Sharon Osbourne Reveals That She Underwent A Double Mastectomy And Has Sworn Off Any Further Plastic Surgery

Wednesday, November 7th, 2012

Here is a revealing interview with Sharon Osbourne on her CBS show The Talk. Sharon shares that genetic testing revealed she carried a gene for breast cancer, and therefore underwent a double mastectomy for prophylaxis. She has also sworn off any further plastic surgery, due to seeing photos of herself looking like she’s had work done.

I think it’s great that Sharon is so open about her health and plastic surgery. It sounds like her genetic testing wasn’t all that planned, so it’s good that the circumstances occurred as they did. Some genes carry a nearly 100% risk of developing breast cancer, so it’s important that anyone with a major family history of breast cancer talk with their doctor about whether genetic testing might be important for them. Technology has really gone a long way in saving lives that could have otherwise been lost. It’s good that Sharon brought this topic up.

I would also convey to Sharon that I think the majority of her plastic surgery looked very well done! I wouldn’t recommend that she swear off ALL plastic surgery. In general, it’s served her well!


Sharon Osbourne Reveals She Had A Leaky Silicone Breast Implant

Wednesday, October 26th, 2011

Sharon Osbourne recently revealed on The Talk that she underwent surgery to have a leaking silicone gel breast implant removed.  According to RealSelf.com:

“One morning I woke up and one of my boobies was kind of much longer than the other.  So, I’m like looking at them thinking, ‘This isn’t right,’” she added.  She was advised by her surgeon that the “drooped boob” was, in fact, leaking.  She promptly had them removed as the silicone had “leaked into the wall” of Sharon’s stomach.

Not to be undone by the unfortunate incident, Sharon decided to get some other work done while she removed the implants.  She implied that she received a butt lift along with her newly constructed breasts.  When asked how she felt about her new breasts she replied, “I don’t feel like I have a water bed laying on my chest anymore.”

Leave it to Sharon to tell the truth without pulling punches!  Plastic surgery or not, Sharon’s aging very well.

For patients who are worried about a leaking breast implant: it’s always best to remove a leaking silicone implant.  Although studies have shown no evidence that broken silicone implants cause serious disease, it’s best to exchange the implant for a new one as soon as possible.


Sharon Osbourne’s Breast Implants Destined To Be Ozzy’s Paperweights??

Tuesday, April 20th, 2010

In a recent interview on the Today Show, Sharon Osbourne stated that she plans to have her breast implants removed this summer and then plans to give them to her husband Ozzy to use as paperweights!

According to nydailynews.com:

“They’re better on his desk than on my chest,” she said. “They’re awful!”

Even for a plastic surgeon who does this surgery nearly every day, I find that pretty gross. I once removed breast implants from a patient who asked me if she could take the explanted implants home with her. When I asked her why, she replied that she planned to mail them to her ex-husband!

Thanks for reading.

Celebrities Looking Better with Age?

Monday, November 13th, 2006


Some celebrities seem to look better with age. Is it from better hair? Losing the baby fat? More shaped brows? Or possibly plastic surgery? There is a website which looks at this, focusing on a number of famous stars. Sharon Osbourne is one of them. She has admitted to quite a few plastic surgeries to look better (including a gastric band to lose weight). Otherwise, Nicole Kidman appears to have a classic Botox brow and Celine Dion may have fixed her gummy smile. They all look better!

Sharon Osbourne – plastic surgery

Saturday, October 21st, 2006

Sharon Osbourne is planning to have her gastric band removed. A gastric band is a band placed around the stomach to make it smaller. This causes the person to feel full quicker, and therefore eat less.
According to the Associated Press:
Osbourne, who has written a memoir, “Sharon Osbourne Extreme,” had surgery in 1999 to have the gastric band put inside her, but intends to shed it in December (when she returns to the U.S. from Britain). Though the band is designed to limit food intake by squeezing down the stomach’s capacity, she packed on 15 pounds this year, she says, “from overeating.”

“I keep trying to eat more and more … I’m a pig,” says Osbourne, who has indulged in “chocolate, French fries and junk food” instead of sticking to the nutritious diet required of gastric-band patients.
What happens when she eats too much? “You throw up…then you eat more,” she says.

Hopefully she can keep her appetite in check after the band is removed. The gastric band is a nice alternative to gastric bypass surgery. The recovery isn’t as difficult, the surgery is reversible (as far as I know), and it doesn’t seem as risky as gastric bypass. Weight loss doesn’t seem to occur quite as fast as with gastric bypass as well, which may actually be a good thing.
I have operated on several people who have had gastric banding, lost a lot of weight (80-120 lbs), and then needed a tummy tuck to remove excess skin. There are some plastic surgeons who focus solely on treating people with massive weight loss.
