Going under the knife is common nowadays but that doesn’t mean it has widely departed from being a taboo, so much so that some people are afraid to admit that they had undergone a procedure.
Those who come out to talk about their plastic surgery are praised for being brave and at the same time bashed. One of those who didn’t care about the harsh comments is Belcalis Almanzar, popularly known as Cardi B, a woman who has been known for her no-holds-barred attitude.
Cardi B’s Admission
In terms of the surgeries she had done, the rapper initially wasn’t honest about them, even denying some reports.
But Cardi decided to tell the truth at the Beale Street Musical Festival on May 5, telling the crowd that she wasn’t supposed to perform at the event because it’s going to affect her liposuction. In an interview, the 26-year-old revealed that she had to bring the cat out of the bag because she didn’t like lying.
Upon her admission, Cardi only had good words about the procedure and even explained to people the slow and long process before you will be able to see results.
Although she explained that it sometimes gets frustrating, she said she was enjoying the journey. Weeks after, the mom of Kulture had to cancel concerts and appearances following strict orders from her doctors, which was confirmed by her representative.
Weeks later, Cardi took to her social media account to give her fans an update, but boy it wasn’t the news the public had expected. She uploaded a photo of her feet, and it is safe to say that the pair had seen better days. The image showed how swollen her feet were and the “Bodak Yellow” rapper explained that this happens whenever she goes on a flight.
According to plastic surgeon Michele Shermak, swelling is a common side effect of going under the knife. But why did her feet take the blow when these are far from the sites of the procedures?
This is because it is gravitational so the feet get the most swelling. The solution to this, the expert said, is to rest, elevate the feet, put ice on it, and avoid consuming sodium.
No More Surgery
Although the doctor said swelling is a normal side effect of the surgery, it might have been enough for Cardi to consider her plastic surgeries to be the last. In a tweet, the artist said she won’t be having another surgery again.
Plus, she has been working out in the past two weeks and had since noted that she didn’t have a headache.
Cardi first hinted that she was thinking of resorting to liposuction in August last year after giving birth to her bundle of joy with Offset. She said that she used to have a tight stomach and now felt she had love handles.
