Danica Patrick is the most successful open-wheel driver in American racing history. Coupled with an incredible look, Danica became incredibly popular during the 2000s. One of her efforts to improve those looks recently caused her a serious health scare.

Danica had her breast implants removed this week. Patrick shared the news via social media. The famous racecar driver opened up about the illness the implants caused her.

Patrick said about three years after she got the breast implants, she noticed she started losing her hair. She gained weight. Eventually, her entire system got out of whack. Doctors determined that her implants were the cause of the illness, and on Wednesday, they were removed.

“I got breast implants November of 2014. I got them because I want to have it all. I was really fit, but I didn’t have boobs. So I got them. Everything went well, and I was happy with them.

Fast forward about 3 years to early 2018, and I noticed that my hair was not as healthy and was breaking off. I also gained a few pounds and had no luck losing it.

Then fast forward to late 2020…. and the wheels came off. I had cycle irregularity, gained more weight, my hair wasn’t looking healthy at all and my face was a different shape (weird I know). So I went down the rabbit hole to figure it out. I did every test that could be done…

I had them removed on Wednesday. The picture is a snap shot of a couple hours before and a couple hours after. Within hours after surgery this is what I noticed – my face had more color and less dark circles (no food before the second pic), my face started producing oil again, I could take a 30% deeper breath into my chest already, and I had so much energy when I woke up (and surgery was at 230pm).”

Danica Patrick was feeling better immediately after the operation. She shared a side-by-side picture that showed her improvement. Hopefully, she has a quick recovery and can get back to her normal life.
