Kailyn Lowry Explains Why She Went Under the Knife, Opens Up About Eating Disorders

Kailyn Lowry isn’t leaving any stone unturned in her new tell-all, Hustle and Heart.

In the memoir — due on shelves Nov. 22. — the Teen Mom 2 star explains she decided to get plastic surgery after struggling with not only body image issues but also an eating disorder.

“For years I struggled with eating disorders and I was extremely self-conscious about my weight,” she writes. “This is rarely something you ever completely get over. It’s nice to think that the ultimate goal would be to feel totally at peace with my body, whatever it looks like. But in reality, that’s something that has to be maintained continuously.”

She says she decided to go under the knife — for a tummy tuck and Brazilian butt lift — after she was unsatisfied with the results, despite dedicating herself to Crossfit and eating healthily.

“My decision to get plastic surgery came down to one simple thing: I’m human,” she explains. “I care [about] how I look. I knew that being satisfied with my outer appearance would give me the confidence I needed to face the world head on.”
