With Britney Spears sporting dramatically thinner legs than twelve weeks ago, rumors are flying again about her having gotten liposuction or some other plastic surgery. Some reports have Britney getting a liposuction, while others speculate that the beleaguered singer had a Smartlipo (laser-assisted liposucton) or Lipodissolve, which is a controversial but popular plastic surgery involving fat burning injections.
Britney has been seen in the last two weeks wearing her usual skimpy, thigh-bearing skirts, only this time her thighs appear to have lost an inch off their circumference and her calves looked a bit slimmer. The top half of her body, however, looks strangely the same. While exercise and a diet can be attributed to the weight loss, insiders are speculating that the hard partying Britney has opted for a lazy way to lose the extra meat via plastic surgery as opposed to a natural course of action. Furthermore, a small dent that was captured in a closeup photo of Britney’s thigh could be a liposuction scar.
One report mentions that on the very day that Donda West died from complications from plastic surgery, Britney Spears underwent a cosmetic makeover at the
Another rumor circling around says that Britney had Smartlipo done with Dr. John Minoli in Las Vegas while she was house hunting with her cousin Alli Sims (learn more about the revolutionary Smartlipo procedure). Ideal for treating small areas of the face, chin, neck, arms, breasts (gynecomastia), thighs, and areas of loose and flabby skin, SmartLipo melts away fat using a high powered laser. A very small cannula (tube) that is approximately 1.0-2.0 millimeters in diameter contains a laser fiber that is inserted into the skin. The cannula is moved back and forth, delivering the laser’s energy to the fat cells, causing them to rupture and easily drain away. As the laser tip comes in contact with the fat cells, the tip literally melts the fat. The laser energy also interacts with the dermis and results in collagen shrinkage – meaning it creates a desirable tightening effect on the area.
A third report rehashes an old rumor that Britney had yet another series of Lipodissolve shots, which the singer was rumored to have back in April of this year (read the full article on Britney Spear’s Lipodissolve procedure). Lipodissolve (also know as Lipolysis, Lipotherapy, Lipo-dissolve, Lipostabil, ThinJection, and Flab Jab), is a controversial procedure in which drug mixtures are injected into patients to destroy fat cells, which then leave the body along with normal waste removal (learn more about the controversial Lipodissolve procedure). Similar in concept to mesotherapy, Lipodissolve claims to remove excess fat in localized areas of the body. Fat deposits that are resistant to exercise and diet, such as the abdomen, hips, thighs, face, and back, are often the primary concerns of those patients seeking this procedure. While some patients may lose up to three inches in circumference, results vary from patient to patient. The drug mixtures used in the procedure, which have yet to be approved by the FDA, are delivered through multiple microinjections into subcutaneous fat. These injections take place over one to three treatment sessions, which are each four to six weeks apart.
Being that Britney has a long list of plastic surgeries in her past, the most recent of which has included lip injections (see full article on Britney Spears’ Lip Injections) and a previous nose job and breast augmentation, having liposuction does not seem too far of a stretch for the singer. However, from photos alone it is difficult to tell if Britney had liposuction or not since exercise alone and dieting could be attributed to the weight loss. Given Britney’s young age, such weight loss can occur with relative ease.
Some friends of Britney are supposedly saying that the singer is so pleased with the liposuction results that she is already saying “Gimme More”. One source hinted that Britney may have a breast augmentation and a lift.
“She wants her perky pre-baby boobs back.”
After seeing some photos from Make Me Heal, plastic surgeon Antony Youn could not make a definitive conclusion on the liposuction rumor.
“It’s difficult to say whether she’s had liposuction based off these photos. Either way, her legs do look a bit thinner in the after photo, and it may be the result of liposuction, but can also be related to getting in better shape and weight loss. The small dent in her buttock may be natural, or it could be a scar from liposuction surgery,“ tells Youn to Make Me Heal.
Plastic surgeon John Di Saia told Make Me Heal that while “Lipo is a hard item upon which to comment,“ he was more open minded about the possibility of liposuction for Britney Spears.
“She seems somewhat into cosmetic work as she gets regular lip injections. Statistically I’d say her possibility of having done Lipo Dissolve and/or more invasive Lipo is fairly high.“
With the jury out on whether Britney had a liposuction procedure over the last two months, we’ll have to be on the lookout for tell-tale signs of surgery, such as lipo scars, unnatural unevenness, or lumpiness on her thighs or other areas she is rumored to have lipo-ed. For now, congratulations are in order to Britney for making a small comeback with her body. If only her musical comeback could be so sweet.
