(Newser) – Beware, Heidi Montag, or you could end up like Sheyla Hershey: She achieved her dream of having the world’s largest breasts, but now she’s fighting for her life because of them. The Brazilian model, who now lives in Houston, got all the way up to M-cups before downgrading when she got pregnant last year. After her last breast augmentation in June—the most recent of more than 30 plastic surgeries—Hershey suffered a severe staph infection in both breasts.

Staph infections can be life threatening, but one breast is already improving. The other, however, is still in danger—and might need to be removed entirely. Hershey went into surgery yesterday to have her implants removed, MyFox Houston reports. She says her son has been asking her to downsize her breasts, and she is trying to get over her plastic surgery obsession.
