It’s felt a little like Chrissy Teigen has been saying goodbye to her fake boobs for eons. First, there was the period where she fretted about undergoing the procedure. Then, there was the period where she shared topless photos of herself while saying goodbye. Now, the surgery is finally over and Teigen decided to do a little celebrating.
In fact, she had a pretty funny way of saying goodbye to the boobs that carried her through a modeling career and into becoming a TV personality known for such projects as Lip Sync Battle and Chrissy’s Court. She ordered a cake with some, erm, coconuts and an RIP sign. Take a look.
I mean, undergoing surgery is always a little stressful regardless of what happens during the surgery simply due to having to go under and not being in control of what happens to you. In this case, not only did Chrissy Teigen achieve her end goal of having smaller boobs once more, she also got some cake at the end. I don’t hate that outcome.
Chrissy Teigen has been really open about her breast surgery in the past and why she got it. She’s said previously it had a lot to do with wanting her breasts to look “perky” in swimwear. This would be back when she was oft-modeling for outlets like Sports Illustrated. However, over the past five years she’s had two children and her body has changed. Recently, she explained to Glamour why she wanted the cups out and why she had initially gotten them earlier in her modeling career. She also told that outlet she would consider getting more work done, but as a mom, the last thing she wants is “to die in boob surgery.” Per Teigen:
Yeah, 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 am screwed…. Honestly, I kept them the same cup size. I just filled them out, so they are rounder and firmer. I had a quarter ‘teardrop’ cup in the bottom and filled out the breast line. But I want them out now. If I could do one thing, it would be to have a lift. I think you’re supposed to replace [implants] every ten 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.’
It’s good to hear the surgery went well, there were no follow-up issues and that Teigen is able to have a sense of humor about what went down with her breast implants. Regardless, it may not stop her from still posting a throwback picture or two such as this one referring to “peak Chrissy” ever now and again.
