Iggy Azalea gained more than body confidence when she had plastic surgery done — she made a new friend.
On Saturday, the 26-year-old performer shared a snap of her and Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Ashkan Ghavami to wish him a happy birthday and thank him for helping women achieve the body of their dreams.
“It might seem obvious I’d hold the man I owe my fabulous nose and breasts to in high regard,” she captioned the photo. “But vanity aside; Ash you’re hilarious as hell, talented, eclectic, a progressive thinker & someone who supports women in their choice to do what they want with their OWN bodies (tons of men don’t share that sentiment).”
Azalea concluded, “So cheers to you! I’m proud to call you my friend.”
Ghavami was touched by the message and returned the sentiments by posting Azalea’s photo on his own Instagram account.
“Thank you a mill for everything! Your bold confidence is to be mad respected! My BDay is complete,” he wrote. “Those like you who stand apart and trailblaze their own path no matter who tries to block or impede it, ALWAYS come out ahead , most importantly for themselves..”
Azalea has been candid about her decisions to go under the knife as well as her appreciation for her doctor. Although she denied rumors of having butt implants, she has openly spoken about having work done on her nose and breasts on multiple occasions.
“I didn’t [need plastic surgery],” the “Fancy” rapper said on an April visit to The Ellen DeGeneres Show. “There was nothing wrong with me. I think it’s a personal choice and anybody, man or woman, they should be able to make an informed decision, and if you want to change something, then that’s up to you.”
“I didn’t have boobs. Before, I just had nipples, and now I have breasts,” she explained.
Azalea confesses her new nose isn’t a major change, despite all the negative talk about it.
“Yeah, I don’t know if it was worth the backlash,” Azalea said of the comments she received on social media. “I should have changed it more so it was worth it!”
