In a recent interview with B. Scott, K. Michelle revealed that she’s seriously considering removing her butt implants. And I for one, am GLAD.
I’ve never really been a fan of butt implants. The main reason is they generally look a bit cartoonish. My second reason is a bit more heartfelt–I really hate the fact that so many women are unhappy with their bodies.
It’s true-I don’t think you’ll find a person on earth that thinks they’re 100% physically flawless-including myself. However, even with the physical features that I DO have issues with, I’m not sure it’s worth going under the knife. But then again, there are some people whose features bring them a great deal of embarrassment and pain, so in those instances, isn’t plastic surgery completely justified?
…I’m still not sure.
Maybe plastic surgery is just a really expensive band-aid for a wound that nobody can even see. According to the DailyMail, people who undergo cosmetic surgery are more likely to commit suicide, and engage in other reckless behaviors.
New research shows that behind the ‘easy glamour’ of nip’n’tuck lies a silent epidemic of disappointment, leading to a wave of suicides.
Women who undergo plastic surgery have a much higher risk of killing themselves, say experts in the journal, Current Psychiatry Reports.
Their conclusions were based on five large-scale, independent studies, which found that the suicide rate is up to three times higher in women who have had breast implants.
The toll is not only restricted to suicides — cosmetic surgery patients had a three-times higher rate of death due to self-destructive acts, such as binge-drinking, drug overdoses and reckless driving.
Psychological damage related to plastic surgery is ‘a critically neglected area’, said researchers from the International Epidemiology Institute in the U.S..

Meanwhile, another study found that in eight out of ten cosmetic surgery practices, former patients had developed post-traumatic stress.
“I just wanted it. I wanted that shape. That’s the shape that I wanted. I wanted to look like that. I think the older you get you get tired of having to hop into your jeans!”-K Michelle
“For me, I want my normal shape back. For me, and my career right now, and me doing business. Like really being on the frontline in business I don’t need to have a man looking down at my ass when I’m trying to talk numbers,” the singer told B. Scott.
