While breast augmentation continues to be one of the most requested cosmetic surgical procedures in Australia (FYI: it pretty much never budges from its position in the top five procedures), it seems celebs aren't afraid to say goodbye to them for good - and be vocal about why the ditched them, too.
Breast explant surgeries may often be related to health issues and complications (some of which can include things like ruptures, scarring issues, rippling or malposition), while many are due to a change in cosmetic preference. Hey, it happens!
Listen to Mamamia's podcast for your face, You Beauty, where host Leigh Campbell explains 'baby botox'. Post continues below.
Ashley Tisdale recently revealed on Instagram that she had her breast implants removed and was feeling "happy to finally be fully me" after experiencing "gut issues" and "food sensitivities". Other celebs like Chrissy Tiegan have simply decided it's time for a change and they're "just over it".
We've rounded up a string of celebs who have had their breast implants removed, and shared the reasons why.
In a recent Instagram post, High School Musical star Ashley revealed she had explant surgery after struggling with "minor health issues that were not adding up."
In her lengthy caption she wrote, "Years ago I underwent breast enhancement surgery. Prior to the surgery, I 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."
After consulting many holistic and non-holistic doctors, she said she learned the "importance of living a non-toxic life."

Hey guys, this is probably the most personal post I’ve ever shared. As you know, I’ve been very open about my mental health journey and feel that this is equally important. Years ago I underwent breast enhancement surgery. Prior to the surgery, I 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. But little by little I began struggling with minor health issues that just were not adding up—food sensitivities as well as gut issues (full story on @frenshe) that I thought could be caused by my implants. So, last winter I decided to undergo implant removal. This journey has been one of growth, self discovery, self acceptance and most importantly self-love. This picture above was taken two months after my explant surgery and I think you can tell just how happy I am to finally be fully me. Over the years I’ve met with many holistic and non-holistic doctors and learned the importance of living a non-toxic life. I’m super excited to share with you what I’ve learned thus far, and would love for you to take this journey with me by following @frenshe, where we take an honest approach to our well-being and openly speak to health, beauty and everything in between. I can’t say I’m the proudest of the choices I made in the past but I don’t regret it because it got me here today. ❤️ Love you all! @frenshe is NOW LIVE!!
