There has been an increase in patients seeking removal of their breast implants as of late, as New York City-based plastic surgeon Norman Rowe has previously shared with Allure. One of these patients includes Chrissy Teigen, who posted scars from her surgery on Instagram in late July. Now, Ashley Tisdale has shared with her fans that she has also undergone breast-implant removal surgery.
On August 18, the actor shared a post-surgery photo on Instagram of herself soaking up the sun on the beach with a caption explaining her decision to remove her implants last winter. Tisdale says that after dealing with a few health issues she believed were related to the initial surgery, she felt it was time to part with her implants.
"[L]ittle by little I began struggling with minor health issues that just were not adding up — food sensitivities as well as gut issues (full story on @frenshe) that I thought could be caused by my implants. So, last winter I decided to undergo implant removal," she writes, mentioning her new wellness brand's Instagram account.
Tisdale shared that her breast augmentation surgery made her feel more confident in the beginning, but as time passed, she felt removal was the right thing to do. Now, she is happier because of it. "This journey has been one of growth, self discovery, self acceptance and most importantly self-love," she continues.
Her implant removal is only a part of her journey to live a healthier, more "non-toxic life," as she writes in her post. She says she has spoken with many doctors throughout the years (some of which practice holistic medicine), who have inspired her to create the wellness website, Frenshe, to help others figure out how to live their healthiest lives.
