Amber Rose may be proud of her curves — but reducing her breast size is something she’s been thinking about for a long time.
The model revealed on Instagram Tuesday that she would be going for breast reduction surgery on Wednesday under the care of Dr. David Matlock and Dr. Garth Fisher.
“I’m really scared and really excited at the same time,” she wrote on her Instagram story.
On Wednesday, just ahead of the procedure, she shared an interview between her and Dr. Fisher in which he discussed how she was ready for the change. Fisher was featured on the ABC series “Extreme Makeover.”
Rose said she was looking forward to wearing spaghetti straps again.
In July of 2017, Rose shared that she had been “thinking about getting a breast reduction this year,” but ultimately pushed it off until early 2018.
She explained that the weight from her breasts was causing back pain, a common reason woman choose to undergo the surgery.
“I’m really scared of the lollipop scars tho… any advice?” she questioned at the time. “Are there any ladies out there that are much happier even though you have a breast reduction scars?”
Rose, 34, whose real name is Amber Levonchuck, has faced criticism for her curves in the past.
As a contestant on “Dancing with the Stars” in 2016, she claimed judge Julianne Hough “body-shamed” her by saying she was uncomfortable by her performance.
“You know, all the beautiful professional dancers that are on ‘Dancing with the Stars,’ I mean they dress very sexy and they do the splits and they grind up on these guys and they look absolutely stunning and get a standing ovation,” she added. “And me, and my body, my hips, my a–, my breasts made her uncomfortable.”
Hough later denied that is what she meant by her commentary.
“I have been a strong proponent of female empowerment and an anti-bullying advocate for years and I take that very seriously. Any kind of body shaming is the furthest thing from who I am and what I stand for,” she said in a statement to People.
Rose is a strong supporter of female empowerment and runs an annual event titled the “SlutWalk,” which is aimed at combatting sexual violence, victim blaming, derogatory labels and gender inequality.
“The Amber Rose SlutWalk aims to impact and uplift, while shifting the paradigm of rape culture,” the organization explains on its website. “The event provides a safe, all-inclusive space to entertain, educate, and empower.”
