Hannah believed bigger would be better. But her GG boobs proved too much trouble…

A woman has undergone surgery to reverse her 32GG boob job in the hope that she can become a police officer.
In 2007 flat-chested Hannah Sadowska, 33, paid £3,700 for a pair of 32GG breasts.
But soon Miss Sadowska found her huge breasts were a barrier to being taken seriously and in October she had them reduced to a D-cup.
She is now in the process of applying to become a police officer and is currently studying for a criminology degree at Glyndŵr University in Wrexham.
Miss Sadowska, of Wrexham, said: “I could never have wrestled a criminal to the ground with my implants – they were far too large for my frame. I want to be taken seriously, not look like a stripper in a fancy dress copper’s outfit.”
Last week glamour model Katie Price had her breasts reduced by five sizes to a C-cup. The model, known as Jordan, has had seven boob jobs, at her biggest she was a 32FF.
Miss Sadowska said: “When I heard this week that Katie Price has had a breast reduction too, I wasn’t surprised – I know exactly what it feels like when no-one can see past your boobs.
“Now I want to warn other girls not to make the same mistake that Katie and I did. Buy a nice new car or treat yourself to a holiday, but don’t waste thousands on massive new breasts.”
Miss Sadowska always felt self-conscious about her chest after teenage battle with bulimia shrank her breasts from a C-cup to a B-cup.
“I was really chubby when I was 13 and I got really badly bullied for it – which turned me bulimic,” said Miss Sadowska.
“Over a period of eight months I went from 13 stone to seven stone and my chest never developed.
“Even when I managed to put weight back on my breasts never grew. I resorted to stuffing my bra with tissues and chicken filets.
“I was really self-conscious, I never took my top off in front of a man and never wore vests.”
Miss Sadowska always dreamed of having a glamour model’s body, with a bra size to match. In 2007 she took out a £7,000 loan and used more than half of it to pay for a boob job.
Miss Sadowska said: “As I went under I said to the surgeon ‘make my breasts as big as you possibly can – even if I die’.
“I’d gone through years of bullying so to wake up from surgery with a pair of Katie Price breasts felt incredible.
“It took me hours to get up as they were very heavy. I had to get used to carrying all this extra weight around in front of me.”
Busty Miss Sadowska launched a career as a model and launched her own business designing and selling supportive sports bras for women who have undergone breast enlargement surgery.
In 2008 Miss Sadowska gave birth to her son Alexander, now six.
But, struggling to be taken seriously in the business world, Miss Sadowska decided her gigantic bust had to go.
She said: “When I walked into a room everyone just saw my boobs and not me.
“People always assumed I was going out every night and would sleep with anyone – that could not be further from the truth. I was a mum, studying for a university degree while running my own business – but I looked like a stripper.
“I also had some really horrible scarring where from where my uncomfortably large breasts had rubbed against my bra.
“I brought it upon myself. I wanted the glamour girl look and I got it. But it had a negative impact on my health and my life.”
In October this year Miss Sadowska had a private operation to reduced her breasts by four cup sizes.
She said: “I feel like a different girl – I feel calm, content and quiet.
“I’m a lot more together, now when I walk into a room I know people are looking at me and not my chest.”
This year Miss Sadowska decided to apply for a job in the police force. She has taken the entrance exam, been to an interview and passed the medical examination.
She said: “If I didn’t change my look then no one would take me seriously as a police officer.
“But it isn’t just the way I look, it is a very physically demanding job. My giant breasts would put me and my colleagues at risk as I would not be able to fulfill my role as a police officer.
“Once I pass my degree I will hopefully be accepted to the job and now I also have the look to go with it.”
