Cardi B is one of the biggest celebs at the moment, and she doesn’t seem to be slowing down even after becoming a mama. Not to mention it looked like she was super fit again so quickly after being pregnant. At the time of this article, Cardi is only 26. Once she became a star, the girl wasted no time perfecting her appearance, and she’s shameless about getting work done to her butt. It’s no secret that Cardio’s gotten cosmetic surgery and made some changes, but that’s because she’s continuously open about it.
However, despite all of this in recent news, she publicly stated that she was done with plastic surgery for good. So what triggered this change of heart.
Falling a few weeks of health scares as well as some canceled shows Cardi B told Twitter that she wasn’t getting work done again. As I said, Cardi has always been honest about any work she’s had done and doesn’t try to hide it from her fans. This time was no different, and she was open about some surgery she got post-pregnancy.
What was different this time though, is that Cardi faced some complications from not following her doctor’s orders and resting. She also received plenty of backlash from fans and supposedly lost millions because of show cancellations.
We are going to focus mainly on Cardi beast transformation post-baby and recent changes that she’s made.
Before and after, the transformation of Cardi B
So just before we talk about Cardi’s recent surgeries, I’ll quickly recap the work that she had done before the baby was born as we all know Cardi’s career before she was a rapper was none other than a stripper.
But pretty sure this is one of the things that make up the Cardi B who we all know and love. Anyways Cardi spoke about being a stripper and how it affected her self-esteem because way back when she didn’t have boobs or a butt.
Looking at all pics, you can see just how different she looked. Cardi got breast implants first during her time dancing, and she also got her butt done. In fact, Cardi was so open with her fans that she talks about how at the age of only twenty-one, she got illegal butt injections in someone’s basement for 800 bucks.
Finally, Cardi got veneers on her teeth, which gave her a perfect smile she has today. That pretty much sums up what worked Cardi got before becoming a mom. But this updated before-and-after is about the more recent stuff.
So what about all of that after having her baby last year in 2018. Cardi was just being herself and got real about the changes that happen to her boobs. She posted on Instagram, saying how, after giving birth to her daughter, her boobs are now hanging low and noted that at the end of the year, she plans to get a titty renovation.
Has she done liposuction?
While Cardi is a woman of her word because she not only got her boobs done but she also decided to get liposuction. She spoke to her second breast augmentation in an interview with Entertainment Tonight saying
“I just got my boobs redone. I feel good, but then sometimes I feel like not. You know? When your skin is stretched out”
Her lipo seemed noticeable when she showed off her abs in April on Instagram. Her stomach was looking flattered and fitter than ever.
Before this, Cardi still looks fit, but for months she denied that she got lipo. However, she ended up coming clean about it due to the complications that came along with the recovery process. She also didn’t feel good lying to her fans. Cardi had to cancel some of her concerts because of side effects from her lipo procedure. Doctor’s orders for that she needed more rest, and she shouldn’t be performing, but she didn’t precisely follow sue.
Cardi said that lipo was not an instant fix, and it takes a while to heal.
Like when you see somebody that had lipo you think that they just go into the doctors and like Boop, you come out and you look amazing, and it’s actually like a very long process, recovery. It actually takes a little bit more than three or four months.
Of course, the canceled shows upset fans, and Cardi apparently lost out on a lot of money. But after publicly showing the swelling, she got as a side effect of both the lipo and recent boob job. It looked noticeably painful.
Complications after plastic surgery
Sharing a photo of her extremely swollen ankles, Cardi said that this swelling also happens to her stomach and the rest of her body, and it’s uncomfortable as hell. She also tweeted it as proved to her fans.
After surgeries like a boob job and her lipo recovery is super important. There are periods of swelling afterward, and supposedly, the second period of swelling can last for months. Flying can make this swelling extreme, just like what seemed to be the case with Cardi’s ankles.
Cardi got a lot of backlash for this whole situation, including people making comments as she should just exercise and naturally get back into shape rather than going for surgery.
As usual, Cardi wasted no time clapping back and explained that she’s a performer, who’s constantly on the go and doesn’t have the same time as others to exercise, which does make a lot of sense.
From not getting enough rest post-op, her body didn’t have efficient time to recover. Cardi explained on Instagram why she didn’t want to cancel shows stating
“You know I hate canceling shows because I love money I’m a money addict and I get paid a lot of money. A lot of money for these shows… like I’m canceling millions of dollars in shows. But like health is wealth, so I have to do what I have to do. My breasts gotta f____heal, and it is what it is”
That being said, as I mentioned earlier, Cardi claims now that she’s done with getting plastic surgery. Apparently, this whole situation scared her, and she doesn’t want the same reaction again.
Cardi said on Twitter
“I’ve been working out for the past two weeks cause b*tch I ain’t getting surgery again. But let me tell you I haven’t got a headache ever since.”
So I guess the exercise is also helping to get rid of headaches that the star gets. I think we’ll see if Cardi keeps her word and stays off the plastic surgery for good.
She’s only 26 though, so who knows if she’ll change her mind down the line.
Cardi’s recent changes in style
Although Cardi has always been on point with her fashion and look, I feel like recently she’s been looking extra glam. I think that this year has been Cardi’s most stylish one yet.
After having her baby, it didn’t take Cardi long to get polished and bounce back into the spotlight at all.
She has had some great hair looks over the past few months, which are different wigs or weaves, which look amazing.
One of my favorites on her was this pastel-colored hair I think it looked super hot I wish I had that hair myself.
Cardi also rocked hot pink and bright blue color. Some other Cardi looks I loved so far this year where this all Chanel outfit and cute black bog and this pastel purple jacket with the matching hair, which is one of my fav colors.
Although she’s been looking classy and glam, she still has that same Cardio jazz before even with small touches like her tongue and lip piercings.
So it’s evident that Cardi looks great regardless of what she does with her hectic schedule as a performer it isn’t surprising that she wanted to get some work done after having her baby.
I think that if I was in her position and constantly in the spotlight, I would feel pressure to look my best as well and likely want faster results than normal.
Despite the complications from her lipo and second boob job, her body does look amazing. Although canceling some of her shows upset some people, she had a legit reason considering the awful swelling she got on her body.
Cardi says she’s completely done with plastic surgery now, but if she does try to get in the future hopefully this time she’ll listen to her doctor and take the time needed to recover.
