You can totally rely on Chrissy Teigen to deliver a dollop of honesty.

In her latest refreshingly open reveal the cookbook author and television presenter told her Instagram followers that she’s decided to have surgery to remove her breast implants.

Sharing a black and white image of herself topless, with her nipples strategically covered with heart emojis, the mum-of-two opened up about the choice to have the implants removed.

And in typical Chrissy Teigen style she managed to strike a balance between being honest about her own situation, without shaming anyone who was still keen on the idea of breast implant surgery.

“So I posted myself getting a covid test on the twitter, as I’m getting surgery soon,” she began her post. “A lot of people are understandably curious (and nosey!) so I’ll just say it here: I’m getting my boobs out!”

Teigen, who is married to singer John Legend, went on to explain that while her implants had served her well, she’s “just over it.”

Going on to list some of the problems she’s personally faced at the hands of her implants including not being able to zip up a dress in her size or comfortably lay on her stomach, she then added a note to fans telling them not to worry about her.

“No biggie! So don’t worry about me! All good.”

It isn’t the first time the star has hinted she was considering surgery to have her implants removed.

In an interview with Glamour, Teigen admitted she wants the implants out but feels more “hesitant” now she’s a mother.

The 34-year-old model explained that she had her boobs done at age 20, “It was more for a swimsuit thing,” she said. “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,” she added. “I want them out.”

And now, it seems, she is going ahead with her desire to be implant-free, but she reassured fans she will “still have boobs” after the procedure, “they’ll just be pure fat,” she concluded her post. “Which is all a tit is in the first place. A dumb, miraculous bag of fat.”
