    "I did that Dr. Diamond buccal fat removal thing here," she said, adding, "And since I quit drinking, I’m really seeing the results, and I like it. Yeah, I did it, what?"

    Chrissy Teigen takes to Instagram to reveal she’s had Buccal Fat Removal done by Dr Jason Diamond.

    For context, Dr. Jason Diamond is a facial plastic surgeon known for starring in shows like E!’s Dr. 90210 and Netflix’s Celebrity Plastic Surgeons.

    Chrissy, of course, revealed that she was sober in December of last year. "I was done with making an ass of myself in front of people (I'm still embarrassed), tired of day drinking and feeling like shit by 6, not being able to sleep," she said on her Instagram story.

    Chrissy, of course, has had a pretty rough past year. In May, Courtney Stodden named Chrissy as one celebrity who publicly harassed them while they were a teenager. (Courtney infamously married actor Doug Hutchinson, who was 34 years older than them, in 2011.)

    Since then, Chrissy apologized in a series of tweets, and later, a lengthier Medium post. Nevertheless, she experienced professional repercussions and has spoken out about being a member of the "cancel club," as she put it.

    When asked how long she expects to be a member of the "cancel club," the model told TMZ that she isn't sure.

    "All I can do is live my life and take care of my kids and family," she said. "Everyone else can make their choice."
