(Newser) – There are people who have plastic surgery to correct birth defects, those who go under the knife to look more like their favorite celebrities, and then there's a Florida woman who goes by the name Jasmine Tridevil. The 21-year-old massage therapist—who's now being compared to the three-breasted woman in both Total Recall films—says she has added a third breast after a long search to find a surgeon who would actually perform the procedure, 9 News reports. (Skeptics, however, are pretty sure it's a hoax.) Tridevil's stated motivation: She's hoping to land a reality show on MTV, as well as keep men at bay because she "[doesn't] want to date anymore" and figures they'll think the third breast is "weird and gross."

The new breast was created with her own abdomen skin and a silicone implant placed between her two existing breasts, she says, adding that the areola was tattooed on. She tells Real Radio 104.1 via the Huffington Post UK that she contacted 50 doctors before one agreed to her request, saying no one wanted to "[break] the code of ethics" and that the doctor who finally gave in "made me sign a nondisclosure agreement as he was scared he'd get in trouble." Tridevil says her family doesn't approve, telling 9 News, "My mum ran out the door. She won't talk to me. She won't let my sister talk to me. My dad … he really isn't happy. He is kind of ashamed of me, but he accepted it." That's not stopping her from going after her dream, posting pics on her Facebook page and trying to draw MTV's gaze her way with tweets hashtagged #3Boobs #MTV.
