Bristol Palin is recovering from her ninth breast reconstruction surgery.
The reality star shared the new son Instagram Stories, revealing the surgeries were a result of a past “botched breast reduction” years ago.
Palin posted a photo of herself in a compression bra with surgical drains, writing, “Sharing wayyyyy [too much information] right now, but had my 9th breast reconstruction surgery last night — yes, NINTH. All stemming from a botched breast reduction I had when I was 19.”
She added, “I’ve had previous surgeries trying to correct the initial damage of muscle tissue and terrible scaring. The whole situation has honestly made me very self-conscious my entire adult life.”
Bristol said she was “praying” this would be her last surgery, and insisted, “I hate being a whiner but it kinda does put a setback/pause on life and that’s why I’ve been fairly MIA.”
The 32-year-old is trying to “stay positive” and remember she has “so much to be thankful for.”
She went on, “I’m healthy, fully capable, and this is just an inconvenience cause things could always be worse.”

She insisted, “Don’t let this place have you comparing your own worth and stealing your joy.”
Bristol emphasized the same in her caption, writing, “Way 222 easy to compare ourselves on here, just a reminder not to.”
