But her real-life story has had its own share of challenges. She’s been open about needing a big surgery after 11 years of struggling to breathe.

Is Lucy Pargeter Ill? Exploring Her Struggles with Health Issues and Surgeries!!
She explained that it all began after she had surgery to get breast implants. Lucy waited for a few days after the surgery, and then she decided she couldn’t wait any longer and went out without wearing a bra.
“I got home, got in the bath, and put my cream on that they used to give you for the scars, and my finger just disappeared inside my boob. I’d been out, and I’d been dancing all night and obviously, it had split. I hadn’t felt a thing because the anesthetic was still in there.”
“I held my t*t together going through Regent’s Park in London over the speed bumps, thinking ‘My boob’s going to fall out on the floor’. Got to his office he said I’m cleaning the car, give me half an hour. Then sewed me up without any anesthetic and a whiskey. He said ‘I’ve got nothing in the office – have a whiskey. Sewn back up with a glass of whiskey and a needle, lying on a couch in a consultant’s room.”
Lucy Pargeter Reflects on Life After Removing Her Breast Implants: Her Honest Thoughts and Feelings!!
Lucy Pargeter called her new breasts “toxic bags” because they made it hard for her to breathe, and she felt pain right after the surgery. She talked to The Sun and said:
“They are out. I’m as flat as a pancake, I look awful but feel good. When I woke up in recovery, the first thing I did was panic because I could breathe – I could take in a massive breath.”
“I thought they were trying to give me too much oxygen – I panicked. I forgot what it was like to have a full lung of air. I mean, it’s amazing – I can breathe.”
But Lucy Pargeter faced more than just trouble with breathing. Like many women who get their breasts made bigger, she also has anxiety and problems with her joints.
She appeared in a TV documentary on Channel 4 called Dispatches. The documentary talked about cases where people got sick after having breast surgery.
