Porn star’s O-cup breasts could kill her unless she has a mastectomy

I did not even know of the existence of O cups before this story broke and now the lady will probably have to make do with no breasts at all. Sad really, considering this was a self imposed problem.

Adult film actress Elizabeth Starr recently opened up about the  life-threatening conditions brought on by her breast implants.

For this adult film star with O-cup breasts, bigger isn’t better.

Elizabeth Starr, 43, underwent a controversial surgery to get dramatically  enlarged boobs, hoping they’d help her career. Now, she says, she’s paying the  price.

Doctors have told Starr that unless she undergoes a double mastectomy, she  runs the risk of blood clots and infections.

“There is so much scar tissue in my breasts it’s affecting the blood flow to  the body and could cause a fatal blood clot,” Starr told U.K. newspaper The Sun.

“I’m a ticking time bomb because anything could happen to me – I’m so  scared.”

In 1999, Starr paid 3,000 pounds (nearly $5,000 USD today) for polypropylene  breast implants, also known as string implants. The procedure involves putting  synthetic polypropylene “strings” into the breasts. The strings generate fluid  production and then absorb the fluid, causing the breasts to continuously expand  over time. The implants were banned in the United States and Europe a few years  after Starr’s operation.

Starr, who lives in Los Angeles, told The Sun that she began suffering  complications “within days” of the operation.

She had the strings removed from her right breast after a painful infection,  then had a saline implant put in to even out her chest. It requires a staggering  4 liters of fluid to measure up.

Elizabeth Starr's doctor recommended she have a double mastectomy, but she's not willing to give up her career.

Elizabeth Starr’s doctor recommended  she have a double mastectomy, but she’s not willing to give up her career.

The mom of two, who has spent hundreds of thousands on reconstructive  operations to fix complications, said she is in “constant pain” and finds it  difficult to perform simple tasks like getting dressed.

Her reconstructive surgeon for the past 8 years told The Sun that Starr’s  future “is uncertain.”

“Over the years I’ve seen cases of polypropylene string implants but I’ve  never seen a case quite like Elizabeth’s,” said Dr. Alexander Sinclair.

“I presented her case at the local medical society and the sentiment was she  needed a double mastectomy.”

But Starr says getting a mastectomy isn’t an option.

“After 63 procedures on my right breast and fighting to keep my career and  my breast, I honestly don’t think that I could,” Starr told The Sun. “A  mastectomy would take away my livelihood and I don’t know what else I would  do.

“It’s hard when you have been a victim of something and it’s even harder when  you choose a path in life where people might look down on you and think, ‘She  deserved it.’ But I wouldn’t wish this on anyone and I hope my story will act as  a warning.”
