Kenyan socialite and business lady Vera Sidika has admitted she underwent surgery to enlarge her breasts.
Speaking during an interview with Kiss FM radio presenter Jalang’o on Monday, Sidika said she had the procedure a few years ago in the United States.
She said the surgery done in Beverly Hills, an affluent city in Los Angeles, California, cost her at least Sh2 million.
Sidika indicated that the procedure involved silicone being filled in her breasts in order to make her body proportional. She explained that she had a thick body with small breasts.
“I wasn’t proportional… I used to be thick but not proportional so I just decided to be proportional and added my boobs and I at least don’t wear bras anymore…”
“It cost me Sh2 million ($20,000). I got it done in Beverly Hills,” she noted.
Sidika, who runs Vera Sidika Beauty Parlor and Spa, added that the surgery is safe and did not affect her ability to breastfeed.
“They don’t interfere with your breasts as you can still breastfeed. The breast has like a ka-pocket that is empty, so they normally put the implant in that pocket, so it doesn’t interfere with anything in your breasts,” she remarked.
But Sidika denied claims that she also enlarged her butt, saying that she has always been thick and curvaceous since her high school years.
“I grew up with it that but I had a problem showing it off because I used to feel fat… but when I came to Nairobi I just decided to live my life and started wearing a short dress, showing my curves and now people will appreciate it and that’s when I started embracing it. I started liking the attention… I have never added my butt,” she said.
In 2017, Vera divulged that she spent millions to bleach her skin, a decision she does not regret making.
“My body is my business and my source of finance, my bank account got fat after I lightened my skin,” she said.
