A 25-year-old woman is to go under the knife again in a bid for the perfect cleavage – despite almost dying from a botched boob job which made her breasts EXPLODE.
Dennie Lees was hospitalised five times and left with lop-sided breasts as a result of a cut-price procedure in Belgium last year.
She paid £2,375 to have her bust increased from 34A to 34F at a clinic after a friend recommended them.
But Dennie claims that days after going under the knife at the Atlas Kliniek in Miese, near Brussels, on September 2 last year she suffered a fever and her breasts burst.
She was rushed to Sandwell Hospital in West Bromwich, West Mids., where doctors told her she had blood poisoning.
Surgeons then operated on her the next day to remove the 800CC implants.
She complained to the clinic, run by Belgium Surgery Services, who offered to perform a second implant operation for free.
Dennie agreed and returned in May when she went under the knife to have the breast implants fitted again.
But when she returned to the UK she felt a “ripple” sensation in her left breast and drove herself to hospital.
When doctors opened the stitches they discovered it was infected and she was transferred to City Hospital in Birmingham where she had the implant removed.
She has now been left with an uneven chest after she decided to leave her right implant in.
And despite her terrifying ordeal, Dennie has since met with two consultants in the UK to discuss a further boob job to even up her wonky breasts.
Today (Fri) Dennie, who lives with her boyfriend Ed, 26, in Great Barr, Birmingham, said she was still determined to get the perfect cleavage.
She added: “My boyfriend is really against it after what happened but I’m determined to get them done.
“I think if I go private over here with somebody more reputable then I will be fine. I’ve met with two consultants already so hopefully it will be sorted soon.
“Hopefully, it will be third time lucky.
‘It is something I always wanted. I thought I would feel like a woman if I had bigger boobs.
“I wanted to sue the clinic but lawyers have told me it would cost so much in legal fees it might not be worth my while.”
Dennie’s medical troubles started eight months ago when she decided to go under the knife to try and boost her confidence.
She added: “It was about nine days after the surgery and I felt a ripple when I was walking.
“At first I brushed it off but I woke up the next day with the worst fever I had ever had.
“I took my sports bra off and it just gushed out, it was like a tap, it was disgusting. I felt like I had been butchered.
“I was so scared. My mum and boyfriend took me to hospital still with fluid pouring out of my breasts.
“They rushed me through A&E and I had about five or six doctors around my bed hooking me up to all kinds of monitors and drips.
“It turned out I had sepsis and the nurse told me if I hadn’t have come in when I did I would have died during the night.
“The first thing the next morning I was back in theatre having my breast implants removed.
“I woke up with drains still removing all of the leftover fluid. I was in hospital for about five days but I think I cried the whole time I was there.
“After I went back to Belgium to have the surgery done again, as soon as I landed on the plane back in England I felt a ripple in my left breast.
“Rather than going home I came straight back to hospital and when one of the doctors opened the stitches it poured with puss.”
Delivery driver Dennie now wants to raise awareness and issue a warning to young women who are considering going abroad for cheaper surgery.
She added: “I wouldn’t say to people not to have surgery but just to be very careful where they go because as much as it’s cheaper to go abroad, it’s not always best.”
