While facial reconstruction surgery in Los Angeles is quite a common procedure these days, many of our patients wish to remain anonymous because they think their peers will judge them if they find out they went under the knife.
While it shouldn’t be seen as any different from dying one’s hair or getting a tattoo, many feel the need to hide the fact that they’ve had work done. This certainly isn’t helped by celebrities like the Kardashians who repeatedly deny that they’ve had work done despite obvious discrepancies in their appearances.
One celebrity who has been very candid about her cosmetic procedures is rapper Iggy Azalea, whose appearance has shifted over the years. The Australian rapper found fame in 2014 when her song “Fancy” became a viral sensation, partially due to the Clueless themed music video. In this music video, the singer has a flat chest and wider septum, both of which she got changed since she had more than enough money to pay for the surgery.
“I did change something: Four months ago, I got bigger boobs! I’d thought about it my entire life,” Azalea said in an interview. She added that her smaller chest made her wardrobe department pad her stage costumes and that she wanted to actually have the bigger chest she was trying to emulate.
Like many people, Azalea did not want to be open about her surgery.
“But then, I decided I wasn’t into secret-keeping,” she said as she explained why she wanted to be honest with her fans.
Also in 2015, she told Seventeen Magazine that she underwent rhinoplasty to give herself a slimmer nose.
“I’m not denying it. Denying it is lame,” she said. “I don’t think you should be ashamed if you made a change to yourself, which is why I’ve spoken about the changes I’ve made.”
Plastic surgery shaming is a deterrent for many, but these same people tell us how overjoyed they are with their new looks and how they wish they had done it sooner. Azalea seems to be in the same boat about her breast implants.
