Ashley Tisdale just opened up about getting her breast implants removed in "probably the most personal post [she's] ever shared." In an Instagram shared on Monday announcing the launch of Frenshe, her new beauty and wellness website, Tisdale revealed that she underwent breast enhancement surgery years ago, but removed her implants last winter after suspecting they had caused minor health issues.
"I constantly felt my body was less than, and thought this change would make me feel more whole and more secure about myself."
"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," she said of going through with breast enhancement surgery. "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." The singer, who's always been candid about her anxiety and mental health struggles, explained that meeting with holistic and nonholistic doctors over the years inspired the creation of Frenshe.
Tisdale also continued on to share that the journey of removing her implants "has been one of growth, self discovery, self acceptance and most importantly self-love." She explained her accompanying Instagram photo, where she's shown relaxing on the beach, was taken two months after her explant surgery. "I think you can tell just how happy I am to finally be fully me." Check out Tisdale's honest post in full below, and hop over to Frenshe to learn more about her new wellness venture.
