Mia Khalifa provides fans with update after surgery to repair breast 'deflated' by hockey puck
We can all breathe again, folks: Mia Khalifa has given us all a much-needed update about the status of her chest, after a unfortunate incident caused the former adult film star - who was voted the most-viewed adult actress on the website Pornhub before her retirement - damage in one of her breasts.
While embarking on her new career as a sports podcaster, Mia Khalifa was struck by a rogue puck during a hockey playoff game back in the summer of 2018, and she revealed that her left breast had been 'deflated' as a result of the accident.
"Also, I got hit in the boob with a puck during the game, and I’m 80% sure it ruptured an implant. But the good news is, I got a game used puck from a Capitals Stanley cup playoff game. Worth it," she explained in her post from May 2018, featuring the former adult film star clutching her chest, and holding a puck.
Fans of the former adult actress held their breath over the intervening months, holding out in hope of some news or update, and last Monday, our prayers were all answered: Khalifa shared with us a picture of her going under the knife on Instagram, telling us of her journey along the way.
"I almost wish I could have surgery every month just to get to spend this down time with my favorite boys. I love y’all so much. Thank you for taking such good care of me in your own ways," said Khalifa in her post before she went under the knife, which featured her boyfriend, Swedish chef Robert Sandberg and her friend Jeffrey Solomon.
She also directed followers to the Instagram page of Dr Jay Calvert for some more science-y information: "if you want to know more about my surgery, it’s a permanent memory on my IG page, or check out @drjaycalvert’s page for fancy doctor verbiage about what happened to me."
Dr Jay Calvert didn't mention Khalifa by name (this would have been a breach of doctor-patient confidentiality), but he did give a couple of clues as to what Mia Khalifa would have experienced under the knife, using the hashtag #beautifulbreasts to ensure that we all were able to track Khalifa's surgery.
"A patient’s own body fat is an amazing reconstructive tool," Dr Calvert began.
"Breast volume can be increased using fat as a graft material. It mimics the breast tissue and tends to survive very well over time. The percentage of graft survival can be variable but with good technique and post-op care, excellent results can be achieved. I am using fat grafting in a good number of my implant cases and a larger number of my revision breast implant cases."
Thanks to the work of Dr Calvert that day, surgery was a resounding success. That photo above is from loyal boyfriend Sandberg, before Khalifa woke up and posted in her Instagram story: "that couldn’t have gone smoother." Rest easy, folks, Mia Khalifa's going to be just fine.
