Paula Middleton, 35, of Chinook, Colchester, had the £4,250 surgery five years ago to boost her from an AA to a C cup.And, this is anyone else’s problem…how?
Now one of the silicon implants, made by French company Poly Implant Prothese, has leaked into her lymph nodes and Miss Middleton cannot afford to have it taken out.
The part-time Tesco worker said her surgeons in London’s Harley Street had quoted her £1,500 to correct the operation because they are prioritising ruptured implants over leaking ones.Quite rightly.
Her GP is unable to refer her on the NHS because the procedure is considered cosmetic.Again, quite rightly.
Miss Middleton said the stress and worry was making her ill and even her six-year-old son was concerned.Well, you should have thought of that before you had them done, shouldn’t you?
She said: “All I want is for someone to get the silicon out of my body.
“I’m not after suing anyone or compensation, but I can’t afford to get the implants removed. I am worried about my health and if they are harming me.”
Miss Middleton has turned to Braintree-based legal firm Holmes & Hills and Colchester MP Sir Bob Russell in a bid for help to get them removed.Oh, for…!
She said: “I’m not a hypochondriac, but every cold or pain I get I relate to the implants.Another baby?!? For a part-time Tesco worker who claims she can’t afford £1500 to have her leaky implants fixed?
“I’m not the sort of person to have regrets, but I wish I had never had them done.
“The last three weeks I have been suffering from total paranoia. My work friends have noticed the change in me.
“I have even had to put plans to have another baby on hold while this hangs over me.”
