I applaud Angelina Jolie and any other woman for taking the necessary medical steps to live a longer and healthier life for her family and Cancer is a HUGE deal so don’t think I am making light of it, but if I hear one more person give her kudos for having her breasts removed because she’s considered one of the most beautiful women in the world, I will scream!
Her breasts being removed is much more deeper than Hollywood beauty and beside the point! I think people are literally visualizing her breasts being hacked off, but that’s not the case. The procedure involves removing the tissue inside the breasts and replacing it with implants.
Besides, now Angelina Jolie will always have perfect, perky breasts, so her vanity is still in tact and I’m sure she got a pair that hold up better than the original. Of course if she decides to have more children, before having her ovaries removed (she has a 50% chance of developing ovarian Cancer), she will not be able to breastfeed; other than that the physical aspects of her decision were probably last on her list of worries. Angelina has said that she doesn’t feel less of a woman after the procedure and she shouldn’t because the breasts don’t make the woman. The woman makes the breasts!
Werk those new ta-tas, Angelina!
