“The View” co-host Sunny Hostin revealed that she went under the knife in 2022 for several procedures and said she didn’t feel any shame about it.
The 54-year-old co-host opened up to People magazine about having breast reduction surgery and lift, as well as liposuction on her waist and chin last year.
“I feel like a better version of myself,” Hostin shared after years of struggling with what she called lower back pain and body image issues. “It was a health decision and a self-care decision.”

“I thought I would feel shame, like, ‘Oh my God, I’m doing plastic surgery like all these crazy celebrities.’ But I don’t feel shame at all,” she added. “And I hope sharing my story will help more people. If they’re feeling so body-conscious, the way I was — they can do what they need to do to feel better.”
Hostin explained that she has felt self-conscious about her chest since she was a teenager and finally decided to undergo a breast reduction procedure, going from a G-cup to a C-cup.
“My waist was small, but my top was so big I would wear a minimizer bra and a sports bra or a binder all the time,” the co-host shared. “Or I would get a very large dress, and then my stylist would put clips on the back of my dress so that everything would fit.”
Hostin said the two-week healing process from her plastic surgery was anything but glamorous, admitting she hired a private nurse to help her with things like drainage tubes to prevent blood and fluid buildup.
“I was up and walking around in three days,” the co-host shared. “I was back to work in two weeks, and I was doing Pilates in two months.”
Hostin said she used to think when she saw fit celebrities on social media and thought “Oh, they must be clean eating” but said now she realizes “a lot of them are taking something, or they’re getting plastic surgery.”
Sunny is married to Emmanuel Hostin and the two share son Gabriel and daughter Paloma.
