A woman who was left with a deformed backside after having a tumor removed hopes doctors can fix her misshapen buttocks, which are growing up her back.
Appearing on the E! reality series Botched, Sharon from Jesup, Georgia, admits that it has been difficult for her to be intimate with people because she is uncomfortable with how her butt looks.
‘I was born with a tumor on my lower back,’ she explains in a preview clip for Wednesday night’s episode. ‘Doctors then explained that I had spina bifida. They removed the tumor and, as a result of the surgery, my backside started to grow up.’

Misshapen: She explains that her butt started growing up her back after she had a tumor that she was born with removed
Sharon says she always knew there was something wrong with her buttocks because her backside always looked different than her older sister’s.
‘Seeing my sister being able to wear certain outfits that I couldn’t wear, it just made me feel like I didn’t fit in,’ she admits. ‘I’m from the south; I like the southern big butt look.’
In general, Sharon says her family avoided talking about her condition because ‘it would be out there that you’re different’ if they brought it up.
As she got older, she started wearing bigger shirts and pants, and she recalled declining an invitation to a pool party solely because of the appearance of her buttocks.

Hiding: As she got older, Sharon started wearing baggy clothes, and she even skipped a pool party she wanted to go to because she feared people would see her backside
Nightmare: ‘It’s a fear of mine for people to think I’m different,’ she admits
‘I wanted to go, but I was fearful I may be exposed and have to answer questions . . . so I said no that I couldn’t go.’
‘It’s a fear of mine for people to think I’m different,’ she adds. ‘I don’t want to be teased or talked about. Or the butt of anybody’s joke.’
Worst of all, Sharon feels like she has been carrying this ‘burden’ by herself because she doesn’t have anyone to talk to who would understand.
‘I don’t know anybody else with my condition or my situation. It’s sad,’ she says tearfully.
Embarrassed: Sharon also admits that physical intimacy has been a struggle for her
Uncomfortable: ‘I had certain positions I would lay in and I wouldn’t let them touch me a certain type of way,’ she confesses
Sharon goes on to say that physical intimacy has also been a struggle for her.
‘Being intimate has been difficult,’ she says. ‘I had certain positions I would lay in and I wouldn’t let them touch me a certain type of way.
‘I don’t want to look this way, so why should somebody want to be with somebody who looks this way?’ she asks.
After years of feeling insecure about her buttocks, Sharon says she is finally ready to have surgery.
‘I am so sick and tired of it,’ she explains. ‘I’m ready to get it out of my life.’
