Blac Chyna Explained Her Decision To Undergo Butt Injections As A Teen
Blac Chyna sat down with Tamron Hall and explained that “insecurities” influenced her to undergo illegal butt injections as a teenager.
“Insecurities and, honestly, what was kind of in [during] that moment…”
The 34-year-old went on to explain that at the time she wanted to portray a “perfect” physical appearance. Additionally, working as an exotic dancer from the age of 18-24, she explained, also had an impact on the decision.
“I was an exotic dancer for six years from the ages of 18 to 24 years old. And being inside the strip club or the gentleman’s club, you’re looking around — I’m super young — I’m looking at the women like, I’m looking at myself like, ‘Okay, that’s not it. This is not gonna make the money. This is not gonna do it.’”
Chyna explained that she felt “pressure” to “hurry up and build” her body so that she could look like her fellow dancers. She went on to reveal that she first underwent cosmetic enhancements at the age of 19 with silicone butt injections.
At the age of 20, Chyna underwent her first breast augmentation.

However, now looking back, the 34-year-old says that she should have waited.
“I should’ve just waited until I was older because that’s gonna happen. At 19, 18 years old, your body’s not developed. And you know, in my mindset, I wasn’t thinking about that, and nobody was telling me, you know, right from wrong.”
Additionally, the 34-year-old vowed that she is “done” with undergoing cosmetic enhancements.
“I’m done with it y’all. No more.”
During a previous interview with Access Hollywood, Chyna explained the dangers she encountered from the various cosmetic procedures over the years. After undergoing butt injections, she explained that her rear would become “super inflamed.”
“My rear end would get super inflamed and it would get really really hard and really hot. It was very scary.”
Additionally, the star explained that she has since lost 10 lbs. since removing the silicone injections from her butt.
“You know how many CCs [cubic centimeters] I took out? 1,250 CCs. A 2-liter Coke bottle all in my booty.”
Roommates, are you happy for the star as she continues to move forward?
