Porn Star's O-Cup Breasts May Kill Her If She Doesn't Get A Mastectomy

As a young adult entertainer with two children to provide for, Elizabeth Starr made the decision to get string breast implants. The implants, which are now illegal, work by placing a piece of synthetic string inside a breast implant pocket. The string causes the breasts to produce a serum that continuously fills the implant pocket, thereby causing breasts to expand indefinitely. 

Starr saw the implants as a way to boost her chances of making money in the porn industry.

“Back then I had a family to support and I knew getting bigger boobs would boost my career prospects,” she said.

But now, 63 follow-up procedures later, Starr lives in constant fear that her breasts may kill her.

“Now I live day to day worrying I might be struck down by infections or blood clots - it's ruined my life,” she said. “I'm a ticking time bomb because anything could happen to me - I'm so scared.”

Complications began with the implants just a few days after her surgery. Her right breast was abnormally swollen and red. The breast was infected, and the surgeon decided to remove Starr’s right breast implant. The left implant was already too embedded for removal. As a result, Starr has spent years repeatedly implanting and removing breast implants in her right breast to match the ever-increasing size of her left one.

Her breasts are now up to a staggering size O cup. She has a four liter bag of saline in her right breast to match to the size of her left.

“Over the years I've had lots of implants put in and taken out to make my right breast the same size as my left,” she said. “The tissue in my right breast was so badly damaged that there was almost nothing left. One operation involved taking a muscle from my back to replace damaged tissue in my right breast. I've spent time recovering in oxygen tents and almost died three times.”

The amount of scar tissue in her right breast now leaves her at an increased risk for blood clots. A team of doctors recommends a double mastectomy for Starr, but she can’t bear the thought of more surgery.

“I have one option other than to live like this and that is to face a mastectomy,” she said. “But after 63 procedures on my right breast and fighting to keep my career and my breast, I honestly don't think that I could.

"A mastectomy would take away my livelihood and I don't know what else I would do. It's hard when you have been a victim of something and it's even harder when you choose a path in life where people might look down on you and think, 'she deserved it.’ But I wouldn't wish this on anyone and I hope my story will act as a warning.”
