Others have claimed their boob enlargement left them feeling continuously dozy and suffering fatigue.

In total, the Medicines and Healthcare Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has received 32 reports of psychological reactions to breast implants in the past five years.


Experts want more research into the phenomenon after noting women tended to return to normal as soon as their fake busts were removed.

Breast augmentation surgery, the technical name for a boob job, costs £5,000.

Nearly 8,000 ops were carried out last year by registered private ­surgeons, the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons says.

Nora Nugent, of BAAPS, warned against “bargain” fake boobs, adding: “Reported symptoms of psychological side effects must be taken seriously.”

An MHRA spokesman said: “Patient safety is our highest priority.”

Sarah Nugent of the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons said women should be wary of the side effects of ‘bargain’ fake boobs
