The Bachelor Australia’s Sarah-Mae Amey is scheduled for emergency surgery after learning her left breast implant has significantly ruptured.
Sarah-Mae, who featured on Tim Robards’ season of The Bachelor in 2013, revealed how the implants she got done in Thailand at 19 years old had started to cause her pain.
“I’ve been at the doctor’s today after I was sent to get an ultrasound around my boobs… [I’ve had] pain in my left boob for quite a while,” Sarah said from the front seat of her car in an Instagram Story on June 24. “My left breast has quite an extensive, massive rupture. The doctors have confirmed with the ultrasound that it’s so extensive that it’s probably been there for quite a while and therefore connecting to all of the breast tissue.
“So it’s all going to have to be removed. Basically, as soon as possible.”
The reality star urged fans to get their breasts checked regularly after she ignored signs that something was wrong.
“I was experiencing stabbing pains in my left boob quite a while ago and I just left it,” she said, adding that by leaving it the rupture became “quite dangerous.”
“Don’t get your boobs done in Thailand, basically,” she recommended. “I thought it was a great idea as a young and naive 19-year-old.”
Sarah-Mae also detailed how she is battling with “breast implant illness” due to the “random” health issues she’s experienced. The symptoms that involve fatigue, chills, chronic pain and headaches are typically related to having breast implants.
