Bristol Palin Has Been Open About Her Plastic Surgery Journey: See Photos of Her Transformation

Teen Mom OG alum Bristol Palin is no stranger to going under the knife for cosmetic and plastic surgery procedures, including nine breast reconstruction surgeries

“Sharing wayyyyy TMI right now, but had my [ninth] breast reconstruction surgery last night — yes, NINTH. All stemming from a botched breast reduction I had when I was 19 [years old],” Bristol shared via her Instagram Story in January 2023. “I’ve had previous surgeries trying to correct that initial damage of muscle tissue and terrible scaring [sic]. The whole situation has honestly made me very self conscious my entire adult life.”

The Alaska native went on to say that she didn’t want to be “a whiner,” but that the process had caused her to “pause” her life, and she was “praying this is the last surgery needed.” 

“Trying my hardest to stay positive, hype myself up, and remind myself that I have so much to be thankful for,” she continued. “I’m healthy, fully capable, and this is just an inconvenience cause things could always be way worse.”

Bristol – who shares son Tripp with ex Levi Johnston and daughters Sailor and Atlee with ex-husband Dakota Meyer – later revealed that she was healing “fine.”

“I had 2 major surgeries within the last couple months, and I think being under anesthesia for so many hours affected my body more than I have wanted to admit,” she said a month later. “But I’m 4 weeks post-op and finally feeling like I’m on the mend.”

Two months after her surgery, Bristol gave fans an update on her recovery, saying she’s doing “wayyy better [sic].” 

“The last surgery I had felt like such a setback, but I’m [two] months post-op and finally feel normal again,” she assured one questioning fan. 

While Bristol has been open about her breast augmentation, she previously denied that a 2010 procedure to correct her jaw was for cosmetic purposes. 

“It’s not plastic surgery,” she told Us Weekly at the time. “Yes, It improved the way I look, but this surgery was necessary for medical reasons… so my jaw and teeth could properly realign… I don’t obsess over my face.”

While Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far author insisted that the procedure was necessary medically, she did admit to loving her new appearance. 

“I am absolutely thrilled with the results,” she told the outlet. “I look older, more mature, and don’t have as much of a chubby little baby face!”
