A woman desperate for a shapely bottom was left in despair when plastic surgery gave her gigantic implants which kept painfully rotating inside her body.
Jabrena, from Georgia in the US, had implants put in to try and get away from her ‘beanpole’ physique, but the results were not what she wanted.
Instead, she was left with two huge and obvious implants which produced a clear outline underneath her skin.
And, she told surgeons on a new episode of E! TV show, Botched, the implants were so badly fitted they were rotating inside her body, making them misshapen and painful.
The Botched surgeons managed to repair the mishap and give Jabrena the bum she had always wanted.
Jabrena had bum implants because she didn’t like her ‘beanpole’ physique but the procedure was not done well and the cheeks were misshapen as the implants moved around inside her body
Jabrena said: ‘Two weeks after surgery the swelling started to kind of go down and you could see the implant kind of on the side’
Dr Terry Dubrow and Dr Paul Nassif, on E! TV show Botched, took out Jabrena’s giant implants and replaced them with smaller, better shaped ones
‘Two weeks after surgery,’ Jabrena said, ‘the swelling started to kind of go down and you could see the implant kind of on the side. It was like a crease.
‘But, about a month-and-a-half later, the implant flipped.’
She said the implants went on to flip round like this four to five times a week.
The Botched surgeons, Dr Terry Dubrow and Dr Paul Nassif, said the implants had been put in a pocket – the space created inside the flesh for them – which was too large.
Dr Dubrow said Jabrena had ‘implant malposition’ and the pocket of flesh in which the implants had been placed was too big for them
Jabrena’s original surgeon offered to try to fix her posterior for $4,000 (£3,000) but she decided to seek a second opinion on the popular TV show. ‘I just want a little, cute, nice toot butt and not this big honk that I have back here,’ she said
Because of this ‘implant malposition’, they wouldn’t stay in place and were moving around inside her body – something Jabrena described as ‘very uncomfortable’.
Jabrena’s original surgeon offered to try to fix her posterior for $4,000 (£3,000) but she decided to seek a second opinion on the popular TV show.
‘I just want a little, cute, nice toot butt and not this big honk that I have back here,’ she said.
Dr Dubrow described the situation as a ‘butt dilemma’ and said: ‘We certainly want to help you, but we don’t want to restore you to a place that you hate.’
He added: ‘Not only are the implants in a pocket that’s way too big, but they’re in the wrong plane in the pocket, allowing them to flip around too easily.
‘The problem is, if I just take the implants out, she’ll have so much sagging skin and no projection that I’ll be trading one big problem for another even bigger problem.’
Dr Dubrow removed Jabrena’s implants and fluid from her buttocks and replaced them with a smaller, better-shaped posterior.
‘Before my surgery, I had a saggy butt and implants were flipping,’ Jabrena said.
‘But now, thanks to Dr Dubrow, I am finally free of my honk butt and now I finally have that cute toot butt that I’ve always wanted.’
BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFTS COULD BE BANNED IN THE UK AFTER PATIENT DEATHS
Britain’s leading plastic surgeons announced in October they will launch a formal review into the safety of Brazilian butt lifts.
The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS) voted against banning its members from performing the scandal-hit procedure in a meeting this afternoon.
The operation, made popular by the appearance of Kim Kardashian’s larger behind, is believed to cause one death in every 3,000 surgeries.
Leah Cambridge, 29, travelled to Turkey in August last year to have the controversial operation but died from a fat clot that was caused by the surgery
British mother-of-three Leah Cambridge, 29, died from a fat clot caused by having the surgery, which she travelled to Turkey for last August. Mother-of-two Tryce Harry, from Birmingham, died in March last year after going to Hungary for a ‘freebie’ Brazilian butt lift, her inquest was told.
The group, made up of 350 surgeons – most of whom are NHS consultants, debated the procedure at its annual scientific meeting and then voted on whether its members should be banned from giving patients the operations.
The BAAPS is now warning members not to perform buttock fat grafting surgery until a formal review of new evidence on the safety and techniques of the procedure is completed.
It wrote on Twitter: ‘Following an international debate of world leading experts, The BAAPS has today announced its decision to launch a formal review of emerging new evidence into the safety and techniques used for fat-grafting buttock augmentation.’
Paul Harris, president of BAAPS, said: ‘As an organisation dedicated to advancing safety, innovation and excellence in aesthetic plastic surgery, we have a commitment to our patients to deliver the most up-to-date knowledge and research which safeguards our patient’s safety.
‘Anyone thinking of having a fat-graft buttock augmentation should await the emergence of further evidence and BAAPS will be working hard to provide the public with information to help them with informed consent about this procedure.’
