Breast Implant Hangs from Woman’s Chest Following Cosmetic Surgery Gone Wrong

June 19, 2013

One woman’s dreams of achieving a more curvaceous figure were left in ruins when she realised the breast implant she had done was hanging out of her chest.

Reports of the breast implant cosmetic surgery gone wrong tell the story of Lauren Yardley, a 25 year old woman who went under the knife to transform her breasts from a size A cup to a DD but experienced her body rejecting one of the implants to the extent that the implant started protruding through the skin.

It became apparent that Lauren had experienced a common symptom of breast augmentation cosmetic surgery going wrong termed capsular contracture in which the body forms a capsule of scar tissue around the implant.

Lauren, who reportedly spent £3,750 on the cosmetic surgery treatment to enhance her figure, experienced cosmetic gone wrong just two months after the surgery recalling she first noticed discomfort she likened to a blister which then developed further until it started coming out of the breast itself.

In what doctors described as a very extreme case of capsular contracture, Miss Yardley’s scar tissue had tightened around the implant to such a degree that it started squeezing out of her body.

Following her experience of cosmetic surgery gone wrong, the nursery worker wants to warn other women of the potential dangers of going under the knife.

She said: “I couldn’t believe it when the implant started coming out of my breast. At first it was like a blister, but then over the next week it started to come out more and more. I did not feel too much pain, just discomfort.

“The doctors at the hospital said they had never seen anything like it – they couldn’t believe I was not in septic shock. I feel very lucky, it could have been a lot worse.”

As part of her ordeal of experiencing cosmetic surgery gone wrong, Miss Yardley had to live with having only one breast for seven months. She had to wait for this length of time after having her breast implant removed before doctors could replace the implant again. In addition Miss Yardley also had to pay an extra £1,000 for the corrective treatment.
