Actress Melissa Gilbert for many years participated in the series Little House on the Prairie. She started acting in it when she was ten years old and finished shooting 19-year-old girl.
During this time, her character has changed a lot. But Melissa herself had been growing up slowly. For a long time she had the figure of a boy. And for the sake of credibility she was often sewed costumes with special pads that mimic the breasts.
52-year-old Gilbert still remembers the shame and frustration that she felt about this on the set.
The actress says that her figure had formed only at the age of 25 after the birth of her first child, but till that time she was distant from the ideals of femininity.
Professional dancer Richard Giorla popularized among Hollywood stars a new way to stay in shape – perform dance exercises with weights (dumbbells or special weighting). Thus, the body gets both flexibility and increases muscle mass.
The actress felt uncertainty about how her breasts looked after feeding, but her son’s health was worth it. And then her husband said that her breasts looked not best way and a few years later the couple divorced. It was not only because of the comment, even though it was a symptom that everything was wrong between them.
And Melissa was left alone and experienced large complexes about her breasts. So then, without delving into research about the consequences, she did mammoplasty. Implants were not too big – just to fill the space under the skin.
But the star could not help thinking that the implants have an expiration date. She would have to change them every 10-15 years. And then, at 80 set new implants, huh? She also began to dwell on the fact that her body contained silicone and that it could cause problems.
To be honest, the actress wanted to take classes of Zumba without fear that her breasts can jump and guide her black eyes.
Modern implants filled with silicone, have a lifetime warranty, but Melissa is not only one worried about safety. Finally, the actress got rid of the implants.
