As a very small AA cup, Londoner Julie Roberts had always wanted bigger breasts, so she went in search of some new boobs.
Julie did months of research, so, after attending an initial consultation in 2007, she was confident when she submitted to the knife just six days later.
Two weeks after the operation Julie noticed that her breasts weren’t sitting right, and upon her complaint, she found out that her surgeon had falsified her records to blame the problem on a medical condition that she didn’t have. Julie returned to the clinic on various occasions until her surgeon agreed to correct her surgery, but the revision didn’t go well and Julie was forced to undergo yet another operation two days later. She has since found out that during her revision surgery her silicone implants were replaced with cheap alternatives called PIPs, which are now all but banned in the UK.
Two years on, Julie has been left with a condition called ‘double bubble’, where the skin has been pulled away from the muscle in her breasts and her implants are bulging out from underneath. She is taking legal action against the clinic, but, in the meantime, is passionate about changing the way the cosmetic surgery industry operates.
