The world’s largest breasts have a place in the Guinness Book of World Records. American stripper Maxi Mounds and her size 61MMM breasts were awarded the dubious distinction in 2005 for the world’s largest breasts.
The only problem is that Mounds achieved this record through a dangerous, and now banned procedure called polypropylene string breast implants. In 2005 this procedure was banned in the US and the European Union over safety fears.
Mounds breasts weigh over twenty pounds each and measure 91.44 centimeters around. The surgery that gave her these massive implants is a tricky and controversial surgery. After surgery, the yarn-like implants absorb water slowly which causes a constant irritation to the breast tissue. The tissue then reacts by producing a natural serum that then fills the implant pocket causing enlargement of the breasts in an extremely unhealthy way. It is too soon to know what long term affects this procedure will have on the body, but the potential for dangerous, and even life threatening complications has warranted the ban.
Though this size of breast is rarely seen outside the adult film community, the sheer weight of the implants are a health hazard as they can cause back problems and nerve damage. Experts believe that the surgical implants can cause life threatening infections from the production of the fluid within the body. The long term effects of the procedure are still not known.
