Chrissy Teigen is having her breast implants removed: ‘I’m just over it’

2020 Vanity Fair Oscar Party

I had a C-cup bra size when I was about 14 years old. By the time I got to college, I was a DD-cup. Now I’m (gulp) a DDD-cup. So having dealt with a large bust for my entire adult life, I’m here to tell you… it’s not all bad or all good. Clothes don’t fit the right way, because most clothes are made for B-cup women. My back and shoulders hurt sometimes because of my bras. But all in all, I do like my boobs. I just don’t get why women would pay to have much-bigger boobs in general though. Like, if an A-cup lady goes to a C-cup, that I understand. But those implants combined with pregnancy and breastfeeding… I’m sure it’s just a mess. Well, Chrissy Teigen is getting her implants taken out. For reasons:

Chrissy Teigen is removing her breast implants.

“I’m getting my boobs out!” Teigen, 34, wrote on Instagram Tuesday, alongside a topless modeling shot with heart emojis covering her breasts. “They’ve been great to me for many years but I’m just over it,” the mother of two explained in the caption of her decision. “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,” Teigen added in her Instagram caption. “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. ❤️”

The cookbook author revealed earlier on Tuesday on Twitter that she would be undergoing surgery soon. Fans became curious after she shared a video of herself getting tested for the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). “Everyone in LA can get tested for free. I’m having surgery and had to. I’m sorry if this offends you,” Teigen responded to a critic on Twitter, without going into further detail about what surgery she is having.

First of all, is this the moment to have elective surgery to remove implants? Probably not. While hospitals are not as slammed as they were in March and April, hospitals and medical facilities are still trying to get a handle on the coronavirus, and people are still being discouraged from elective procedures like this. As for removing her implants… 1) I think she would be very surprised by how much she dislikes her post-implant breasts and 2) I bet she is getting some fat-injection implant replacement surgery, probably alongside some kind of breast-tuck and tummy tuck/lipo. Just my theory!

    She should remove the botox too.

    • NextToMe says:

      And the gallons of facial filler.

    • Cassie says:

      What? If she has Botox, it’s well-placed (based on these photos) and wears off in a few months entirely. I believe she’s had lip fillers, which I don’t feel suit her as she’s really beautiful.


    Real question — why would she be surprised by how much she dislikes them after having them removed? I have no clue what they would look like after, I don’t know much about this. Would they look different from when she started, aside from being saggier because she’s older?

    I’ve toyed with the idea of getting implants but I’m on so many medications I’m terrified of being put under anesthesia. I know people do it all the time but it’s not something I’m comfortable risking. My husband is very anti-implants, but I think he doesn’t realize there are tons of people out there with real-looking breast implants, I think he just imagines the cartoonish/botched ones. I’ve got to say I wish I were bigger than a B cup, but my god are they perky.

    • mel says:

      Embrace the perk!!! It won’t last and will disappear even faster with implants (ya implants sag).
      I actually got a breast reduction when I was about 41. Best decision of my life. I’m super sporty and DDD were giving me pains and rashes etc. There is already a bit of sag and stretch marks 5 years later even though they are Cs now. It happens. Genetics and time!

      • OriginalLala says:

        I had a reduction last year and it was the best decision I ever made – neck/shoulder pain is gone and my boobs are super perky!

    • Jana says:

      My guess is she’ll get a lift, especially if she breast fed her two kids…but she will definitely look thinner, my sister looked like she had gained 15 lbs when she got implants.

  3. Hope says:

    It depends on each medical facility – some are scheduling more elective procedures again and it’s possible she was supposed to have it done a few months ago and it got moved out until her hospital felt it was safe. I have no clue in this area, could this be done in a strictly cosmetic procedure type facility and not a hospital that has an ER and is treating COVID patients? I did see that she had to get tested for COVID as part of her pre-op requirements.

    I know Addrianne Curry (from season 1 of ANTM) got her implants removed. One had burst and she had been having health issues for years. She had a ton of scar tissue but her doctor could only do so much and said she will either be totally flat chested on one side or need further surgery to basically build another breast. Her recovery was brutal but said she was so glad once they were gone – she admitted both her surgeries were botched jobs and regrets ever having gotten implants and said she’ll be happier with no chest in the long run if it means no more surgeries.

    does she ever shut up? i am so over her. blocked her on twitter, but there is literally no escape from this thirsty broad. it’s either cooking, or promoting something, feuding with someone, or boobs.

    • edith says:

      someone asked her on twitter and she answered. you can relax,also: if you dont want to hear from her, stop reading articles about her …just a tip!

  5. Zapp Brannigan says:

    Has she apologized to Courtney Stodden yet? Maybe she can do that on the way to the surgeons office.

  6. Jules says:

    Unbelievable the things she does and says to stay in the limelight. She truly cannot stop. Next she’s going to be taking selfies sitting on the toilet. And then the usual backlash to the critics that comments are sexist and racist. So so tired of this crap. Pun intended.

  7. Sarah says:

    I had a breast reduction at 20 (I’m 40 now) and have never regretted it. That’s all I’ve got for this mess.

    • mel says:

      haha ditto (although had mine at 41).

    • Jaded says:

      Me too – smartest thing I ever did. Having clothes fit properly and not spilling out of bathing suits was amazing.

    • Heather says:

      I’ve been considering a reduction for quite a long time (no implants, just big boobs). As I get older, I’m finding that the strain on my back and neck is getting worse.
      I’m curious what it would be like to wear a buttoned shirt.

  8. GreenQueen says:

    Not necessarily a bad time to get elective surgery right now. I say this while working at a hospital at this very moment – WE NEED THE MONEY. We are having to furlough nurses right now and that is not good. So please don’t judge her on that alone, everything else, sure. But I’m not kidding, we really need the money.

    • StartupSpouse says:

      Came here to say the same thing @GreenQueen. The hospital is probably thrilled to get the revenue.

      • vanessa says:

        I’ll third this. I work in healthcare marketing and the hospitals, health systems, and physician practices I interact with are doing all they can to catch up on the revenue they’ve lost.

  9. Anna says:

    I doubt she will simply just have the implants removed. My guess is she’s probably going to have fat transfer breast augmentation, where they do lipo on other parts of the body and inject the fat into the breasts. Fat transfer breast augmentation results in less dramatic size increase and more natural looking breasts.
    She’s so thirsty, this one. I cant stand her anymore!

  10. Elizabeth says:

    My god that “dress.”

  11. Rae says:

    I like her, I think her Twitter is entertaining and I wish the best for her surgery. I like her openness.

    I want to get a boob reduction, I really dislike mine and they’ve always been too big for my 5ft 1 frame. One day I might actually take the plunge when I can have enough time off work afterwards.

    • Jaded says:

      I had it done and was only off work for a week. Pain was minimal and the results were wonderful. Good luck!

    • OriginalLala says:

      do it! I had 1.5kg of boob removed and it gave me a new life. I had to take 5 weeks off work, and the pain wasn’t fun, but it was all worth it

  12. kh says:

    Breast implants interfere with mammograms. If she has a family history of breast cancer, or if she has other reasons to be concerned, it’s possible that she was advised by her physician to have them removed.

  13. Veronica S. says:

    As long as she isn’t in a massive hot spot area and precautions are taken, I’m fine with surgeries slowly worming their way back into the hospital, especially for otherwise stable patients. The unfortunate reality is that those hospitals need the money because America has this grand delusion that medicine can run on capitalist venture. Even for less healthy patients, procedures are going to need to start up soon – there are plenty of chronically ill people who need care.

    My guess is that they’ll remove the implants and then lift to offset any of the sagging from aging/weight. A good surgeon can do that with minimal scarring. I know she’s a lot for some people, but I’m pretty lenient about her discussing this. I’d rather people realize how common these procedures are in Hollywood than not.

  14. Lulu says:

    She spoke about this months ago. She was already planning this but had to postpone because of the virus, so she’s probably doing it now because this is when the hospital has said they will do it. She’s hardly forcing them to take her boobs out.

  15. Thea says:

    She explained it that you have you have to change them every 10 years or so and this is the 10th year, so she’s removing it.

  16. Amber says:

    I would be willing to bet good money that she will go to Orange County to have it done, not Los Angeles. Certain hospitals there–including the one my mom works for–have started doing elective procedures again, as early as two weeks ago.

  17. Busyann says:

    Im confused. This could be my lack of knowledge….but…..if she has implants why are they so saggy? Implants are supposed to be perkier right?

    Anyway, I think its fine that these elective procedures are starting up again. Hospitals are losing money and laying off people without elective procedures which, is a sad thought. Its also kind of crazy whats considered elective. My mom had a knee replacement earlier this year and that was elective. I had no clue

    • Heather says:

      They were probably perky when she first got them, but after two kids and gravity, implants do not stand the test of time. They have to be changed every 10 to 12 years. (I’ve been watching a lot of ‘Botched’ lately)

  18. helloitsme says:

    I am a surgeon in the US. Elective cases are being scheduled at varying rates around the country. A lot of surgeons are getting pressured (by their employers and their patients) to get cases done, to clear the backlog. We also need to recoup some of the financial losses we have faced with Covid. The rate at which we are scheduling is a reflection of the disease burden of Covid in the community and the amount of resources available. Just because she is getting an elective surgery done, does not mean it is wrong.

  19. Sammiches says:

    My sister is dealing with implant illness and is anxious to get hers out. The surgery has been delayed indefinitely and she is suffering. I find the tone of this article kind of gross. We don’t know if there are medical reasons for Tiegen to be doing this.
