Cardi B showed off her brand new abs on the Billboard Awards red carpet on Wednesday night in Las Vegas. And while many of her fans liked her toned look - others online are suggesting that her new stomach is fake.

According to Vogue, "Cardi kept things simple in the hair and makeup department, letting all the attention land on her midsection. She arrived in a yellow two-piece Moschino ensemble and, with her waist-grazing lengths."

But, some are accusing Cardi of getting a new surgical procedure called "abdominal etching". In that procedure, a surgeon liposuctions the stomach and leaves a few fat deposits, so that the patient appears to have a six pack.

The new procedure, which could be considered an alternative to traditional liposuction, is explained in a new paper published in the journal Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, and it describes how surgeons have made it possible to reshape belly fat into a much more eye-catching midsection. 

Surgeons utilize “meticulous liposuction technique” to sculpt the fatty areas into the shape of abs.

Cardi’s no stranger to plastic surgery. She's publicly admitted to having butt implants and she admitted to having her breasts redone after Kulture was born. And while Cardi denied having lipo three months after Kulture was born, she never disclosed whether she subsequently had the procedure.
