Lil Kim fixed her face, and her complexion - and now she looks great again.

For years, female rapper Lil Kim was the butt of many jokes. In the 1990s and 2000s, Kim got multiple bad plastic surgeries, and lightened her skin dramatically - so she looked bizarre.

But in recent months, Kim worked hard to reverse all the bad that she did to herself.

According to people close to Kim, she had "subtle" surgery on her face to reverse botched procedures. 

And the beautiful rapper is no longer lightening her skin, so it has reverted to its natural color.

The result is nothing short of amazing.

Lil Kim looked great yesterday in Los Angeles.She stood out in true Queen B fashion, as she wore an outfit covered in sparkles, while out and about at the popular eatery The Nice Guy.

In a 2005 interview, the hip-hop star (real name: Kimberly Denise Jones) told Angie Martinez that she went under the knife after an abusive ex-boyfriend broke her nose. But the biggest differences, according to doctors, are “to her jawline. She could have had Botox injections under the jaw for a more chiseled look,“ she tells Us. "And in case it's not obvious, Kim probably had filler injected into her cheeks.”
