Sithelo Shozi has revealed she got a Brazilian butt lift and liposuction. The socialite and DJ took to her Instagram stories sharing graphic before-and-after pictures of her transformation on Wednesday, after being discharged from The Clinique Istanbul in Turkey.
“I wish we’d retract the surgery stigma we seem to pass on. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with giving yourself a makeover, it’s each to their own when it comes to such after three children. This was the best decision and best reward I could’ve given myself.” she wrote. Sithelo revealed that she had gone on a strict diet to undergo the procedure and said she specifically targeted her “hip dips”. 
The Diamonds & Dolls star does not hide the fact that she has gone under the knife to get her banging body. Speaking during a tell-all interview on Just Skin Deep? Inno Morolong said she decided to have surgery because she wanted her pre-baby body back. Morolong said she had three surgeries which are a 360 BBL, liposuction and a tummy tuck.
The controversial media personality said she did not follow the Turkey trend like other socialites but she had her surgeries in South Africa. She added that the entire eight-hour procedure cost her around R50K and no man paid for it. She said she save for a few months to get the money for the surgery. The 29-year-old stunner said she has no regrets about her decision to go under the knife. She told the Daily Sun that she wants to go back again and have a breast lift and fix her arms.
Eva underwent a successful Brazilian butt lift and liposuction in Turkey in April. She travelled there after a friend from Tanzania recommended the clinic and the doctor.
Speaking to TshisaLIVE after her April procedure, she lauded the clinic for taking care of her and criticised a South African hospital for allowing her to go home the same day.
“The experience at the hospital in Turkey has been amazing. The aftercare is superior. They literally check up on you every hour. I can walk around the hospital. The nurses help with breathing exercises and other techniques to help me recover fast. I love it here.”
Eva said after realising other people also struggle to find the right doctors, she chose to share her journey and will broadcast it on the second season of Diamond and Dolls.
“There are many people who have had failed or botched procedures and are afraid to speak about it. I want others to learn from my mistakes and be aware of the risks that come with choosing surgery.”
