Stephanie March is personally detailing her scary experience with plastic surgery in a tell-all published on Refinery 29 this week.

The 41-year-old actress, known for her role on "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," said she sought out breast implants for the wrong reasons at a time when she felt like her life was "disintegrating."

"Couldn’t get a job I wanted on camera, couldn’t get attention for my production projects, couldn’t travel the world far enough or fast enough or immerse myself in philanthropy enough to make it all go away," she wrote. "It was like watching a glacier cleave into giant chunks: massive and seemingly well beyond my control. See, the other thing that was happening was that my marriage of nearly 10 years (and 14 together) was falling apart."

While admitting the experience hasn't completely soured her on plastic surgery, March described horrible complications that accompanied her breast augmentation.

"One morning in early October when I sat up in bed and felt a sickening wet mucus sliding down my chest," she wrote. "It was everywhere, soaking my shirt and the sheets. My right implant was infected and the seams of the scar on my right breast had burst."

A subsequent infection and rupture sent her to the hospital on Christmas Eve and, eventually, she gave up on the augmentation, admitting that her body was allergic to the implants and later having them removed.

March and celebrity chef Bobby Flay divorced last year, the New York Daily News noted, adding that she is currently dating hedge fund manager Daniel Benton.

"And yes, a new person has seen my breasts," March wrote. "It felt awkward at first: Those scars announce news about my medical history a little earlier than I might have wanted to share it . . .  He seems not to mind. In fact, he has been quite tender about it."

March seems to be in a happier state.

"All that I had, all that I was, from the beginning, was all I needed to be . . . I have nothing to hide," she wrote.
