I had a boob job to feel sexy but it just left me numb, says Love Island star Anna Vakili

I had a boob job to feel sexy but it just left me numb, says Love Island star Anna Vakili

WITH curves like Kim Kardashian’s, Anna Vakili made plenty of headlines during her time on Love Island.

But now Anna, 30, is preparing to have her seven-year-old breast implants removed because they have caused her pain, lost her work and even impacted on her sex life.

Speaking exclusively to Fabulous Daily, she says: “When I first got them done, I wanted to feel sexier. But it was a mistake thinking bigger boobs would do that.

“They really don’t and if I could turn back time I wouldn’t have done it.

“Pre-surgery, my boobs were actually perfect. But I was easily influenced and made a stupid mistake.”

The £5,500 op, which took her from a modest B-cup to an eye-popping E when she was 23, has left her without sensation in her breasts.

She says: “My boobs were always really sensitive. It was the best part of sex but now they’re completely numb and it’s so upsetting I’ve lost that sensation.

“I didn’t know that could happen. I was so young, I probably didn’t read the side-effects properly and just signed the piece of paper.

“I did it to please everybody, including my boyfriend at the time, which was wrong.

“And because I was a student in university, I couldn’t afford it so took out a loan and got myself into debt.”

Anna, who has returned to her job as a pharmacist during the pandemic, has also made money from endorsements since leaving Love Island, but her implants have prevented her from wearing clothes she would like to.

She says: “It’s very difficult for me to wear different outfits because my boobs don’t fit into certain tops, which is also getting in the way of work, as I can’t advertise brands.

“A lot of clothes now, like crop tops, are cupped and just don’t fit my boobs. Even when I wear a bikini I get bad neck pain.

“When your boobs are smaller, you can wear more revealing clothes and not look as ‘out there’.

“From the clips I saw of myself on Love Island, my boobs looked too big on screen. They were popping out.”

Unfortunately for Anna, who was eliminated from the 2019 series following romances with Jordan Hames and Ovie Soko, having her implants removed will not be as straightforward as she had hoped.

The skin has stretched over the years and her surgeon has warned that it will not simply spring back into shape.

She says: “I can’t go back to my natural boobs, as they won’t look good due to a lot of saggy skin and emptiness inside. So, what I’ll have to do is have them taken out, get smaller ones put in and then have a boob lift as well in order to avoid the sagging.

‘SCARRING IS THE PRICE I WILL HAVE TO PAY’

“It’s natural that as women get older, our boobs drop. With heavy implants, they drop even more. I’m currently a 36DD and when I put weight on, my boobs go even bigger, and they’re really saggy now.”

This latest surgery is going to set Anna back £11,000 but she is happy to fork out to get it right this time around.

She says: “I’m going to a top surgeon and that’s why he’s so expensive. I’d rather pay the £11,000, just to be sure it’s right. The scarring will be bad but that’s the price I’m going to have to pay for what I did when I was younger.

“I will look after them as best as I can. But I’m not going to hide my scars if I’m in bed with anyone, because they’re part of my journey.

“That’s why it’s really important to research surgery beforehand, because going under the knife can lead to more complications.”

Anna wishes someone had warned her about taking such drastic action.

She says: “I wish I’d had one person say, ‘Anna, think about it’. I didn’t have anyone talk me out of it. My mum is quite chilled about these things and as long as they weren’t humongous, she said, ‘Go for it’. My boyfriend at the time told me, ‘Yes, do it’.

“You should just never have surgery to try to look sexy for a guy, or men in general. If I tell any guys I’m having my implants removed, they say, ‘Why? Keep them’.”

Even her current boyfriend, who she has been with for just over a year but never identified, has asked her to stay as she is. But she says: “I don’t care about what he wants any more, I’m doing it for me.”

After Anna undergoes the op, next month, she plans to turn her back on surgery.

She says: “Once I’ve done this, I’m absolutely through with it. I’ve put on so much weight, but I thought, I’m not going to do anything stupid. I just want to be healthy, exercise and change my lifestyle. I want to do things the right way from now on.”

She is dreading the recovery but is determined to take it easy and listen to her body as it heals.

She says: “When I had my first surgery, I was bedbound for about five days and I had a lot of bad side-effects from the anaesthetic, and a lot of nausea.

“You can feel a bit down and depressed after surgery as well, which is strange. You get a little bit regretful, and those effects last for the first few weeks. It’s not nice.

“So I must be very careful and, for two weeks afterwards, I won’t be able pick anything up. But I plan to keep myself busy.”

So what advice would Anna now give to anyone who is considering cosmetic surgery?

‘BE SURE YOU'VE DONE YOUR HOMEWORK’

She says: “I wouldn’t say, ‘Don’t do it’, because I think it’s fine in some circumstances. But you have to make sure you’ve really done your homework.

“If I’d have gone to a good surgeon the first time, he would have told me my implants would be too big for my body shape.

“I would also advise people to read a lot of reviews and look at lots of before-and-after pictures. Don’t be afraid to learn about the complications and do be aware of them.”

Finally, Anna urges women not to be slaves to trends because what is deemed a good look one moment will not be the next.

She says: “I think big boobs went out of fashion a long time ago, to be honest.

“These things change all the time. Right now, it’s the fashion to have a big bum, but in a few more years it might not be.

“Surgery isn’t necessarily the answer. The best thing we can all do is to learn to accept and love ourselves for what we are and what we have. That is how we can start to find happiness.”
