Take a spin through Jessica Trufant’s blog Fab5Mom or Instagram, and you’ll see a busy mom of five who’s all about keeping it real. Whether she’s talking about contouring or parenting, there is an element of humor to every post by Trufant, a Seattle-based lifestyle maven and the wife of former Seahawks player Marcus Trufant.
Another area Trufant is candid about? Her breast augmentation. We talked with Trufant about her surgery — or what she calls her “best investment ever.”
It’s been six years since your breast augmentation. How did it feel to openly share your experience?
After six years, sharing my story was liberating and a bit funny! I enjoyed playfully joking about my procedure, as well as encouraging and comforting women who are unsure about plastic surgery and the judgment that sometimes comes along with it.
🍉🍉NEW BLOG POST🍉🍉 I am pretty much an open book. In the past if you would of asked me how I felt about plastic surgery, I would of frowned and told you I felt it was unnecessary, superficial and Hollywood. That is until breastfed my third baby. I no longer had breasts, I had flapjacks. I took matters into my own hands and I simply took back what was taken from me with a little added sumthin sumthin 😜. Happy Fifth Year Anniversary to my Boobies. Link in my bio.
What was the most challenging aspect of the surgery?
The most challenging aspect of my procedure was all mental. I was scared out of my mind at the thought of “going under the knife.” But I had a great doctor, staff and, of course, meds. They reassured me that I would be just fine. Once I was able to get out of my own head I was golden!
The best part of your recovery?
How did you discuss your decision to get breast implants with friends and family, including your husband Marcus Trufant?
The decision to get breast implants didn’t really warrant discussion. Once my eyes were open to the reality of my kids literally nursing my boobs away to nothing, I was getting my boobs back. Period.
Of course, when I told Marcus he was a little apprehensive, but he knew it was something I really wanted and was very supportive. When I told my friends they were super excited, and many expressed their want for breast augmentation in the future.
You’re a mom of five. What advice would you give to other mothers considering plastic surgery or cosmetic treatments?
To other mothers who are on the fence about plastic surgery I say, “Just do it!” You’ve earned it, you deserve it, and you will thank yourself for it in the end.
My breasts were hands down the best investment ever! Don’t let anyone discourage you from doing something to make yourself feel good. If I had to chance to do it again, I’d go through the entire process over and over!
