Tess Holliday wants her viewers to know that she has had several cosmetic surgery procedures done herself.
When she heard that people are using her image as a model and body positivity activist's model, she took to Twitter to share the message with her audience.
Hollidays conscience was caught out that a new Brazilian Butt Lift trend involved using herself and Ashely Graham, a fellow body positivity model, as blueprints.
Now, listen, I'm pro-plastic surgery. Im pro-do-what-you-want with your body. For a reason, the 37-year-old shared with her tens of thousands of followers.
Im just trying to stress to you guys that these are trends. Don't do anything to your body to fit into a trend. Don't do it.
In the past, the blogger and mother of two has been extremely open about her own self-image journey, including using this particular TikTok to acknowledge herself-related procedures, such as lip fillers and botox.
Yes I received lip filler years ago, and I get Botox occasionally for ME, but please remember that some of these procedures are life-threatening, and do your homework if you do love yall! #effyourbeautystandards
Holliday, who talked about her anorexia disorder on her social platform last spring, is no stranger to the topic. She has regularly posted about her recovery.
Im recovering from anorexia and im not ashamed to express myself out loud anymore, as I tweeted last May. Im the result of a culture that valorizes thinness and worth, but I am able to write my own narrative now. Im finally able to care for a body Ive suffered since my birth & am now free.
Although the influencer has dealt with worry in the past, she does not want the same for her followers, especially not in pursuit of emerging procedures like BBLs, which have a higher mortality rate than any other cosmetic surgery, according to The American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
Holliday stated to her online followers that how I am now good enough. I have made money from that.
Don't do anything about it. If you want to, fine. However, do not feel like you have to. Youre perfect as you are.
