Chrissy Teigen began her illustrious career modeling swimsuits, and naturally, she felt compelled to get breast implants to make her more appealing on the camera, much as other models do, at least because she'd be lying on her back.

However, those times are in the past and with her and her husband, John Legend, building a family, her perspective on having the breast implants has dramatically changed, so much so, in fact, she now wants to have them removed. The author recently sat down with Glamour U.K. and got candid about a number of things, including her breast implants and what she intends to do with them.

Teigen Shares The Reason She Got Breast Implants, Changes From Being a Mother

In speaking with Glamour U.K., Teigen shared that having them was perfect for the swimsuit modeling gig, but when she became a mother and began to breastfeed, natural changes to her body affected them as she produced milk.

"Yeah, I did my boobs when I was about 20 years old," she told the outlet. "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! But then you have babies and they fill up with milk and deflate and now I am screwed."

The 'Cravings' author was asked if she got the breast implants to increase her 'self-esteem', but Teigen denied that claim, revealing that she simply got them to make their figure more round and firm. "Honestly, I kept them the same cup size. I just filled them out, so they are rounder and firmer," she responded.

But now, wanting to have them removed, she's facing a dilemma. Teigen is fully aware of the complications associated with having them removed, as well as, going under the knife, in general. Her fear of potential complications has prevented her from having them removed up until this point, she claims.

"I had a quarter 'teardrop' cup in the bottom and filled out the breast line. But I want them out now. If I could do one thing, it would be to have a lift," the Sports Illustrated model explained. "I think you’re supposed to replace [implants] every 10 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."

But regardless of whether she actually makes the decision to have the breast implants removed, she wants to let everyone know about her procedures to prevent people from developing mental health issues from our heavily 'filtered' and 'fake' social media platform personas.

"You can’t set these expectations for people that everything is perfect," she said. "Everyone filters their s—, edits or Facetunes so you forget what normal faces or bodies look like. It’s not fair and it makes you jealous of other people’s bodies. It’s lying to people by omission. But also, while you want to teach your kids to be comfortable in their own skin, you want to tell them everything you can and let them decide."

Teigen's developed a healthy way to look at her body after years of being so critical. "I do look at [my body] in the shower and think, 'Arghhh, these kids," she said. "But I don't take the aesthetics so seriously now. It’s very fulfilling not having that pressure of putting on a swimsuit and looking good for a magazine."
