Teen Mom's Farrah: Why I Got a Breast Augmentation

Teen Mom's Farrah: Why I Got a Breast Augmentation

When Farrah Abraham returned to MTV for Teen Mom's third season Tuesday, fans noticed her daughter Sophia wasn't the only one who did some growing.

The 20-year-old single mom -- who debuted a series of racy pinup calendar modeling shots earlier this year  -- increased her bust from an A to a C cup earlier this year, and let Teen Mom cameras capture her surgery and recovery.

Her decision to go ahead with the surgery was a long time coming for Abraham, who gave birth to her daughter in February 2009. "I thought I lost 'boobage' from having a baby," the reality star told Us during a visit to our New York City offices June 27.

The aspiring model looks forward to sharing her surgical journey with Teen Mom fans. "You'll see the pain I went through and the sacrifices I had to make so I could make [the surgery] possible in between school and taking care of Sophia. It was a challenging time, [but] it's helped my confidence and [made me] feel more like a woman."
