On July 10, the pop star’s publicist posted a series of tweets announcing her plans to undergo a facial lift and facial implants.
The tweets, which came shortly after the singer posted a photo of herself without any makeup, included a video of her looking visibly different from her famous “Madonna” look.
She has long maintained that her surgeries were not cosmetic and that she only had a cosmetic surgeon do the procedure, although her publicist later clarified that the singer did have a plastic surgeon do her face lift and implant surgery.
“She wants to have surgery that’s a gift from God,” the publicist said of the singer.
“It’s a very personal, personal decision that she has to make.”
Madonna is the latest celebrity to make a big-name plastic surgery announcement, following the announcement by the former Miss Universe Alicia Machado that she was having cosmetic surgery.
Machado underwent the procedure after her 2012 book, “It Takes a Village: The Untold Story of Alicia Machados Journey,” was published.
“I have been working very hard on my body to get the kind of look that I want to have,” Machado told Rolling Stone.
“That’s what I’ve always been trying to do and I want everyone to know I have been honest with myself.
I want people to understand that I’m not perfect, and I have made mistakes.
I have worked hard to be who I am, and if I can do it, I’m willing to make the best of it.”
Madonna’s plastic surgery is part of her wider ongoing relationship with celebrity doctors and cosmetic surgeons, which she has previously described as “love and support.”
In 2015, she explained to the Huffington Post that the plastic surgery industry has become a “love/support relationship” and she’s glad to help others, even if they don’t have money to pay for the procedure.
“A lot of these surgeons come in and they’re looking to make money, they’re asking me to do the surgery, they give me advice on the procedure,” Madonna said.
“But they’re really looking out for my health.
They’re giving me advice that they think will benefit me.”
Madonna, a frequent collaborator of the surgeon-turned-actor, has made a habit of making public appearances at celebrity-friendly venues, including an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last year.
