I realised that my breasts would never be the same again and I wasn't going to have the outcome I had hoped for.'
Left with no nipples and uneven breasts, Ms Damiani became depressed and was left so self-conscious, she couldn't even bear to be touched by her boyfriend Wesley.
'I was in a really bad way,' she remembers. 'Everything seemed to be going really badly. I suffered from depression for a while. I still am. I'm still on antidepressants.
'A year and a half down the line, I still feel really ugly. We were literally on the verge of breaking up. It was really hard.'
But despite her past experience and fear of going under the knife, Ms Damiani has finally taken action to fix her ruined breasts and has had another operation, this time with surgeon Paul Harris, to mend the damage.
Two operations, one of them nipple reconstruction, later and she says she is finally learning to enjoy life again.
