An adult film actress is warning other women about the dangers of breast implants after contracting an infection that has caused one of her breasts to leak fluid.

Los Angeles resident Elizabeth Starr, 47, had the now-illegal 4,000cc breast implants in 1999, Daily Mail reported. The string implants are designed to grow bigger after being put into the body by absorbing fluid and expanding.

But after contracting a staph infection, Starr, who has been under the knife more than 60 times, has a hole leaking fluid in her right breast. She is now debating whether she should have the implants removed.

Starr appeared on the E! reality television show "Botched!," where surgeons Terry Dubrow and Paul Nassif advised Starr to have the implants removed, telling her she was on the path for a "breast disaster" if she kept them.

Starr began suffering complications shortly after her 1999 procedure.

"My right breast was bright red and swollen and I felt weak and shaky," she told the doctors. "The surgeon cut some tissue away from the breast which he thought might be infected. But the infection gradually ate a hole in my right breast the size of a one-dollar piece. The pain was unbearable."

“Over the years I've seen cases of polypropylene string implants but I've never seen a case quite like Elizabeth's," Dr. Alexander Sinclair, Starr's reconstructive surgeon, told The Sun in 2014. “I presented her case at the local medical society and the sentiment was she needed a double mastectomy.”

Starr said she spent more than $260,000 to try and repair the damage to no avail.

"Elizabeth had a very significant but localized problem in her breast which was treated with a local tissue procedure," Dr. Dubrow said. "But that doesn't fix the underlying problem, which is the polypropylene implants are going to continue to cause fluid to accumulate and wreak havoc on her breast tissue and will predictably result in a breast disaster for her."

Starr, who has two adult sons, was already a 38F breast size before getting her string implants. She is now warning other women who are interested in breast enhancement surgery.

"If you are going to attempt to try to become as busty as I am you are putting yourself at extreme risk," she said. "You have to know what you are getting yourself into because it will change your life forever."
