On June 8, 2018, few episodes of Tonto Dikeh’s new reality series “King Tonto” were released on the new online streaming platform, Linda Ikeji TV.
In episode 3 of King Tonto, the actress opened up about going under the knife saying, it was something she had considered for a while over the years, as she has had some insecurities about her body.
“While I do believe that God created me perfectly, I also believe that God has placed doctors, surgeons and medicine in our lives for a reason. I am not trying to tweak God’s work, I am not trying to tamper with God’s work, I am just trying to appreciate my body more,” the actress said.
The show revealed how she pay a visit to a cosmetic surgeon, Doctor Ayo, whose work she had both seen and heard about.
“I think that he is really really good. So I got up this morning and thought, ‘girl, you deserve this and this is what you really want. If it’s gonna make you happy, do it.”
When she visited with the surgeon, the actress revealed what led to her decision of going under the knife. She told the doctor that while she is just coming out of a particular phase in her life – having a baby and going through a divorce – she is at a happy place and everything is exciting but her body is something that she has always been extremely ashamed of.
“I don’t think any man has ever seen me totally naked because I am not even comfortable with my own body. I have actually wanted to correct a few things on my body and I think this is the right time to do it. “she tells Doctor Ayo.
Speaking on the specific areas of her body that had given her concerns, the actress says, “my boobs, I have a very soft breast, it has never ever been firm. Even while growing up, it has always been very soft and droopy.”
Also, I have the under womb thing that no matter how much I work out, I still have this bulge out there. This moment, I don’t even want to work out anymore. I just want to take out the fat. Then I want to cinch my waist.”
She doesn’t really care much for the butt, but then, she doesn’t mind if the doctor works on it to enlarge it. However, after a body check, the doctor told her she had no body fat and would need to add some weight for the surgery, which from several promo clips, eventually took place.
