Real Housewife of Atlanta NeNe Leakes is apparently the latest reality star to fall victim to a plastic surgery obsession.
42-year old NeNe Leakes, who is currently a cast member on The Celebrity Apprentice, surprises fans when she had a rhinoplasty (See Make Me Heal’s story on NeNe Leakes’ nose job) as well as her breast implants lifted and replaced with a smaller size, as well as waist contouring liposuction.
Now, the celebrity gossip mill says that NeNe is now hooked on plastic surgery and preparing to go under the knife again, this time for liposuction in order to get a flat stomach.
A source to Radar Online is quoted saying, “NeNe is determined to have a flatter tummy, and she intends to have more liposuction done so she looks her very best this summer.”
Friends of the reality diva are worried for her, according to the source. “Her friends are worried that she has become too obsessed with plastic surgery and have warned her about the dangers, but she just wants to be the best image of herself that she can be. She intends to have the procedure done sooner rather than later.”
The source also added, “The truth is that despite being loud and overconfident in public, NeNe has some issues regarding her self-image. She has always wanted to be famous, and now that she is those insecurities have been heightened for her to look perfect.”
On his blog, plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn writes, “So when has a person had too much plastic surgery? The line can be blurry. One rule that I try to follow is: When you have plastic surgery to look different, but not necessarily better, then you are going too far.”
NeNe has reportedly lost 15 pounds with diet and exercise and also gotten dental veneers. Only time will tell if she goes for plastic surgery again.
