Los Angeles, Sep 27 (IANS) Brazilian model Gisele Bundchen has revealed that she regrets going under the knife for a breast augmentation in 2015.
According to people.com, after breastfeeding both her son Benjamin and daughter Vivian for more than 18 months each, the 38-year-old felt her breasts were smaller and slightly uneven, which made her undergo breast surgery.
She said: “I was always praised for my body, and I felt like people had expectations from me that I couldn’t deliver.
“I felt very vulnerable because I can work out, I can eat healthy, but I can’t change the fact that both of my kids enjoyed the left breast more than the right. All I wanted was for them to be even and for people to stop commenting on it.”
She decided to undergo a breast enlargement procedure. But she wishes she had never had the surgery.
In her memoir, “Lessons: My Path to a Meaningful Life”, Bundchen wrote: “When I woke up, I was like, ‘What have I done?’ I felt like I was living in a body I didn’t recognise. For the first year I wore (baggy) clothes because I felt uncomfortable.”
The model also praised her husband Tom Brady as she considers him as her source of support.
“He just said, ‘I love you no matter what’ and that I looked beautiful,” she said.
