Pictures: Man who got breast implants to win a bet wants them out after 19 years


Brian had the implants put in after making a bet with a friend in 1997, but now he's begun to regret the procedure.

Magician and gambler Brian  has now appeared on TV show Botched in an effort to have the implants removed.

"In about 1997-ish, I was in some restaurant in Europe and I was with two friends, and his girlfriend at the time was flaunting her boobs," Brian explained in a clip from the episode.

"And I said to my friend, ‘If I had boobs like hers, I could get just as much attention as she would.”

The magician was serious and after negotiating on price with his friend, they agreed on a whopping $100,000 and shook hands.


But Brian wasn't done with betting as once he returned to New York City with the bet set, he sought out a cosmetic surgeon who was willing to carry out the procedure.

Luckily for Brian, the surgeon was also a gambler and so after a few games of backgammon, Brian landed himself the breast implants for free.

"There are very few things I won't do for a bet," he added.

"The first time I showed my friend, he laughed for 10 minutes and said, 'That is the best $100,000 I've ever lost."
