How much is too much? Despite Lil’ Kim’s attempts to deny the rumors that she has “gone under the knife,” it is very apparent that both her body and facial features have undergone many drastic changes since her rise to fame in the 1990’s. Originally, she was known for both her hardcore music and her sexy and provocative wardrobe and body. However, almost 20 years later, many changes have been noticed that have done nothing but lessened her beauty.
Throughout Lil’ Kim’s 19 year career, she has been seen with many different body shapes. First, she has fluctuated weight. Lil’ Kim has been seen both slim, as she was in her earlier years, and plumper. Additionally, it has seemed that she has had both breast and butt work done. When Lil’ Kim appeared at the BET music awards in 2012, she was strutting with a butt comparable to that of Nicki Minaj. Additionally, she appeared at radio station Hot 97’s Summer Jam at MetLife Stadium earlier this year, and her body looked completely transformed. It was very apparent that her breasts were still quite large, despite having lost some weight. When women lose weight, natural breasts will decrease in size.
In addition to Lil’ Kim’s apparent body changes, her face has undergone drastic transformations. Lil’ Kim’s first apparent facial change appeared in the early 2000’s, when it became apparent that her nose had been slimmed. It was obvious to both plastic surgeons and paparazzi that she had gone under the knife. Since her first procedure, it seems that Lil’ Kim may be addicted to “improving” her body image. Looking at the facial changes, it seems that she has also chosen to have an additional nose job, cheek implants, and a brow lift. Unfortunately, rather than improving her appearance as plastic surgery should, Lil’ Kim’s original beauty has almost disappeared.
How much plastic surgery will be enough? Lil’ Kim has denied allegations that she has undergone the knife. However, the proof exists in the changes that have been seen in her body and face over the years. After at least six suspected surgeries, when will Lil’ Kim decide that she is happy with her body and face?
