Mari Pepin Shares 3-Month Breast Augmentation Update and Reveals If It Was Kenny’s Idea
Spilling the tea!
Bachelor Nation fans saw Mari Pepin and Kenny Braasch find love and get engaged on Season 7 of “Bachelor in Paradise.”
Since then, the two have been keeping fans updated with their lives on social media, and Mari has been sharing her breast augmentation journey with her followers.
In January, Mari got her surgery in January in Puerto Rico by Dr. Diana Avilés Castillo.
Now, she is sharing a three-month post-op update in a YouTube video where she answered a ton of fan questions.
Mari started off by revealing exactly what kind of implants she has and what size they are.
She said, “I have smooth, round, silicone breast implants. They are high profile and they are 255 CCs. CCs is the equivalent of ounces and I think it stands for cubic centimeters. It’s just essentially how big the implant is. The higher the CCs, the bigger the implant. I think the average I see as someone who’s worked in this industry for a long time is about 300 CCs to 350 CCs.”
The Bachelor Nation star went on, saying, “I definitely went on the lower end, but it all depends on what you’re starting with, what your goal is, and what you want your implants to look like afterwards. I wanted something that was definitely going to look more moderate to my body with my frame and figure. I wanted something that looked natural and like it fit my body. I didn’t want them to look super big or super unrealistic.”
Mari also shared that she went with under the muscle implants and a scar under the bust rather than around the areolas so she would be able to breastfeed at some point down the road.
One person asked Mari if getting the breast augmentation surgery was her idea or her fiancé Kenny’s idea, and Mari got candid with her answer.

She said, “What?! Do you know me? I would never change anything about myself or my body if it wasn’t my decision — especially if it was a man’s decision. Kenny would never tell me that I should or need to change my body at all. I wouldn’t be with someone like that.”
Mari continued, adding, “He was 100% supportive of this, but it was 100% my decision and something I’ve wanted to do since way before I even met him. He was not the one who told me or even suggested that I should do this. It was all me and he was just very supportive.”
And thankfully, Mari is very happy with her decision and has been healing up really well.
She said, “I am so happy with them. I have been wanting this and waiting for this for so long. It’s just in time for summer too, so I can’t wait to show them off a little bit.”
