The world has come to know her well. Sheyla Hershey is known for her striking smile and her large M cup breast implants. She has tried to save them for the past three months, but that fight has come to an end. Hershey had to have her implants removed, along with most of her own breast tissue. Hershey tells FOX 26 News her surgeon realized in surgery that most of her tissue was too damaged to save. She says her surgeon tried to save just enough tissue to attempt reconstructive surgery within three or four months.
When she had the surgery to make her the largest breast implant patient in the World, I said it was risky . Now Sheyla Hershey is starting to realize some of that risk. When implants so large are placed the pressure can thin and destroy tissue. In her case, the implants became involved with infection which undoubtedly further destroyed tissue. Now she seems to have a Wound Vac in place (look at the video) to help encourage the pocket to collapse and heal.
In essence she is becoming a reconstructive type case. This is sad. Her breasts will end up looking pretty poorly by the sounds of things.
