Brisbane mum, Nadine*, booked in for a boob job last September because she was suffering from low self-esteem.
The 41-year-old chose to get 365cc implants after being measured as “less than a 10A” cup size.
She posed for half-naked photos at the surgery to document her breast augmentation and now the images – which show her face – could be in the wrong hands.
While scrolling on Facebook, the mum-of-three discovered the cosmetic surgery company she trusted had clients’ confidential information “hacked” on Friday.
It’s claimed naked photos and medical records of hundreds of women from The Cosmetic Institute (TCI) were published online, The Daily Telegraph reports.
Centennial Lawyers principal solicitor, George Newhouse, says cosmetic surgery is a very sensitive and personal issue.
He told Mamamia if details of medical procedures and photographs have been made public the effects can be catastrophic.
“Public disclosure can affect careers, relationships and even a person’s health and welfare. Public exposure of this kind of intimate information can be traumatic and embarrassing,” he said.
