Woman's boob 'explodes in shower' after implant operation in Tunisia

Daily Echo: Alison Chapman Alison Chapman

ALL she wanted was to get back what she had lost, to boost her confidence and feel comfortable in her own body.

But Alison Chapman has been left with what she calls “mutilated breasts” after her boob exploded in the shower following cosmetic surgery in Tunisia.

After three years of pain and depression the 45-year-old from Hedge End has finally won a five-figure sum in compensation allowing her to have reconstructive surgery to repair some of the damage.

However, the whole ordeal has left her feeling humiliated and the mum-of-one now wants to warn other women of the potential dangers of having surgery abroad.

Alison said: “My advice would be don’t do it. I have been left with what I consider mutant breasts and although the reconstructive surgery I have had has made them feel more like my own, it will be a long time until I feel totally comfortable with them.

“I hope my story acts as a warning to anyone else considering having cosmetic surgery abroad.

“If I could turn back the clock I would not have had the operation there and would have spent more time looking into the potential risks that come with surgery at a foreign clinic.”

After a few months of research Alison travelled to Tunisia for breast implants in March 2009 after suffering from low self esteem over the size and shape of her breasts.

But two months later she was forced to return after her right breast began to droop – bringing the total paid for both operations to £8,000.

However, despite promises of the “perfect breasts” Alison was mortified to wake up from the second operation to find large scars that grew inches thick.

A few days later Alison returned to the UK but when she went for a shower to ease the pain her left breast burst open, exposing her inside tissue.

Alison said: “I didn’t know what to do, there was just a ping and then all this blood was pouring from the wound. I was petrified.”

After returning to the UK following the second operation Alison won a claim taken against the credit card company which she used to pay for the surgery in Tunisia.

That money has paid for two reconstructive surgeries in theUK – and a holiday back to Tunisia.

Alison added: “It has taken three years of reconstructive surgery to repair the wound and reduce the scarring and I now feel more self-conscious than ever before.”

Personally any woman who seems to feel the need to artificially enhance themselves for non medical reasons needs to have professional help.

I hope as you implied above, that this work was done privately.

Will people ever learn to accept what they were given in life, sadly in this vanity obsessed generation I fear not.

I have absolutely no sympathy for cases like this - unless the surgery was required as a result of disfigurement (e.g. breast cancer)

I find it sad that anyone would choose to travel to a North African clinic, hand over tens of thousands of pounds, to go under the knife for cosmetic reasons.

But... If the NHS were required to correct the results I dont think it is sad. I think it is despicable.

And incidentally, compensation from credit card companies does not come from thin air... society pays for this through increased charges or interest payments.

Boobs are boobs, why do us women want bigger ones than others.

Next thing will be men go for penis extensions.

This article is not even newsworthy, don't give this silly woman News time. She made a choice knowing the risks, it just exploded it her face, bet she feels a right tit!
I went to Tunisia for an extension.
It went horribly wrong. It is now so long I have to tuck the end in my shoe. Woman don't like it all, because they say it makes me limp!

The subject of an exploding great due to bad surgery isn't funny. However, for believing that some clinic in Tunisia that she got off the net would be reliable, for having elective surgery corrected at the NHS's expense and for just looking plain common, I believe that her being made an object of fun is entirely appropriate.

After watching her on South Today and Meridian Tonight - I would have thought she would have been far more sensible spending the money on replacing her missing top gnashers as opposed to getting a bigger set of knockers!! We all know men like big boobies, but what man likes a bird whose got the same gnashers as Albert Steptoe, even if she has got a nice set of melons???

I have absolutly no sympathy with any woman having this sort of cosmetic surgery, & expecting the NHS to sort it out when it goes wrong. They should pay the full cost themselves. To those knocking the local media for reporting this case, they were only keeping abreast of the news

Whilst we all like to be kept abreast of the news, this particular story needs to be nipped in the bud. The comments here do nothing to augment the story and it seems that the Echo is merely milking the story for all it's worth. It's not funny when one's dreams for a new body image go bust.

sorry but your information is not quite correct there,the story in the magazines was about the wound bursting and nothing to do with the award given.
there has been no payment for this article as its come of the back off a press release given out by the press office at the lawyers in london.
also any money made through the magazines is her families business and nothing to do with this article.

Surgery on healthy body parts is ridiculous and always involves serious risk. Why take such risks just to please someone else? (Those who claim it is "just for me" are deluded - it is ALWAYS to impress someone else) If you have to have big boobs to impress someone, they are not worth impressing! Women need to respect themselves more, they are lovely just the way they are.

If your daft enough to seek breast enhancement at her age your daft enough for anything, and this story is evidence of that and she deserved what she got. The saddest part of the story is that the card company paid out, at the end of the day you can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear. And to try and make money out of the whole farce and then complain about the jibes when the local paper get hold of the story just emphasises how stupid some people can be.

none of you know her personally,nor so you know the full reason as to why she had surgery 3.5yrs ago,the press release was not about making money for any one,it was the lawyers who issued that and all the papers picked up on it.
the credit card paid out as they had a legal obligation to as the money was put on the card prior to travel.
if journalists want to continue to report the story,thats downto them and if money is made by magazine deals or tv appearances both past present and future,then so be it.the family deserve it.

If its not about making money then why did she sell her story to the magazines last year?! If that was my mum I would be ashamed to show myself, has she not thought what this will do to her kid? At the end of the day its her own fault she should not have gone there in the first place!

The only thing the woman deserves is the shame and ridicule she has brought upon herself and her family but after looking at her picture with all of those tattoo's i don't think she knows much about shame or dignity.

Gettin Worse... says...

I cannot understand how someone as dainty and petite as this fine figure of feminity, didn't already have ample sized knockers.

I would never advise going abroad for surgery simply because it's cheap. Espescially if you don't want to return with private areas that look like something from a delicatessen.

She cut corners to try get what she wanted on the cheap (not the first time by the looks of those pearly whites of hers) and unsurprisingly it burst out of her like something from the Alien quadrillogy.

You get what you pay for. I hope she learned her lesson fast and actually paid for a decent plumber to remove the untold quantities of silicone from her bathroom piping.
