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

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