Bachelor, Bachelor in Paradise and most recently Bachelorette star Ali Oetjen has gone under the knife today to have her breast implants removed. She took to Instagram on Wednesday to announce the upcoming procedure, and today shared a video on her Insta story, live from her plastic surgeon’s rooms.
Don’t worry, it was nothing gory, just Ali looking pretty fkn nervous about the surgery, which is entirely understandable. All surgery scares me and I once passed out just because they got a needle out of its packaging in my vicinity. True story.
On Wednesday Ali spoke about the upcoming procedure, giving her followers the heads up that she’d be sharing it on social media.
I’m hoping she means not the actual procedure, but the pre-surgery nerves and post-surgery recovery process.
I’m having my breast reduction in two days on Friday and will document my experience. To everyone that said they’re too big, you hurt my feelings. To myself, I will never change my body for someone else. The lesson learnt when I was strongest. I don’t want to have huge boobs!
The 32-year-old has previously said that she had breast augmentation surgery in her early twenties, admitting last year that she did it to impress a bloke. The Daily Mail quotes her as saying in 2018:
I don’t feel comfortable with them… It is a personal thing but knowing I got them for the wrong reasons, I don’t want any girl to go through that same thing. So that is why I wanted to share it to make sure other girls don’t make that mistake.
While anyone is free to have plastic surgery if they feel like it and it’s what they want to do, I still applaud Ali for admitting she didn’t entirely do it for herself, and for making these steps to take the power back.
