An Australian woman has been rejected from getting a breast enhancement because she's too skinny.
Tara Jayne McConachy appeared on The E! channel's show Botched to see whether plastic surgeons Paul Nassif and Terry Dubrow could help her.
She explained that she previously had much larger breast implants but took them out because they gave her back problems.
The 32-year-old nurse from Melbourne wants to up her cup size because she noticed wrinkling around the top of her breasts.
She was hoping larger breasts would smooth out the skin and give her a more youthful appearance.
She told the show: "Everything is tiny on me except for my tatas [breasts]... I'm on a quest for a bigger chest! I currently have 540 CCs [of breast implant silicone], and I'm just not happy with them at all.
"Basically, the part that I don't like about them is that they're not big enough."
The self-described 'plastic doll' admits surgery helps give her confidence and loves the attention her appearance gets when she steps out in public.
"I just thought getting plastic surgery and having bigger boobs, that's going to be the wow factor and exactly what I need," she said.
However, her hopes were shattered when she knocked on Dr Nassif's and Dr Dubrow's door.
Hoping they would green light the surgery and give her the 'tatas' she has always dreamed of, they knocked her back.
They explained the 'rippling effect' that was happening to her breasts at the moment was due to her previously large implants.
The surgeons said the skin around the top is very thin and if she gets 1,000CCs of silicon implanted then it could be very damaging.
During the consultation, she revealed she is just 45kgs and that was a major concern for the plastic surgeons.
They told her to gain 5 per cent of her body weight and then she could reignite the conversation about getting approval for her breast augmentation.
But they said they would only increase her cup size if it was safe.
A friend who was in the room with Tara joyfully said they would go and eat some burgers immediately so they could bump up her weight.
But Dr Nassif told Botched that Ms McConachy shouldn't just focus on the numbers when she steps on the scales.
"I'm really concerned about Tara's overall wellbeing. Not just as it relates to surgery, but she really needs to get both physically and mentally healthy," he said.
