Chrissy Teigen is looking to make some changes in her life. The model recently revealed that she got breast implants when she was 20 years old, but would like to get them removed now after giving birth to her two children.
“Yeah, I did my boobs when I was about 20 years old,” she told Glamour UK. “It was more for a swimsuit thing. I thought, ‘If I’m going to be posing, laid on my back, I want them to be perky! But then you have babies and they fill up with milk and deflate and now I’m screwed.”
Teigen, whose first modeling gig was for the 2010 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, told the outlet that she kept the “same cup size,” but “filled them out, so they were rounder and firmer.”
Now, after more than a decade with the implants, she revealed that she’d like to get them removed. “I had a quarter ‘teardrop’ cup in the bottom and filled out the breast line. But I want them out now,” she said. “If I could do one thing, it would be to have a lift.”
After Getting Breast Implants a Decade Ago, Chrissy Teigen Wants to Have Them Removed
Now that’s she’s a mom of two, though, Teigen is hesitant to go under the knife again. “I think you’re supposed to replace [implants] every 10 years. But when you have kids, you think about [the risks] of surgery and I think, ‘This is not the way I want to die, in boob surgery,’” she said.
Teigen has always been open about her plastic surgeries, revealing that she had liposuction on her armpits to remove extra fat. “I had an armpit sucked out, which was one of the best things,” she told Refinery29 in 2017.
“It’s a big secret, but I don’t care. It was nine years ago or so. And I had two inches to my armpit. Now it’s back though, so now I’ve gotta pay for liposuction again. It was so easy,” she continued.
“It made me feel better in dresses; I felt more confident. It was the dumbest, stupidest thing I’ve ever done. The dumbest, but I like it, whatever. I have no regrets, honestly.”
When I’m not hanging out with my three-year-old and husband in Brooklyn, I’m busy writing stories for Mamas Uncut and managing PR + Marketing for Magnolia Bakery, based in New York City. On weekends, you can usually find me at a local park or playground pushing my daughter on the swings, “researching” the best almond croissants in Park Slope or launching into impromptu family dance parties at home, the sidewalk or, every once in awhile, a restaurant bathroom. I’m still trying to master the whole parenting thing, but I have learned that copious amounts of coffee, humor and humility are involved on a daily basis.
