  • It's time for us to meet our next guest. Welcome Kelly.

  • So, Kelly, you had this kind of surgery, as well?

  • Do you want to tell us a little bit about it?

  • Well, when I was 17 years old,

  • I had to go to see a doctor.

  • I was a bit different to other young girls

  • because I didn't have a left breast grow.

  • There was no breast tissue there at all.

  • I left it for a little while,

  • thought maybe I just need to grow a bit more.

  • Started getting right breast tissue, but still nothing on the left.

  • So, my mum saw that I was getting down,

  • wasn't interacting with other girls with girl talk,

  • wearing baggy clothes, really down and depressed,

  • not wanting to really do much.

  • So we started seeking doctors' advice.

  • Went to see a surgeon. He agreed to do breast augmentation.

  • But because there was no breast tissue there at all,

  • he had to fit an expander so my skin would stretch without having stretch marks.

  • And with that procedure, it's a little bag gets put

  • inside your breast with a little port underneath your arm

  • and saline solution is slowly put into that bag to expand to the skin.

  • Had that done every six weeks for about two years.

  • Once they'd got to the size

  • that they thought was appropriate for my body,

  • I sat down with the surgeon and he decided,

  • "OK, we're going to remove the expander

  • "and replace the expander with a silicon implant."

  • It was suggested that one was put in the right side,

  • as well, to make them look symmetrical.

  • The procedure went fine. I was over the moon with the results.

  • I felt like I was a normal girl.

  • About four or five years down the line,

  • I started noticing changes.

  • My bras weren't fitting me properly. They felt hard.

  • It got to the point of where I was in excruciating pain.

  • We just actually have a picture of your breasts here.

  • So, the right one is the capsular contracture.

  • That was like a rock.

  • When I lay down, it would hit my chin. Wow.

  • And the left one is what they call a Snoopy's nose,

  • which the implant is there but my breast tissue

  • that would have been there has drooped.

  • It's just like skin hanging from my implant.

  • And so what did you do to correct it? I ended up going to one surgeon.

  • I took my bra off and he just looked at me and went,

  • "I'm going to do the surgery."

  • So he removed the implants, replaced them and this is where I am today.

  • I'm still not happy because they don't look how I want them to look.

  • We do have a picture of your breasts now. But I'm out of pain.

  • So, they're still very different. It's just one of them things.

  • I would like to be able to save and have an uplift.

  • Yeah. But it costs a lot of money.

  • Rachel, how common is something like this?

  • So, capsular contracture does affect some women with breast implants.

  • That capsule closes down.

  • So, you imagine you've got a balloon in a box that's shrinking

  • and it's going to outpouch and cause irregularities.

  • It's not always as far down the line as we've heard.

  • There are various stages.

  • So, there is palpable capsule

  • followed by changing the shape of the breast.

  • And pain is really the very last stage of that process.

  • Well, thank you, Rachel.

  • Kelly, thank you so much for telling your story.

It's time for us to meet our next guest. Welcome Kelly.
