Clare Crawley is embracing her new body.

The Bachelorette star took to Instagram on Saturday (July 31) to reveal she had just had her breast implants removed, alongside a snap of her in a hospital gown, hugging a bouquet of flowers.

“It wasn’t an easy decision,” said the reality star, 40, thanking her team “who truly want to help women like me heal from BII (Breast Implant Illness).”

Crawley said the “overwhelming support and love” from loved ones “has just meant the world to me” and though she’s sometimes “slipped into moments of doubt,” the reality personality thanked “you all (who) give me a boost.”

Wanting to reinforce the message for her 1 million followers, Crawley said, “Our body shape does not define us or make us any less lovable or worthy. We are perfectly made just the way we are!”

In her Instagram Story, Crawley took a video of herself bandaged up and looking in the mirror, captioned: “I still feel amazing. No pain meds. And the best thing so far... no itchy rashes anymore!! I had them for 5 years off and on... my skin feels incredible!”

Ahead of the post, Crawley also shared photos on her Story saying, “I want (to) cry how amazing I feel,” calling the decision “has been life changing,” People reports.

Crawley spoke about her forthcoming operation in an Instagram video earlier this month, to hopefully “help others... feel not so alone.”

“I’ve been going through things medically with my body that I have not had answers to,” said Crawley, explaining her Instagram absence. “It’s been hard, it’s been frustrating and it’s been scary for me to not have answers to know something’s not right.”

After dealing with rashes all over her body, largely around her eyes, and taking a slew of antibiotics, Crawley said she went for a recommended mammogram, where fluid sacs were found behind her implants. She also learned she’d long had a higher white blood cell count for and, prioritising her health over her love of the implants, she decided to get them removed.

“To me, this is like the ultimate love story is loving my body enough to know that this is not what makes me beautiful,” Crawley said at the time. “My health and happiness is what matters.”

Breast Implant Illness, according to the FDA, is a term used to describe systemic symptoms reported by some after reconstruction or augmentation, including fatigue, so-called brain fog, hair loss, joint and muscle pain, as well as anxiety and depression. – New York Daily News/Tribune News Service
