Why are so many women getting their breast implants removed?
Lately, the stories in the news have been nothing short of serious and overwhelming for all of us. However, there was a recent shift in subject with the popular, eye-catching headline including the phrase “I’m Getting My Boobs Out!”-in the words of none other than Chrissy Teigen herself.
Following the announcement of her plans in March, Chrissy Teigen confirmed in an Instagram post this week that she will be having surgery to remove her breast implants. Her reasoning? She claims “They’ve been great to me for many years but I’m just over it”.
The decision to remove breast implants has become increasingly popular among women in recent years due to many different factors. These factors can range anywhere from a general change in aesthetic taste to complications or illness.
