Zonnique Pullins Shares Regrets Over Eye-Color Changing Surgery
Many would agree that Tameka “Tiny” Harris and daughter Zonnique Pullins were beautiful ladies to begin with, so it was no surprise that a number of fans were shocked and confused when the mother/daughter duo underwent a procedure that seemingly permanently changed their eye color from brown to bright blue.
Pullins recently talked about the procedure on social media after followers noticed a few months ago that one of her eyes were now brown and the other still greyish/blue. A commenter recently asked about Pullins’ experience sharing that she was considering undergoing a similar procedure:
“Is the eye color change worth it???”
“Thinking of going to Kenya and getting it. I have done my research but it will help if u can tell me your experience.”
Pullins shared that she actually visited Tunisia for the surgery in 2015, but recently has some regrets:
“I’ve never liked to recommend anyone to do it.”
“I can say that the experience wasn’t the best in the long-term but everyone is different.”
“My moms are fine. My eye started bothering me, the doctor told me that ‘you could possibly go blind.’”
It appears that Pullins indeed went through a reversal procedure as recent pics show her with her natural brown eye color. When she and her mother originally had the procedure, Tiny shared with ABC News that despite the criticism, she was pleased with her decision:
“They told me the procedure would be quick, like five or ten minutes in my eye. They woke me up and it was very blurry, and then it kind of just fades in. I looked in the mirror and I was like, they’re amazing. I just wanted to do something different. And I have the right to do that. It’s my body.”
I don’t know if I’d risk going blind for beauty, but let’s not be self-righteous acting like we haven’t tried some wild diets or put every product in the beauty supply in our hair for sake of switching up our look and finding what works best, particularly as teens and young adults. I’m happy to see Zonnique is choosing what works best for her as a young woman and still has her vision with hopefully no complications.
