Cardi B has explained she admitted to having liposuction because she wanted to educate her fans on the reality of undergoing the cosmetic procedure.
The Bodak Yellow hitmaker, 26, revealed she had undergone the surgery, which is used to remove unwanted body fat, during a performance at the Beale Street Music Festival in Memphis on Sunday night (05May19). During the set, she told fans that she shouldn’t be moving around too much so soon after having the work done.
Speaking to Entertainment Tonight’s Katie Krause at the launch of the rapper’s latest Fashion Nova clothing line at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles on Wednesday, the star confessed she wanted to share her ordeal so young women considering the procedure know what it entails.
“I want to explain to people how hard it is to process. I feel like people look at girls on Instagram and go, ‘Oh, they got their lipo done and it was so easy”,’ the I Like It rapper confessed. “It is just such a long, hard process.”
The star went on to highlight the overwhelming changes that her body is going through post-surgery, and compared them to the changes she saw after giving birth to daughter Kulture, who she shares with 27-year-old husband Offset, last July (18).
“(It’s) almost like the same process as after you give birth to a baby and you see your body change and snapping it back,” she suggested.
Last week, the Please Me star also told reporters from the outlet that she had “just got her boobs redone” to give herself a confidence boost following her daughter’s birth.
