Sharon Stone’s Surgeon Enlarged Her Breasts Without Her Consent

Sharon Stone has shared in her memoir, The Beauty of Living Twice, that a surgeon gave her larger breast implants than she asked for during her 2001 reconstructive surgery.

Her surgery came after doctors removed large benign tumors that were “bigger than [her] breast alone.”

When Stone woke up, however, she says realized that the doctor had actually given her large implants.

“When I was unbandaged, I discovered that I had a full cup-size bigger breasts, ones that he said [would] ‘go better with your hip size,’” the actor told The Times. “He had changed my body without my knowledge or consent.”

Stone says she asked the doctor why he altered her body this way and she said his response was that he “thought that [she] would look better with bigger, ‘better’ boobs.”

Her memoir also includes upsetting accounts of how she was sexually harassed in Hollywood, but overcame that to continue her work. In it, she recounts her grandfather, who she says sexually abused herself and her younger sister. She also shares that she wasn’t expecting that shot to be in the film Basic Instinct and was told she had to remove her underwear for the lighting. Stone also recounts her time with Woody Allen, who she defends.

“I am fully aware of the documentary that’s come out recently, but I have zero of those experiences to report.”

“I know that all of these women and men who have been harassed, been raped, had their jobs held for ransom, and been sexually tormented deserve their day in court. I know that to be true. I know that all of the unprocessed rape kits on police shelves everywhere must be processed so that crimes can be solved. This inaction is a true and real crime in itself.”
