Breast reduction is a cosmetic surgical procedure in which excess breast fat, glandular tissue, and skin are removed to achieve a breast size that is proportionate to the body. Women with disproportionately large breasts who experience physical discomfort, pain, and emotional distress frequently choose this procedure. Breast reduction surgery is becoming increasingly popular among women in Nigeria, including celebrities.
This article will go over the top 4 Nigerian celebrities who have had breast reduction surgery.
Nollywood actress Yvonne Jegede is the first woman on today’s list. The actress had her breasts reduced and made the revelation known when she appeared on Mercy’s Menu. Speaking about it when clearing up comments she has heard about herself, Yvonne Jegede said:
YVONNE JEGEDE: There are tons of comments I’ve seen on the internet starting from my marriage till now, there are so many comments. But the comment that makes me laugh is when people say she has gone to do her bum. Is it because everybody is doing bum now, anybody who now does her body must have done bum? I’ve done my tummy, I’ve done my boobs – I reduced my breast twice.

I have been having back lately, and when I went to my doctor for that, he said I was caarying load on my chest, that’s what’s causing it.

I don’t have any secret, I mind what I eat. Honestly, the best secret is about me going for breast reduction. The boobs were huge. It was huge to the extent that I started having a backache. I stopped getting my sizes, I will go to the shops, they will do measurement and still not get my size. And when I had my second child I just thought to myself I need to do something about the boobs. After my second child, the boobs became so big, I spent so much on massage every day just because of my back. It was really affecting me
