A woman is trying to sell her old breast implants on eBay for £500.
Gemma, from Surrey, decided to flog them after getting some new ones put in for her 25th birthday.
She had the previous ones since she was a teenager and hoped there would be someone out there who wanted to take them on.
Gemma (aka misslovegemma), who is 5”2, posted images of the implants when they were both in and out of her breasts.
Her eBay post said: ‘Here I have used 7 year old breast implants that were put in by Harley Street surgeon.
‘I had surgery before my 18th birthday and changed recently before my 25th birthday. Any questions please ask.
‘Selling due to replacement.’

But not everyone thought selling breast implants on eBay is a good idea.
Harley Street cosmetic doctor Dr Dan Dhunna said: ‘While there is nothing stopping someone selling their used implants and someone buying them, to re-use them as such would be extremely ill thought off and I cannot fathom any responsible surgeon or provider doing so.
‘Patient safety is paramount and the PIP Breast implant scandal should act as an omen to anyone even contemplating cutting corners.
‘Implants themselves are sterile medical devices and no manufacturer recommends their reuse, even for the same patient.’

eBay agreed and said sales of breast implants, whether new or used, was prohibited under eBay’s Medical Devices Policy.
It added the listing was being removed.
An eBay spokesman said: ‘We ask our members to make sure their listing follows our guidelines. If it doesn’t, it may be removed.’
Implants cost around £600 each but they would normally be sold as part of the surgery package, which is upwards of £4,000.
