According to NBC New York, that was not
good enough for Hershey so when doctors in Texas refused to
augment her already ginormous breast any bigger she went to

And even though medics have warned that her
breasts are in danger of exploding, she does not seem to care.
Her British ex-boyfriend started paying for
her plastic surgery, but she left him after he begged her
to stop. She said: “I loved him very much but I had to leave
him to follow my dream.”
Why go to such extremes? Sheyla
Hershey said she didn't start out with the goal of
having the largest breasts in the world.
"I started because I had a picture of Dolly
Parton in my head since I was 9, and I just love the way
her body is," Hershey said. "I thought, 'I want to have that

for two years. She had her first breast augmentation in 2001
and 10 more since -- all in her home country. When she reached
her previous FFF size, she spoke with a U.S. doctor about
going bigger. "He said that's crazy," she said. "He didn't
think this was attractive at all."
Plus, she said, she was already over the
maximum allowable size in the U.S. So she headed back to Brazil.
"I had a dream, and I didn't stay home and dream of my dream
-- I just went for it," she said.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has not
approved implants larger than 800 ccs, FDA spokeswoman Siobhan
DeLancey said. That's .85 of a quart per implant. Hershey's

the shock of the feet hitting the ground - this force is transmitted
through the knees, spine and pelvis. Large implants may increase
this force over time as you as supporting additional weight,
especially in the shoulders and spine."
"Getting breast implants which are too big can
get in the way of efficient arm movement. Part of running
is the forward and back movement of both arms as we run. Typically

Large breast implants can also hinder arm movement.
Having such large implants is tough on Hershey's
frame. She performs special exercises regularly and gets massages
one a week. "I have good care for my back," she said. "If
you don't have care for it, you're going to have pain."
Hershey said her husband likes how her breasts look,
but that he's concerned about her health and wants her to
cease with the implants. She said doesn't plan to keep the
implants in long-term because of the health difficulties.
