“The new me. Happier and healthier. Using 2016 to reclaim my health and embrace and love myself for the real me. Thank you for the overwhelming support on my post yesterday, I love you,” Hefner, 30, captioned a pic of herself in an American flag bikini.
The model and wife of Hugh Hefner is on her way to a healthier life after suffering from a series of serious of medical issues, which she believes stemmed from her toxic breast implants. In a lengthy post on Tuesday, she outlined her silent suffering and revealed that she had the implants removed.
“I’ve had days in 2016 when I couldn’t get out of bed,” she wrote. “I’ve felt such despair knowing life was happening all around me but I couldn’t participate.”
Crystal used old photos to keep an active social media presence and was forced to miss out on photo shoots and a summer DJ residency due to her severe symptoms.
Now she is on the slow road to recovery.
“My implants took 8 years to make me this sick, so I know it will take time to feel better,” she continued. “I also have other illnesses to address, but with the toxic bags removed, my immune system can focus on what it needs to.”
