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

Princess 19 on 1 Dec 2011 at 10:00am

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.

Thats rediclus. Theres no reason anybody needs breasts that big at all. God made everybody in his image. Plastic surgery is a waste of money and dangerous.

Nothing wrong with her breasts. I went out to the pasture and examined some the same size on the family cow and they look great.

I love all of the psychoanalysis from rank amateurs who received their training in the field of psychology from watching daytime television. And yes, "Disgusted,' there are people with "REAL problems." But their problems aren't as interesting as Ms. Hershey's.

This person has body dismorphic disorder x 100, or an acute narcissistic disorder. Has she thought about how she will look at 40, 45, or what this could (and probablly will) eventually do to her back? And to think she would do this ridiculous, life-threatening procedure (at 31) with children, who could not be very old. How sad. I guess this is the deapths people will go to get "reality fame."

Sad all the jealous girls with their small breasts need to take out their insecurities on this woman.

I think her bipolarizm is right up front for all to see. I remember this loon from a few years ago and her dilemna with breast problems. Vanity has no bounds of insecurity. Stop the insanity for the sake of your daughter lady!!!!

It's very easy for those of us not in her shoes to want to judge...

Not in her shoes of what?

This is her quote..... "but I was desperate to claim my status as having the world's largest breast implants, " she added, clearly showing where her priorities are.

You have shown your ignorance by using a nasty term to describe other comments. Shows insecurity as you hide behind your computer.

No one is jealous of her.

Are you replying to what i said? Or what the person below me said, before it got removed?

Michael I'm going to guess she was responding to the removed comment. There was some highly offensive language against our ToS, hence the removal.

I like big breasts myself, by 38MMM?!
I consider that going overboard a bit.
Than again, i like breasts of all kinds of sizes, but that is going a bit far, she should just go with a size that's noticeably big, but not over the top, and be happy.

She should just turn herself into two big breasts, and have everything else miniaturized! She's a nut!

Does anyone else feel great sympathy for her husband? What a difficult position to be in...I'm sure he wants her to be happy, but healthy. And think of their daughter!

Very sad.

I do feel great sympathy for her husband. Sounds like she does what she wants despite his feelings.
