Social media star Sia Cooper is well-known for her Instagram profile boasting 1.2 million followers (you have 110% seen her feed-good comments on the photos of every celebrity you follow) and her mega-successful blog, Diary of a Fit Mommy.
In recent months, the 29-year-old fitness blogger has been open about her desire to have her breast implants removed, holding them responsible for her extreme fatigue, exhaustion, hair loss and weight gain.
Sia had her implants removed last week and this week shared a confronting photo of herself post-op, holding up her silicon implants.

WHY I CHOSE TO REMOVE MY IMPLANTS + ONE WEEK POST-EXPLANT UPDATE on the blog✨Click the link in my bio for the full update + pictures. I can’t believe it’s been one week, y’all. This past week, I’ve been sore, but have felt incredible. More-so than the last few years. I went from being practically bedridden to having more energy to live. Chest pain is GONE. Shortness of breath is GONE. Bad body odor is GONE. Inflammation is rapidly decreasing. I feel mentally more clear, but still waiting for more on this. Acne is clearing up. I have color back in my face again. My weight is finally budging for the first time in MONTHS. I’m still tired, but I am guessing it’s my body healing from the surgery. My husband said I haven’t been this talkative in months and I credit that to me not being so anxious and depressed anymore. The toxicity of the implants themselves (ingredients listed in my blog post) + my body trying to fight the foreign objects took a toll on me this year which lead me to remove them. I ate healthy, exercises regularly, but nothing would help me. I saw so many doctors and took so many tests for no answers. I felt like such a hypocrite and fraud because I preached natural, healthy, and organic everyday and yet here I was sick from silicone and a bad choice I made 7 years ago. It got to the point where I couldn’t workout anymore. I was that sick. I felt like an 80 year old when I was only 29. I feel freer than I have in so long. I thought I would cry seeing my new breasts, but I haven’t. It feels amazing to be smaller again and they fit my body. I never thought I would say this, but I love my new (old) self. Crazy that it took me all of this running around to get back to this point. You truly don’t appreciate your health until it’s been compromised. While I’m still healing, I’ll be taking it easy. I still can’t lift anything (including my kids ????) until one month post op. My incisions are in my fold so you cannot see them (great work @jchunmd1). It looks like I never had implants to begin with! Thank you to all who supported me in this emotional journey. I will post another update at one month post op which will be in a few weeks. ????

In another post, Sia said she has already noticed a different since her implants – which weighed almost a kilogram – were removed including improvements in breathing and less inflammation.
