Former Big Brother Naija housemate Alex has shared her two cents about people who undergo cosmetic surgery.
The reality TV star made this known via her Snapchat where she gave a very lengthy view about how insecurity has made so many people opt for cosmetic surgery.
“In my opinion, if it is not due to health condition and you wake up and then choose to go for cosmetic surgery to add bum, touch your face or one of those mum things, you are an insecure person,” she wrote.
“I also admire your courageousness as that life risk takes a lot of it but what if you had gone through the route of determination and discipline, I believe that body is achievable. My friends already know my take on this.”
She also highlighted that going for cosmetic surgery doesn’t automatically make the person a bad person but, he or she does need to build self-love.
“Going for surgery doesn’t make you a bad person. But I know you need help to build self-love and the people around you aren’t helping.”
Alex’s post is coming on the heels of a socialite who died after going under the knife.
However, cosmetic surgery has become a part of the lifestyles of several celebrities in Nigeria.
In 2017, Nollywood actress Tonto Dikeh surprised many fans when a video of her going under the knife for cosmetic surgery was released.
The famous video was shared on Linda Ikeji‘s TV as part of her now aborted reality TV show.
After she went under the knife and openly talked about it, several celebrities joined the bandwagon.
Other celebrities who have had cosmetic surgery include Toke Makinwa, BBNaija’s Khloe and recently, reality TV star, Nina.
