Madison LeCroy Is Changing The Conversation Around Mommy Plastic Surgery

If you feel like you’ve been hearing the name Madison LeCroy a whole lot lately, you aren’t wrong. The Southern Charm star has been at the forefront of the Season 7 drama as her relationship with fellow Charmer Austen Kroll went from makeup to break up in front of millions of viewers. There were also those Jay Cutler rumors and then the A-Rod rumors, but it isn’t easy to make Madison sweat.

Since making her debut on the Bravo series in Season 2 as a guest, fans have gravitated towards Hudson’s mother for her no-nonsense attitude all while looking good from head to toe. We saw more of her in Season 6 as she became a friend of the cast via her relationship with Austen, but it wasn’t until Season 7 that we got to see Madison in all her glory.

If you’re a Bravo-lover like me you may have noticed that the single mom was getting sexier as Season 7 went on and showed up to the reunion looking like a SI cover model. Her body was so bangin’, even Andy Cohen had to bring up her sexiness, which is the first time Madison shared news of her “mommy makeover” on camera. The South Carolina-native opened up about her breast augmentation and belly button reconstruction and even shared she and fellow Southern Charm cast member Kathryn Dennis share the same plastic surgeon, Dr. Patrick O’Neill. LeCroy has never been shy about her love of a sexy pic or how important looking good is to her.

Flash forward to a few weeks after the reunion aired and the mother-of-one opened up on Instagram about why she chose plastic surgery. “Plastic surgery. Two words I hadn’t given much thought to. I never thought I would need, much less want, plastic surgery. However, after giving birth to an 10lb baby eight years ago, I no longer felt confident in my own skin,” shared the Bravo star.

“I’ve always been fitness obsessed and aware of what I was eating but sometimes, no matter how much you diet and exercise, there are areas that don’t quite bounce back to where they were originally. Recently I was introduced to Dr. Patrick O’Neill and he gave me my confidence back and transformed the parts of my body that I was most self-conscious about. Women should never be shamed for doing anything that makes themselves more confident or love themselves more. If it makes you feel better about yourself, do it! If your sister, mother, daughter or friend is considering doing something to boost their confidence and self-worth, then support them! Just like Dolly Parton said, ‘If I see something saggin’ , baggin’ or dragin’ , I’m gonna have it nipped, tucked or sucked.’?

I mean, a moment of appreciation for this insanely hot photo. But on a more serious note, it was beautiful to see such a candid self-love journey and moment on my feed. The sincere and frank account has inspired many other women to share their own journey with their bodies. In a world where mommy shaming is very much real (it’s only gotten worse since the start of the pandemic) and mothers are constantly comparing themselves to what they see on the gram, this is incredibly refreshing from the single mother who just opened a salon, Maven, with longtime work partner Meg Workman.

In the words of Miss LeCroy, “If it makes you feel better about yourself, do it!” After bringing life into this world, you deserve whatever it is you need to feel as amazing as you are. Whatever that may be for you is your business and yours alone. Cheers to vulnerability and to changing the conversation on post-mommy bodies!
