7 Shocking Plastic Surgery World Records

1)

Worlds largest breasts

Maxi Mounds holds the record for the largest augmented breasts. Currently wearing a US size 42M bra (UK 42J), Ms. Mounds is the first person to ever hold the record for the world’s largest breast augmentation. Guinness created the world record just for her.

Apparently, this is a coveted position (a Brazilian model almost died in the process of trying to beat the world record.)

Another women trying to claim the record for the worlds largest breasts had to have them removed — she claims she will try to have the surgery again in the future.

Not exactly in the category of plastic surgery, but interesting all the while. Feng Guo said if doctors can’t do anything for him he will cut them off. He might be interested to hear about gynecomastia surgery.
