The best breasts Keira Maguire has ever seen are her own. It wasn’t always the case. Formerly an A cup, the Sydney-based reality television star has recently undergone breast augmentation surgery that’s taken her to a C.
As told to New Weekly, the former Bachelor contestant is proud of her decision – one she’d been mulling over a decade – and even more so of the end result.
“It’s not all about looks, but if you can enhance something or improve something, I’m all about it,” she said.
Keira’s experience and the accompanying bikini shoot is the kind of chirpy before-and-after story we’ve heard time and time again, one that makes breast enlargement procedures seem more like a beauty treatment than an invasive surgical procedure.
Previously self-conscious and “a bit depressed” about her breasts, she’s now “happy” and “feels like herself”.
“So basically [my surgeon] made a 4cm incision underneath my breast on the crease, and he went underneath the muscle, so it looks more natural,” she said. “It took an hour and a half – I was in and out in four hours.”
Not so much. As Vice President of the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons Dr Gazi Hussain told Mamamia, it’s important to acknowledge the realities of what happens in between the carefully curated before and after shot.
“This is not a flippant procedure, this is not a small procedure. It is a proper operation, it’s an invasive operation; it’s not something you want to take lightly,” he said.
