Ayesha Curry Reveals How Postpartum Depression Led to 'Rash Decision' to Get Plastic Surgery

Ayesha Curry is no stranger to speaking her mind, and now the chef and cookbook author is admitting she underwent plastic surgery following the birth of her second child while struggling with postpartum depression, a choice she now calls a “rash decision.”

Ayesha shared with Working Mother magazine, “I didn’t realize at the time, but after having Ryan, I was battling a bit of postpartum that lingered for a while. It came in the form of me being depressed about my body. So I made a rash decision.”

She added that she wanted to get a breast lift, but the procedure didn’t go as planned. “The intention was just to have them lifted, but I came out with these bigger boobs I didn’t want. I got the most botched boob job on the face of the planet. They’re worse now than they were before. I would never do anything like that again, but I’m an advocate of if something makes you happy, who cares about the judgment?”

Now that Ayesha is working mom, it appears her priorities have shifted, and her self-esteem has been boosted. “The little things that used to seem like problems aren’t problems at all anymore. Things roll off my back more easily.”

Ayesha recently made headlines when she received backlash for making comments on "Red Table Talk" about how she receives “zero male attention,” as opposed to husband Steph Curry, who often has other women throwing themselves at him.

She fired back at critics of her words in a social media post that defended her feelings. A part of her caption read, "It brings me pure joy to speak my mind, be vulnerable at times and to know myself inside and out. Seeing as how it’s mental health awareness month I really want to take the time to encourage everyone to speak their truth regardless of perception, fitting into a mold or offending someone, because it’s YOUR truth. And that’s okay!”

This is me throwing a pair of spanx in a Marie Kondo-Esque bin. “Does it spark joy?” I have never been one to cage my feelings and emotions to any capacity. I am human. It brings me pure joy to speak my mind, be vulnerable at times and to know myself inside and out. Seeing as how it’s mental health awareness month I really want to take the time to encourage everyone to speak their truth regardless of perception, fitting into a mold or offending someone, because it’s YOUR truth. And that’s okay! If what I’m not afraid to say out loud about being a 30yr mama of 3 helps another woman like me feel like they’re not the alone and not the only one with an insecurity (because we ALL have them, don’t play) then that makes all of this hoopla worth it. If you get a chance to watch the actual RTT and not the headlines and rumors please do! There is so much more depth to the talk and our family is grateful to @jadapinkettsmith for giving us the opportunity to bond together. As women let’s continue to uplift, empower and not suppress and compress our feelings and thoughts, as fleeting as some of them may be 😏. Love to you all! Go FIND YOUR JOY and SPEAK YOUR TRUTH unapologetically. 🙏🏽(that’s all-Miranda voice)
