Today it rates as the second-most popular form of cosmetic surgery worldwide, undergone by 1.5 million women in 2010. It was spring 1962 when Timmie Jean Lindsey, a mother-of-six lay down on the operating table at Jefferson Davis hospital in Houston, Texas. Over the next two hours, she went from a B to a C cup, in an operation that made history. “I thought they came out just perfect? They felt soft and just like real breasts,” says Lindsey now aged 80. “I don’t think I got the full results of them until I went out in public and men on the street would whistle at me.” Though the operation boosted her self-confidence – and she enjoyed the extra attention – she had never planned to have a breast augmentation. source/full story: bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-17511491 Author Posts Viewing 1 post (of 1 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
