‘First full miracle meditation I’ve done since my surgery,’ she captioned one post. 

‘I’ve been on a cocktail of drugs for pain & I’ve only felt like sleeping. Woke up today in less pain feeling so happy.’ 

Accompanying the post was an image of her meditating on the couch with a leopard print top and black leggings.

She also uploaded another picture of herself laying in bed with her laptop. 

She said that while she is still in ‘some pain’, she is ‘doing well’. 

Rachael said that she will have to sleep in a straight and upright position for a ‘few weeks’ and wear a ‘special surgical bra’. 

‘I have to sincerely thank my surgeon [Dr Michael Miroshnikr] for being so honest and amazing throughout the whole process (& who was actually the one to pickup my rupture!),’ she wrote.

Rachael underwent a breast augmentation at the start of her modelling career when she was just 17 years old.

She announced last week that she was about to undergo explant surgery because her left implant had ruptured.

‘At [17] I made the decision to have them put in and they have been a part of me for pretty much all my adult life,’ Rachael explained in an Instagram post.

She said she’d first started having problems with her implants two years ago.

‘I woke up and noticed one was a little different to the other,’ she said.

‘I immediately went in for an MRI [and] the doctor told me I had a capsular contracture in my left breast – meaning the skin the body creates around the implant to protect itself has tightened.

‘I was told it was fine, common and nothing needed to be done urgently.’

Rachael, a mother-of-two, later sought a second opinion after experiencing pain in her left breast and other symptoms she did not associate with her implants at the time.

She was told by a specialist last week that her left implant had in fact ruptured, meaning there was a hole and its contents were leaking out.

Rachael explained that her original MRI two years ago had detected the rupture, but the results were ‘read wrong to me’.

‘I’m excited and I’m also shaking with fear because the implant has been ruptured for so long we won’t know until after the operation just how much damage has been done,’ she added.
