Mum-of-two with giant KK bust refused reduction on NHS finally has huge breasts shrunk
A mum-of-two with a whopping KK bust refused surgery by the NHS FIVE TIMES has finally had her giant breasts reduced.
Kim Mills, 32, from Chelmsford, Essex, was suffering from spinal arthritis due to the pressure on her back from her huge bosom.
But after a surgeon took pity on her plight and offered the life-changing surgery for free, Kim is now living pain free in a bra 11 cup sizes smaller.
Kim said: “I’ve got my life back. Finally without my huge boobs in the way I can be the mum I always wanted to be.
“I can’t wait to do all the things I haven’t been able to – I’ll be able to pick my daughter up properly and run around without being worried about what my boobs might do.”
Since developing her huge breasts at 14, Kim had suffered back ache.
When she became a mum, she couldn’t reach over her breasts to tie her daughters’ shoes or brush their hair.
And due to the embarrassment of having such an oversize bust, she hadn’t had a relationship for three years.
After years of pain and stress over the size of her breasts, Kim finally decided to take action when she was asked to be a bridesmaid for a friend just over year ago.
Despite wearing a size 14 in skirts and trousers, she had to search for a size 20 to get a dress with enough material to cover Kim’s top half.
Unable to find an off-the-rail gown to fit over Kim’s chest, the bride had to change the style ideas for the wedding and get her a mis-matching outfit.
When Kim approached NHS doctors to find out whether she might be eligible for reduction surgery, Kim was told she needed to lose weight before she would be even considered.
She promptly embarked on a strict diet and lost five stone – but her whopping breasts didn’t drop an inch. And NHS commissioners said they still couldn’t help her.
Kim eventually made five unsuccessful applications for funded surgery, and even a heart-breaking letter from her 14-year-old daughter Alana to health bosses wasn’t enough to swing it
When in May 2014 she was diagnosed with arthritis of the spine, Kim was told that if she did not do something to stop the onset of the condition she would develop a hunch and eventually be crippled.
She found herself caught in a terrifying catch-22: the only way to halt her arthritis would be to exercise, something her doctor had already declared her medically unfit to do.
But her prayers in September were answered when cosmetic surgery firm Aurora stepped in and offered to complete the £7,000 surgery free of charge as part of their charitable giving commitment.
Just a month later, Kim was on the operating table at the Baddow Hospital with surgeon Garrick Georgeu who removed 8lbs of gland tissue.
Her newly reduced breasts have settled at a comfortable DD cup and she hasn’t felt any back pain since she woke up from surgery.
Kim said: “My boobs have been big since I was in my early teens.
“Nothing I could do would change them – being pregnant, breastfeeding, losing or putting on weight – they just stayed at their whopping KK measurement.
“I would have starved myself if it meant slimming my boobs down to but even after I lost loads of weight they didn’t change.
“People never looked my face first – all they saw was my boobs.
“And I gradually started suffering from horrific back pain. Some days it would be so bad I felt like I couldn’t move.
“I’ve always worked and never wanted to let it stop me but it has been tough.
“Everyone at my job has always been supportive – I’ve had special orthopedic chairs to try and prevent the back pain getting any worse.
“But more importantly, I felt like I couldn’t be the mum that I wanted because my boobs were always in the way.
“They stopped me from playing with me daughter and I couldn’t even tie her shoelaces they were so big!
“Now I can do everything I want and I am so thankful to everyone at Aurora Clinics.
“I can live a normal life without the horrendous pain and embarrassment of having such huge breasts and I will forever be grateful to Baddow Hospital and Aurora Clinics for giving me my life back.
“Without their help I couldn’t see a way forward, I honestly thought I was going to be facing a life of excruciating pain and endless embarrassment.”
Kim’s surgeon Garrick Georgeu revealed the Aurora Community Scheme was launched earlier this year, in conjunction with Baddow Hospital, to give back to the local community and Kim is the first beneficiary.
He said: “After meeting and hearing about Kim’s struggle over the last few years to get NHS funded treatment, we all felt compelled to help her.
“The size of her bust was extreme and significantly affecting every aspect of her life, to the point that in her early 30s has already developed changes within her spine caused by this excessive weight.
“We hope that this breast reduction surgery gives Kim, a new lease on life, bringing about a positive change for her and her young family.”
