Mia Khalifa Provides Update Following Surgery To Repair Breast Hit By Hockey Puck
| Last updated
Ice hockey is a great sport to watch live, but there's nowt worse than when a stray puck flies out of the rink and smashes you in the breast.
This is exactly what happened to pornstar turned sports presenter, Mia Khalifa, last July while she was supporting her team, the Washington Capitals, during one of their play-off games against Tampa Bay Lightning.
The repercussions for Khalifa were serious, as the puck ended up damaging one of her implants.
Almost seven months later, the 26-year-old has undergone surgery to repair the deflated boob and has provided updates for her 13.9 million Instagram followers.
Fortunately, Khalifa - who was once the highest ranked pornstar on Pornhub - said the four hour operation 'couldn't have gone smoother'... and I think I speak for us all when I say that is a huge relief.
In a post on Instagram, Khalifa took the opportunity to thank her boyfriend and her friend for their support throughout the procedure.
She said: "I am so lucky to have these two amazing men taking care of me during my recovery. Between @robertsandberg's sweet touch and love, and @jerfsolo's comedic relief, I almost wish I could have surgery every month just to get to spend this down time with my favourite boys. I love y'all so much. Thank you for taking such good care of me in your own ways :hearts:"
Khalifa also pointed her fans in the direction of her doctor's Instagram page, where a more detailed medical account of the surgery was provided by Dr Jay Calvert - though he didn't expressly reference Khalifa, due to doctor-patient confidentiality.
He said: "A patient's own body fat is an amazing reconstructive tool. Breast volume can be increased using fat as a graft material. It mimics the breast tissue and tends to survive very well over time. The percentage of graft survival can be variable but with good technique and post-op care, excellent results can be achieved. I am using fat grafting in a good number of my implant cases and a larger number of my revision breast implant cases."
So it seems things went just about as well as they could have for Khalifa, though to be fair she took the accident remarkably well in the immediate aftermath.
In a post on Instagram, she said: "I got hit in the boob with a puck during the game, and I'm 80% sure it ruptured an implant. But the good news is, I got a game used puck from a Capitals Stanley cup playoff game. Worth it."
Whether she still thinks it was 'worth it' seven months and four hours of surgery later is unclear.
