A 24-year-old delivery driver from Birmingham headed to Belgium for cheap breast enhancement surgery earlier this year – but she didn’t quite get what she bargained for. Twice.
Dennie Lees paid £2,375 to have her bust increased from a 34A to a 34F at a clinic in Belgium, but nearly died when her brand new boobs exploded following the surgery.
As if things couldn’t get any worse, after the removal of the first ‘exploded’ implants Dennie got back in touch with the surgery, who performed the original botched up job, to complain – and rightfully fucking so.
To make up for their terrible job the clinic offered her another round of surgery to correct their errors. But surely she didn’t take it? Oh wait. She did.
And guess what? The whole thing happened all over again.
Apparently, as soon as Dennie got back to the UK she felt a ‘ripple’ sensation in her chest, but when doctors checked they found she had become highly infected and yet again removed the implants.
Now Dennie has lopsided breasts but will be appearing on Channel 5’s Body Freaks: Instagram Perfect documentary to explain her reasons for chasing the so called ‘perfect body’.
Recounting the horrendous ordeal which took place in May, Dennie said:
I took my sports bra off and it just gushed out, it was like a tap, it was disgusting. I was so scared. My mum and boyfriend took me to hospital with fluid still pouring out of my breasts.
In A&E I had about five or six doctors around my bed hooking me up to all kinds of monitors and drips. It turned out I had blood poisoning and the nurse told me if I hadn’t have come in when I did I would have died during the night.
I had an operation to remove the left implant so now I have one enhanced breast and one ‘man boob’.
You can hear Lees’ story in a helluva lot more detail on Body Freaks which airs on Channel 5, Thursday November 10, at 10pm
