weight that on the day I couldn�t get into the dress. We let out all the seams, but it was so tight that I bled under my arms. That spurred me on to lose 9st. over the next 18 months, going from 18st. 12lb to 9st 10lb. But losing weight left my breasts looking like empty sacks. I couldn�t bear to let my fianc� Lee touch them and I hated how they looked. Last November, I paid �5250 for a surgical uplift. I didn�t feel frightened - I just couldn�t wait to get it done. After the op, I peered under the bandages and was delighted to see that I had a pert cleavage for the first time in years. The difference is amazing. I still catch sight of my boobs in the mirror and think: �Wow, check them out.� I�d definitely like more work done, perhaps a tummy tuck , a nose job and eyelid surgery. It�s taken a long time not to think of myself as �fat Kate�, but at last I�m confident in how I look. I know I�m not Naomi Campbell, but I�m finally happy in my own skin.� Read more about breast uplift procedures and our cosmetic surgery guide.
