Jasmine Tridevil, a 21 year Tampa, Florida woman has claimed that she has paid $20 000 to surgically add a third breast in her bid to become a reality star. Of course the question now is she having us or not?
Tridevil not her real name, insists she was rejected by more than 50 doctors who feared violating ethical codes (you think?) before she found a willing surgeon who would perform the procedure.
Now, she has hired a camera crew to follow her documenting the ‘struggles’ she faces as a three-breasted woman.
While the procedure is possible (who would have thought?), surgeons are barred from carrying out any operations that could be harmful to ‘human dignity’.
The ethical code outlined by the American Board of Plastic Surgeons dictates that ‘the principal objective of the medical profession is to render services to humanity with full respect for human dignity.’
However, Jasmine Tridevill claims she found a surgeon who agreed to carry out the surgery if their name would be kept a secret.
She says the medic took tissue from her abdomen and used it to fashion the third breast – a procedure commonly used for normal breast enhancements.
In a bid to convince followers, the massage therapist has shared dozens of pictures of her new look in custom made bikinis on her Facebook fan page in a bid to convince followers the surgery was legitimate.
To boot the now aspiring reality starlet (welcome to America kids…) has proudly declared that she been disowned by her mother and sister, ‘who ran out the room in disgust‘ when they saw what she had done.
‘My mum ran out of the door. She won’t talk to me. She won’t let my sister talk to me,’ Tridevil said.
‘My dad… he really isn’t happy. He is kind of ashamed of me but he accepted it.’
However, Jasmine Tridevil insists she has no regrets as she prepares to send pilot episodes of her self-produced reality show titled Jasmine’s Jugs (naturally…) to MTV.
‘My whole dream is to get this show on MTV,’ she told Real Radio 104.1.
‘I’m dumping every penny I have into this. If this doesn’t work, I’m through.’
Responding to the purported third breast surgery, Scot Glasberg, president-elected of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons told the UK’s dailymail that the surgery was ‘worse than unethical’ and ‘harmful to society’.
Reiterating: ‘This violates every ethical principle not just in surgery but in medicine as well.
‘We look to enhance the norm. This is not the norm.
‘Nothing speaks louder than the fact that the surgeon required the patient to sign a non-disclosure form.’
Glasberg says the case will likely be reported to the national board of plastic surgeons and if the surgeon is tracked down they will likely have their license revoked.
‘I meet with patients twice before the operation to make sure they are doing it for the right reasons.
‘These are not the right reasons, this is sensationalist and quite frankly horrible.’
Despite scheduling interviews, creating a fan page, and hiring a film crew, Tridevil insists her apparent surgery was not an attempt become famous.
‘I got it because I wanted to make myself unattractive to men,’ she claims. ‘Because I don’t want to date anymore.’
At present, web commentators are undecided if Jasmine Tridevil is simply having us all on or if she is simply a young woman in desperate need of psychological guidance…what do you think?
UPDATE: The story is looking increasingly like a hoax. Snopes reports that Tridevil’s domain is registered to Alisha Hessler, who runs a ‘massage parlor’ in Florida called Golden Touch which boasts that it is a ‘provider of Internet hoaxes since 2014‘ and a ‘specialist in massage for three-breasted women.’
