Kandi Burruss is getting candid about plastic surgery following her recent breast reduction surgery.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta star took to her YouTube channel this week to discuss having work done while urging others to be open and honest about any cosmetic procedures they’ve had.
“With there being so much conversation about bodywork, and who’s gotten what, and [who] didn’t get what done, I figured it’s time for me to speak on it,” she began in the video.
“Let’s be real with the people,” she continued. “Let’s talk to the people who are out there being fans of us, and fans of all these celebrities, let them know the real [truth].”
Kandi then shared what she’s done to physically change her body over the last few years.
“As for myself, I think I’ve tried a couple different things as far as physically changing my body. I have done Lipo before, gotten boobs, got a boob reduction, and got another boob reduction,” she revealed. “I’ve done a tummy tuck. And as far as facial things, I don’t do anything to my face really, but I have tried Botox, which is still relevant to this conversation.”
The Xscape singer also dished about the many diets she’s tried. She noted that she has lost a “couple of pounds” before discussing her recent breast reduction.
“[The weight loss] has nothing to do with why my boobs are smaller, okay,” she proclaimed in the video. “I went to a doctor and he cut a chunk off of each one of them. I just wanna keep it 100 with you.”
As for why she chose to publicly address the cosmetic work she’s had done, it seems she had a ton of questions prior to her latest procedure, so she figured she could help others who may be considering plastic surgery.
“I started thinking about this because I guess it’s been six, close to six weeks now, it’s been five and a half weeks, I decided to get my breasts reduced,” she said. “And for me, it was a whole thing of who I was gonna go to to reduce my breasts. Was I gonna go out of town and do it? Was I gonna stay in Atlanta and do it? Was I gonna go to a doctor that was close to Atlanta and do it? Trying to find the time to do it…”
She added, “And while I was doing my research I was just like, so many people are doing work, so many people are doing things but nobody ever wants to talk about it. So I’m going to talk about it!”
And earlier today, Kandi showed off her new body as she shared a date night photo with her husband Todd Tucker.
Not only did Kandi get candid about the changes she’s made to her body, but she actually took it a step further by inviting the audience into the operating room during her breast reduction. Though the actual procedure wasn’t filmed, fans can view the star’s pre-op experience as a portion of that has been reshared by The Jasmine Brand on Instagram.
