Olivia Attwood says she 'paid the price' for getting breast surgery aged 20 for 'fashion'

Olivia Attwood says she 'paid the price' for getting breast surgery aged 20 for 'fashion'

The former Love Island star has had two procedures done on her breasts

Former Love Islander Olivia Attwood has opened up about the impacts of her decision to undergo breast surgery when she was just 20 years old.

Attwood, who is now 32 years old, entered the wider public eye in her mid-20s when she appeared on the third season of Love Island in 2017.

Olivia Attwood became a regular on TOWIE after Love Island.

She went on to become a regular cast member on The Only Way Is Essex, and today (15 August) she appeared as a guest on Loose Women, where the hosts presented a segment titled: "Would you be heartbroken if your kid went under the knife?"

The chat was inspired by Kylie Jenner's admission that she would be 'heartbroken' if her daughter Stormi had cosmetic surgery at the same as she did, which was just 19 years old.

Jenner's revelation prompted host Ruth Langsford to discuss the topic with Attwood, who had a boob job when she was 20 years old.

The reality star has undergone two breast surgeries.

In reference to Jenner's decision to share her regrets, Attwood said: "It's a tough one. I'm a bit torn, is it better late than never or too little too late?

"They've made millions from how they look and telling girls how to look. She's denied procedures in the past, procedures that are high risk."

Attwood went on to explain that she underwent her own procedure as a 'fashion choice', saying: "I wanted big implants because that was the fashion."

Langsford drew attention to comments Attwood had previously made, saying she was around 14 years old when she first considered going under the knife.

Olivia Attwood said she was inspired by celebrities in the media.

"I was hung up on the boob thing from a really young age," Attwood responded. "I used to say to my mum 'I'm going to get a boob job' and she was like 'alright you can do what you want when you've got your own money'.

"I was kind of fixated on it, but I think, even though there was no Instagram then, but I was looking at the way other women looked and it was a fashion thing in the same way the Kardashians have influenced fashion in the way they look... It's scary to do things to yourself for fashion choices, like I did."

After undergoing her first procedure, Attwood ended up having another surgery a few years later due to issues she was experiencing.

"I had to pay the price heavily having my boobs redone seven years later because they didn't fit my body and I was in pain. It was a huge amount of money," she said.
