Teddi is open about her cosmetic surgeries past. She has admitted to following procedures.
The reality star Teddi revealed that she had a neck lift after joining The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She announced the news via Instagram story, stating:
“There’s one thing that I’ve never been able to get rid of and it can seem ridiculous to you, but I’ve been constantly bothered by the loose skin on my neck.”
Also, the mother of Four (daughter Slate and Dove, and son Cruz with husband Edwin Arroyave and step-daughter, Isabella Arroyave) posted a picture on her Instagram account six weeks after the surgery with Sarmela Sunder.
I always want to be as transparent as possible here on the gram: the genetic placement of my hyoid bone (underneath chin) has been an insecurity of mine since I was a teen. So while you see me embrace my cellulite on my legs I also embrace that fact that the loose skin/anatomy of my side profile has consistently bothered me. And so I chose at 40 to do this because I wanted to!
A neck lift is a surgical procedure that improves the signs of aging in the jawline and neck.
According to 2018 statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the average cost of a neck lift is $5,242.

In an Instagram post, she captioned the photo-
“I went to a plastic surgeon’s office and asked for a tummy tuck. She looked me dead in the eye and said no. She explained that even though I was working out hard, if I didn’t change the way I was eating, I would never see the results I wanted.”
“I left her office mad, but it wasn’t long after that I finally said it’s time for me to @goallinbyteddi and changed my life. That’s when I realized I can’t look at my health as summer is coming and I have to fit into that bathing suit; I need a full lifestyle change. I have now maintained this lifestyle change for 3.5 years. And have turned changing my life into changing others which continues to hold me accountable to my health and fitness goals.”
Similarly, the Next Level alum mentioned, her exercise and healthy diet helps her loose weight and she is grateful for that.
“I wake up grateful every day that I have created a business that gives me so much happiness and has taught me the power of how when helping others, you can continue fighting for yourself. Remember, this is a lifestyle change not a diet.”

“I don’t regret getting my br**st implants. I was in a really good place in my life when I decided to get them.” Also she jokingly mentioned, “I like them. I think they are appropriate. They are polite implants.”
The procedure is to increase the size of b**bs using implants or fat transfer.
