This is going to be a tough one for all the boob lovers out there. A Texas woman with whopping 36NNN breasts went under the knife for reduction surgery, removing 15 pounds of unwanted weight.
Kerisha Mark of Beaumont, Texas suffers from a medical condition known as gigantomastia, which caused her breasts to grown to their massive size. After years of struggling with the weight of her bosom, Mark, a wife and mother, decided to seek out medical options to lessen her chesty burden.
More from Houston’s ABC13:
Eyewitness News cameras went inside the operating room as Mark celebrated her 40th birthday with a life-altering operation and had more than 15 pounds of tissue removed.
“I was like, happy birthday to me!” Mark said.
She wants to be known for the woman she is, a wife, mother, and school social worker, not the extremely large chest that has prompted stares and whispers since high school.
“My first time at boot camp, I did a jumping jack and my bra snapped,” Mark said.
Mark is an extreme case for Dr. Franklin Rose. As her natural breasts grew larger the emotional and physical effects began taking a toll.
“I started to have really bad headaches. Women and men want to touch them to see if they are real. It’s real intimidating,” Mark said.
Houston‘s Dr. Rose said Mark was possibly the largest bust he’s ever worked on in a reduction, adding that in 30 years of practice he’s never seen anything like it. In all seriousness, Mark is extremely happy to be down to a DD cup size and can now enjoy more active duties without snapping bras. Congratulations to her.
Still, we have to admit it’s a little tough to see all that love go away.
