While many Bravolebs have taken cameras along with them during their forays into plastic surgery, others, like Kandi Burruss, prefer to keep things close to the chest (and back and stomach as well). The Real Housewives of Atlanta businesswoman sat down with her husband for his Cooking with Todd YouTube series to discuss her history with cosmetic procedures, and the video is so jam packed with amazing tips and advice that we had to take notes.
Let's just get right into it. After Todd cooked what looks to be a tasty veggie omelet, he asked Kandi if she's ever gone under the knife. Then, our girl revealed every detail of what she's had done, including treatments that she regrets and what she plans on tackling next.
"I've had lipo. I've had a boob job," Kandi said frankly. "The first time I ever had lipo... I was just trying to get them to flatten out the little pooch that was around my navel area because I was still skinny. After I had Riley I always had like a little pooch that wasn't tight. And he curved my side, you know where your love handles [are]? He curved that a little bit. I was kind of already in shape when I did it." Who knew?
Then, after Todd "tries it" by asking if this was during Kandi's music heyday, she responded, "No, back then I was rock solid tight. That was before Riley. Go look at the videos, boo. I worked out all the time. Abs was on deck... tighter than yours."
Kandi even explained how she went in for a little subtle tune-up between seasons. "So, first season I had never had lipo or anything. But going into Season 3, I had a little lipo before that. I still, like, looked the same. It was just for my own personal. He took some fat from my lower back area, so he curved my back a bit more. It does give you more of a 'pow' look. I never did anything to my butt, when you curve your back a little bit more, it makes it more pronounced like 'whoo!'"
Later, Kandi also had her chest augmented, but she confessed that she regrets it. "I had boobs but they were just like sad. They were saggy. They were saggy even after, but I put a little fat in my boobs. So that was after Season 2."
And here is where Kandi really came in hot with the fire advice for anyone thinking of taking the plastic surgery plunge. "Because I got like super super busy around that time, I wasn't working out as much. So I started gaining weight. At that point I had little boobs, they became huge because it went up a good 10 to 15 pounds within a year to two years after having lipo," she explained in the full video.
"All of sudden... huge boobs, huge thighs, huge ass... everything was looking extra big and I think it's because when you do take fat out of your waist area, you can get bigger there but not like you used to gain there. It goes to other places. Then I started noticing a little double chin. If you're ever going to try lipo... don't get comfortable. You need to work out even harder than you did before so that you can maintain the lipo."
So does Kandi have plans for more? "I want to get a breast reduction."
