I will never change my body for a man again

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - NEWS - BRIANA DOMJEN SYD­NEY CON­FI­DEN­TIAL

NEW Bach­e­lorette Ali Oet­jen deeply re­grets get­ting breast im­plants and lip filler and doesn’t want to a man who is “just at­tracted to my boobs”.

The 32-year-old said her big­gest mis­take was hav­ing breast en­hance­ment surgery nine years ago in a bid to im­press a boyfriend and she hopes to get them re­moved or re­duced.

“My boobs were not money well spent,” Oet­jen said. “If I had my time over, I would not have got them done. When I got them done, I did it for some­one else. I thought it would make them happy. I have also had my lips done, ages ago, and won’t do it again,” she said.

“I would only ever have plas­tic surgery again to get my breast im­plants re­moved. “I do not like my boobs.” The South Aus­tralian­born beauty, who is set to star in the lat­est se­ries of the Chan­nel 10 show, said she prides her­self on her nat­u­ral and healthy life­style and has learnt her large im­plants are at odds with that.

“I want to por­tray a re­ally healthy and pos­i­tive body im­age for women now,” she said. “I want to re­in­force that if women want to do some­thing like get breast aug­men­ta­tion, they should do it for them­selves, not any­one else.

“My mes­sage to other women is never change your­self for some­one else.

“Be happy with how you look and who you are and have a think about what makes you happy, be­cause you are the only per­son who counts. You are in con­trol of your own hap­pi­ness and no car, no ma­te­ri­al­is­tic things, no boobs, are go­ing to do that for you.”

Oet­jen said she was look­ing for a healthy, kind man with “strong fam­ily val­ues” who would make a great hus­band and father.
