‘Today was tough but tomorrow is a new day’: Former Big Brother star Krystal Hipwell shares a photo of herself crying three days after undergoing breast explant surgery
Krystal Hipwell (née Forscutt) has faced a rough journey after having had her breast implants removed at the end of last week.
The 35-year-old shared a photo with her daughter, Nakoda, on Instagram on Tuesday, after revealing she was feeling emotional post-surgery on Monday.
The former Big Brother star’s initial picture saw her laying on her bed and in tears.

‘Day 3 post-explant. Today was tough but tomorrow is a new day. Thank you to those checking in on me,’ she captioned the photo.
The mother-of-three continued: ‘I promise I’ll update you all soon. For now, I just need to rest as much as I can.’
Krystal also shared a black-and-white photo with her two-year-old daughter and wrote: ‘Feeling slightly more human today…’

The influencer initially gave updates after her surgery last week from her hospital bed where she said she was feeling ‘pretty groggy’ but ‘very relieved.’
The day before she was discharged from hospital, Krystal recalled that she had a ‘really rough night’ and was now taking ‘every pain killer under the sun’.
She has since been dealing with the pain post-surgery since arriving home and is currently on the mend.

The former reality alum made the decision to have her implants removed after discovering a rupture to her right implant during an ultrasound.
Krystal went to have an ultrasound after experiencing intense pain in her right breast from the rupture while she was pregnant with her son Husky.
She later exhibited her implants post-surgery via a post to Instagram, which sees her silicone inserts lying on a hospitable table with one completely torn.
‘Can’t believe how bad the rupture actually was,’ she captioned the photo.

The model has since recommended an ultrasound for people who are experiencing pain or who have had implants in for ‘longer than 10 years’.
‘I got them in 16 years ago. Apparently they are only supposed to be safe for around 10 years, so maybe worth getting an ultrasound for piece of mind.’
Before going into surgery, Krystal said the removal marked a ‘new chapter’ in her life after getting her implants when she was 19.
