Budget Boob Job Left Aussie Woman Fighting For Her Life

An Australian woman claims that a budget boob job she underwent back in 2013 left her fighting for her life and warned others to think twice about going under the knife in Thailand.

In a recent interview with Today Tonight, Courtney O’Keefe from Perth, told the show she had successfully lost 35kg and wanted to further enhance her figure by getting breast implants.

She booked an all-inclusive “tourism package” costing A$7,500 through an Australian company thinking she could have a relaxing break by the beach during her recuperation period. It was a massive saving compared to A$25,000 for a similar procedure in her homeland, and a price that didn’t include a “free” holiday.

“I woke up in absolute agony, I can’t even describe the pain,” she says in the video below. “I realised that I’d been butchered.”

Ms O’Keefe added: “I was in a foreign country, I couldn’t speak with the surgeon to tell him how much pain I was in. The staff couldn’t speak English.”

Upon her return from Thailand, she immediately went to Armidale Hospital’s emergency department for treatment. Doctors there found she’d contracted a serious bacterial infection called pseudomonas as a result of the operation. Surgeons were forced to remove the implants, as well as perform a partial double mastectomy on her natural breasts.

Since then she says she has had liver and kidney problems due to the medication required to treat her infection and hasn’t been able to work for over 18 months. Now she is warning others against budget oversees surgery in places such as Thailand.

“You’re offered great surgeons and a great holiday,” she says in the video. “But at the end of the day, it’s a third world country.”

And if the surgery had went as planned, as most do, she’d have been shouting from the rooftops how much she’d saved and what a great time she had.
