Woman left in agony after bum implants 'rotated' inside her
A woman who underwent surgery on her bottom says she was left in agony and with a deformed behind after the implants rotated inside of her, the Daily Mail reports.
Jabrena, from Georgia, decided to have implants inserted in the region in order to transform her 'beanpole' physique into the more curvaceous figure she had always coveted. But she was far from pleased with the results.
Take a sneak peek of Jabrena's appearance on E!'s Botched:
Jabrena was left with two sizable and artificial-looking implants which made an obvious outline underneath her skin.
Two weeks after the surgery, the swelling had gone down somewhat, and the implant could be seen on the side as though there were a "crease" in her flesh. A month and a half later, though, the implant flipped.
Jabrena told surgeons in a new episode of the E! TV show, Botched, that the implants were so poorly fitted that they somehow managed to rotate inside her body, to the point where they were causing her pain.
Fortunately, the show's surgeons were able to repair the damage and give the patient the bum she had asked for.
The Botched surgeons, Dr Terry Dubrow and Dr Paul Nassif, said the implants had been placed in a pocket (the space surgeons created inside the patient's flesh) which was too large.
That is why the implants failed to stay in place and moved around inside her body. Jabrena's original surgeon offered to try to fix the error for an additional $4,000 but she decided to seek a second opinion from the Botched surgeons instead.
"I just want a little, cute, nice toot butt and not this big honk that I have back here,' she said on the show.
Dr Dubrow described the ordeal as a 'butt dilemma' and said: "We certainly want to help you, but we don't want to restore you to a place that you hate."
This woman was left with a botched face after trying to fix her 'pelican neck':
He added: "Not only are the implants in a pocket that's way too big, but they're in the wrong plane in the pocket, allowing them to flip around too easily. The problem is, if I just take the implants out, she'll have so much sagging skin and no projection that I'll be trading one big problem for another even bigger problem."
Dr Dubrow removed the implants and fluid from Jabrena's buttocks and replaced them with those of a smaller, more flattering shape.
"Before my surgery, I had a saggy butt and implants were flipping," Jabrena said. "But now, thanks to Dr Dubrow, I am finally free of my honk butt and now I finally have that cute toot butt that I've always wanted."
