If your doctors have to build an "internal bra" inside you to hold up your breast implants, you miiiiight want to ixnay on the saline.
Lacey Wildd (uh, pretty sure that's not her real name), a 44-year-old mother and model from Miami, stopped by Dr. Drew Pinsky's "Dr. Drew" show on HLN this week to defend her decision to receive L-size breast implants. She currently wants to upgrade her breasts to an MMM-cup, which she says will cause her breasts to weigh 20 lbs. each.
Dr. Drew tries to empathize with the mother of six by holding 10-lb. watermelons up to his chest and asks Lacey how she can even breathe with those giant implants strapped to her body. Wildd's breast implants are so massive that she had to get an "internal bra" surgery to make sure her skin could contain them. (See examples of the "internal bra" here -- NSFW photos).
But never mind the discomfort: Wildd, who worked as a showgirl in her 20's and still models, says she wants to get larger breasts to "help [her] kids": "I just signed a contract with a major network. You're going to see a lot more of me on TV. I am a really good mom and hopefully everybody could see that I make sure my health is number one, because you know what? My kids are number one.”
Wildd's six kids, however, have begged her to stop, including her 16-year-old daughter Tori, who said, "I think she isn't really thinking about our opinions. What if she dies? Is she taking that into consideration?"
Pinsky says that Wildd is doing "severe damage" to her health by continuing to boost her cup size, including back problems, breathing problems and the very-scary sounding "rib cage erosion."
Wildd does admit she has problems sleeping.
