SZA recently confirmed that she has undergone plastic surgery. In an interview with Elle Magazine, SZA opened up about having work done on her butt, loving her body and the reason behind her decision. The singer also dug deep into the complexities of handling fame and dealing with public perception.

“Everybody else has feelings and fears. Why wouldn’t I be scared to be famous?,” she questioned int he Elle interview. “Would you be scared to be famous? Because I’m famous, I’m not allowed to be scared? I wasn’t born famous.”


Fans of SZA recently started noticing the clear change in her physical appearance. The “Kill Bill” singer finally provided a response to the speculations in the intro of her album “SOS.” In a gritty, rap-sing, SZA hinted that she got a Brazilian butt lift.

‘“It look natural / It’s not,” she states, seemingly setting the record somewhat straight.

In her Elle interview, SZA says she considers her butt her favorite accessory. She insists that the decision to get a BBL was solely hers. She maintains that it wasn’t influenced by industry pressure in any way. Rather, she says, she wanted the results she has now with less gym time.

“I succumbed to my own eyes in the mirror and being like, No, I need some more…,” the 33-year-old revealed. This is the first time SZA is speaking about the cosmetic surgery she underwent.

A Fading Trend

SZA’s confirmation comes as some celebrities, famous for their cosmetic surgery procedures, have been reversing the work. Earlier this year, on Instagram, Blac Chyna documented the processes of reducing her breasts and buttocks. She also dissolved the fillers in her face.

K. Michelle and Cardi B are other celebrities who have been transparent about reversing their previous cosmetic changes. The reversal trend, while hard to pin on any specific reason, has often been chalked up to health concerns. Others have speculated that a body positivity movement has also contributed to the apparent decline in body enhancements.

Studies have found BBLs lead to serious health risks, including death. In a 2017 report, the Aesthetic Surgery Education and Research Foundation in Aesthetic Surgery Journal found that one to two out of every 6,000 BBLs resulted in death, the highest mortality rate for any cosmetic surgery.
