29-year old new mother Christina Aguilera has long been known to have large breast implants. After her pregnancy, she revealed that they had swelled up to an E-cup (See Make Me Heal’s story on Christina Aguilera’s post-pregnancy plastic surgery). Now, many have noted that Christina’s bust looks much smaller, leading to speculation that she has had her large implants replaced with smaller ones.
Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Salzhauer says, “It is typical for moms to experience a loss of breast volume following breast feeding; however, Christina’s breasts are significantly smaller. It appears that she most likely exchanged her breast implants for smaller ones. Even the most significant post-baby breast changes shouldn’t decrease several cup sizes.”
As Christina has likely stopped nursing and lost at least most of her baby weight, her reduction in breast size could also likely be attributed to her body returning to its normal state.
OcBody plastic surgeon Dr John Di Saia says, “She stopped breast feeding or just got past her pregnancy and the hormonal changes you see with it. Her natural breast tissue was formerly stimulated and enlarged. Now as it is shrinking, her cup size and “perkiness” are shrinking with it.”
Manhattan plastic surgeon Dr Jennifer Walden says, “Christina Aguilera’s breasts do seem a bit smaller in recent pictures, but she has also slimmed down significantly since the birth of her son. Breasts become so naturally enlarged during pregnancy with milk, that it may very likely be involution or the normal physiologic downsizing of the breasts that happens once the baby is born and mom has stopped breastfeeding.”
Whatever the reason for Christina’s sudden shrinkage, she still looks great and has years of more music to make.
