Richards continued: “I had a breast reduction surgery. I’ve never had implants, [but] I had double D’s. … I went in and I said, ‘I want smaller boobs. I don’t ever want to wear a bra again in my life.’ And here I am.”

I did this. [but]I really didn’t. I will tell you everything.”

Richards spoke out about another procedure she had in November 2020 when she revealed that she had had a nose job. “Since so many of you were speculating what I did or did not do to my face… here is your answer. I fixed my nose,” she wrote via her Instagram Story at the time, adding that she initially went under the knife to address the discomfort she felt after breaking her nose the year before. “I broke it last September and the bone poking out bothered me. So I fixed the bone, fixed my breathing problems and refined the top.”
She continued: “I will always tell you guys the truth. I do think some of the comments on my posts are funny though.”
She also shared photos of various stages of her recovery and answered questions from her fans about the process. “Personally, it was not painful for me at all,” Richards revealed. “I was low key enjoying the downtime and watching movies which I never do. 5 days I stayed home.” While her husband, Mauricio Umansky, “was nervous about me not looking like myself,” she added that “even he is happy with the result.”

She had previously undergone the procedure in 2006. “My nose bothered me for a long time,” she told Us WeeklyMarch 2013. “The surgery made me feel better.” In 2012, she also had liposuction, telling Use, “After having four kids, no matter what exercise I did, the love handles wouldn’t go away! I’m very happy with the results!”
