What Plastic Surgery Has Cardi B Gotten?

Rapper Cardi B is on fire lately – her career is red-hot and she has a new daughter, Kulture, with her on-again boyfriend Offset. With a starring role in Jennifer Lopez’s upcoming film Hustlers and sold-out shows wherever she goes, it seems that Cardi B can do no wrong.

Still, even superstars are self-conscious and Cardi B is no exception. The rapper has been vocal about her recent plastic surgery, which has fans wondering exactly how many procedures she’s had, and whether or not she will get more surgery.

Cardi B was born Belcalis Marlenis Almanzar but shortened her mouthful of a name in order to make it easier to pronounce. She was raised in the South Bronx, developing the thick accent that has made her so unique. She worked a series of odd jobs as a teenager, including clerking at a deli until she was fired for being late too often.

Cardi B then turned to stripping and quickly became successful at it, making enough money to support both herself and her family.

She was also developing quite a social media presence and cultivated thousands of followers, who loved her sassy attitude. Cardi B eventually landed a role on the VH1 reality show, Love and Hip Hop: New York.

She started rapping shortly after, and it was music that really caused her career to take off. Her hit singles, “Bodak Yellow” and “I Like It” shot straight to the top of the charts, and soon, fans everywhere knew her name. 

How many surgeries has Cardi B had?

In July 2018, Cardi B gave birth to her and Offset’s daughter, Kulture. Cardi B and the Migos rapper have had a tumultuous relationship but seemed determined to work things out for the sake of their daughter. Also following the birth of her baby, Cardi B decided that she wanted to try and whip herself back into shape as quickly as possible in order to get back to her grueling tour schedule.

Earlier in 2019, rumors about plastic surgery started circulating when the rapper was spotted on the red carpet in a stomach-baring outfit that revealed six-pack abs that looked too good to be true.

Fans of Cardi B know that she’s not averse to plastic surgery, as she had previously admitted to having her breasts augmented and implants placed in her buttocks. Still, in May 2019, Cardi B revealed that she had gone under the knife again – getting yet another breast augmentation and liposuction. 

She opened up about her decision to get more surgery, claiming that she just wasn’t seeing the results that she wanted at the gym and that she wanted her body to look a specific way. She also fired back at haters, saying that “I do whatever I want with my body.”

Will Cardi B get more plastic surgery?

Unfortunately, the surgery didn’t make things easier for Cardi B – in May, she ended up postponing several concerts due to complications from liposuction. After a doctor-prescribed rest period, the rapper took to Twitter to proclaim that she’s decided to start hitting the gym even harder to try and avoid getting more surgery in the future.

She claimed that she was already feeling better with the increase in exercise and that she hadn’t had a headache ever since her workouts got more intense. 

Whether or not Cardi B decides to have more surgeries done is impossible to predict at this point – what is certain is that the rapper will continue to do things on her own terms, regardless of what the public says about it.
