R&B singer Kimberly Michelle Pate — better known by her stage name K. Michelle has undergone six surgeries so far, to remove the silicone implants from her butt. But according to the singer - she still needs one final surgery to remove the last fragments of silicone.
K Michelle is proud of how far she's come. The surgeries were expensive, painful, and time consuming. But the singer says that it was worth it.
She even showed her fans what her butt looks like now - after the 6 surgeries. Here are the pics:
Here's what she used to look like:
K Michelle rose to fame after appearing on the reality "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" in 2012. Two years ago, she opened up publicly about her illegal butt implants.
K Michelle told People magazine that heard about a man in Atlanta, who offered to inject her butt and hips with silicone.
"He wasn't a doctor — it was black market, it was these 'hydrogel' injections — that's what they were being called," she told People. "When I found out my favorite rapper did it, that's when I decided, 'I'm getting it done.'"
For five years the injections posed no problems. But in 2017 K Michelle began to experience fatigue, migraines, and back and leg pain. Later, doctors found that the silicone had spread down her legs, "damaging her tissue and threatening her overall health."
Eventually she opted for surgery, to remove the silicone implants.
