Even before he made his acting debut in ABS-CBN’s Made For YouTube anthology series Love Bites last month, former That’s My Tomboy contestant Concon Felix went through a surgery that changed his life last year when he decided to have his breasts removed. He shared details of his surgery journey in a vlog last December.

“Hindi ito isang bagay na pag-iisipan mo lang overnight. Isang bagay ito na pag-iisipan mo buong buhay mo,” he shared.

Last seen as a That’s My Tomboy grand finalist in 2020, Concon (real name Gracelle Felix) also shared his reasons for going under the knife last December.

“Una sa lahat, gusto ko talaga ito. Matagal ko siyang pinag-isipan and gustong gusto ko talaga. Gusto ko mawala yung boobs ko. Yun yung pinaka una kong rason and ayokong magpaka-plastic sa inyo kasi yun nga talaga yung gusto ko.

“Second is lagi kong iniipit yung boobs ko and ayoko dumating sa point na magkaroon ng bukol. Kasi may mga kilala ako na may bukol na yung boobs nila kakaipit ng boobs nila. And worse, nagkakaroon pa ng breast cancer. So ayokong mangyari yun.

“Third is body dysphoria. Hindi ako masaya na meron nito. I think ito yung nag-ho-hold back sa akin. Wala akong self-confidence. Iba yung feeling kapag may body dysphoria ka eh. And the fourth one is yung trauma. Ayoko na i-explain sa inyo kung bakit ako merong trauma sa boobs pero siguro yung iba sa inyo alam na yan.

“The fifth one is yung posture ko. Hindi okay yung posture ko kung mapapansin niyo sa mga videos ko dahil lagi kong iniipit yung boobs ko, Hindi ako comfy. And after ng surgery ko, kapag magaling na ako, ang next na gagawin ko is chiro(practor),” he shared in his vlog.

In his Instagram post which he titled “dede reveal?”, Concon shared with his followers his thoughts after surgery.

“oh ayan. nagpatanggal na ko ng boobs. naka-blur para di naman mas malaswa tingnan  

pero ayun nga balik tayo sa ‘dede reveal’

“ayan lagi ko nababasa sa mga comments sa tiktok and posts ko. di naman ako nahu-hurt lalo na pag babae ang nagco-comment, nire-replyan ko na lang ng ‘ikaw muna tapos ako rin’ tapos di na sila magre-reply. hahahaha

“gusto ko lang malaman niyo na MASAYA AKO para sa sarili ko lalo na ngayon natanggal na yung boobs ko. isa nanaman sa mga pangarap ko ang natupad! AH BASTA MASAYA AKOOO!!!  

“Pina-biopsy ko yung tinanggal na breast ko. may mga bukol na daw and kung may history family ko ng breast cancer, may possibility na magkaroon ako buti nalang at natanggal agad. Buti nalang at pina-biopsy ko after the operation.

“Yung reason is kakaipit ng boobs ko para lang maitago!  ”

In the same post, Concon also reminded his followers to refrain from bashing people going through the same thing as him and to just live happily without hurting others.

“Tigilan nyo na kaka-bash sa mga kagaya ko kasi di naman nakakatulong yan sa inyo. focus na lang kayo sa mga sarili niyo at sa mga taong nakapaligid sa inyo dahil ‘ang mundo ay isang malaking Quiapo.’ di niyo alam kung sino ang pwedeng mawala sa inyo! enjoyin nyo lang! simula 2020 minulat tayo ng pandemic na yan, andaming nawala ng biglaan. kaya kung ako sa inyo, cherish every moment with your loved ones. kahit gaano karaming kayamanan pa yan, di natin alam hanggang kailan tayo dito sa mundong 'to. kaya piliin mo palagi maging MASAYA basta alam mong wala kang natatapakang iba.  

“Ayan. Flat chested na ko. WALA NA KO ITATAGO SAINYOOOO!!! I'M FREEEE AF!

“Thank you, Papa God! The best ka.”
