Singer Queen Naija has openly shared her recovery journey after receiving a tummy tuck and a butt lift just a few weeks ago.

On Saturday Naija posted a new vlog update sharing that she was able to get some intimate time with her partner Clarence White after her doctor gave her the green light two weeks post-op.

“I’ve already got my groove on, if you know what I’m trying to say! After a week, the doctor said it was okay whenever I felt comfortable,” she said. “So that was when I felt comfortable, okay?”

But she was also very direct about some of the everyday actions that she took for granted before her procedure.

“I can stand up straight,” she said referring to how hard it was for her to keep good posture right after surgery.

Naija shared that she is still wearing structural garments in order to keep everything lifted up an intact. But the one thing she would like to do but has found difficult is hold her five-month old son, Legend Lorenzo White, who she shares with her partner.

“The doctor said I should wait to sit on my butt for, like, six weeks,” she said. “However, when people get a BBL they wait two weeks, and the papers also said that when I first got them. But, I guess, since my doctor told me personally I’m gonna try to do that. However, it’s really uncomfortable- I can’t really hold my baby the way I wanna hold him.”

The singer’s open admission that she changed her shape kicked up a lot of debate on social media over body standards and the shaming of women who choose to alter their physical appearance.

“Now if I would have kept it a secret, like a lot of other women who’ve had surgery.. everyone would have saying “Liar, did you get surgery, why you hiding it?” she said in response to the backlash. “Lol, I tell the truth & it’s still an issue. Hilarious. Imma take my new booty and hide in a ditch.”
