There’s no shame in Chrissy Teigen’s game.
Speaking recently with Refinery 29 in conversation about her beauty regimen, Teigen revealed she underwent liposuction surgery for her armpits nearly a decade ago to boost her self-confidence.
“I had an armpit sucked out, which was one of the best things. It’s a big secret, but I don’t care. It was nine years ago or so,” she told the outlet. “And I had two inches to my armpit. Now it’s back though, so now I’ve gotta pay for [liposuction] again. It was so easy. It made me feel better in dresses; I felt more confident. It was the dumbest, stupidest thing I’ve ever done. The dumbest, but I like it, whatever. I have no regrets, honestly.”
Teigen also joked with Byrdie that everything about her “except my cheeks” is fake ― a comment some publications appeared to take as fact, painting the 31-year-old as a plastic surgery fiend. She later took Twitter to clarify her comments and state that she has only undergone surgery on her armpits.
“Reminder to never ever joke, ever (I did do the armpits, no regrets except it clearly came back),” Teigen tweeted alongside screen grab of a Daily Mail article.
“You think I’d have this ass if I’d done extensive work?” she continued in a follow up tweet. “Like who would ask for this ass.”
