If there is any further evidence needed to avoid going overseas for your plastic surgery needs it’s Sky Wheatley on the latest episode of Trial By Kyle. Sky Wheatley had a botched breast augmentation in Thailand in 2015 and yes, it is still an ongoing concern 3 years later.
If you don’t know the story here it is in summary. Sky Wheatley (previously a Big Brother contestant) was approached by a company that arranges surgery needs overseas for a competitive price.
They asked Sky if she would be interested in collaborating with them, she would receive a free breast augmentation surgery in Thailand in exchange for promoting her results and the company.
It should be noted that it is illegal for a Plastic Surgeon in Australia to offer any form of discount or benefits in exchange for surgery.
Unfortunately for Sky, when she awoke from surgery her implants were what appeared to be varying in size and showed signs of “double bubble.”
Double bubble is when the implant falls below the inframammary crease. As you can see in Sky’s photo post-surgery below, the implant on the left has slipped below the breast crease. There is no way to correct for double bubble without further surgery
Why you should avoid overseas plastic surgery!
There are many companies based in Australia that are designed to arrange all your plastic surgery needs overseas at a competitive price. But at what cost? Common complications that we’ve seen from overseas boob jobs include, infections, haematomas (Collections of blood around the implants) and incompletely healed wounds. Others have results that aren’t obviously bad but they are not happy with the choice of implants or the position, size, quality or symmetry of their scarring.
