Cardi B has not been shy by any means about her plastic surgery past. It all started when Cardi got her boobs done during her stripper days, as she has said it helped her make more money. But now, Cardi B has officially called it quits on any plastic surgery from here on out. This decision comes after the rapper, 26, faced some serious complications with her latest procedure.
After giving birth to her daughter Kulture last year, Cardi B went under the knife and received both liposuction and breast augmentation, as she said, “Kulture did me bad.” Despite previously having plastic surgery, this time around it left her with some pretty serious complications.
Cardi’s complications include excessively swollen feet and a “puffy, burning” stomach. The rapper posted a since-deleted photo of the swollenness she experiences, showing her ankles and feet to be even bigger than her calves.
The complications could not have had worse timing, as they came smack in the middle of her tour, causing her to make the difficult decision to cancel some of her shows.
Cardi’s representative spoke on her behalf saying, “Cardi was overzealous in getting back to work; she didn’t take the time necessary to fully recover from her surgery. Her strenuous schedule has taken a toll on her body and she has been given strict doctor’s orders to pull out of the rest of her performances in May.”
Cardi also delivered a controversial message to fans as to why she was upset about having to cancel the shows saying, “I hate canceling shows because I love money. I’m a money addict, and I get paid a lot of money, a lot of money for these shows. I’m canceling millions ‘f dollars in shows, but like, health is wealth so I have to do what I have to do.”
Cardi took to Twitter on Wednesday to tell of her decision to call it quits on any more plastic surgery.
I been working out for the past 2 weeks cause bitch I ain’t getting surgery again😂😂😂but let me tell you I haven’t got a headache ever since .

This decision also came after plastic surgeon, Dr. Terry Dubrow discussed his concerns with Cardi’s complications. Dr. Dubrow is famous for fixing plastic surgeries gone bad on his show, Botched, so if anyone knows a thing or two about post-op complications, it’s him.
Dr. Dubrow starts off with, “Why is she still having complications this far out? The fact that her legs are still this swollen indicates that there’s something more going on.”
He continues, “I recommend that Cardi B get seen [by her doctor] very quickly.”
Perhaps this urgent concern from Dr. Dubrow is what brought Cardi to her senses and influenced her decision to swear off any more plastic surgery. We’re hoping that Cardi follows Dr. Dubrow’s advice and gets everything checked out by her doctor because let’s face it — we need more hits from our queen ASAP.
