Other problems included allergic reactions and pain.

In all, 2,210 reports of side-effect were made to watchdog Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency in 2019 — up from 829 the previous year and 792 in 2015.

Ruth Walter, of the British Association of Plastic Surgeons, said: “All women considering implants should seek advice from a top surgeon, and be informed of what the operation entails and all potential complications.”

Complaints of ruptured implants soared from 312 to 579 in 2019.

There were 380 of capsular contracture — where boob jobs turn rock hard.

Concerns about pain almost quadrupled from 48 to 179.
