Yolanda Hadid has turned her back on cosmetic procedures and urged other women to do their research “before putting anything foreign in your body.”
The 55-year-old Making a Model host, who has had a number of health problems in recent years, donned a sheer blush pink lace bodysuit for a sexy selfie posted to Instagram on Monday (14Jan19) as she celebrated her return to good health.
In the caption, Yolanda, who is the mother of models Bella and Gigi Hadid, shared that she is now free of breast implants, and other cosmetic enhancements, she claimed “almost killed” her.
“Fifty Five and smiling from the inside out,” Hadid wrote alongside the stunning photo. “Finally back to the original 1964. Living in a body free of breast implants, fillers, botox, extensions and all the bulls**t I thought I needed in order to keep up with what society conditioned me to believe what a sexy woman should look like until the toxicity of it all almost killed me.”
In 2015, the former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, who suffers with Lyme disease, had her breast implants removed after discovering they had ruptured and were leaking into her chest cavity, and had exacerbated her symptoms from the condition, an infectious disease caused by a bacteria named Borrelia which is spread by ticks.
“Your health is your wealth,” she told her three million followers, “so please make educated decisions, research the partial information you’re given by our broken system before putting anything foreign in your body.”
The mother of three, who also shares a son Anwar with ex-husband Mohamed Hadid, went on to admit she had made some “bad choices” but had finally found the courage to accept “the best version of myself by no standards but my own.”
“It’s on us to learn to love our selves and celebrate our unique, one of a kind beauty at all ages as we move through this journey called ‘life.’ Beauty has no meaning without your health,” she concluded.
