"I had my armpit sucked out," she says, explaining that she underwent liposuction to remove extra fat from under her arms nine years ago, which gave her more confidence when wearing sleeveless tops. "It added two inches of length to my arms... [that fat] is coming back though, so I might need to go in and pay for it again."
Teigen later took to Twitter to clarify her remarks to Byrdie.
"Reminder to never ever joke, ever (I did do the armpits, no regrets except it clearly came back)," she tweeted alongside a headline claiming she had extensive plastic surgery on her face and body. "You think I'd have this a** if I'd done extensive work? Like who would ask for this a**. ?."
