<p><span></span>In an exclusive interview with <em>Life & Style</em>, <em>Tabatha's Salon Takeove</em>r star <strong>Tabatha Coffey</strong> opens up about how the boob job that nearly killed her 20 years ago would up changing her life -- for the better. "I don't regret it, because it was such a great learning experience for me," Tabatha tells <em>Life & Style</em>. "But it was a hell of a lesson to learn."<br />
In 1992, Tabatha got a boob job to upgrade from a B-cup to a D. But Tabatha's plastic surgeon nicked an artery during her surgery and four days later, it ruptured, causing internal bleeding. Tabatha's surgeon operated, but reinserted the infected implants instead of fresh ones, causing an infection. Even after she fully remove the implants, she had to wear a catheter bag for three months to drain the infection.
Now, years later, she's sharing it all in her new memoir, It's Not Really About the Hair. Tabatha reflects on the experience, telling Life & Style, "I can re-evaluate the fact that those boobs were never going to make me perfect. It was life-changing in the way that I look at things, especially my own body image. It was a good lesson to learn: to accept me as me."
