A glamour model said she felt like a 'monster' after a botched boob job caused her breast implants to slide around and even disappear under her skin.
Amanda Marsh, 31, from Orlando in Florida, decided to get bigger breasts to boost her confidence for photoshoots.
But she regretted her decision after a pocket of air formed around the implants that allowed it to slide around.
Rather than staying in place, the implants were able to travel all the way up into her arm pit and under her collar bone, leaving Amanda with a cavity around her nipples, the Daily Mail reported.
It left the stunning blonde hiding her chest under baggy tops, even during intimate moments with her partner.
In April, the glamour model underwent corrective surgery and can now proudly pose for photos again.
Amanda, a psychology and social work student, said: "The day I realised the implants could slide up and under my collarbone was when I knew something was wrong.
"Not only did the implant disappeared entirely, but a cavity was created where it normally sat, around my pectoral muscle.
"I became incredibly aware of this. It took all of the new confidence away, and left me feeling deformed and embarrassed.
"I joked about this with intimate partners, but inside it killed me.
"Getting photos back to review and narrow down was a nightmare. I immediately had to scan them to look for the implants being too far apart, sliding over, sliding up around my collar bone.'
As a child Amanda struggled with her image and was often self-conscious of her smaller chest.
She said: "I was always overweight as a child and teen, and when I began to lose all of the weight, I realised I had almost zero breast tissue.
"The women in my family would tease me. They would joke that a bra was the only thing I needed a size 'small' for. Truthfully, the smallest bras in stores did not even fit me.
"I found myself keeping my shirt on during sex, because I felt so terrible and weird about my body.
"I personally found it impossible to feel feminine, sexual, or attractive with a completely flat chest."
She added: "Finally, I decided to have surgery because I am a nude model. After years of working hard to lose weight, to change my appearance, to find the confidence to stand in front of a camera, I loved the images I was able to create, but the breast size issue was always something that stuck out and almost absorbed each picture."
Three years ago, in 2014, Amanda underwent a boob job and at first was happy with the results.
"I stopped dressing like an insecure teenager, and began dressing in a more feminine way. Mature, confident, sexy.
"Shopping for bras and lingerie became one of my favourite things, because I'd never really done it before."
However, soon after, Amanda began to notice that the implants moved and would slide under the skin.
She said: "I realised I could feel a 'sliding under the skin' sensation as one or both implants would move over to the side.
"The implant settled entirely in my arm pit, and could be manually pushed back up to its original position easily, painlessly.
"If I pushed it back into place and let go, it would just slide, fairly quickly, back into my arm pit."
Amanda found it hard to wear bikinis and be intimate with people for fear her implants would slip.
However, when she returned to her original surgeon, he denied anything was wrong and instead pulled out her 'before' photos, claiming she was better off now.
She said: "I was entirely caught off-guard by the entire nature of the visit.
"He shrugged and he told me they still looked great, and some moving around was normal.
"He wrapped up abruptly by telling me that it wasn't something that could be fixed.
"I told him I felt like a monster, and at this point I regretted having the surgery done at all."
Unsatisfied and unhappy, Amanda decided to get a second opinion with Dr. Oppenheimer, who straight away noted that the pockets were a lot wider than they should be.
The plastic surgeon suggested a revision and happy with his professional manner, Amanda booked surgery two weeks later.
Now the blonde beauty is celebrating finally feeling proud of her body.
She added: "I have never been so relieved or validated in my life, since having this fixed.
"I feel so much more normal. Proud of my body. Not constantly worried or paranoid or regretful.
"It's been a game changer. I'm so sad I didn't do it sooner, and thought I was stuck with the mistake.
"I wasted years and a dozen or more photo shoots with a deformed chest, but I'm so happy now. It couldn't have worked out better."
