Paula Abdul Opens Up About Breast Revision Surgery To Remove Implants That Were 'Too Big'
After years of back pain, Paula Abdul is going under the knife again for a breast revision.
"With my height, I'm petite, I started with smaller breasts and about 20-plus years ago I had implants put in, and the more I was dancing the harder it was getting on my back," the 58-year-old explained in a video for InMode.
"As the years go by, gravity happens too, and I just always felt like [they were] a little too big for my frame, and I wanted to get the old implants out," Abdul continued.
Dr. Jacob Unger explained in the video that he was going to remove the old implants, and then tighten her skin and lift her breasts. He would also potentially add in smaller implants but said, "We want to make sure we can reshape the breasts very well and get the best overall shape and contour to match your frame."
"I'm very excited," Abdul gushed. "This is going to be great."
Abdul has been candid about getting cosmetic procedures in the past. She previously shared that she had the skin on her arms tightened.
"I wanted to do something for myself," she revealed to PEOPLE in 2019. "I've had multiple spinal cord injuries and paralysis, and because my arms had paralysis, the muscles atrophied. I work out a lot, and no matter how many times I hit the gym and did bicep and tricep workouts, it was always difficult because I had to rebuild muscle tissue."
"Women of our age, we start really looking for aesthetic treatments that resonate with you," Abdul told Wendy Williams the same year. "I was thinking, I'm going to have my residency, I want to do something but I wasn't ready to have the big incisions or any facelift.
"I was looking, trying to navigate and I found this company called InMode," Abdul explained. "And they have these procedures called FaceTite and BodyTite, and what I loved about it is it's minimally invasive, no visible scars, downtime, I was out, walking around 2-3 days later."
"Paula Abdul has been publicly promoting radio-frequency treatments for skin tightening and rejuvenation as a patient for quite a while. You can see the skin tightening effect on her face, neck, and body," Dr. Frank Agullo, a plastic and cosmetic surgeon in El Paso, Texas, previously told OK!.
According to Dr. Agullo, "It is evident that Paula has had volume restoration with fillers around the cheeks, lips, and mouth," which has "maintained her youthful and refreshed complexion on point."
