Chrissy Teigen Raved About Getting Botox in This Very Unlikely Area
Supermodel and cookbook author Chrissy Teigen is known for keeping it real. Sharing her family adventures, political views, and recipe secrets on social media, Teigen has accumulated a monumental fan following thanks to her authenticity and priceless sense of humor.
The Lip Sync Battle co-host has been very open about getting cosmetic procedures done in the past. Teigen revealed that she has gotten Botox in a an uncommon area that she says is the ‘best move’ she’s ever made.
New phase of life
Married to singer John Legend and mom of two kids, daughter Luna and son Miles, Teigen realizes that she is in a different season of life. Last year, she spoke of how her body has physically changed over the years after having children.
“I think, in a way, we’ve forgotten what a regular body looks like. There are people out there who are struggling, and I’m struggling, and it’s okay to come to terms with realizing it’s going to be a bit of a journey,” Teigen said, according to Good Housekeeping. “I’m not blind: I see my body, I see the difference in shape, I see that I gained weight. But I also see with those same eyes that I have a beautiful baby boy, and an amazing little girl, and I am very happy.”
Teigen has chosen to embrace the changes that have come on her evolving life journey. “This is a new thing that I can change within my mind, that I don’t have to be swimsuit model anymore,” she shared. “I get to be a mommy, cook, and meet incredible people, and I’m happy to be going through this transition.”
Getting creative with Botox
The cookbook author has also been very transparent about undergoing cosmetic procedures. “Everything about me is fake except my cheeks,” she said in 2017, according to Shape. She reportedly pointed to her forehead, nose, and lips saying: “Fake, fake, fake.”
In August, Teigen revealed on her Instagram Stories that she received another type of treatment in an area that usually gets neglected. Posting a video of herself reclining in a chair as a man in scrubs administers a syringe to her armpit, Teigen captioned the post “BOTOXED MY ARMPITS. TRULY BEST MOVE I HAVE EVER MADE,” and tagged Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Jason Diamond, according to USA Today. She noted the benefit of the procedure when it comes to pesky perspiration. “I can wear silk again without soaking woohoo!”
That’s not all she had done to her under arm region. “I had an armpit sucked out, which was one of the best things. It’s a big secret, but I don’t care. It was nine years ago or so,” she told Refinery29 in 2017. “And I had two inches to my armpit. Now it’s back though, so now I’ve gotta pay for [liposuction] again. It was so easy. It made me feel better in dresses; I felt more confident. It was the dumbest, stupidest thing I’ve ever done. The dumbest, but I like it, whatever. I have no regrets, honestly.”
New motto: Go with the flow
The social media maven now relishes a more laid-back approach to life. “My new motto these days is to go with the flow: It actually teaches you to be a better person and not be so neurotic about time and schedules,” Teigen shared. “Whatever is going to work to make a great day, go with it. I’m very much a person who likes to be present.”
She credits her daughter with helping her attain this new mindset. “Luna’s bringing out so much of my personality that I was too anxious to share in the outside world before,” Teigen said. “Now, I get to be goofy and silly… She finds joy in these little things and they’re the kind of thing that she will talk about all week at school, and I have a feeling that it’ll be the kind of thing that she’s going to remember when she’s older.”
No wonder why Teigen has over 27 million followers!
