Ashley told her followers that after she removed the implants just last winter, she found herself on a new journey of ‘self-acceptance and self-love.’
The celeb was brave enough to get candid about some of her mental health struggles in hopes of helping and inspiring others going through similar things.
Ashley Tisdale wrote about some of her darkest moments but also how this one change to her body helped her start a new journey towards achieving self-love.

Hey guys, this is probably the most personal post I’ve ever shared. As you know, I’ve been very open about my mental health journey and feel that this is equally important. Years ago I underwent breast enhancement surgery. Prior to the surgery, I constantly felt my body was less than, and thought this change would make me feel more whole and more secure about myself. And for a short period of time…it did. But little by little I began struggling with minor health issues that just were not adding up—food sensitivities as well as gut issues (full story on @frenshe) that I thought could be caused by my implants. So, last winter I decided to undergo implant removal. This journey has been one of growth, self discovery, self acceptance and most importantly self-love. This picture above was taken two months after my explant surgery and I think you can tell just how happy I am to finally be fully me. Over the years I’ve met with many holistic and non-holistic doctors and learned the importance of living a non-toxic life. I’m super excited to share with you what I’ve learned thus far, and would love for you to take this journey with me by following @frenshe, where we take an honest approach to our well-being and openly speak to health, beauty and everything in between. I can’t say I’m the proudest of the choices I made in the past but I don’t regret it because it got me here today. ❤️ Love you all! @frenshe is NOW LIVE!!

The celeb went on to reveal that after a while, however, she started to experience health problems that she suspected could have been caused by the implants, so she decided to remove them!
After she did get rid of them, the actress went on a journey ‘of growth, self-discovery, self-acceptance and most importantly, of self-love. This picture was taken two months after my explant surgery and I think that you can tell how happy I am to be finally fully me.’
