Did Cardi B get a face lift? Here's everything we know about Cardi B's surgeries.
The "Up" rapstress often addresses trolls who make digs about her appearance – whether it's her surgically enhanced body or her face without makeup.
But what surgeries has Cardi B actually had done? And how many times?
Has Cardi B had surgery?
In July 2018, Cardi B gave birth to her and Offset’s daughter, Kulture.
After giving birth to Kulture, Cardi B decided that she wanted to get back in shape as soon as possible, in order for her to get back to her tour.
In early 2019, rumours began swirling around on social media after she was pictured on the red carpet in a dress showing off her six-pack abs.
Cardi B revealed that she had gone under the knife again – getting yet another breast augmentation and liposuction in In May 2019.
The star took to Instagram and revealed that she wasn’t seeing the results that she wanted by going to the gym.
After taking a rest period, advised by her doctor, Cardi revealed that she wants to start hitting the gym properly to avoid getting more surgery.
In December 2020, Cardi B revealed a trick she used to do to look thicker, prior to having surgery.
Taking to Twitter, Cardi wrote "It’s the fact that I used to put 2 thick ass tights under my jeans in Highschool to make my ass look fatter and nobody ever clock the tea"
Cardi B before surgery
In a recent interview with singer Mariah Carey for Interview Magazine, Cardi B opened up about how she felt before getting surgery.
The star revealed she felt "ugly" before having surgery and felt "confident" after having it.
Cardi revealed that she was met with insecurities growing up in her neighborhood in The Bronx, New York.
The rapstress said women with a curvy figure were praised but Cardi was "really skinny", leading her to be insecure.
"Young boys would be like, 'Look at your flat ass. You ain’t got no titties.' And it would make me feel so ugly and undeveloped." Cardi told Mariah.
When Cardi turned 18-years-old, she began dancing, earning enough money to get surgery.
"I had enough money to afford to buy boobs, so every insecurity that I felt about my breasts was gone."
"When I was 20, I went to the urban strip club, and in the urban strip clubs, you had to have a big butt," she revealed.
"So, I felt insecure about that. It took me back to high school. So I got my ass done. And then I felt super confident."
