This Popular Beauty Vlogger Just Got Real About Why She Got Breast Implants And People Are Here For It

"I just literally feel like if you wake up one day and you wanna change something, you have the right to change it."

This is Jackie Aina, YouTube icon and beat extraordinaire. She's racked up 2.3 million-plus subscribers by keeping it real on everything from her fave makeup dupes to racist Internet trolls.

Most recently, Aina opened up about her new breast implants in a super candid vlog titled "SOOOOO I got plastic surgery."

Throughout the 18-minute long video, she breaks down her "boob journey" in true Jackie form, revealing her reasons for getting "fuller but still small" implants, her post-op experience and everything in between. Body augmentation is a very complex topic, and I don't wanna paraphrase Jackie's story, so you should DEFINITELY watch the full video.

"Straight up, I had a breast augmentation," the beauty influencer said in the viral video. "I got my boobs done and I’m not ashamed of that."

"I’m not going to make excuses for it," she told viewers. "I just literally feel like if you wake up one day and you wanna change something, you have the right to change it." Jackie later advised that “this is not something that you should take lightly." "It’s something you should go into understanding that this is forever," she added. "This a decision that will change your life forever."

She shared that she got the implants because she wanted "a hint more underboob" and "a little more fullness up top," admitting that she was happy that she waited until she was 30 before undergoing the procedure.

Aina also said she wanted to share the personal choice in such a public space because, "I feel like the great things about platforms like Youtube is that if I have questions, if I have doubts, if I have concerns, worries, I can get online and see a real person look me dead in the lens and tell me the truth about their experience."

And just a friendly reminder: everyone's body is their own and so is their decision to share (or NOT share) details about personal things like body augmentation.
