Voiceover: At just 22 Kayleigh Jones feels her whole life has been thrown out of balance by her chest.

Kayleigh: At school I did get quite a few nicknames and they were really cruel. They’d say ‘big tat, little tat’ and ‘you’re deformed’. It’s really not nice. You just don’t want to go to school at all when they start. There wasn’t really a moment when I thought ‘Oh, I’m different’. It was gradually when I started noticing other girls going out in low cut tops and they’d look quite the same size and then I’d look at myself and think there’s something not quite right.

Dr Pixie: Hi Kayleigh, I’m Pixie. How are you?

Kayleigh: I’m alright thank you.

Dr Pixie: Take a seat. Now, what can I do for you?

Kayleigh: I’ve got a problem with my breasts. I’ve got one really small one and one large one. I don’t feel like a complete woman at all.

Dr Pixie: Have you been to see a doctor about it?

Kayleigh: I’ve been to see quite a few of my doctors but they’ve always said, well some of them have said ’love yourself for who you are’. I’d just like to get on with it.

Dr Pixie: How does that make you feel when someone says ‘love yourself for who you are’?

Kayleigh: It just makes me feel I can’t love myself. I need help and it just feels like nobody is willing to help me. I just feel like a freak.

Dr Pixie: I see you’ve got your fairly sizable chicken fillet in there, haven’t you?

Kayleigh: I have.

Dr Pixie: Can you just pop your two hands up over your head? Up to 90% of people have one breast bigger than the other. If it’s affecting you then it’s really, really important to get it sorted. Pop your clothes on and get yourself a bit more comfortable. What would your feeling be about maybe seeing a specialist and seeing if there is anything more radical that can be done it?

Kayleigh: I’d like that, just to see what they can do for me.

Dr Pixie: I think for you, for moving forward, it would probably be the best option.

Kayleigh: It would change me completely I think, I’d have a lot more confidence.

Dr Pixie: Brilliant, what I can do is arrange for a specialist to see you and do an assessment and see if we can take it from there.

Voiceover: For Kayleigh, surgery feels like her only option. Most of us have breasts that are different sizes but Kayleigh’s were so markedly mismatched that she is prepared to undergo a complicated and, at nearly £6,500, very expensive operation to bring an end to years of teasing and unhappiness.

Kayleigh: My minds all over the place. I just want to run out of the door at the moment. I tried not to think about it coming up to the date but today it’s kicked in that its really going to happen. Tomorrow I’ll be feeling a bit different.

Voiceover: Firstly, Dr Kavouni has to insert an implant into the smaller breasts. This is an exact match to the larger D cup. The larger breast now needs to be lifted up to match the shape of the new implant. Kayleigh won’t be able to breast feed on this side, but the implant on the other side has gone under her breast tissue leaving everything in full working order. Hopefully soon Kayleigh will be walking away with a matching pair.

Voiceover: Back to see the doctors is Kayleigh Jones. She’d had different sized breasts since she was a teenager and longed to be treated as a normal person again.

Kayleigh: I was bubbly but I’m like an old lady now, I’ve got no life whatsoever.

Voiceover: After the delicate operation to balance out the shape and size of Kayleigh’s breasts she’s now healed enough to show Dr McKenna the results.

Dr Pixie: Good to see you again.

Voiceover: So, has Kayleigh now found a happy medium?

Dr Pixie: Now, let’s just have a look from back here. That’s fantastic. So this side here, Kayleigh, was the uplift?

Kayleigh: It was, yeah.

Dr Pixie: You can just see where that nipple has been put back on again can’t you? And then this side is the implant. Fab, it’s brilliant. No more chicken fillets no more…

Kayleigh: In the bin.

Hi I'm 25 years old, ive exclusively breastfed two children the first for 12 months and I'm currently breastfeeding my 10 month old since birth. My boobs have never been big and ive always had slight hatred towards them but since having my second child they are just disgusting. My nipples point to the floor it is so bad, sometimes I wish I could just slit my wrists and end it all its making me hate myself. I've lost a lot of weight since I had my baby and I did the first time around too. I am a stay at home mum and my partner works two jobs but we still can't afford a boob job or similar. Is there any help/advice you could give me? I really am getting to the end of my tether. At 25 i should still feel womanly but really I feel old and saggy.

I know a bit how you feel I breastfed for 18months and my already saggy breasts got even worse. I am 29yrs and just had surgery to uplift them in recovery as I type this. Had to take out a loan but glad I did as I was so miserable with them. If you feel this bad talk to your GP its always worth sdking if its affecting you this much x

Is it possible to get in contact with the Breast Surgeons who have featured in the show as I realise there is no such thing as risk free surgery but feel I may be more confident with their advice?

After breast feeding two children I am 36 and have lost my breasts, and can't stand to look at them anymore. Did the show come back with the details of the surgery company/ surgeon who did this for the girl in the video? I am very keen to have the surgery but do not want to do lots of research and it still feels like pot luck with surgeons. I don't want to end up with a poor and unhappy result

I have one breast which is 2 cup sizes bigger than the other one, a huge difference, I feel very uncomfortable and it gets me down. I cant afford surgery, is there any other help I could get. I am only 22 years old.

I really wish I could have this surgery done. I have always had one breast slightly bigger than the other, then one day it just seemed like the bigger right breast grew an entire cup size. It is actual painful at times for me to lie on my stomach on it and it feels like there is a lump inside. I have seen several doctors about the lump, had ultrasounds and a mammogram and no help at all.

Hi I'm 23 yrs old, one of my breast is a B and the other is like a training bra. I'm so embarrassed close family && friends tease me from time to time I laugh it off with them but really I just want to disappear. The first time I noticed the issue was while wearing a sports bra and a tank to basketball practice around the age of 14 two years later I brought it to my mothers attention . She accompanied myself the doctor told me that If some one loves me then it doesn't matter. My boyfriend of two and a half years never mentions it but I know he knows because we have children it was worse while expecting and it kills me I can't be normal . It's a mental / physical stressful uses for myself. I look so stupid with tanks, bathing suit, any type of fitting top or dress, halted etc . Lord knows I don't have the money for surgery I know I really need it. I'm too embarrass to even ask for help. Do you all have any suggestions?
