Katie Price blamed for bust implant boom

entertainment Updated: Dec 05, 2011 00:36 IST

Model Katie Price, who has undergone at least three operations to get fuller breasts, has been blamed for a boom in the number of women wanting to undergo bust enhancement surgeries.

A 10% rise in such surgeries has been seen in the last year, thanks to women wanting to go for oversized implants and at cheap foreign clinics, as per thesun.co.uk.

“There is the Jordan Syndrome, where some women want bigger and bigger breasts. The bigger they are, the more problems are likely to occur,” said plastic surgeon Douglas McGeorge.

“Some people have no idea who is treating them or the standards of the hospital equipment. Some implants are prone to failure. The cheap option is not always the best,” he added.

There were 206 breast enhancement disasters in 2010. Out of them, 153 of them were ruptures. This compares with 73 in 2006. Patients have complained of wrinkled breast, painful swelling and implants that go stiff.
