8 Craziest Breast Implant Stories. Number 8.
A Los Angeles shooting victim’s breast implant may have saved her life by slowing the bullet
before it reached her heart. Lydia Carranza was working at the Simi Valley
dental office when her co-worker, the gunman’s wife, was shot and killed.
Carranza was just a few feet away. “She’s just one lucky woman,” Dr. Ashkan Ghavami
said. “I saw the CT scan. The bullet fragments were millimeters from
her heart and her vital organs. Had she not had the implant, she might not be alive today”.
An LAPD firearms instructor told the Times it’s possible the implant interrupted the
velocity of the bullet. “I don’t want to say a boob job is the equivalent
of a bulletproof vest,” Scott Reitz said. “So don’t go getting breast enhancements as
a means to deflect a possible incoming bullet.” Number 7.
Authorities say a Texas woman lied about having breast cancer, watched as friends raised $10,000
as a benefit for her, and then spent it to have her breasts enlarged.
At least two dozen people donated to help Trista Joy Lathern get treatment for breast
cancer. The Texas woman held fundraisers, sent out
fliers and received donations from family, friends, co-workers and strangers.
All those who donated were told she had breast cancer and no health insurance.
They were told the 24-year-old mother of two needed live-saving surgery.
Instead, the money went towards breast enlargement surgery in a sad attempt to save her failing
marriage. Lathern also shaved her head to look like
a cancer patient undergoing chemotherapy. Her husband, William Lathern, has now filed
for an annulment of the marriage. She has been charged with theft by deception,
and also re-arrested on a two-year-old warrant for theft by check. Number 6.
A widow has had her dead husband’s ashes sewn into her breast implants – so he can stay
close to her heart. Sandi Canesco, 26, of Sydney, Australia, took
the bizarre step after husband Dustin died in a road accident.
“It dawned on me that if I carried Dustin’s cremated remains in my breast implants, I’d
never really have to part with him at all,” says Canesco. Number 5.
A 45-year-old Russian woman found herself in need of medical treatment when her F-cup
implants burst on an Aeroflot flight from Moscow to Los Angeles.
Irena D’s, as her name has been reported by the Russian press (Irene Ferrari is the real
name), ailment was not immediately obvious to doctors when she collapsed at LA airport
but after a thorough examination they were soon abreast of the situation.
Irena D has since had the implants removed and has been warned of the potential health
consequences of further breast augmentation. Number 4.
Busty Heart certainly brings a new meaning to the phrase “cracking melons’!
With each bafflingly big boob weighing in at a whopping nine kilos, could probably knock
out Mike Tyson. She appeared on Spanish TV show ‘Donde estas
Corazon?’ to prove that the large fruits were no match for her large breasts.
After demonstrating on live TV the damage that her knockers can do to Coke cans and
melons, you’d have to be a brave man to rub her up the wrong way.
And as if that wasn’t enough, a shocked nation watched in awe as Busty Heart appeared on
‘America’s Got Talent’. Even jury star David Hasselhoff, who’s seen
his fair share of big breasts, was impressed. She also have won some admirers in Japan as
she displayed the amazing karate skills of her 95 JJs.
It’s a skill that Busty has been carefully training since the 80s, when she first realized
TV viewers across the globe loved watch her busting melons. Number 3.
A German plastic surgeon hunting women who never paid for their operations has produced
what may be the greatest ‘wanted’ poster in history.
He’s published pictures of their enhanced breasts.
He hopes that publicizing the pictures of the breasts will help police track down the
women, who absconded from the clinic where the surgery took place without paying.
One of the women – who gave her name as ‘Tanja’ – asked to go out to get some ‘fresh air’
after the £5,400 was completed. She never came back. Michael Koenig, the Cologne
surgeon after the women, said: ‘The women registered under fake names.
After the operations, which lasted about an hour, they just ran away,’ he reported. Number 2.
A Bulgarian woman driver escaped relatively unscathed from a head-on pile-up with another
vehicle when her 40DD breast implants absorbed most of the impact.
Elena Marinova, 24, of Sofia, pranged her motor in the northern city of Ruse.
The two cars were crumpled past recognition in the crash but the woman’s silicone breasts
acted as airbags and saved her life. Sadly there were two casualties in the crash
– her enhanced breasts. The force of the impact burst the implants, leaving her somewhat deflated.
A police expert explained: “The implants worked just like airbags – protecting the victim’s
ribs and vital organs from damage.” He did, however, add: “They are not as safe
as the real thing because they exploded, which airbags are not supposed to do.” Number 1.
Model Orit Fox has unwillingly killed a snake after it bit her surgically-enhanced breasts
and died of silicone poisoning. Fox, Israel’s answer to Katie Price, was handling
the normal tame snake on Spanish TV when she attempted to lick its face.
Evidently finding this rather provocative, the snake reacted badly, clamping down on
Fox’s ample chest. Fox was rushed to hospital where she received
a tetanus jab, but she suffered no long-term damage.
Unfortunately the snake did not survive.
