Chrissy Teigen: Model has the breast implants removed

Chrissy Teigen (34) will have surgery to remove her breast implants. "I'll get my breasts out!" Wrote the 34-year-old on Instagram for a topless picture on which heart emojis cover the bare essentials. The implants were great for her for many years, she explains, but now she's had enough of it. She wants to close the zipper on a dress of her size and be able to lie comfortably on her stomach, says Teigen.

She also added, "Don't worry about me! All well!" She will still have breasts after the procedure, "they will only be pure fat" – as is normal, the model says. Previously, she had revealed on Twitter that she would be operated on soon. She had shared a videothat she shows in a corona test. She gave the upcoming operation as the reason for the test.

"I don't want to die in breast surgery"

Teigen and his husband John Legend (41, "All Of Me") have two children, Luna Simone (4) and Miles Theodore (2). In a "Glamor UK" interview, she said in March that she wanted to get rid of her implants because they had to be replaced every ten years. Since she had children, however, she has been thinking about the risks, "and I say to myself: 'This is not the way I want to die – with breast surgery.'"
