Popular Kenyan socialite and beauty entrepreneur Vera Sidika has come out and admitted that she has undergone a reverse surgery procedure to discard her infamous butt implants.

In a post on her Instagram page, Sidika termed her decision to remove the implants “the hardest phase in my life” attributing her sudden change to “health risks and complications.”

The new mother accompanied her post with a photo depicting her new look in which she has a leaner derriere, a stark contrast to the one she has been famous for for over a decade.

“It’s still very unbelievable but I’ve come to terms with it & learnt to love myself regardless. Ladies, please learn to love yourself and don’t ever let peer pressure rush you into things that will ruin you in future. I’m lucky to be alive, God loves me so much. Honestly It’s been pretty hard, I didn’t even celebrate my birthday this year, but here we are. Happy birthday to me. New me. I’ve come to appreciate life & never take things for granted. Thanks to my family, especially my husband for being there for me,” Sidika wrote on Instagram.

The new-look socialite thanked her fans for standing with her urging them to continue doing so in her next phase as she was still “same sweetest Vera Sidika and that hasn’t changed.”

Sidika pledged to share videos of her risky reverse surgery journey in her attempt to change the minds of other women and girls thinking of enhancing their bodies by cosmetic surgery.
