Maria Kang, fitness influencer, apologizes for fake body by removing implants

Six years down the line and Maria Kang is singing a new song. The blogger went viral in 2013 for getting breast implants, and then asking users what their excuse was for not working toward a ‘banging’ body. She was instantly criticized for body-shaming and pushing unrealistic body types. But now Maria is not only apologizing for her mistake — she took off her implants too!

Maria Kang says she regrets it all

The super hot 39-year-old mother of three says she’s sorry.

Flashback to 2013, Maria Kang was certainly body goals ( she still is though), until she pissed many off with an Insta post. The fitness blogger hit ‘fatter’ mothers with a What’s Your Excuse?’ to not get in shape challenge, but got called out for body-shaming instead.

Many thought she was forcing people to look like her. However, Maria had a different explanation at the time.

“What you interpret is not MY fault. It’s Yours”, she began.

“The first step in owning your life, your body and your destiny is to OWN the thoughts that come out of your own head. I didn’t create them. You created them. So, if you want to continue ‘hating’ this image, get used to hating many other things for the rest of your life.”

Even after that, she returned with an updated ‘What’s your reason’ movement last year.

Well now, Maria is apologizing for it all. She has removed her breast implants and opened up about ‘normalizing an unnatural body standard’.

“I’m sorry, I don’t like regrets, but I have a few in life. As I look at my scarred, numb and deflated breasts today, I regret ever thinking they weren’t good enough. I fell into the insecurity trap”

She explained her motives then and shared photos of herself post-surgery

“I remember the day I made the decision to augment my breasts clearly. I didn’t research and never thought about needing or wanting it before. But, when I was told it was something I “had” to do to win — I did it. Without question. A part of me died that day”, Maria admitted to all.

The fitness blogger blamed her decision to get fake boobs on eating disorders and self-esteem. But after years of not being able to sleep on her chest, and experiencing ‘heart flutters’, Kang had to let them go.

It’s taken some time for me to put my thoughts together as so much has happened these last few days. I successfully had an explant surgery with total capsulectomy and scar tissue removal on Thursday. However, on Friday (swipe left) I underwent a Hematoma and needed emergency surgery for internal bleeding (which I was awake for!) I consider today, Day Two of my healing. ⁣ ⁣ As many know I’ve been experiencing heart palpitations, joint pain and acne for years. Most recently the chronic fatigue and chest pressure became really unbearable to function (and stay awake throughout the day!)⁣ ⁣ Some doctors will say this is all psychological and choosing to remove implants when undergoing autoimmune symptoms creates a placebo effect – after all, many feel better almost immediately after surgery. ⁣ ⁣ This is my take – as I’m often a very black and white person when it comes to things. Your body will fight against foreign objects, I instantly felt it years ago. Yes scar tissue builds up, yes your liver detoxes, but it is not normal or natural. Change will create change.⁣ ⁣ If you are considering surgery or had your breast augmented, just do your due diligence. In my years advocating to people around me NOT to do it, 100% of them did. And I get it. We don’t think about the long term effects, the regular maintenance, the toxic chemicals in silicone or the risks going under in any surgery. We just want to feel and look more “beautiful”. ⁣ ⁣ As a young, impressionable girl, I got the message. Unless I had smooth skin, long legs, a proportionate physique, full breasts, a small nose, plump lips, thick hair….I had less chances of winning. I literally bought into this. We all do. Every day. ⁣ ⁣ Well today I am winning. I am winning for my kids, my overall health and my longevity. I am winning. ⁣ ⁣ Keep in mind, I don’t live an all-organic life, I am aware toxins exist everywhere – but if I can choose to not have them live in me, I choose NO.⁣ ⁣ Thank you to Dr Hause in Sacramento for literally saving me on a late Friday evening. Thank you to all the DMs, texts, prayers and posts. I SEE those who care. Thank you. ⁣ ⁣ #noexcusemom #bii #breastimplantillness #explant #saline

“I was stuck in the social media world, where fake physiques are rewarded, “liked” and valued. I feared my husband’s opinion. I liked how I looked in clothes and swimsuits.”

“I was vain. And I own that”, she said further in another post.

Maria Kang then used her experience to empower

Right after narrating her ordeal and reasoning, the influencer strongly discouraged anyone from getting implants, or altering their bodies.

‘You are beautiful. You are enough. You are “liked”. ⁣’

Maria hopes her “vulnerability will encourage you to love your body and to value spirits that love their bodies too.”

“All the filters, body-altering apps, fillers and fake body parts will not make you more beautiful than you are right now”, she advised further.⁣

Fans and followers are very appreciative

Thankfully, this time Kang got the message across. In her comments, so many people have accepted her movement, and are congratulating her for her ‘realness’.

“Maria, this is by far the most sincere post you’ve ever posted and I appreciate it,” one user wrote.

“Thank you for sharing and for being so vulnerable, we appreciate it! Even if it stops just one woman from getting these toxic bags it’s worth it”, a user who also shares in her experience wrote.

“I’m so glad you shared this! I was set on ‘restoring’ my breasts after my husband and I are done having children. This is really giving me motive to think again,” a follower declared.
