Crystal Harris got something off her chest last week.

Actually, she got two somethings off her chest last week.

As previously reported, the wife of Hugh Hefner recently took a step rarely seen in the world of Playboy, actually getting the size of her breasts reduced via plastic surgery.

Harris penned a message on Facebook titled "My Implants Slowly Poisoned Me" as a way to explain why she took this step.

While the fake boobs may have made Harris more attractive to men, they were causing serious health problems for the centerfold.

"Intolerance to foods and beverages, unexplained back pain, constant neck and shoulder pain, cognitive dysfunction (brain fog, memory loss), stunted hair growth," Crystal wrote.

Combine these issues with "incapacitating fatigue, burning bladder pain, low immunity, recurring infections and problems with my thyroid and adrenals" and Harris had no choice but to go under the knife again.

So the woman who exchanged vows with the Playboy founder on New Year's Eve in 2012 shared the following post-surgery photo of herself from the July 15 procedure.

She wrote that she felt better afterward, but knew she wouldn't feel "100% overnight."

That may still be the case, but Harris is clearly very happy with how things have turned out.

"The new me. Happier and healthier," Harris wrote as a caption to the following bikini photo on Instagram yesterday.

She added:

"Using 2016 to reclaim my health and embrace and love myself for the real me. Thank you for the overwhelming support on my post yesterday, I love you."

You still look great, Crystal.

But that's not even what matters here, of course.

What matters is that Harris made a responsible decision that placed her health above her outward appearance. Gotta admire her for that, don't you?

And it's not as if she's alone in choosing this path...
