Sheyla Hershey, a Brazilian model, who was able to achieve her goal to have the largest breast in the world is now in the fighting for her life. Her breasts have got staph infection, according to a report on MyFox Houston website.
During her journey towards her goal of having the largest breast she underwent M-cup implants put into place but unfortunately had to get them removed when she learned that she was pregnant.
The report said that Hershey had undergone more than 30 plastic surgeries, but for the first time she faced complication following her most recent breast augmentation procedure in June, when her youngest child's first birthday was just few days away.
Hershey's new surgeon told her to be more concerned about her life, as Staph infections can enter the bloodstream and can be life threatening. She is also very concerned about losing one of her breasts for which she had to give herself infusions of intravenous antibiotics every twelve hours to fight the infection.
The treatment has however helped her with one of her breast, but as per the doctors, the other one is still in jeopardy. That suggests that she will not only lose both implants, but quite possibly need to have the entire breast removed.
Catering to the need of the hour Hershey was taken for surgery on Tuesday morning to remove the implants.
Hershey says she wants to just be a mother, for which she has experimented with another plastic surgery. She was told by her younger son to reduce her breast size however she is now being forced to do so because of a medical emergency.
