Amelia Hamlin is opening up about why she underwent a breast reduction at age 16. In an episode of The Skinny Confidential The podcast, which first launched in August, Lisa Rinna and Harry Hamlin’s daughter, now 19, revealed how eggs and an injury led to her decision to undergo breast reduction.
The eggs, Hamlin explained, “destroy” her body and cause her to “have strep throat in random places” as well. Before attending Coachella for a year, Hamlin was eating a lot of eggs, which ended up greatly aggravating the injury he sustained at the music festival.
The injury occurred when someone pushed her off a balcony at Coachella, causing the nipple ring to catch on something. Although the experience didn’t hurt at the time, when Hamlin got home, she felt ill and ended up with a 104-degree fever.
“My left tit was up to here. I was 16 years old and mastitis, whatever it is, “he said about a painful chest infection.” It was the worst thing I’ve ever been through. “
After being misdiagnosed with a kidney infection in the emergency room, a specialist told Hamlin that she had strep in her left breast, that they had been “within 12 hours of going. [into] septicemia, “and that he would have died in that time period.
“The nipple piercing they took out caused a small abrasion on my body,” she explained about how she got sick. “I already had strep living in my system and then it went to that part of my body because it was an open wound.”
Even after feeling better, the swelling in his chest remained.
“I didn’t get them off naturally. I’m not going to lie, I’ve never talked about this, but I had to have a full operation. I had to have a breast reduction,” she said. “I think my mom is going to kill me, but I’ve never said that … It made my breasts so uneven.”
“It was like, ‘Oh my God. Am I really going to have to live the rest of my life with my left tit significantly larger than my right tit?'” She added. “It’s hot and has veins.”
Hamlin has been in the news lately for his bikini reunion with Scott Disick.
Although Scott and Amelia have spent time together recently, a source told ET that they are not seriously dating. Rather, the two have mutual friends, and most of the time they have been together, other friends were also present.
“They’ve hung out and been on a couple of dates, but they’re not a couple,” the source told ET last week. “…[Scott] He’s not actively looking for a relationship, but he’s sad to have a good time. “
