Tara Reid Gets 'Ugliest' Breast Impant Surgery Repaired

Oct. 26, 2006 — -- Talking over coffee Thursday about the surgery she underwent to remove her breast implants, actress Tara Reid bemoaned the horrors of her botched breast-augmentation surgery.

"If I had to do it again, I never would have done it in the first place," she said to hosts Rosie O'Donnell and Joy Behar on "The View."

When it comes to cosmetic surgery, many stars still don't admit that they've had work done. But Tara Reid wants everyone to know about the "botched" breast implant and liposuction procedures that left her embarrassed to show her body in public.

"I was on the Web sites as having the ugliest boob job in the world," the 30-year-old "American Pie" actress told Us magazine.

"I got my breasts done for the first time because my breasts were uneven," Reid told Us. " I was a 34-B, but the right one was always bigger than the left. I weigh 110 pounds now, but I always used to fluctuate by 10 pounds, so my skin was kind of saggy. I figured, I'm in Hollywood. I'm getting older. I'm going to fix them."

But the procedure was a disaster from the very start, she said.

"First of all, I asked for big Bs [B cups], and he did not give me big Bs," Reid said. "He gave me Cs, and I didn't want them. At all. Right after the surgery, I had some bumps along the edges of my nipples, but the doctor said, 'Don't worry. It's going to be better.' But after six months of 'it's going to get better,' it started to get worse and worse."

Reid had liposuction performed at the same time as her breast augmentation -- and that, too, was a disappointment.

"I got lipo because even though I was skinny, I wanted -- I'm not going to lie -- a six-pack," she told Us. "I had body contouring, but it all went wrong. My stomach became the most ripply, bulgy thing."

Reid unwittingly exposed the disastrous results when she posed for pictures at a November 2004 party and her dress strap fell down. But she was also embarrassed in private moments.
