I will never change my body for a man again
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.
