  • One of the things fans of Ellen Adarna love about her is that she keeps things real and unfiltered. This admirable characteristic of the actress was once again put on full display in her recent Instagram update where she revealed having her breast implants removed.

    It was back in 2014 when Ellen first said that "my boobs are fake." Since then, she has always been open about getting the enhancement. But fast forward to the present day, the celebrity mom also went on to share to the public that the time has come to bid goodbye to her 'fake boobs' as she starts to observe symptoms of breast implant illness.

    Other Celebrity Moms Who Had Breast Implants Removed

    Michelle Madrigal

    Ellen was not the first celebrity who opened up about Breast Implant Illness (BII). In 2019, Michelle Madrigal also came forward to tell that her implants "doesn't serve me anymore."

    Michelle then admitted that it was her insecurity that grew from constantly getting compared with her sister that led her to feel discontent about her figure."At that time, I just did it for vanity, and I really thought it could fix my insecurities growing up."

    Her perspective began to shift when she started feeling symptoms of BII, including joint pain, brain fog, muscle weakness, and discomfort when doing physical activities. Michelle also said that being a mom made her realize that her physical health is more important than her physical looks.
