OutDaughtered's Danielle Busby Reveals The Truth About Plastic Surgery

In November 2020, Adam Busby took fans by surprise when he shared a photo of his wife lying in a doctor's office, her face covered with a towel, and asked followers to pray for Danielle as she was "currently in the ER running tests for some alarming sensations in her arms and legs. It just happened rather quickly today," he wrote on Instagram.

The health scare soon turned into a terrifying mystery, as the OutDaughtered star struggled to get answers about her diagnosis. As she shared in one Instagram Story (via Us Weekly), she needed to jump between doctors and had so far been "led to the care of a cardiologist and rheumatologist." Jump to Jan. 5, 2021 — nearly two months after her initial trip to the emergency room — and the mom of six was booked in for her "most invasive test so far." Adam asked fans on Instagram to "refrain from speculation," adding that he was "praying it leads to answers and a clear direction for the doctors."

So why are fans asking Danielle about plastic surgery, and what does she make of the questions? More on that below.

What is the latest on Danielle Busby's health scare?

On Jan. 7, 2021, Danielle Busby gave fans the update they were hoping for when she took to Instagram to reveal that she would not need to go under the knife. "I went into my procedure on Monday pretty certain that I would be coming out with having to have a surgery, but my prayer was answered and NO surgery is needed," she enthused, continuing, "I am thanking YOU ALL for the extra prayers because I believe in the POWER of PRAYER and I am certain these prayers helped my outcome."

Even so, the reality TV star clarified that the positive result "doesn't mean this is the end to my current struggles. More test, lead to more doctors... but still no clear answer at the moment of what's going on," she wrote before asking for privacy once more. "Please understand, I am in the window of uncertainty and I only feel comfortable sharing as much as this," she added.

The mystery illness, however, isn't the only reason that Danielle's medical history has been the subject of scrutiny. In January 2021, fans speculated that Danielle had undergone cosmetic surgery. 

Did Danielle Busby have plastic surgery?

Danielle Busby is no stranger to fans asking her personal questions. Having become a household name thanks to TLC, she's been criticized for controversial parenting decisions, been subjected to cheating rumors, and been repeatedly asked about having plastic surgery. Taking to Instagram Live for a Q&A session on Jan. 21, 2021, the mama of six was asked about her health, but not just about the mystery illness she's been battling. No, one fan thought the timing was right to ask Danielle if she's ever gotten plastic surgery. Rather than brushing off the intrusive question, however, she decided to answer.

"This question I get a lot," she said (via Us Weekly), clarifying, "No, I have not had a tummy tuck." She was quick to add that she "would not think any less of someone else wanting to get one" and admitted that body image is a very real struggle postpartum. "I know the 'after' body challenges our body faces after going through pregnancy, so if some other mom chose to have a tummy tuck, by all means... you do you," encouraged Busby, who has previously posted snaps of herself showing off her #mommytummy to Instagram.

Here's wishing Danielle a speedy recovery.
