Ashley Tisdale Celebrates Her 'Natural Boobs' After Getting Her Breast Implants Removed
The High School Musical star underwent implant removal surgery last year after she “began struggling with minor health issues” that she believes were from her implants.
After a year of changes, from breast implant removal surgery to pregnancy, Ashley Tisdale is enjoying her "natural boobs."
The High School Musical star, 35, shared a photo on Instagram of her changing shape in a cleavage-baring tank top.
"Got my implants taken out a year ago, got pregnant and now have natural boobs 😂 life is funny," Tisdale wrote on her Instagram Story.
The new mom to 2-month-old daughter Jupiter shared in August that she had decided to get her "years"-old breast implants removed because she was "struggling with minor health issues" that she thinks were due to her implants.
"Little by little I began struggling with minor health issues that just were not adding up — food sensitivities as well as gut issues … that I thought could be caused by my implants. So, last winter I decided to undergo implant removal," she said.
The Food and Drug Administration is currently investigating several breast implant makers after the implants have been linked to a type of cancer, anaplastic large cell lymphoma, or BIA-ALCL. The FDA has instructed manufactures to add a warning to implant packaging with the potential dangers, and many women — including celebrities like Tisdale and Janet Jackson — have opted to get them removed.
Tisdale said that she initially got breast implants because she "constantly felt my body was less than, and thought this change would make me feel more whole and more secure about myself. And for a short period of time…it did," she said.
But Tisdale said she now feels happy in her body.
"This journey has been one of growth, self discovery, self acceptance and most importantly self-love," she wrote.
Soon after sharing that she had her implants removed, Tisdale announced that she was pregnant with her first child, who arrived in March. In the days after Jupiter's arrival, Tisdale said that she's "slowly healing" and "slowing finding myself."
"I'm not trying to get back to who I was, there's no way," she wrote. "I'm on the road to discovering who I'm truly meant to be and there's something in my daughters eyes that tells me she knows exactly who that's gonna be ❤️."
