US Weekly frequently speculates on what it calls "knifestyles" of the rich and famous, but this week they got their plastic surgery story straight from the source.
Tara Reid's cover story goes into all the gory details of her botched combined liposuction and breast implant surgery in 2004.
According to Tara, she just wanted to balance out her "uneven breasts" with "big Bs" and never expected her implants to be so big. She tells US Weekly:
"I figured, I'm in Hollywood, I'm getting older, I'm going to fix them...I asked for big Bs, and he did not give me big Bs. He gave me Cs, and I didn't want them."
The problem wasn't just the size, as the whole world learned when she walked attended the Sean Combs' birthday party photo shoot in October of 2004 with her bare breast accidentally exposed.
She says the now-famous bumps along the edges of her nipples appeared immediately after the surgery -- but that her doctor promised it would get better over time.
"But after six months of ‘it's going to get better,' it started to get worse and worse...Guys I was dating would be like, ‘What's wrong with them? They look really bad. You know, you should really get them fixed."
She also revealed the details behind her bad liposuction, which has been well-documented in tabloid photos.
"I got lipo because even though I was skinny, I wanted - I'm not going to lie - a six-pack. I had body contouring, but it all went wrong. My stomach became the most ripply, bulgy thing."
Tara underwent reconstructive surgery last month to repair the damage and now says, "I'll never be perfect again, but I've got my confidence back."
