Doja Cat Gives A Post-Op 'Healing' Update To Fans After Breast Reduction & Lipo Surgery

Amala Ratna Zandile Dlamini, known professionally as Doja Cat, marches to the beat of her own electric guitar. As a rising juggernaut of the glitterati, she isn't someone you can box into any category, which spans from her red carpet or concert looks, all the way to how she communicates with her fans. No subject is considered to be an overshare, not even the honest news of cosmetic surgery.

The Grammy winner confirmed back in November 2022 that she had plans to undergo plastic surgery after the controversy over her sans-surgical body sent social media into a frenzy. “I’m literally about to get surgery this winter lmao,” she tweeted. “I just want my titties pulled up cuz some of my tops don’t fit the way I want them to.” Since, she has taken to social media to inform her fans she’d officially undergone a breast reduction and liposuction, and she has reported back that she’s doing just fine post-op.

She followed it up with how she's healing, saying:

The best part, in the most Doja-esque move of them all, after much speculation, she shut down the rumor mill and revealed that she actually got a breast reduction in lieu of the obviously-assumed enhancement, ultimately backing up what she told VLADTV in 2018, saying,"

There's these boobs out here that are two basketballs, and they don't make sense. They defy gravity; they defy science. It's unexplainable. It's f**king, yeah. I don't get it. I don't get fake boobs."

Although this isn't the "Kiss Me More" singer's first stint with public rest for medical reasons. While she's home healing now, last summer she was in the same predicament for surgery to have her tonsils removed. Doja shared photos from the hospital after having two surgeries on her tonsils, which ended up being the removal of an abscess from her left tonsil.

"My whole throat is f---ed so i might have some bad news for y'all coming soon. I was taking f---in' antibiotics but forgot that i was taking them and then I drank wine and was vaping all day long and then I started getting a nasty-ass growth on my tonsil so they had to do surgery on it today," she revealed.

Where all this leaves us as far as her new music goes is unclear for now as she is tight-lipped, but while we patiently await an update on Doja's fourth studio album, she made it pretty apparent that she's doing some much-desired upgrades in the interim, with a possible break from her career on the horizon.

"I want to finish this tour up, kill it, and see my fans happy. And then, I want to start writing again. I'm going to finish this next album, and then I'm going to get the f*** out for a second. I want to disappear for a little bit and just do things like wear slides and go to the farmers market."

Doja's new project is slated to hit us in the mouth sometime this year, as she has discreetly shared small details through profile edits on social media into what we can expect next. The Planet Her creator told Variety last month that this album will have more "masculine" elements, "I know that I've done a lot of pink and soft things, a lot of pop and glittery sounds, but for this next era, I'm going in a more masculine direction."

A direction we're excited to see as soon as frickin possible. Wishing you a speedy recovery, sis!

Skylar Marshai is known for her extravagant style, and her hair is no exception. But now, she’s giving her hair a break and focusing on hair care with SheaMoisture’s Bond Repair Collection. “I feel like my hair has always been an extension of my storytelling because I know it's so innately linked to my self-expression that I've been thinking a lot about how my love for crafting my hair into these different forms and shapes has honestly never given it a chance to just be,” Skylar explains.

Chloe Bailey Reveals How Community Helped Her Overcome Depression

"Depression has no face" is a common saying used to describe the mental illness.

The phrase highlights that anyone could suffer from depression, even those who appear outwardly happy and smiling. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), about 280 million people globally suffer from depression, of which 5% are adults.

Numerous notable figures within the entertainment industry have shared the importance of caring for one's mental health and seeking proper resources like therapy as a way to destigmatize the subject and let fans know they are not alone.
