Model Rachael Finch says removing her breast implants was the ‘right thing to do’


Former Miss Universe finalist Rachael Finch underwent breast explant surgery in February following a painful rupture.

And now the mother-of-two has spoken about her decision to remove her A-cup implants which she got at the age of 17.

‘I feel really content and incredibly happy,’ the 33-year-old told The Sunday Telegraph, before adding, ‘I feel like it was the right thing to do for me and my body.’

‘I had some pretty bad issues leading up to it and that’s the reason why I chose to do what I did with the explant.’

‘I’m in such a good space and I think the most important thing overarching is what I was saying all along which is just totally listen to your own body and do what’s right for you,’ she added. 

Rachael underwent a breast augmentation at the start of her modelling career when she was just 17 years old.

She announced that she was about to undergo explant surgery eight months ago because her left implant had ruptured. 

‘At [17] I made the decision to have them put in and they have been a part of me for pretty much all my adult life,’ Rachael explained in an Instagram post.

Finch said that she decided to remove her implants after she began getting pain in her left breast two years ago and noticed that both breasts looked different.

‘I woke up and noticed one was a little different to the other,’ she said at the time.

‘I immediately went in for an MRI [and] the doctor told me I had a capsular contracture in my left breast – meaning the skin the body creates around the implant to protect itself has tightened.

‘I was told it was fine, common and nothing needed to be done urgently.’

Rachael later sought a second opinion after experiencing pain in her left breast and other symptoms she did not associate with her implants at the time.

She was told by a specialist last week that her left implant had in fact ruptured, meaning there was a hole and its contents were leaking out.

Rachael explained that her original MRI two years ago had detected the rupture, but the results were ‘read wrong to me’.
