My new life after cosmetic op ordeal

Daily Echo: Kym McEwan Kym McEwan

SHE was in terrible pain for years and desperately worried about the damage cosmetic surgery had done to her body.

Devastated Kym McEwan was also haunted by the thought the procedure may have harmed her baby.

But now Kym and partner Steve can look forward to a new year with hope – after a surgeon offered to help.

As the Government continues its investigation into the cosmetic surgery industry, Kym spoke exclusively to the Daily Echo about her ordeal.

Vanity is a part, but it goes far deeper. The recent report into the industry highlighted the evil snake-oil style salesmen routine and the way people have been psychologically tricked and bullied into thinking that the op was what they really wanted.

Well done to Kym for raising awareness and I hope she isnt too badly affected now.

I wish this lady a really happy year after her ordeal. I also hope that this story serves as a message to people that it is far better to accept your given body as it is than to have surgical procedures that go against how you are designed to be.

.. evolved to be. There is no design or designer.

Otherwise, agree wholeheartedly.

Agreed to a point. But for those having such operations done privately for vanity reasons, should also foot the bill for the removal or subsequent operations, and not be a drain on the over stretched NHS resources.

In an earlier report she stated that she had the implants at the age of 17 because she had been bullied at school.

At that age, girls have not finished growing and have not fully matured.
