Brazillian butt lifts have gained in popularity in recent years, but rapper Cardi B has a strong message for those considering plastic surgery.
The 30-year-old mother of two is no stranger to being open and honest with her fans. This time around, she decided to be honest with her fans who she says assumed she got work done after giving birth to her 15-month-old son Wave.
“In August I got surgery and I removed 95% of my biopolymers… if you don’t know what it is, it’s a** shots. It was a really crazy process,” Cardi B explains. “All I’m going to say is that if you’re young, if you’re 19, 20, 21, and sometimes you’re too skinny, and you be like ‘OMG I don’t have enough fat to put in my a**,’ so you result to a** shots, DON’T!”
“When it comes to BBLs [Brazilian butt lifts], if y’all want advice from me, before you get your BBL done, you have to make sure your blood levels are all right,” she continues. “If a doctor says your blood levels are too low or you have diabetes or whatever, don’t do it.”
Cardi, who previously opened up about getting illegal silicone shots for $800 in a basement in 2014, knows all too well about getting surgery at a young age.
“Well, I’m from New York, right? And New York is a melting pot, especially where I grew up in the Bronx. I was really skinny when I was younger, and in the Bronx, it’s about being thick and having an a** so young boys would be like, ‘Look at your flat a**. You ain’t got no titties.’ And it would make me feel so ugly and undeveloped,” Cardi shared with Mariah Carey during an Interview cover story.
“When I was 18 and became a dancer, I had enough money to afford to buy boobs, so every insecurity that I felt about my breasts was gone,” she added.
Once she turned 20, the “Up” rapper shifted her focus to her butt.
“When I was 20, I went to the urban strip club, and in the urban strip clubs, you had to have a big butt. So I felt insecure about that. It took me back to high school. So I got my a** done.”
