We love when our favorite celebrities open up about different things in their lives — parenthood, mental health, and even plastic surgery. Some stars, like Kylie Minogue and Cate Blanchett, are wildly against even minor procedures like Botox, while others love to get occasional work done and will tell you every detail, like the Kardashians, Chrissy Teigen, or Sharon Osbourne. And we love the honesty of both! While a few decades back it was taboo for celebs to admit to getting procedures like nose jobs or breast implants, stars today tend to be more open about whether or not they’re willing to go under the knife — and a growing number of stars have been sharing the choice not just to get breast implants, but to get them removed.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, breast implants removals were up 8% from 2019 to 2020, so maybe it’s no surprise that we’re increasingly hearing about cases that didn’t work out with celebrity women. Each star has their own story of why the procedure didn’t work out, and the details wildly vary.
Some celebs like Adrienne Bailon and Heather Morris just didn’t like the look of having larger breasts on themselves. And some — like Yolanda Hadid and Crystal Hefner — ended up in the hospital because of the side effects or recalls. Every celebrity has their story and we love hearing the details.
Read on to learn more about some of our favorite celebrity women who got their breast implants removed and why they had it done.
