In December 2022, Cardi B spoke openly about the painful process of removing her biopolymers, which are gel-like implants that can be injected into the buttocks for a plumper appearance.
“All I’m going to say is that if you’re young, if you’re 19, 20, 21, and sometimes you’re too skinny, and you be like ‘OMG I don’t have enough fat to put in my a–’ so you result to a– shots, b—— don’t f—–g do it,” the 30-year-old told GQ during an interview.
“I am super super super super against motherf—–g a– shots,” Cardi added. “I’m super against biopolymers.”
Cardi said that the recovery process was a huge pain in the ass, literally.
“It was the craziest pain ever,” the “WAP” rapper added. “I felt like I was gonna pass out. I felt a little dizzy. And it leaks for like five days.”
The hip-hop star also cautioned fans to stay away from the infamous BBL.
“When it comes to BBLs, if y’all want advice from me, before you get your BBL done you have to make sure your blood levels are all right,” she suggested. “If a doctor says your blood levels are too low or you have diabetes or whatever, don’t do it.”
BBLs are one of the riskiest cosmetic procedures, due to the high risk of fatality. According to a July 2017 report by the Aesthetic Surgery Education and Research Foundation in Aesthetic Surgery Journal, two out of every 6,000 BBLs result in death.
