CRYSTAL Hefner revealed she lost half the blood in her body and almost DIED from plastic surgery in October.
The 34-year-old shared the scary experience in an Instagram post on Wednesday.
The model shared a snap of herself sporting bandages that covered her breasts.
Alongside the snap, she explained that she "had a fat transfer surgery October 16 and almost didn’t make it through."
Crystal wrote: "I lost half the blood in my body and ended up in the hospital needing a blood transfusion.
"I’ve been slowly eating my way back to health since then and I am now finally feeling ok."
She continued: "I advocate for being natural since I got very ill and removed my implants and everything else toxic in my body in 2016.
"I should have learned my lesson the first time but I guess the universe keeps sending you the same lesson until you learn it."
After she said that "our culture" is defined by "beauty" and that women are "overly sexualized," Crystal wrote: "I know from the worst kind of experience.
"For ten years my value was based on how good my physical body looked. I was rewarded and made a living based on my outer appearance. "To this day I need to write reminders of why I’m worthy that have nothing to do with my physical appearance to convince myself that I’m enough."
Hugh Hefner's widow added: "I feel sorry for the next generation looking up to people whose looks aren’t even attainable without lots of filters, makeup, or money and women need to stop feeding into it."
The caption concluded: "This is a huge slap on my own wrist for caving into this pressure, even now in my 30’s – as I thought I would have learned my lesson by now."
The former Playboy Playmate was married to Hugh from 2012 until his death in 2017 at the age of 91.
Crystal previously revealed that her breast implants "slowly poisoned" her in a 2016 Facebook post.
After explaining that she experienced symptoms including "intolerance to foods and beverages, unexplained back pain, constant neck and shoulder pain, cognitive dysfunction (brain fog, memory loss), stunted hair growth" and more, she shared that she had been diagnosed with Lyme disease.
Crystal wrote: "After I was diagnosed with Lyme disease and toxic mold, I posted about it on social media. I began to receive comments saying that my symptoms resembled 'Breast Implant Illness.'
"I found a Breast Implant Illness website and Facebook group with almost 3,000 members. My symptoms matched theirs."
The model explained that implants "break down and wreak havoc on your body. The shell on silicone and saline implants is comprised of silicone and over 40 other toxic chemicals: tin, zinc, cadmium, mercury, arsenic, formaldehyde and talc to name a few. Your immune system is constantly fighting them, leaving you vulnerable to other illnesses."
After sharing that she had her implants removed, Crystal concluded the post by encouraging her fans to let those in a similar situation "know that Implant Illness is real and could be the problem."
