Sharon Osbourne swears off plastic surgery

Los Angeles - Sharon Osbourne has sworn off cosmetic surgery.

The 60-year-old TV host, who has battled colon cancer in the past and recently decided to undergo a double mastectomy after finding out she carried a gene which increases the chances of her developing breast cancer, claims she will never go under the knife again because she is starting to look plastic.

Speaking on her chat show The Talk on Tuesday, she said: "No more, because I have been looking at pictures of myself recently since I started to lose weight.

"And in a lot of shots, my face looks plastic and at certain angles I was like, 'Oh, dear. Oh, I should never have done that. Oh, that's a bad one.' So I'm like, 'No more. No more abuse.' "

The mother of three, who recently became a grandmother for the first time, revealed she also made the decision because she had problems with her implants prior to getting her breasts removed and warned other people to "never have breast implants".

"One of them had burst, and all of it had gone into the wall of my stomach. And one breast was different than the other," she said.

"I wasn't diagnosed with cancer, but I had the gene and one of my breasts was in a really bad state because of the implant."

    I can certainly understand swearing off cosmetic surgery after Ms Osborn's decision to have preventative mastectomies, and the problem with her implants. However, many women want reconstructive breast augmentation after mastectomies. With most breast implants a patient can count on them lasting at last least a decade. For silicone implants, the FDA recommends and MRI every 2 to 3 years to protect against rupture. If saline implants rupture, on the other hand, it is immediately noticeable. So there is future maintenance involved. Not everyone is a candidate for every cosmetic procedure and it is a good idea to research and find a reputable surgeon and facility. An ethical and reputable surgeon will advise you if a procedure is not right for you. Realistic expectations are the key in seeking cosmetic surgery.
