Cardi B showed off her brand new body – and it immediately launched speculation that the singer recently underwent the controversial rib removal surgery, Media Take Out has learned.
Cardi B is known for having aggressive plastic surgery – but her new body is just . . . WOW. Look:
Humans are born with either 24 ribs (12 pairs) or 26 ribs (13 pairs). The ribs main function is to protect your lungs, heart, and other internal organs. However, not all ribs in the body are considered a necessity.
7 sets of ribs in the body termed as true ribs (attached to breastbone and sternum), while the remaining 5 sets are termed false ribs (attached to cartilaginous tissue), in addition, the latter 2 sets of the false ribs termed floating ribs (not attached to any tissue in front).
The floating ribs are commonly extracted during plastic surgery procedures, to equip patients with reduced waist size.
The other 10 “false” ribs can also be removed – to give a woman a very slender waist.
Recognized by Forbes as one of the most influential female rappers of all time, Cardi B holds various records among women in hip hop; she is the female rapper with the most number-one singles (five) on the Billboard Hot 100, the only to achieve multiple number ones with solo songs and the only to achieve number ones in two decades (2010s and 2020s) on the chart. She is also the female rapper with the most diamond-certified songs (three) by the RIAA, the highest-certified female rapper of all time on their Top Artists (Digital Singles) ranking, on which she is also among the 10 highest-certified women, and the female rapper with the most songs with a billion streams on Spotify—where she also has the most-streamed female rap album. She was the first lead artist to top the inaugural Billboard Global 200.
Her accolades include a Grammy Award, eight Billboard Music Awards, six Guinness World Records, six American Music Awards, 14 BET Hip Hop Awards, and two ASCAP Songwriter of the Year awards. In 2018, Time magazine included her on its annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world, and in 2020, Billboard honored her as Woman of the Year. Outside of music, she became the creative director of entertainment magazine Playboy in 2022.
