Around one in five women in the UK having boob jobs are not first timers. Through the eyes of 26-year-old Fashion Journalist Louise Roe Addicted to Boob Jobs, looks at women who are not satisfied with having just one boob job but who are choosing to return to the operating table again, again and in some cases again.
When Louise was sixteen she considered having a boob job so she understands why women might want bigger breasts but she is shocked to discover that today some women don’t just stop at one. To understand why women are having multi boob jobs Louise immerses herself in the world of the boob job addict. Louise looks beyond the surgery and asks is it society, is it the media or is it men that drive women to want bigger and bigger and bigger boobs?
Louise meets the women for whom one breast augmentation just isn’t enough:
Charlotte Stainton at 23 has already had five boob jobs. Her 30GG boobs are now bigger than Jordan’s. Charlotte runs a Hairdressing Salon in Kent with her husband Simon. Simon encouraged Charlotte to get the biggest boobs possible – a decision that Louise is shocked to discover they later paid the price for. After boob job number two Charlotte was forced to spend six months with only one boob after one of her implants leaked.
Kate Merrony, 20, a glamour model and Mum from Bournemouth admits to Louise that one boob job just isn’t enough for her. Even though Kate’s first boob job has made her an E cup she still isn’t satisfied with the size and wants to go even bigger.
Rachel Palmer a 29 year old Divorcee and Mum of two is about to head off to Croatia for boob job number two. Rachel who heads up an IT recruitment team by day is not new to surgery and has already had a tummy tuck, lipo and one boob job. Rachel is hoping that boob job number two will give her the pert boobs that she had before she had her kids.
Anne Marie Hart, 24, a Liverpudlian Mum already has huge breasts – she had her first boob job eighteen months ago which took her from a b cup to an e cup. But for Anne Marie, and her boyfriend Neil this still isn’t big enough. Louise meets her just as she is about to have her second breast augmentation. Anne Marie’s confidence has been knocked by past relationships and bullying and she is hoping that bigger boobs will not just open the door to a career as a glamour model but will bring her lifelong happiness.
Louise watches as Willa Keswick a 23 year old who works in fashion increases her bust by a whole cup size right before Louise’s eyes with the latest cosmetic craze to come to the UK. This is the Boob Job Jab that is surgery free.
Louise meets Jodie Marsh who recently had a boob job after declaring previously that was something she would never do. Louise asks are celebrities like her to blame for this obsession with bigger boobs.
Through Louise’s eyes the programme explores what is behind a woman’s decision to have not just one boob job but another and in some cases another, and another and another……..
