Speaking to Be at a China Diner event in Sydney's Double Bay on Wednesday, the 36-year-old explained she'd be having a breast "reconstruction" after her radiation cancer treatment affected her original implants from 12 years ago.
"I had breast implants when I was 24, at school I was always called sultana tits," she divulged. "I had my boobs done and they’ve been fine for 12 years," she continued, before revealing that six weeks of daily radiation treatment resulted in her being affected by "capsular contracture, whereby basically the implant hardens and/or can ripple".
Capsular contracture often occurs when internal scar tissue forms a tight capsule around a breast implant.
According to BreastCancer.org, "radiation therapy given after reconstruction surgery can increase the risk of a scar tissue capsule forming" and "a surgeon can break up the scar tissue and replace the implant if necessary".
Roxy, who was treated for breast cancer following a diagnosis in mid 2016, says her decision to go under the knife comes after she had a second breast cancer scare in October this year.
"The reason the second scan came about, we didn’t actually know at the time, was that that capsule contracture of the breast implant was actually causing bumps so it wasn’t cancerous," she explained.
"I was fine throughout my radiation process, I never had any issues with the fact that I had the implants but then in the last sort of two months, I started to notice in pictures that one of my boobs is up near my chin and the other was down near my ankles."
She continued: "We found out it wasn’t cancerous after scans and ultrasounds and a biopsy. So I’ve got to get my boobs redone [with silicon], I’ll have a reconstruction in early December".
Roxy's world was turned upside down back in July 2016, when she was diagnosed with breast cancer three weeks after husband Oliver Curtis was sent to jail for insider trading.
She then underwent a partial removal and six weeks of radiation, and will also have to take a cancer blocker tablet for the next decade.
"Look, I’m very lucky," she reflected on Wednesday. "And I suppose that’s why I’ve spent so much time towards cancer charities and so on, because we’re so lucky in this country with the resources and information that we’ve got and the medical options we’ve got".
