R&B sensation K. Michelle is opening up about the music industry and how it has impacted her self-esteem.

During a recent episode of Stepping Into The Shade Room, hosted by Thembi, the former reality star admitted that she went under the knife 13 times in one year to change her face and body.

“My teeth looked like I was chewing rocks before I got in the industry, and I was okay with them little bitty-a*s teeth,” K. Michelle said. “And when I got in, I needed this, I needed titties. … I didn’t know that certain things were needed and expected until the industry.”

She continued: “I [had plastic surgery] because I seen other people in the industry, and I thought that that was the way. … I had thirteen surgeries in one year. For an a*s. You did all this — you almost lost your life over an a*s. So I said I was gonna say something.”

She further addressed complications she faced while going through some of the surgeries. “It’s not a cool thing to play with. Women have died because they want their body. They want this and that.”

Regarding the industry’s standards and expectations, she acknowledged that her self-confidence “absolutely” deteriorated after becoming an artist, adding that she still grapples with whether she can undergo “reconstruction” procedures due to anesthesia risks.

“I just can’t see myself getting put back under like that. So I have to deal with every day, ‘Do you wanna finish up your surgery? Are you gonna be scared to go to sleep? Because people don’t wake back up from that.’ Every day I deal with that.”

In January, Shine My Crown reported about one of many celebrities who have spoken up about plastic surgery regrets. One of them was singer and social media influencer Queen Naija.

“I’m scared to say this,” she said during an interview. “I didn’t think it was going to do that much. I should’ve just gotten like the tummy tuck and some shots.”

Commenters began to weigh in on the controversial yet popular Brazilian butt lift procedure, with some stating that BBLs are becoming a fading trend that is slowly becoming a thing of the past.

“They told her not to…it’s starting to go out of style now,” one commenter wrote.

“I feel so bad for insecure women in this generation. Know your worth and love the skin you’re in. Nothing will make you perfect,” wrote another.

The Michigan native weighed in in the comment section as well stating, “I hated my hip dips & c-section belly. So I got surgery. Now I dislike how all my weight gain goes to my booty and hips. Either way, I disliked something. Can’t be perfect y’all. I would get it reduced but the risk of getting put to sleep again is scary.”

BBLs have grown increasingly widespread over the recent years but have been condemned for its hazardous side effects and have been linked to several deaths.

The Aesthetic Surgery Education and Research Foundation in Aesthetic recently revealed that two out of every 6,000 BBLs lead to death. Three percent of the 692 surgeons surveyed confessed that their patient had died during the controversial BBL procedure.
