Maci Bookout really wants you to check her out.
And then the Teen Mom OG star wants you to check out a pair of organizations that are close to her heart.
On Monday, the veteran MTV personality posted a pair of sort of revealing photos of herself.
As you can see above and below, Bookout is showing a little bit of skin and she’s standing alongside a pool — and she’s encouraging her 4.2 million followers to ogle away.
And then to take action.
"25% OFF @ttmlifestyle PCOS and Breast Cancer Awareness Collections today!" wrote Maci to open a caption to these snapshots.
Indeed, Bookout is trying to draw attention to herself here… in order to then divert that attention to breast cancer awareness and also to awareness of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, a condition from which Maci suffers.
Added Maci in her message yesterday:

For the record:
Polycystic ovary syndrome is a disorder involving infrequent, irregular or prolonged menstrual periods, and often excess male hormone (androgen) levels.
The ovaries develop numerous small collections of fluid — called follicles — and may fail to regularly release eggs.
In 2018, Bookout opened up on the condition, even revealing she felt bad about the impact the mood swings were having on children Bentley, Jayde, and Maverick.
“Sometimes I’m like if I didn’t have PCOS, then maybe I wouldn’t have been so irritable with my children today,” she said at that time.
Bookout, meanwhile, shared these images amid a different kind of speculation over her appearance.
In short, a bunch of social media users out there think Maci has undergone plastic surgery.
Plastic Surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn — who has NOT treated the Teen Mom star — recently told The Sun that while it’s “not super obvious,” it is “definitely possible she’s had some work done.”
Explains this physician, who probably shouldn’t comment in public about someone who isn’t his patient:
“I suspect that she may have undergone injections of filler to her lips, subtly plumping them up.
“She also may have undergone injections of filler into her cheeks, giving her a more sculpted appearance.
“She also could have had a rhinoplasty [nose job], refining her nose and making it look more elegant.”
To be clear, we can’t say for certain that Maci has undergone plastic surgery.
Neither can the aforementioned doctor.
But, hey, if looking closely at her photos in order to figure it out means that you’ll also visit the website Bookout mentions above and therefore donate to these causes?
By all means, please do so.
