Back in March, Chrissy Teigen celebrated the 10 year anniversary of when she got her breast implants. However, while they were good to her for the last 10 years, she ready to have them removed from her body.
In an interview with Glamour UK, Teigen shared that while she could easily undergo surgery to have the implants removed, she explained that she’s afraid to go under the knife now that she has kids. “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.’”
“I did my boobs when I was about 20 years old. 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.”
Now Teigen has revealed that she has made the difficult decision to have her implants removed. Teigen opened up about the elective surgery after posting a video of herself getting tested for COVID-19 on Twitter.
Teigen captioned the video, “Honestly loved it.” At the time, the public didn’t know the mom of two had decided to get her implant removed. And as a result, the trolls called Teigen privileged for getting tested for COVID-19.
“Everyone in LA can get tested for free,” said in response to one of the negative comments. “I’m having surgery and had to. I’m sorry if this offends you.”
It was on Instagram that Teigen went into more detail, revealing her decision.
“Hi hi! So I posted myself getting a COVID test on Twitter, as I’m getting surgery soon. A lot of people are understandably curious (and nosey!) so I’ll just say it here: I’m getting my boobs out! They’ve been great to me for many years but I’m just over it. I’d like to be able to zip a dress in my size, lay on my belly with pure comfort! No biggie! So don’t worry about me! All good. I’ll still have boobs, they’ll just be pure fat. Which is all a tit is in the first place. A dumb, miraculous bag of fat.”
And there you have it! Best of luck to Chrissy as she undergoes the procedure.
