Iggy Azalea flaunts her plastic surgery with body confidence message
You might know the old Iggy Azalea (you know, the one who caused a major Pride protest last year and slammed Britney Spears that one time), but she wants you to know she's new and improved — and no, she's not just talking physically.
Iggy Azalea took to Instagram to wish her plastic surgeon a happy birthday, and she included some much-needed words of positivity about a woman's right to control her body.
"Happy birthday @DrGhavami," Azalea wrote on Instagram, captioning a picture of herself and Dr. Ashkan Ghavami. "It might seem obvious I'd hold the man I owe my fabulous nose and breasts to in high regard. But vanity aside; Ash you're hilarious as hell, talented, eclectic, a progressive thinker & someone who supports women in their choice to do what they want with their OWN bodies (tons of men don't share that sentiment). So cheers to you! I'm proud to call you my friend."
I don't think it's just men who hold to that opinion. Despite plastic surgery's extreme popularity these days, the stigma around it still exists. Otherwise, Azalea's statement is spot on. If you want to change your body, why shouldn't you have the power to do just that and feel proud of it? Azalea is obviously more than happy with her new looks, and good for her for rocking them.
Following Azalea's post, Dr. Ghavami reposted her photo and echoed her sentiments about body positivity.
"Thank you a mill for everything!" he wrote. "Your bold confidence is to be respected! My BDay is complete. Those like you who stand apart and trailblaze their own path no matter who tries to block or impede it, ALWAYS come out ahead, most importantly for themselves."
Azalea hasn't been shy about her decision to get plastic surgery. She first debuted her new looks at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards.
She then did an interview with Seventeen magazine about her journey to self-acceptance.
"Plastic surgery is an emotional journey," she said in the interview. "It's no easy feat to live with your flaws and accept yourself — and it's no easy feat to change yourself.... There are things I didn't like about myself that I changed through surgery."
Do you think society should be more accepting of plastic surgery?
