A mother-of-two who had always longed for larger breasts lived to regret her decision to enhance her cup size by having a boob job.

Stacy, 27, from West Sussex, was left looking like she had four breasts after a botched op meant her own breast tissue came away from the implants.

She also discovered after having the surgery in 2008 that the implants were made from PIP - the non medical grade silicone banned in 2010 due to its high risk of rupturing and link to several deaths. 

Stacy appears on the latest episode of Extreme Beauty Disasters in the hope their expert cosmetic surgeon Mr Vik Vijh can help her.

Speaking of why she had the surgery in the first place, she explained: 'I've always wanted big boobs from the age of 12. I thought that's what people should look like - that beautiful women had voluptuous boobs.'

When Stacy first had her breast augmentation in 2008, she was delighted with the result. 

She said: 'When I had my boobs done I was so excited. I looked down and said "wow". I had waited years for this to happen. 

'They were lovely for two or three years and now they are horrendous.'

The mother-of-two had a consultation with Mr Vijh who explained why she ended up with a deformed cleavage thanks to the implants being put in the wrong position. 

He said: 'Poor old Stacy, her breasts look weird. The reason this has happened is the implants were placed under the muscle. 

'This holds the implants high, but Stacy's own breasts are heavy and they hang low. I will have to put new implants in - but put them in the right place.'

Stacy said the botched operation had completely knocked her confidence and she wished she'd never gone under the knife.

She said: 'Now I would do anything to make them flat. I wear sports bras or support bras so I don't draw attention to them. 

'I would do anything to go back to how I was before I had them done.

'They were saggy but the problems I have had and the way it has made me feel, I would do anything to go back to that and have never had a boob job.

'Now I wouldn't dream of having a sexy night as I just look terrible. It's not attractive or feminine, it's a big mess. I describe it as I look like I have four breasts rather than the usual two as my boobs have fallen away from the implants.'

Stacy had no idea that the implants she was given were the dangerous PIP product until she had them removed by Mr Vijh, who also discovered they had started leaking.

'I'm glad we got them out,' he said after removing them and replacing them with smaller, safer implants in a better position than before.

'Hopefully now she will look much more natural and normal and not like she's had surgery done,' he said after the corrective op.

He was right and after recovering Stacey said: 'Now they are perfect.' 

She added: 'I feel normal again I can wear low cut tops and not worry about an implant sticking out. Now I feel like a woman again.'
