Former Big Brother star Skye Wheatley has spoken publicly about the breast augmentation that has left her with a “double bubble” boob and shattered self-esteem.
An estimated 15,000 Australians travel overseas each year to undergo cosmetic procedures. Last February, Wheatley joined their ranks, undergoing surgery in Thailand to even up her asymmetrical breasts — a feature that had affected her confidence for years.
“They’re completely deformed. If I can fix them, why not?” Wheatley told the Daily Mail in the lead-up to her trip.
“Boyfriends have called me ‘pancake’ in the past and comments like that stick.”
I literally have no motivation for gym and Cadbury chocolate is $2.50 at Coles. WTF I’m getting so saggy guys, I’m small but I have no tone what so ever! What motivates you guys tell meeee?!?! For everyone saying its a shame I’m not confident in my body go read the new NW article seriously. It’s okay to feel self conscious and it’s okay to see your flaws! I accept the fact im not perfect because no one is
The 22-year-old’s procedure was performed in Bangkok, courtesy of an Australian medical travel agency she had initially contacted before going on Big Brother.
Although she was confident going into the procedure, her excitement turned to concern when her bandages were removed and she noticed a lump on her right breast.

“I gasped at the lump and was told it would go away in a month,” Wheatley recalls in the latest issue of NW magazine.
