A woman was jealous of her mother’s good looks and tried to get breasts like her.

However, the daughter was devastated after her breast implants surgery failed, leaving her disfigured.

Amy Hoskins, 22, of Dorking, England, wanted to look like her mother, Katie, who had breast implants that gave her cleavage and self confidence.

With the support of her mother, she began looking for a surgeon to enlarge her breast size to 32G.

At first, Amy was happy with her new look, but then her implants began to move. Amy’s breasts became saggy as her areolas increased in size, but not in proportion with her breasts.

Amy returned to the original surgeon, who said that he could fix the damage - but she would have to pay for the repairs. Since she could not afford it, Amy had to learn to live with her weird breasts.

She said that this had a great impact on her self-esteem and relationships with both her boyfriend as well as with her mother.

Amy refuses to take her clothes off in front of her boyfriend because she was embarrassed of the way she looked.

She also refuses to allow her boyfriend to visit her mother as she was jealous of her mother because she has got what she wanted, Amy said about her mother's breasts.

Katie said that the situation made her upset as well. “It was hard for me to watch my daughter suffering while knowing that she wanted to be like her mother,” Katie said.

“She was never insecure before and now she is the most insecure person you will ever meet,” Katie added.

Amy reached out to the producers of the television show On Botched Up Bodies, and finally met plastic surgeon Patrick Mallucci in London, who agreed to do corrective surgery on her.

The doctor recommended much smaller breast implants to match her petite body. He also told her that the surgery could leave her with some scars.

Dr. Mallucci operated on Amy, and she was delighted with the end results.

She said: “I'm so grateful for what Dr. Mallucci has done. Now, I have a pair of breasts like my mother and that's what I always wanted.”

Mother allowed to starve herself to death after killing her 3 children

Laurelie, Anais, and Loic

(Scroll down for video) A mother in Canada, is dead after she was given permission to starve herself to avoid a murder trial.

The mother who is accused of killing her three young children, starved herself to death while in custody before she could be put on trial for her crimes.

Sonia Blanchette, 35, allegedly killed her three children: Laurelie, 5, Loic, 4, and Anais, 2, after losing custody of them.

The children were found dead in her apartment in Blanchette, Drummondville, near Montreal, Quebec. The autopsy revealed that two of the children were drowned in the bathtub while the oldest died of suffocation and drowning.

Blanchette lost custody of the children to their father earlier that year, and she was only allowed to see them on weekends.

Blanchette was charged with first-degree murder and was awaiting trial for more than two years. According to her lawyers, she decided to kill herself rather than facing a jury.

Blanchette was sent to a psychiatric facility, where prison officials reportedly planned to keep her alive by force-feeding her through a tube.

However, her lawyer fought for her right to starve herself to death. Attorney Jean-Pierre Menard said that he intervened on her behalf so that Blanchette be allowed to commit suicide.

Under the law, anyone found mentally competent is authorized to refuse treatment of any kind. According to Menard, Blanchette’s biggest hope was to rejoin her children.

The children's father, Patrick Desautels, said he wanted Blanchette to stay alive in order to face the consequences of her actions, but he admitted that her death saved him the agony of a trial.

Blanchette reportedly weighed about 80 pounds when she died. Staff at the Sacre-Coeur Hospital in Montreal, had sedated her so she would suffer less.
