When the size of Amber Rose’s breasts started to negatively impact her health and wellbeing, she decided to have them reduced â a decision she contemplated for nearly three years.
âI was scared that I wouldn’t feel sexy anymore, but it got to the point where I literally was in pain,â Rose tells PEOPLE. âIt was almost as if I had like a heavy backpack on my chest.â
âMy boobs slowed me down. And, my partner, Maks, would be like, âCome on! Hurry up, faster, faster, faster.’ And, I’m like, âDude, I can’t go any faster! I’m like in pain. I literally cannot move that fast,’ â she says.
Although Rose was worried about scarring, the model made the decision to go through with the surgery after the pain became unbearable.
âI got my boobs when I was 14, but I would say, over the years, as my weight fluctuated, my boobs fluctuated. And, so, after I had my son, I mean, my boobs, they got bigger. They got way, way bigger. They definitely made me look older when I was a teenager, and also, I felt it made me look heavier as well because they were so big,â says Rose, whose breasts were a 36H cup size naturally. âThey weren’t implants or anything like that and so, my back was hurting me. There was times I would just walk and just stop and be like âŠ it would kill me. And, so, at that point, I was like, this is more of like a health issue, where I have to get this done.â
Rose had the three-and-a-half-hour surgery performed by Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Garth Fisher in January.
âAmber had really large breasts that looked gorgeous, and the pressure was to make them smaller and beautiful,â Fisher says.
Now at a 36DDD cup size, Rose says âit’s like a dream come trueâ to wear things like spaghetti-strapped tank tops.â
âNow when I’m running out the door, I don’t have to search for the right bra to fit within the shirt or to match the color of the shirt, so, it doesn’t show and look gaudy,â Rose says. âI can kind of just throw it on and I’m like, âThis is amazing!’ I’ve been missing this my whole life.â
