Comedian Tiffany Haddish briefly opened up about her first plastic surgery experience, but you likely won’t be able to guess what she got done.
The 39-year-old was interviewed by fellow comedian and former Saturday Night Live star Kevin Nealon for his show, Hiking with Kevin. During the chat, which involved going on a hike (hence the name), she talked about having a torn meniscus after falling on stage (she was attempting to show people what it’s like to have sex with an overweight man while on top…). She said she didn’t plan on having surgery on her knee to fix it, and when she was asked if she’d ever had surgery before, she initially said no. Tiffany quickly changed her mind and said yes, noting a simple surgery she had on the right side of her chin.
“Never! Well yes, but no,” she said. “I mean, I had plastic surgery before. On my chin I had a mole right here and they had to remove it. They said it was plastic surgery, even though there was no plastic involved. And I didn’t get put to sleep, but they cut me.”
The Night School star said she didn’t get the mole removed for cosmetic purposes, but because it was causing some very uncomfortable inflammation.
“It was meat,” she described it. “It was so many hairs in it, it made my whole chin swell up. That’s why I had to get it off.”
Tiffany has a mole under her eye and on the side of her nose still, but it’s likely that as long as they don’t give her trouble, they will stay.
As for any other plastic surgery, it doesn’t sound like something Tiffany would be interested in. As she told The Root in their “Black and Proud” series in 2017, she loves the skin she’s in.
“There’s a lot of reasons why I’m proud to be Black, but some people might not agree with them,” she said. “My booty is big enough for me. My personality is cool for me. I love the way my lips look, I love the way my eyes look, I love the way my skin feel. I love the way my skin tastes! Mm. Chocolate. She ready!”
