Lil Kim started modeling for many renowned brands like M.A.C., Old Navy. Kim also had a different sense of style, and she started being noticed for her bold clothing.
But even after being so famous, Kim wasn’t still happy, and she had problems about how she looked since the beginning of her career and is said to have gone under the knife linking her with many cosmetic procedure rumors.
Before and After Pictures
Lil Kim’s looks have changed over the past few years, and when we compare her before and after images, it is almost impossible to recognize her now.
In an interview in 2005, Lil Kim admitted to getting a nose job done, but those were not the only changes that people noticed, and Lil Kim is believed to have gone through many other reconstructive procedures as well. So let’s find out what other surgeries Lil Kim has done.
Did Lil Kim get a nose job?
Lil Kim getting a Rhinoplasty or nose job done is not a rumor, as the star herself admitted on an interview of going under the knife. Lil Kim also explained why she got a nose job done.
She had a toxic, abusive relationship with her ex-boyfriend, where she was physically abused many times, leaving her with black eyes or a broken nose. Lil Kim admitted to fixing her nose not once but several times.
Did Kim have a skin bleaching treatment?
When Lil Kim posted a new photo on her Instagram account, many fans were shocked by her new look. Lil Kim did not look like her previous self anymore, and she now had lighter skin showing signs of using chemicals and creams to get fairer skin results. You can also see the difference between all her before after images over the years or youtube videos.
Did she get an eyes surgery?
Even though she denied going under the knife many times except for getting a nose job done, Lil Kim hasn’t convinced many of her fans or media yet because her new pictures on Instagram have many people questioning her new look.
Lil Kim now has eyes that look entirely different; the shape of her eyes changed from how they initially used to be. Her eyes now had a sharper long look, and even her eye bags seemed more firmed.
Besides her fans, some cosmetic surgeons have also talked about Lil Kim’s new look and doubt her claims of not getting anything done on her face.
How about her jawline?
Experts say that she might’ve used Botox injections in her jaw to define her jawline even more, and also, her cheeks seem to be more prominent, which is usually achieved using filler or cheek implants.
Lil Kim is also speculated to have gotten lip augmentation and chin implants due to her face’s change in shape and appearance. But we can’t say every cosmetic procedure rumor is true because, like other celebrities, Lil Kim is also accused of using filters in her photos.
In her recently uploaded images, she had a drastic change in her look and was seen with no ear in her pictures, confirming that she uses photoshopping techniques.
Jennifer Levine, a board-certified cosmetic surgeon, had her own opinions saying Lil Kim might’ve gone under the knife and even got some skin bleaching treatments done. Levine speculated that Lil Kim went through a skin lighting treatment using methods that included high doses of acids.
Experts say that Lil Kim’s new look, which includes Rhinoplasty, skin bleaching, cheek filler or implants, lip augmentations and chin implants, might’ve cost her about $20,000 to $25,000.
