The Truth About Alexis Skyy's Plastic Surgery

It's always refreshing when celebs are super honest with their fans, choosing to open up about topics that may be seen as taboo, including plastic surgery. In fact, it's only been in the past few years that stars have been more forthcoming about their cosmetic enhancements, choosing to own their plastic surgery procedures as a point of pride.

That's where Love & Hip Hop star Alexis Skyy comes into play. Alexis, who has starred on multiple iterations of the VH1 franchise, has built up a huge following on social media. As of this writing, she boasts over 4 million followers on Instagram. The reality star's high follower count could be thanks, in part, to the sexy snaps she posts that show off her sculpted figure. Alexis has always been upfront about her cosmetic surgery, popping up on Instagram Live several times to discuss her procedures and answer fan questions.

So, in her own words, here's the truth about Alexis Skyy's plastic surgery.

Alexis Skyy has gone under the knife multiple times

Over the years, Alexis Skyy has been open about her cosmetic procedures, even showing off the scars from her breast enhancement surgery on Instagram Live. During a live session in early 2020, the reality star lifted up her shirt to show off her near-invisible under boob marks from a surgery. She explained that she got silicone implants, which she advised any of her viewers considering a boob job to get over "gummy" implants.

The reality star also divulged that she got her hips enhanced, explaining that it was this surgery that gave her the hourglass shape she always wanted. "I got my hips done, so it could make an illusion to give me hips," she revealed. "I always wanted to be, like, curvy."

She continued, "That was like my secret to ...," she trailed off, making an hourglass shape with her hands. However, she "never touched" her butt, she said. "That's why my butt still has a natural look to it," she explained.

Alexis Skyy has received backlash for her comments on plastic surgery

In an Instagram Live session captured by The Shade Room, Alexis Skyy shared a heartfelt message about true beauty. She revealed that while she's entirely supportive of fans going under the knife if that's what makes them feel confident about themselves — especially given that she has done so herself — she also told them that a person's real beauty is in their heart.

"At the end of the day, I want you guys to know though surgery and all that stuff does not make you beautiful ...," she told viewers. "What makes you beautiful, in here [your heart] at the end of the day. It doesn't matter if you don't have a big a**. It doesn't matter if you don't have big t*tties. Everybody has their own beauty."

According to Ace Showbiz, some fans found her comments hypocritical since Alexis has openly admitted to getting cosmetic procedures. "But she stay flaunting that purchased body every chance she gets but preaching plastic surgery doesn't make you beautiful....," commented one follower on TSR's post. "[G]irl let them women get their surgery if that's what makes them feel good."

Alexis Skyy also dabbles in controversial beauty treatments

In addition to divulging her plastic surgery pursuits, Alexis Skyy posts videos and photos on her Instagram account promoting waist trainers, which have been under scrutiny since celebs first started getting paid to preach the product's wonders on social media.

In an Instagram post from April 16, 2020, the reality star wore a What Waist band and praised its ability to keep her waist snatched. She revealed that she wears the band for "two or three hours" during the day, keeping her stomach in check while her butt continues to get bigger.

One issue with waist trainers, however, is that they totally smush your organs. According to Livestrong, one's "stomach, lungs, liver, kidneys and other organs are pushed into unnatural positions, and may be too crowded to function properly." The site also notes that waist trainers can crack your ribs if worn long-term, are unsafe to exercise in, and can compromise your digestive system, among other complications.
