Tiny is busy promoting her family reality show, Vh1′s “The Family Hustle,” which she stars in with her rapper husband T.I. all by herself. Between answering questions about the state of her marriage, Tiny also opened up about something else that has been worrying fans: plastic surgery.
Tameka Cottle may be Tiny’s given name, but she has become better known for her nickname, likely derived from her petite size. Tiny was first introduced to the public back in 1992, when she was a part of the platinum record selling group, Xscape. Since then, Tiny has been through a lot in her personal and professional career, but her body has made some drastic physical changes over the years, which have not gone unnoticed by her fans. On such a small frame, plastic surgery is sure to be noticeable and the rumors have grown as Tiny’s fame increases.
While Tiny used to have tiny breasts, they seem to have grown considerably over the years, indicating a breast augmentation. Breast implants on a small frame tend to be obvious, but Tiny looks like she wanted her breast implants to be anything but tiny. Whether showcasing her cleavage or wearing a more covered but still fitted outfit, Tiny’s breasts take center stage.
Tiny has also been thought to have undergone a buttocks augmentation, either using fat from her own body, like Kim Kardashian, or with buttocks implants.
Until recently, Tiny had never bothered to address the plastic surgery rumors that swirl around. But in a press tour for the family reality show, Tiny admitted her various procedures to both Wendy Williams and Bossip.
Wendy Williams asked how she comes by her curves and whether or not they are natural paid for.
Tiny responded, “It’s….it’s a little of both.”
“No, they’re bought but yeah, I’ve always had a lot of boobs. After three babies, they sag,” she said.
However, Tiny did say that her nose is all natural.
In addition to having breast and buttocks augmentation, many fans think that Tiny’s face is looking different as well, not just the results of growing older over time, which has led to rumors of a nose job. While Tiny shut down the nose surgery rumors, she did discuss fillers in an interview with Bossip.
When asked if she had done any plastic surgery, Tiny admits to having some “injections in my lips. But that’s Juvederm, it goes away.”
She also went on to say that she used to think about having a nose job, but she’s reluctant because it’s like her dad’s nose and says that she has largely come to terms with her nose and accepts it.
Given that Tiny has been reluctant to admit to plastic surgery in the past, it is possible that she was inspired to come out about her various procedures because of the recent revelations of her friend and sometime co-star Shenikah Jo. In a video interview with Bossip, Shekinah Jo showed off a new body, which came courtesy of liposuction to get rid of some belly fat, which was then placed in her rear end, to boost it’s size and shape.

Kim Kardashian has revealed that her wedding to Kanye West will be at the end of May. With only months to go before the big day, Kim has been getting ready, hitting the gym and spending hours and thousands of dollars getting spa treatments while the family vacations in Thailand.
While filming the Kardashian family reality show in Iniala Beach House resort in Phuket, Thailand, Kim is said to have spent six hours a day in the private spa that comes in each villa.
“Each villa the Kardashian family stayed in at Iniala has its own spa, with six hours of treatments every day,” a hotel source told Mail Online.
Each villa costs roughly $80,000 a week and includes a private spa with treatments such as massage, facial, body treatments and nail care.
In addition to a 60-minute hand massage, 90-minute cold mask facial, lotus blossom wrap, white mud wrap, hot stone massage and deluxe manicures and pedicures, Kim apparently also indulged in an unusual Thai treatment known as butt, face and breast slapping, according to Grazia magazine via The Daily Mail.
During the treatment, a masseuse slaps over these areas of your body and claims to reduce wrinkles, tighten pores and give a more youthful complexion.
However, doctors have their doubts that the treatments work and say that any results would be only temporary.
“This slapping technique doesn’t have any scientific base,” says Dr Mica Engel at London-based non-surgical skin clinic, Waterhouse Young.
“The technique has similarities to tapotement, a technique of rhythmic tapping on the body used in Swedish massage.”
“But it’s unlikely that any long term results can be achieved from that alone.”
“Swelling and increased blood flow are normal reactions, but they do not last.”
Apparently the hotel list of spa treatments doesn’t include the questionable slapping treatment so it is uncertain where Kim tried it.
While the treatment may sound bizarre, Kim has openly admitted to trying anything in order to look her best.
“I love trying anything that makes you look and feel youthful,” Kim explained after she had a vampire facial, which was filmed for the family reality show.
More recently, an episode showed Kim visiting her plastic surgeon because she had decided that her hands look old and wanted to do something about it.
At the same time, Kim became distracted after finding out that laser treatments could help with the stretchmarks she had incurred during her pregnancy, so she undergoes laser treatments, saying, “the things you do for beauty.”
While in Thailand, Kim revealed her post baby body in a series of ever shrinking bikinis, including a skimpy thong that seemed to showcase the plastic surgery buttocks augmentation that helped the curvy fashion lover rise to fame, but that she has always denied.
Kim has recently posted on her Twitter account to deny rumors of a buttocks augmentation, writing, “I’m seeing all these nonsense tabloids claiming I have butt implants-injections. Get a life! Using pics of me 15lbs skinnier (before I had my baby) comparing to me now! I still have weight to lose. Anyone who has had a baby knows how hard it is to lose weight(especially the last bit of weight) & your body totally changes! Making fun of me pregnant & making fun of me trying to lose weight now shame on you. I’m not perfect but I will never conform to your skinny standards sorry! Not me. And BTW I’ve lost a lot so far & I’m proud of that! Don’t give young girls a complex!”none
The Human Barbie Internet sensation seemed too strange to be real, so GQ sent a reporter to investigate and interview the blonde that says she hasn’t done anything surgical to look so otherworldly other than get breast implants. But it turns out that plastic surgery weighs heavily on her mind.
“Human Barbie” Valeria Lukyanova caught the attention of the Internet when she began posting photos of herself looking more plastic than human as part of a doll craze. At first, Valeria maintained that makeup and her beliefs transformed her into a doll, not plastic surgery or digital alterations. Eventually she did admit to having plastic surgery, including breast implants and a nose job, but she is still criticized for having unrealistic expectations of how a woman should look, with a super slim waist and a full chest. Not to mention her oversized eyes and tiny nose. Her wide opened eyes are rumored to be the result of some sort of tortuous sounding eyelid trimming procedure, but Valeria has admitted to none of that. According to the GQ reporter, Valeria may use some post production touchups, but she eerily looks in person just like the strange photos she has become notorious for.
What isn’t surgical are the result of cosmetic enhancements, from creative makeup application to hair extensions. Much of how Valeria chooses to present herself comes from her dreams, from her nail designs to the moniker she prefers over her given name or her “Human Barbie” nickname. Instead, she prefers Amatue.
But it’s the things that come out of her mouth that are even more unbelievable than her appearance.
“Everyone wants a slim figure. Everyone gets breasts done. Everyone fixes up their face if it’s not ideal, you know? Everyone strives for the golden mean. It’s global now,” Valeria told GQ in the interview, not mentioning her own time under the knife.
She then went on to make some rather racist insinuations when talking about plastic surgery, saying, “For example, a Russian marries an Armenian, they have a kid, a cute girl, but she has her dad’s nose. She goes and files it down a little, and it’s all good,” she said. “Ethnicities are mixing now, so there’s degeneration, and it didn’t used to be like that.”
It seems that Valeria has been ingesting too much air and during the interview only consumed some sort of carrot juice concoction, saying that she is currently on a juice diet. Recently, the Human Barbie traveled to the States to meet Human Ken, who has admitted to having hundreds of plastic surgery procedures to change his look.
However, don’t expect any doll-like kids in Valeria’s future.
“The very idea of having children brings out this deep revulsion in me,” she said. “I’d rather die from torture because the worst thing in the world is to have a family lifestyle.”
Having kids can change a woman’s body and that may be too much for Valeria as she is devoted to keeping up her bizarre appearance.
Israeli model and plastic surgery queen Orit Fox, sometimes known as the Israeli Barbie or the “Pamela Anderson of Israel,” gained international fame when a snake bit her breast implant during a photo shoot. However, the incident has stopped Orit’s fixation with using plastic surgery to be a real life Barbie.
34-year old Orit Fox is obsessed with plastic surgery and admits that having a bad day or spotting a wrinkle sends her running to her plastic surgeon, who she has on call 24/7.
“I like beauty,” she explains. “Visually, I look like Barbie, like a doll. Men love my body. It’s like a dream, a fantasy.”
Orit first became popular when a viral video showed a snake biting her breast implant during a photo shoot and subsequent rumors suggested that the snake had died after ingesting the silicone. Now, Orit laughs off the incident and said that the snake is still alive and well.
“It was so funny and amazing,” she chortles of her Youtube superstardom. “The snake bit me on the breast and now the whole country talks about my breast!”
“There was a rumour that the silicone killed the snake,” she adds, “but he survives. It didn’t do damage. It’s like a cat scratch. It was one month I had scars from the snake.”
And despite the damage to her implant, Orit hasn’t slowed down on undergoing plastic surgery.
“I cannot stop this obsession to my beauty,” she insists. “It’s not healthy, it’s unhealthy. Four times I do surgery to my breasts. I do silicone in the face…”
“Sometimes I feel an empty spot in my face and I fill with silicone. My teeth… I ask for the most white they have.”
“I think I’m more beautiful now because I keep my beauty. It’s very important to keep my beauty.”
Orit was featured in a documentary about the time she spends under the knife and her relationship with her plastic surgeon, Dr. Klein.
“If I have a bad day, I run to Dr Klein to see if he can do me something to make me happy,” she explains. “If I feel sad, I feel ugly. It’s in my head.”
“Whenever she spot a wrinkle in the mirror, she is coming,” adds Dr Klein. “She doesn’t want wrinkles, she hate wrinkles, so we do everything so she is happy.”
Even the pain associated with many plastic surgery procedures isn’t enough to stop Orit from having work done. She views herself as a human Ferrari, who needs constant maintenance and upkeep.
“Pain for my beauty, I accept,” she claims. “He [Dr Klein] do a great job, it’s like an art.”
“She doesn’t want to be old,” adds Dr Klein. “She want to be young, forever young. So we treat it, little by little. She is not addicted, she doesn’t have too much. She just wants to be young.”
As inspiration, Orit cites Sophia Loren as a beauty icon for when she grows older.
“Look at Sophia Loren,” she exclaims. “She’s beautiful. She keeps her beauty. I am high maintenance like a Ferrari, a Lamborghini. I have to take care of myself so I can be pretty on the road.”
Irish actor Jimmy Nesbitt has publicly battled hair loss for years. But he recently showed off a full head of hair and has revealed that he has opted for a couple of hair replacement procedures over the past couple of years to restore his locks.
49-year old Jimmy Nesbitt may currently be best known for his work in The Hobbit, but he may soon become known as another actor who is brave enough to admit to plastic surgery. The Daily Mail reports that Jimmy admits to starting hair restoration procedures three years ago, undergoing two procedures and even appearing in a promotional video for his clinic of choice, the Hair Restoration Blackrock (HRBR) clinic in Dublin.
In the video, Jimmy explains his battle with hair loss and his decision to undergo plastic surgery hair restoration procedures:
“Several years ago, I began losing my hair and like a lot of men it was a major concern to me, in fact it was practically an obsession. But, also I’m an actor so I’m in the public eye a lot and I really felt that my hair loss could affect my career prospects.”
“So, after many agonies and a great amount of thought and believe me it’s something I didn’t take lightly, I took the decision to visit Hair Restoration Blackrock, Dublin in Ireland.”
“So, I had a consultation with the surgeon who told me I was a good candidate for hair transplant surgery.”
“Since then I have had two hair transplants and I am very pleased with the results. In fact, I’d go as far as to say they’ve changed my life.”
In addition to hair restoration, Jimmy says that he is also using medications Finasteride and Minoxidil in order to improve the quality of his hair as well as to prevent further hair loss.
In his video testimonial, he explains that because his new hairline has attracted so much attention, he decided to help other men experiencing hair loss that might be interested in hair restoration.
Prior to his hair restoration procedures, Jimmy was open about his obsession with his receding hairline.
Back in 2001, Jimmy admitted to taking vitamins to restore his hair. And eight years ago he revealed that he had tried a lotion to stimulate hair growth, despite the discomfort.
“It opens the pores of the scalp to encourage new growth. It’s ridiculous, but it’s horrible going bald. Anyone who says it isn’t is lying.”
In the past, Jimmy was so concerned about how his hair loss would affect his career that he wore a wig for some of his roles.
Now it seems that Jimmy is feeling much more secure about his hair situation and looks to be pleased with the results. Jimmy’s hairline looks natural and the restoration process seems to have been a success. After two restoration procedures, Jimmy’s hair is now long enough to style as he wants, whether it’s a sporty spike or over to the side.
Hermione Norris is well known to British audiences for her roles in various television series, including Cold Feet. Now about to begin a new drama, The Crimson Field, Hermione confesses that she would love to have a complete plastic surgery makeover.
47-year old Hermione Norris started her acting career at the age of 19 and since then has appeared on various television programs as Karen Marsden from Cold Feet, or Spooks’ tough Ros Myers, or even DCI Carol Jordan from Wire In The Blood. As she gets ready to start on The Crimson Field, a drama series set against the backdrop of World War I, Herminone confesses that if she could, she would go under the knife for a total body plastic surgery makeover to improve every part of her body from top to bottom.
“I want my boobs done,” she says, cupping them.
“But I just want them lifted a bit, not implants, and I don’t think they do that. And I’d have my thighs tightened because all the muscle and skin tone’s gone.”
“And I’d have the cellulite shlooshed out of my tummy. And I’d have that wattle thing done, under my neck.”
“Oh yes, and hair implants – maybe a hair transplant. If I had the money, I’d go to the best plastic surgeon in America and have the lot. I look all right in my clothes, but underneath I’m a melted candle. You wouldn’t want to go there…”
It may surprise Hermione to learn that a breast lift without implants is possible, although many women like to get implants placed as well to restore lost volume in the breasts. A little liposuction on her thighs and a tummy tuck could probably help her look less like a melted candle without clothing. And a necklift could certainly get rid of her “wattle.”
While many women desire thicker hair, Hermione’s hair looks like it is a thin texture so rather than opt for a hair transplant, she may want to consider trying topical products first or maybe taking vitamins that can also help to improve the texture and quality of her hair.
While Hermione is very open about planning her plastic surgery fantasy, she gets coy when asked about any work she may have already had, or would consider having, including Botox injections.
“I’m not telling you! If you have surgery, don’t speak about it. But I’m not against it, obviously.”
Hermione has a very natural appearance but is lacking any deep wrinkles, so it is possible that she has tried Botox in the past or uses smaller amounts between her brows and in her forehead so that she still has a natural look without a super smooth and shiny forehead.
More and more stars are admitting to plastic surgery, even if they have natural results like Robin Wright, star of House of Cards who admitted to getting Botox injections despite having a very natural appearance, saying that everyone does it.none
It’s been decades since Kenny Loggins wrote some of his biggest hits for now classic films like Footloose and Top Gun. But on a recent guest star appearance on Raising Hope, Kenny was hardly recognizable and it wasn’t just because he ditched the bushy beard. It looks like Kenny has taken some time off from music for plastic surgery.
66-year old Kenny Loggins recently returned to the small screen to perform Danny’s Song on the series finale of Raising Hope, one of Fox’s famously underappreciated shows. Although his voice sounded as good as ever, fans couldn’t help but notice that Kenny is looking different these days, and it’s not just because he’s trimmed his hair and beard back since his 80s heyday.
Overall, Kenny has taken on a somewhat tight and pulled appearance, which is probably the result of a facelift. Kenny may have had a facelift in the last 10 years, before his skin had a lot of laxity or the surgeon could have been a little overzealous so his face looks very tight and pulled.
Kenny’s eyes also look a little different, so he may have had a blepharoplasty to take care of sagging lids, or he may get Botox injections to lift his brow a little and show off his eyes.
Still trim and in shape, Kenny’s cheekbones seemed very full for a slim man, which could be an indication that he is using fillers in his cheeks and possible his nasolabial folds as well, although his facial hair mainly covers that area, so it is hard to tell for sure.
Most likely Kenny also gets Botox injections in his forehead and between his brows in the area known as the 11s. While photos from only a few years ago show that Kenny was exhibiting normal signs of aging with a few wrinkles in his forehead, the wrinkles have since disappeared, which is a likely indication that Botox has been used.
Making Kenny’s plastic surgery procedures all the more obvious is that his neck still looks to be exhibiting signs of aging. If Kenny wanted to make his procedures less obvious, then he may want to consider a necklift to get rid of some of the wrinkles. He could also try easing up on the Botox injections so that his face does have some expression and signs of aging that help match his neck.
Kenny isn’t the only musical star that has turned to plastic surgery over the years. And while his cosmetic surgery may be obvious, other stars have suffered far worse in their attempts to turn back the hands of time.
Kenny Rogers gambled with plastic surgery and lost. After marrying a much younger woman and having young kids, Kenny felt old and underwent eyelid surgery, a browlift and a facelift which resulted in a very obvious and somewhat feminine appearance. Since then, Kenny has sworn off plastic surgery, which is probably for the best.
Lately, Real Housewife of Atlanta Porsha Stewart has come under scrutiny for a breast augmentation and she may have indirectly confirmed that the rumors are true during a radio interview.
Porsha Stewart tends to spend a lot of time in the public eye, whether it’s for plastic surgery rumors, or the fights and feuds that the ladies of The Real Housewives of Atlanta are best known for. Lately, fans have wondered if the rumors about Porsha’s former husband, ex NFL player Kordell Stewart being gay, are true. But fans are just as likely wondering if Porsha’s stunning figure is natural or the result of plastic surgery.
After posting a suggestive photo of herself to Twitter, the rumor mill began swirling that Porsha had undergone some sort of breast augmentation, or that she invested in a super push-up bra.
Although Porsha has yet to confirm the speculation, she did sit down with 106 & Park host Keshia Chante and revealed that she indeed had some work done.
When asked if she had any work done recently, Porsha responded, “Yes, I have! Recently I did.”
However, when asked as to what that work was, Porsha remained coy, refusing to answer the question directly, but saying, “I can’t tell you; you have to guess!”
If the photos are any indication, it does seem that Porsha is starting a new life with a new boyfriend and a new album on the way and some new body parts as well. Porsha does look much bustier than she did previously, which is an indication of breast augmentation. It could also be that she is wearing a great fitting push up bra, however the roundness and new fullness of her breasts make it seem likely that plastic surgery is at play.
Recently, not only have fans suspected Porsha of a breast augmentation, but she has also come under scrutiny for a possible buttocks augmentation. Like many Real Housewives, Porsha looks to have spent more than a little time under the knife to transform into more than a pretty face, but quite the stunner. She probably had a slight nose job early in her career to refine and slightly narrow her nose. And although she has probably dabbled in lip fillers over the years, it looks like she new relies on lip gloss to plump her pout.
While Porsha hasn’t openly admitted to plastic surgery, she did openly respond to recent questions about whether or not her backside had undergone some sort of augmentation, either using implants or fillers or fat grafting.
On an episode of Watch What Happens Live, a fan was bold enough to ask whether or not the Real Housewife of Attlanta had gotten any plastic done on her derriere, to which Porsha replied in the negative.
Porsha said, “I take that as a compliment. These fake butts in Atlanta, they look good. They sit up, they sit high. So if you think mine is fake, thank you girl, but it’s not!”
Lady Gaga has faced her share of plastic surgery rumors in the past. But her new beauty routine seems to be all true as the quixotically dressed performer stepped out for some luxury skincare treatments twice in one week, in honor of her birthday.
In the past, Lady Gaga has said that she hasn’t had plastic surgery because as an artist, she wants ” free will to choose the way the world will envision me.” However, she did later admit to having some nonsurgical plastic surgery procedures, done, in a strip mall rather than a skincare clinic as one would expect of an international star.
However, in the new interview, she has amended her previous statement to saying, that she has never had any ” work-work done,” by which she is most likely referring to invasive operations performed by a plastic surgeon.
Probably, her biggest changes come from her makeup artist, although Lady Gaga did tell Howard Stern her deepest darkest plastic surgery secrets, saying that just last year she would regularly head to a strip mall to get fillers like Juvederm placed.
According to Gaga, she wasn’t in a happy place at the time and would smoke pot before deciding to head to a lady in a strip mall in Chicago for facial injections. However, she says that she since stopped getting fillers because a photographer friend of hers advised against it.
Turning 28 at the end of March must have had made Gaga very happy because the star stepped out for a luxurious facial treatment not once but twice in one week. Sources spotted Gaga visiting the Tracie Martyn Skin Care Salon in NYC on March 25th and March 27th, just ahead of her birthday.
Apparently Gaga had sessions with celebrity facialist Tracie Martyn, undergoing her Red Carpet Facial. According to UsWeekly, the treatment is also favored by Kate Winslet and is known as the “haute couture of all treatments.” The super luxurious facial is designed to lift, firm and contour the jaw line, cheek bones and around the eyes using mild current and LED lights during an hour long session that costs around $450.
In the past, Gaga has told Elle U.K 2011, that a healthy sex life was responsible for her great skin. “Orgasms, lots of orgasms,” she said. “Orgasms and spinach.”
If Gaga wanted to get a great glow without drawing the interest of the paparazzi ,she could try using a ProSonic device. The device is even available in a travel size, so that she can take it on tour and use it in the privacy of her hotel room.
The ProSonic Face & Body Professional Cleansing/Exfoliation Anti Aging Brush Set is the same type of device used by professional estheticians. It’s also the only such device available over the Internet to the public. The cleansing system offers four different speeds for face and body, and for exfoliation/microdermabrasion. The ProSonic clears clogged pores and also helps to get rid of wrinkles and fine lines.
Apparently there is more than one negative effect of too much plastic surgery. If you can’t afford the procedures, you can go bankrupt. Apparently Janice Dickinson found this out the hard way, to the tune of nearly $1 million. Luckily, Janice has found a solution to the financial problems that going under the knife on a regular basis has incurred.
59-year old Janice Dickinson has been getting plastic surgery for years, including procedures such as breast implants, tummy tuck, and extensive Botox treatments. Last year, all her plastic surgery began to add up and Janice declared bankruptcy.
The New York Post via The Daily Mail reported at the time that Janice owes over $16,000 to Beverly Hills dermatologist Arnold Klein and the Beverly Hills Anti-Aging Center.
Now it seems that Janice has found a solution to her problems, according to TMZ. TMZ has reportedly obtained documents that say the total amount Janice owes would be hard to reclaim, ”due to debtor’s age, lack of assets and lack of income” so she can pay off $10,000 and the remainder over a three-year payment plan.
According to the documents, former ‘America’s Next Top Model’ judge’s fiance, psychologist Dr. Robert Gerner can also help Janice pay off her debts.
Janice also owes back taxes from the past decade, totaling over half a million dollars to California, New York and the Internal Revenue Service.
Despite her financial woes, Janice doesn’t appear to have slowed down on the cosmetic surgery procedures. Since her bankruptcy declaration was first revealed, Janice hasn’t eased up on having her nips and tucks.
Janice told Star magazine that her latest beauty trick uses Chinese human placenta.
The supermodel travels to China for the controversial treatment that takes stem cells from human placentas and injects them into the skin. She tells Star magazine, “If anybody is going to have a state-of-the-art, revolutionary skin-care miracle, it’s going to be me, with my hand out, first in line. My skin ahs gone from gray to rosy pink, and I feel great!”
The procedure is super new and probably won’t be approved in the United States anytime soon. Because it is so new, any long-term effects or side effects are still unknown. At any rate, it’s unlikely that the procedure will catch on as each treatment is $10,000! Then there is also all the expense of travel to figure in.
Despite all the time and money, Janice remains enthusiastic about the procedure, saying she hopped on a plane soon after learning about Blue Horizon International, the company that performs the procedure. She flew for 24 hours to China with her fiancé and went straight from the airport to the hospital to be prepped for the treatment.
Starpulse reports that Janice has noted improvements in the skin all over her body: “My skin is just amazing. My face and legs and my hands and my feet and my vagina and my butt. Everything got so smooth. My life has improved tremendously!”
Life must be even better for Janice now that the burden of bankruptcy seems to have been resolved.
