Afterward, she began having issues accepting the body changes that happened as a result. Her breasts were smaller and slightly uneven, she said. For someone who had spent years being "praised" for her body, Gisele started feeling like she was not pretty enough.

I felt like people had expectations from me that I couldn’t deliver. I felt very vulnerable, because I can work out, I can eat healthy, but I can’t change the fact that both of my kids enjoyed the left boob more than the right. All I wanted was for them to be even and for people to stop commenting on it.

In 2015, she then decided to get breast implants. But she regretted it almost as soon as it was done. 

When I woke up, I was like, ‘What have I done?’ I felt like I was living in a body I didn’t recognize. For the first year, I wore [baggy] clothes because I felt uncomfortable.
