A woman with a 34HH bust is taken aback when her doctor advises her not to get her “beautiful breasts” lowered.
A DOCTOR advised a woman not to have her 34HH breasts reduced, claiming that “people spend thousands for magnificent breasts like hers.”
In March of last year, Victoria Gilbert, 28, went to the doctor because her 34HH boobs were giving her persistent back discomfort and red welts on her skin. She claims a ‘disappointed’ female doctor advised her against having the operation to shrink her eight-pound breasts since they are ‘beautiful,’ and many women would pay for a large bust like hers.
“I’d made a comment along the lines of ‘I don’t like my boobs, they’re just a bit too big,’ and that’s when she looked at me and said ‘but they’re lovely, people would pay thousands [for them], I know women who have paid thousands to have breasts like yours,” Ms Gilbert, from Brentford, West London, said. Don’t expect a discount.’
“There’s a tone in women’s voices that says, ‘Oh, I’m just trying to make you feel better,’ but that wasn’t the case. It was serious, almost as if she was upset that I was considering shrinking them.”
Ms Gilbert claims she was taken aback by the comment made by a professional lady, and it left her feeling “very furious and upset.”
She mentioned that she had had troubles with her breasts since adolescence, and that other students teased her at school. “Girls would embarrass and bully me at school, and boys would pursue me online for pictures,” she added.
“As a result of this, I have body dysmorphia, and when I look in the mirror, I see a monster.”
“I felt extremely self-conscious and humiliated. I really felt disgusting; I’d never worn a bra that kept me in place.”
Ms Gilbert has gone to many GPs over the last decade, requesting a decrease on the NHS, but claims she has only been told to lose weight. She did, however, go up a cup size after losing two-and-a-half stone in 2016.
She is presently soliciting money for a private breast reduction surgery. “After 14 years of sobbing, aching, and loathing myself, I finally believe that seeking private health treatment is my best option,” she stated.
“It’s difficult for me to ask for aid, but that thought had been banging around in my head for a few months. Between that and what that doctor told me, I decided I should just.”Brinkwire Summary News.”
