Yesterday Kim and partner Tony Dovolani started rehearsing for their season finale dance. A mini stroke may have caused Kim to leave the show prematurely, but never fear, the ever-resilient Kim will prove she can still shake her wig!
In the latest issue of the weekly mag, Kim, 32, tells the mag she was unhappy with her body’s appearance while looking at some Miami vacation pictures of herself 4 months ago. “My boobs looked crazy and saggy,” she reveals. So, Kim decided to undergo three hours of surgery to replace the saline implants she’d gotten at age 20 with lighter silicone ones.
And despite being happy with the results, Kim reveals she had to go back under the knife once more after tearing some of her stitches. Now healing and happier than ever, Kim says, “I love my new boobs. They’re so perky. I feel fantastic!”
Excerpts from Kim’s interview with the mag below –
So the initial surgery went okay? It went great. I had my nipple moved up half an inch, so my boobs were lifted without having a scar from the nipple to underneath the breast.
What went wrong afterward? I went to the Bahamas with Kandi, Sheree and our kids eight days after the procedure. I went down a water slide and tore some of the stitches.
Ouch! Were you okay? I felt a sharp pain in my left breast but didn’t realize how serious it was until the bandages came off and there was a tear around my nipple. I had to go back to get it fixed.
Will you have more surgery in the future? I’d like to do a tummy tuck at some point to get rid of a few stretch marks.
Below are more photos of Kim, including the photos from her Miami vacation earlier this year. The new season of the Real Housewives of Atlanta will premiere on October 4.
