Raven-Symoné opens up about having two breast reduction surgeries, and lipo all before she turned 18 years old.

On an episode of her podcast The Best Podcast Ever with Raven and Miranda. Raven explains, “I had two breast reductions and lipo before I turned 18.” She continues, “there was paperwork involved. My dad suggested strongly that I should get my breasts reduced. He was like, ‘So you don’t feel bad, is there anything that you want?’ I was like, ‘Yeah, if I get lipo, will people stop calling me fat?’ So I got a two-fer.”

 Symoné said the entire situation “was just a mess, just being that young and the pain of it all.”

 She also suffered a seizure from the surgery. “And I remember waking up and seeing everything . . . I started having this dry mouth and couldn’t breathe and went back under and they were like ‘You have a seizure,’ ” she recounted.

“The recovery was a little painful,” she recalled. “I still have scar tissue to this day. I gained weight after and had to go back for a little bit more out because they were still too big . . .”

Symoné explained that the the body shaming didn’t stop after the surgery. She says she “still got reamed through social media because I wasn’t skinny as everybody else and they still called me fat. You get that done and it’s still not what everybody wanted to see.”
