On Monday, she underwent breast implant and capsule removal surgery on Monday with plastic surgeon, Dr. Milind Ambe of Newport Surgery Center. 

‘Implants & capsules removed. Feeling tired & a little sore as expected,’ she captioned an Instagram post. ‘I’m pretty sure not working out will be the hardest part for me. 

The star has been giving updates day by day to her fans; on Tuesday, one day after the surgery, Tamra said: ‘I know it sounds crazy but I woke up today with rosy cheeks, No sinus congestion and happy thoughts. I’m hoping I will continue to see health improvements as the weeks go on.’

Her doctor noted that ‘every thing looks great’ during a check up despite some swelling and gauze adding padding to the results.

‘I’m excited to be sharing my BII journey with you in September… stay tuned for more info,’ she wrote. ‘Thank you @carolinecmathias @kaylaraereid and everyone that reached out to me sharing their BII stories with me.’    

Tamra claimed she’s suffering from breast implant illness (BII), which can include a wide range of symptoms, including joint pain, chronic fatigue, anxiety and depression, according to Breastcancer.org.

She shared a few Instagram stories post check-up and wrote: ‘Can’t wait to share with you my journey with BII.’

Judge revealed her decision via Instagram Story last week where she expressed that she is ‘tired of being tired and inflamed’ before sharing a topless shot from the doctor’s office.

‘Explant surgery pre-op bye bye boobies,’ captioned Judge, who covered up her nipples with a set of orange emojis in the snap as she clarified that this would be her second implant removal, with the last being ‘9 years ago.’

‘5 years ago I put very small 125CC implants in,’ she wrote, noting that she ‘can’t wait’ to be rid of those ‘very small implants.’

Judge has suffered from ‘thyroid issues, swollen joints, fatigue, and bladder, sinus and gut inflammation’ as a result of her implants, as recorded by People.

One follower, who had undergone the procedure themselves, encouraged Judge to indulge in a breast list, something she seemingly confirmed she would be doing post-surgery.

‘Getting a lift,’ she stated, followed by a finger-and-thumb gesture emoji.

The reality star admitted in a later slide that although she ‘probably wouldn’t rush’ to have her implants removed if she weren’t experiencing health issues, she is ‘so over having large breasts that seem to get bigger with age.’

She also had her followers share their own ‘explant’ stories, with one encouraging Tamra to ‘do lymphatic drainage’ while healing. 

Judge, who has had her breasts altered ‘five times’ over the span of her life, explained to People in 2015 how her perspective on implants have changed over the years.

Following the birth of her now 35-year-old son Ryan, Judge decided to go under the knife for her very first breast augmentation.

She had them redone several times, including after the arrival of her 21-year-old son Spencer, before deciding to get them removed all together in 2012 and replaced with smaller implants.

Tamra told the outlet that when her breasts ‘were big in the ’90s, I loved them,’ but her desire for ample cleavage dwindled due to ‘lifestyle’ changes. 

‘It’s a lifestyle thing I guess, as you get older you don’t want those big giant boobs.

‘It is what it is. It’s a personal choice and for me. I don’t do it for the public or my husband. It’s something you do to make yourself feel better,’ she explained.

Tamra famously left the Real Housewives of Orange County in January of 2020 after 12 seasons on the popular Bravo reality series.

She had joined the cast back in 2007 when the show was in its third season.
