Sheyla Hershey Almost Died from Her 38MMM Breasts -- Now She Wants Them Bigger

The former world record holder for largest augmented breasts still wants to go bigger - even after facing a near death experience.

Sheyla Hershey, 31, formerly had 38MMM cup-size breasts.  But, she lost those breast implants when an infection set in last year.  The petite 5"3" mother had to undergo surgery to remove the implants and avoid death.  When they were gone, she soon felt suicidal as they had become a big part of her life (no pun intended).

"My breasts had become part of me and I was deformed without them. I felt like I had lost a leg," she told the Daily Mail.

At the time, Sheyla had already gone through 30 breast implant surgeries (is that is a record in itself?).  Yet, even after the death scare, she planned another surgery outside the country to reconstruct the implants she lost and to get back to the immense triple M size.  All this was done secretly as her doctors, therapists and husband were against her going under the knife again, possibly risking another life-threatening infection.

"My husband knew that I was going to Cancun in Mexico to get my breasts reconstructed,'" said Sheyla.

"He didn't know that I was going to have them re-inflated with saline and that I planned to return to my previous size of 38MMM, but I was desperate to claim my status as having the world's largest breast implants, " she added.

Since then, Sheyla has slowly reconstructed herself back up to a 38KKK cup size (by flying to various countries for several procedures).  She plans to finish the reconstructive process by 2012.

Her compulsion to be the "world's largest" has cost about $94,000 to attain and somehow, she still doesn't feel satisfied with the results.  She knows this puts her marriage in jeopardy and her husband fears their two-year-old daughter, Victoria, could grow up with a negative self-image.  Yet, she does not stop.  Why?

Sheyla suffers from bipolarism, but is it possible she also has body dysmorphic disorder?

"I never think my breasts are big enough. Even now I look in the mirror and I think they are small," she said.
