Former “Real Housewives of Orange County” star Tamra Judge shared an update about her health on a February episode of her podcast, “Two Ts In A Pod,” co-hosted by Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave. Judge explained that she had her saline “breast implants removed about six months ago,” as she believed they were causing her to have “autoimmune issues,” which could indicate that she had breast implant illness. She revealed that she recently received positive news after getting “blood work done.”
“In result of removing my breast implants is that I have zero signs of autoimmune disease, zero signs of thyroid Hashimoto’s, my thyroid levels are actually perfect, no inflammation in my body and I can be off all medication, thyroid medication,” said Judge.
The former Bravo personality went on to say that she previously “had silicone implants,” which did not cause her to have health issues.
“I had silicone implants forever for 25 years and I obviously had them replaced multiple times but this last time I them put back in, I had saline which I never had saline, which they are supposed to be safer but evidently, it was the bag that was carrying the saline solution, the actual implant bag is what my body was rejecting,” explained the 54-year-old.

During a July 2017 appearance on “Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen,” Judge shared that she decided to get a lower facelift in celebration of starring on “RHOC” for 10 years. She explained that she had a consultation with Dr. Ambe. She shared that since losing “so much body fat” in preparation for a bodybuilding competition, she noticed that the skin on her face was “drooping.”
