Tamra was asked: ‘Have you had menopause symptoms and how do you combat the tummy spread?’

Last year, she underwent breast implant and capsule removal surgery 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; 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.’ 

Tamra claimed she was 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. 

Judge revealed her decision via Instagram Story one week prior to her surgery, 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.

 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 36-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.
