Update 27/5/20: Chrissy Teigen Is Undergoing Surgery To Remove Her Breast Implants

Months after revealing she wanted to have her breast implants removed but was hesitant about undergoing a procedure, Chrissy Teigen has informed followers she is soon to have surgery to remove them.

The presenter, who is always a breath of refreshing air on social media, made the revelation after she tweeted a video of herself undergoing a test for Coronavirus - swab up the nose and all.

After some questioned why she was having a test, the 34-year-old clarified: 'I'm having surgery and I had to.'

Teigen then gave more information on Instagram, alongside a picture from the early days of her modelling career.

'A lot of people are understandably curious (and nosey!) so I’ll just say it here: I’m getting my boobs out! They’ve been great to me for many years but I’m just over it. I’d like to be able to zip a dress in my size, lay on my belly with pure comfort! No biggie! So don’t worry about me! All good. I’ll still have boobs, they’ll just be pure fat. Which is all a tit is in the first place. A dumb, miraculous bag of fat.'

Teigen has taken to sharing many throwback pictures of her modelling days - including on Deal Or No Deal before she was 'gently replaced' - on Instagram of late, alongside the kind of captions we've come to know and love her for.

Original story 5/3/20: Chrissy Teigen Opens Up About Breast Implants And How She Feels About Them Now

Chrissy Teigen has opened up for the first time about getting cosmetic surgery.

The presenter revealed that she underwent breast implant surgery when she was a 20-year-old swimsuit model.

'I did my boobs when I was about 20 years old,' she told Glamour UK. 'It was more for a swimsuit thing. I thought, if I’m going to be posing, laid on my back, I want them to be perky!'

Teigen explained how she kept her breasts the same cup size, but had the surgery more to lift them: 'I just filled them out so they are rounder and firmer. I had a quarter "teardrop" cup in the bottom and filled out the breast line.'

The 34-year-old then acknowledged how her feelings have now changed towards her implants, since having children. Teigen is the proud parent (with husband John Legend) to three-year-old daughter Luna and their younger child, Miles who is almost two.

'But then you have babies and they fill up with milk and deflate and now I am screwed.'

Teigen admitted she wants the implants out now, but now that she's a mother, she feels more hesitant about having surgery.

'I want them out now,' she said. 'If I could do one thing, it would be to have a lift. I think you’re supposed to replace [implants] every ten years. But when you have kids you think about [the risks] of surgery and I think, "This is not the way I want to die, in boob surgery."'

Teigen, who is known for her honesty with social media followers and ability to laugh at herself in her capacity as a 'celebrity', took to Instagram after the interview was released to acknowledge that this was the first time she had spoken about a boob job.

'Happy "now you know I got my boobs done when I was 20" day!!!!! Talk about a weight lifted off my chest!!! LOL LOL LOL LOL...'

There's always room for a pun with Chrissy.
