An Instagram model has revealed how a botched boob job caused her nipples to lose blood flow and ‘die’ – turning so black that they looked ‘burned’ – after she got five surgeries on one day.
Alejandra Mercedes, 25, from Miami, Florida, went under the knife in October 2021 – getting a combined breast lift and implant change to reduce the size of her 34DDD cups, as well as liposuction on her back, and a J-Plasma Skin Tightening procedure.
However, the five-in-one-day operation, which cost her $20,000, left the influencer with necrosis on both of her areolas – which occurs when cells or tissue on your body dies.
Alejandra was horrified when she removed her bandages three days after the surgery and discovered that her nipples had both turned black due to lack of blood flow.
She was then re-admitted to the hospital where doctors had to use scissors to cut away some of the dead cells. She was also forced to undergo another surgery, after her breast muscle ‘burst through her stitches.’
She has fully healed since then, but was only left with two centimeters of her areola. Now, she is sharing her harrowing story in an attempt to warn others of possible surgical complications.
Alejandra got her first surgery as a teenager, when she received a liposuction procedure.
