Sherri Shepherd Reveals She Underwent a Breast Reduction, Explains Why & Talks Changes

Sherri Shepherd opened up about her decision to undergo a breast reduction.

The 56-year-old talk show host told her fans about the procedure during the season premiere of Sherri.

While explaining why she went through with the process, she also compared it to her body transformation and called out health insurance companies for not prioritizing women’s health.

“I got my boob job,” Sherri jumped up to announce while dancing on her set. “I had a breast reduction over the summer,” she said, teasing that everything would be bigger for the new season of Sherri, “except these boobs.”

Sherri explained that she’d gotten “so many comments” from people telling her that she was “too top heavy.” That was not what inspired her decision to see the surgery through.

“To be clear, I did not get this boob job because of all the comments. I got the boob job because I just wanted to see what it felt like to sleep on my stomach,” she told her audience.

She revealed that she was a 42DD and came from a family where everyone had larger breasts. That made her decision to part with her “best friends” a tough and “bittersweet” decision. However, she said that they were causing problems for her body.

“I thought I was carrying around the weight of the world, but really it was the weight of my boobs,” Sherri joked. “All jokes aside, what happened was they were so heavy I was slouching all the time. It started becoming really painful; my back was hurting very badly. I was getting grooves in my shoulders because you had to pull up your bra.”

There were some big positives that came with the change. “I can sit up straight, I feel lighter, it’s easier to shop,” she said, listing just a few benefits.

Sherri made a comparison to her weight loss journey, saying, “When you first start losing weight, you can cross your legs. That’s the thing. You start seeing your collarbones. You know, when you get a breast job, I don’t have to wear a bra.”

She also called out health insurance companies for refusing to cover the procedure, even when it is necessary to relieve pain.

If you missed it, earlier this year Sherri revealed the atypical “classroom” where she really learned.
