Brazilian model Sheyla Hershey, who has the world’s largest breasts reportedly received life saving surgery on Wednesday. The 30-year-old model who lives in Texas has been suffering from serious health issues as she contracted a staph infection on both breasts during her last operation in June to make her breasts even larger.
Sheyla Hershey with worlds largest breasts
It has been reported that the Brazilian models implants have been taken out and she also faces the daunting prospect of both of her natural breasts to be removed, as doctors are scared that that the infection will enter her blood stream.
Hershey had first enlarged her breasts in her early 20’s as a birthday present by her boyfriend, and continued to enhance her body via plastic surgeries.
It has been reported that the model who has been in the Brazilian press frequently in recent years has received up to 30 plastic surgeries mostly on her breasts but also on her nose, lips and buttocks.
The happily married Hershey who also has a baby had an operation on her huge 38KKK boobs to make them MMM size in 2008 but after finding out she was pregnant, she got her breast size reduced.
Hershey managed to get into the Brazilian equivalent of having the world’s largest breasts.
After her pregnancy she decided to carry on her goal of having the world largest breasts and despite the Texas Laws which ban her from having large implants as they are life threatening, the 30-year-old went to Brazil, her native country to have the operation.
Doctors had warned the 30-year-old beauty that going so large could cause life threatening illnesses, but Hershey was so optimistic of reaching her goal, she ignored her doctor’s warnings.
Hershey is reportedly in hospital recovering from the operation which has taken out the reported gallons worth of implants.
Lolo Ferrari, the woman with the largest breasts who died in 2000, had also suffered from health issues.

Other key planks of her policy platform include a €100 fine for infidelity, and a law insisting that only models in bikinis are allowed to work as tourist guides, something she suggests would boost Romania's popularity as a travel destination.
Bikinis: may become mandatory for Romanian tourist guides, in the unlikely event of a Buruiana victory

Lady Gaga's 'big-eyed effect', made popular by the singer in her Bad Romance video, is increasingly gaining popularity among teens who are using "circle lenses" to change the look of their eyes in size and colour.
While Gaga's look in the video was largely computer generated, more and more teens are reportedly using lenses for the "doe-eyed" look. Teens and young adults trying to copy Lady Gaga's huge, doe-eyed look from her "Bad Romance" music video should probably think twice -- so-called "circle lens" contact lenses may cause inflammation, pain, and even blindness.
Makeup artist Michelle Pham made "circle lenses" a huge hit on YouTube, after she demonstrated how to use them. To date, she's had almost ten million hits.
"The contacts are made overseas and are designed to radically change the look of eyes in size and or colour," CBS News quoted Pham, as saying.
These lenses are immensely popular in Asia with Korean pop stars, and now more Americans are sporting the look.
However, the so-called circle lenses are banned in the US because they're not FDA approved. And until now no American manufacturer is making them.
Most lenses are made in Asia, purchased online and are extensively promoted on Facebook.
But doctors fear the lack of quality control, as with any lens, could cause eye infections, damage to the cornea, even loss of vision.
Dr. S. Barry Eiden, the Chair of the Contact Lens and Cornea Section of the American Optometric Association, said: "We have no control of where they're manufactured, what their processes are and they're not being fit and appropriately medically cared for by licensed eye doctors."
Eiden added: "There's nothing wrong with wanting to change eye color as long as its safe and in an approved way under the guidance of a licensed professional."

The 51-year-old entertainer slathers her whole body in cream that costs 500 pounds per pack. She prefers nothing but the purest Kabbalah water that doesn't come cheap. Madonna bought a 40,000-pound anti-cellulite machine to keep her dimples away.
An avid fan of the 'Gyrotonic Expansion System', that is a rack-like contraption which stretches and strengthens the muscles-with the aim of making them longer and leaner, Madonna shells out 414 pounds for a course of three sessions which adds up to GBP 20,000 a year, reports The Mirror.
Madonna also uses a number of anti-ageing creams and serums for her face and body. She regularly sleeps covered in a 500-pound-a-pot cream and wrapped in a plastic body suit to keep her skin youthful and moisturised. A couple of night's of this beauty sleep a week adds up to 52,000 pounds a year.
Madonna personal nutritionist and chef travel with her here everywhere to prepare macrobiotic meals. The wages sum up to 45,000 pounds a year each while a bottle of Kabbalah water costs 6 pounds.
