DANIELLE Lloyd has shunned plastic surgery after she woke up in a “pool of gunky blood” following a botched boob job.
In 2012, the former WAG nearly bled to death after a breast implant ruptured and a blood clot formed in her chest.
Danielle, 35, had her first boob job aged 18 but says she now chooses to have non-invasive beauty treatments because of her terrifying experience.
She told ITV’s Lorraine today: “I still like to go and get my tummy tightened because I have had four children.
“But it’s not going to kill me by having it done. That’s the most important thing.”
The ex glamour model nearly died when her second breast enlargement became infected and her boobs swelled to the size of her head – as things took a turn for the worst.
She added to host Christine Lampard: “After one of the surgeries my breasts started to swell and they were the size of my head. I spoke to the doctors and the surgeons and they said, ‘No no, it’s normal to have swelling.’
“I had a little nick on the side of my left breast and it got infected and I woke up one more morning in a pool of bloody, gunky water and it was terrifying.”
Danielle was then rushed to hospital where doctors battled to save her life.
She continued: “They said they needed to get the implants out straight away. They rushed me down, put me under anaesthetic, but as they took the implants out they found a massive blood clot and I started to bleed to death.
“It was honestly touch and go. I didn’t know if I was going to make it.”
The star was flooded with guilty, for “putting her life in danger” and warned young women to steer clear of plastic surgery – after a woman died during bum surgery in Turkey.
She said: ” I regret every single day doing that to my body.
“It was the in thing to have big boobs back then. Now it’s big bums.

“Luckily enough the first (boob job) I did I went to a reputable surgeon. But it’s a shame I didn’t stop there.
“I carried on and I was sort of looking for perfection. But what is perfect?”
Danielle was left with scarring, and has had a total of nine ops on her chest to rectify the damage done.
