'RuPaul's Drag Race': Where are judge Michelle Visage's breast implants? Here's a look at her plastic surgery history
She got her first plastic surgery done at the age of 21 and it was a breast implant that she now regrets
'RuPaul's Drag Race' Season 13 judge Michelle Visage has a long history of plastic surgeries. She doesn't mind the occassional top ups here and there but does regret getting her breasts enhanced at just 21. Talking to The Sun, she says she loves her breasts "but if I knew then what I know now, I wouldn’t put this toxic, artificial substance into my body."
After getting as many as three breast implants, Michelle decided to opt for an explant surgery (the process of removing implants). She has suffered from Hashimoto's disease, an autoimmune disorder, and believes her implants could have caused it or may have aggravated the condition. Now with the surgery out of the way, Michelle feels healthier and is looking forward to spending more time with husband David Case and daughters, Lillie and Lola.
"If you think about it, your immune system fights off invaders, and the biggest invaders in my body are two giant blobs of silicone,” she told People months after her explant surgery and added: “My autoimmune disease could be triggered by these invaders. So they needed to come out.”
Breast implants aside, Michelle gets botox done as and when needed but her fans were never for it. Seven years ago, when she cheekily announced her new website on her Facebook page with the caption: "I got a facelift! My hubby is the best." While she meant her new, revamped website, fans thought she got work done and couldn't keep themselves from pointing out that she didn't need any external help to look beautiful.
"How do you give a facelift perfection?!?! Angels don't need facelifts — Michelle you are gorgeous,no Tupaware plastic needed," one user had commented, while another shared: "Girl!!! You didn't need one!!! You're f*****g perfect/flawless how you are, but I do understand.....#FLAWLESSMAMAS!!!" "What are you crazy. You don't need a facelift there is absolutely nothing wrong with your face," another echoed.
However, Michelle believes to survive in the superficial world one needs to resort to certain measures. Talking to the Sun, she says it is tough to be fully accepting of oneself in today's times. But, she also says that one must be aware of the consequences of one's actions before they can take the leap.
