Like many young women, Denise Richards sought the path of plastic surgery to enhance her breasts when she was younger and now the star is opening up about her past boob job blunders and why it’s okay to be selective in a choice that is more important than you might think.
Denise Richards has three beautiful daughters and one rocking body, but she wasn’t always comfortable in her own skin. In the new issue of Us Weekly, Denise Richards is revealing the details of what went wrong when she decided to get breast implants when she was 19-years-old.
“When I was 19, a doctor put in bigger implants than what I asked for. I was in such a hurry to get them that I didn’t research my doctor,” Richards said. “I just thought because they’re a plastic surgeon, they must be good. You have to be your advocate for your own body and ask 100 questions,” she says.
See, ladies, sometimes you have to speak up and ask questions.
Unfortunately, when the former E! reality star met with another surgeon to correct the first surgery her implants ended up being even larger the second time around. “I felt very vulnerable,” she told the mag of her botched boobs. “I was getting ready to film [1998's] Wild Things, and I didn’t want to get into a lawsuit with some plastic surgeon. It wasn’t right what the doctor did, but it is what it is.”
So, how does the mom of three, which includes newly adopted baby Eloise Joni (6-weeks-old) feel about her “girls” these days?
“This is the size I wanted them to look at 19! There’s a long investment with breast implants. They’re not going to last a lifetime and things can go wrong,” she explained. “I’m happy with them now, but in a year that could change.”
Well, we think she looks absolutely marvelous. It’s nice to know women aren’t alone in the plastic surgery woes of life and even a star can run into a few hiccups with the knife.
