Mom of two, Samantha grew breasts in her armpits and ultimately decided to seek out plastic surgeons to remove her “pitties.”
The Los Angeles mom noticed the masses when she was pregnant with her oldest child, Kendall.
According to E! News, the mom appeared on a May 18 episode of Botched looking for help from Drs. Paul Nassif and Terry Dubrow.
“I have two sets of boobs and although you would think that would be fun, it’s not,” she shared in the episode. “Having four breasts is the pits.”
Six months after Samantha gave birth to her baby girl, she got pregnant with her second child — and the pitties grew worse.
The mom revealed her masses grew to the size of “half a softball” or “a B-cup.” And while the “pitties” don’t have nipples, they would leak whenever she tried to breastfeed.
The pitties were also “sore and tender to the touch,” she revealed.
“It just looks so painful,” her husband Frank was seen informing the doctors in the program. “It’s something I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy.”
And while the condition is rare it happens when breast tissue in the armpit engorges during lactation.
While usually, the condition will go away on its own, Samantha’s pitties have managed to stick around years after her pregnancies.
Once she was cleared for any thyroid issues, the doctors decided to use liposuction to remove as much of the tissue as possible.
And just like that — the surgery was a success!
“It’s crazy. It’s still so surreal that I’m here,” she said after waking up from surgery.
“I can’t wait to wear what I want and just be more confident. I’m just so excited. I’m so thankful for Dr. Dubrow. He just did what he knew he needed to do.”
