Faye Winter from Love Island plans to reverse her boob job after breast cancer scare: “I won’t want my cleavage out all the time when I’m 30”

Love Island’s Faye Winter has revealed her plans to have her boob job reversed after having two breast implant surgeries. 

The star, 28, had her first boob job just a month after her 18th birthday to go from her natural AA bra size to a C. Five years later she had another surgery to go to an F cup.

But after a recent cancer scare she now wants her F-cup implants removed, saying: ‘When you have a scare you see your body through a different lens’. 

She found a lump in her breast earlier this year and luckily was given the all clear, but it changed her perspective on her body. 

She told Closer: ‘When I turn 30 I’ll think about reversal surgery, I definitely don’t want to be this size forever. I’m over it. Do I really want implants in my thirties? I’ll be at a stage where I don’t want my cleavage out all the time or have guys staring at that part of me.

‘I want to be able to appreciate my body in a more natural way and when you have a scare you see your body through a different lens. 

‘It’s taken me a while but I’ve realised that looks don’t define who I am. I’ve been through a lot but I don’t regret any of it because I wouldn’t be as strong as I am now or as passionate on bringing about change.’

Last month Faye revealed she ‘didn’t sleep for days’ after suffering her ‘devastating’ breast cancer scare.

She took to her Instagram to share a snap of herself during a doctors visit after finding a lump in her breast earlier this year.

Faye, who reassured her followers that she was given the ‘all-clear’ back in June, penned a lengthy post to urge followers to check themselves, in honour of Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Faye captioned her snap: ‘October is a month to spread awareness for breast cancer, words we hope that none of us will hear in our life time however 1 in 8 of us unfortunately will. The words are frightening, devastating and you will feel completely over whelmed.’ 

‘The positive thoughts of ”it will be nothing” with the voice in the back of your head saying ‘what if’.

‘I was so lucky back in June to be given the all clear on a lump I had found a couple of months prior and so many will also be given good news but it doesn’t make those few weeks or months any easier.’

Faye proceeded to tell her followers that checking your breasts for lumps is essential. 

‘Checking our breasts and pecks is essential. It’s okay to be nervous and scared but don’t put it off and don’t shy away because getting it checked is the first step to getting the all clear.’ 

She also revealed how she felt when the first image of herself in the waiting room was taken. 

‘Here I was sat with my mum, hadn’t slept for days before going in for my scans thinking ‘what else could go wrong this year’ but yet putting in to perspective how small those issues were, on top of trying to put on a brave face. 

‘I felt like everything was falling apart and I just needed some good news, I’m so lucky I had such amazing family, friends and Bonnie around me checking in and supporting me in such a strange time.’ 

And to conclude, the beauty also touched on how glad she was to finally tell her followers her story. 

‘I wasn’t sure on sharing my little story to begin with because 1 it seemed so tiny in comparison to others and 2 because I had so much going on I wanted to sweep it under the carpet, however as soon as I shared the amount of messages I got from you saying you’d checked was incredible and I’m so glad I did.

‘Now by the time you’ve read this you could of checked yours! So do it now.’ 

Followers of the former Love Island star then flocked to the comments to praise Faye for sharing her story. 

One follower wrote ‘Just had my cancer removed yesterday. Thank you for sharing this’. 

While another added ‘Thanks for sharing, cancer survivor myself’. 

It came after Faye sparked concern among her fans after revealing she’d found a lump in her breast back in June. 

Taking to her Instagram Stories, the reality TV star shared a candid video revealing she was undergoing a mammogram and ultrasound to get the lump checked out after discovering it while on holiday with her pals. 

Faye urged her followers to ‘have a little check’ of their breasts and went onto praise the ‘incredible’ NHS for their care.

In the clip, Faye explained she first found the lump while she was applying sun cream during her holiday abroad.

She later updated her fans by revealing she was heading back to the hospital soon and thanked her followers for their messages of support. 

On her Instagram Stories, Faye said: ‘I know that a lot of you have noticed that I have been quite quiet on here, especially since my girls holiday when you guys were like ”where’s all [my] content.”

‘I didn’t want to let anyone in too soon and I didn’t feel like there was a right time to speak to you guys but I feel like today is probably the day for it.

‘If one person has a check today then I will be so happy.

‘I was putting my sun cream and I went ”oop, what is she, she is knew to my body.” And I found a little lump.

‘So I went to my doctors and two weeks ago and they referred me and I’m going to have a mammogram and an ultrasound and make sure everything’s OK and make sure it’s nothing sinister.

‘I’m sure it’s nothing and it’s just a cyst or something but it has played on my mind and I haven’t really been able to get it out of my mind which is fine.’

Later that day, Faye updated her followers with another selfie, writing: ‘Thank you all for the support today. I’m going back to hospital on Thursday. Will keep you all updated.

‘I’m just going to leave this link here for anyone that needs to know how to check or what to look out for. Love you all,’ before posting a link to Coppafeel website. 

What is breast cancer, how many people does it strike and what are the symptoms?  

Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers in the world. Each year in the UK there are more than 55,000 new cases, and the disease claims the lives of 11,500 women.

What is breast cancer?

Breast cancer develops from a cancerous cell which develops in the lining of a duct or lobule in one of the breasts.

When the breast cancer has spread into surrounding breast tissue it is called an ‘invasive’ breast cancer. Some people are diagnosed with ‘carcinoma in situ’, where no cancer cells have grown beyond the duct or lobule.

Most cases develop in women over the age of 50 but younger women are sometimes affected. Breast cancer can develop in men, though this is rare.

Staging means how big the cancer is and whether it has spread. Stage 1 is the earliest stage and stage 4 means the cancer has spread to another part of the body.

The cancerous cells are graded from low, which means a slow growth, to high, which is fast-growing. High-grade cancers are more likely to come back after they have first been treated.

What causes breast cancer?

A cancerous tumour starts from one abnormal cell. The exact reason why a cell becomes cancerous is unclear. It is thought that something damages or alters certain genes in the cell. This makes the cell abnormal and multiply.

There are some risk factors that can increase the chance of developing breast cancer, such as genetics.

What are the symptoms of breast cancer?

The usual first symptom is a painless lump in the breast, although most breast lumps are not cancerous and are fluid filled cysts, which are benign. 

The first place that breast cancer usually spreads to is the lymph nodes in the armpit. If this occurs you will develop a swelling or lump in an armpit.
