‘I’m shaking with fear’: Model Rachael Finch is having her 15-year-old breast implants removed after one ruptured and started leaking

Former Miss Universe Australia Rachael Finch is having her breast implants removed after one of them started leaking.

The beauty queen, 32, had undergone the cosmetic procedure at the start of her modelling career when she was just 17 years old.

She announced on Friday she was about to undergo explant surgery because her left implant had ruptured.

‘At [17] I made the decision to have them put in and they have been a part of me for pretty much all my adult life,’ Rachael explained in an Instagram post. 

She said she’d first started having problems with her implants two years ago. 

‘I woke up and noticed one was a little different to the other,’ she said. 

‘I immediately went in for an MRI [and] the doctor told me I had a capsular contracture in my left breast – meaning the skin the body creates around the implant to protect itself has tightened.

‘I was told it was fine, common and nothing needed to be done urgently.’

Rachael, a mother of two, later sought a second opinion after experiencing pain in her left breast and other symptoms she did not associate with her implants at the time.

She was told by a specialist last week that her left implant had in fact ruptured, meaning there was a hole and its contents were leaking out.

Rachael explained that her original MRI two years ago had detected the rupture, but the results were ‘read wrong to me’.

‘I’m excited and I’m also shaking with fear because the implant has been ruptured for so long we won’t know until after the operation just how much damage has been done,’ she added.

The former Dancing with the Stars contestant said she wouldn’t be able to hold her children, Violet, seven, and Dominic, three, for weeks after the surgery. 

She concluded in a message to fans: ‘Please, if you ever feel something is not right with your body, listen to your instinct and don’t stop searching.’

In a separate post on Instagram Stories, Rachael posed for a selfie in her hospital gown and confessed she was ‘the most nervous I’ve been my whole life’.
