On Jennifer Aydin's rookie season on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, she saw some things she didn't like: "I was really big on top, meaning my breasts were large, and I hated them. They were like these big melons. They were mushy from breastfeeding five kids," the mom, who is married to plastic surgeon Dr. Bill Aydin revealed to Page Six. This led Jennifer to make the decision to go under the knife. "Obviously seeing yourself on camera helps motivate you," she explained.
Naturally, it was her husband holding the scalpel. Bill performed both a breast reduction and a breast lift with an implant on his wife, in addition to liposuction. The liposuction, which Jennifer explained included contouring her back to shave off "about three and a half pounds of fat," resulted in an overall 15-pound weight loss. "Then I was like, 'Wow! I'm looking smaller and smaller, I got the small boobs, I got this hourglass figure, now I wanna lose some weight,'" she said.
After the surgery, Jennifer lost another 10 pounds by sticking to a strict diet. A month ago, she started exercising.
It seems Jennifer is feeling better than ever. This week, she took to Instagram to share the results of her body transformation with a glowing no makeup photo. She told Page Six she's ready for "new chapters" and "new beginnings."
