Gwendlyn Brown has taken a break from talking about her family members to focus on herself.
The 21-year-old daughter of Christine and Kody Brown has been using her YouTube channel for the past few months to rewatch a previous episode of Sister Wives.
He then comments on the stories, often criticizing his infamous father for being selfish and worthless.
However, on July 12, Gwendlyn shared a couple of photos (put together below) on Instagram and explained why she posted them online.
“Happy breast reduction anniversary,” the reality star captioned the photos.
“I had my sinus surgery on July 11, 2022, so technically yesterday was the anniversary, but who’s counting?”
Brown said in the accompanying YouTube video that he wanted the procedure to boost his confidence and help with the health of his spine, adding that about a year passed between his decision to have the surgery…
…and for the surgery to actually take place.
The procedure lasted five hours, involved tying her arms and legs down… and was apparently terrifying.
“I was thinking to myself, I was like, ‘I’m going to die here,'” she said on YouTube.
“I was in a panic, my heart was pounding, and then I passed out.”
Brown said she woke up in a wheelchair after surgery and her mother carried her back to the car.
Over the next few days, she took prescription pain medication and was forced to wear a compression bra to help with post-surgery healing, as well as wear a ventilator to “help my body get back to normal.”
Gwendlyn, who is not a fan of Robyn Brown, continued:
“I had this terrible pain in my scars or open wounds at the time and there was nothing I could do about it. She felt like bruises that were constantly being pushed down.
“A horrible, horrible feeling.”
It was very challenging, but Gwendlyn praised her fiancée Beatriz Queiroz and other loved ones for acting like a “full service team” during the recovery period.
In the end?
Yes, she still has scars from the procedure, but Brown said she’s “very happy” with the results.
More than very happy, in fact.
“It is one of the best decisions I have made in my life. I have no regrets,” she added. “It feels amazing not to be teased or sexualized so much.”
