Shauna Chyn's '$2-m body': Entertainer opens up about cosmetic surgery
Dancehall artiste Shauna Chyn is lighting up the world of Instagram with pictures showing off her bodacious new body.
She is the sexy poster girl of what great body contouring surgery can do for your self-esteem, and your marketability.
Body contouring surgery encompasses a number of different body sculpting techniques used by cosmetic surgeons to reshape almost any area of the body. Through body sculpting surgery, patients can effectively eliminate excess fat and skin that are unresponsive to diet and exercise.
Cosmetic surgeons employ a variety of body sculpting techniques to help their patients achieve lean, toned figures, including liposuction, tummy tuck, and body lift surgery.
“I took the fat out of my back, belly, armpit and between my legs and put it in my bottom. I am now a 38 cup in my breasts. After the surgery, I was basically a baby again so I had to have a personal nurse for two weeks,” Chyn told Loop Jamaica reporter Claude Mills.
The entertainer said she had to scrounge hard and budget to be able to ‘squirrel’ away the money to do the multi-million dollar surgery.
“I saved money for a really long time to do this surgery, I put the money in my special wishlist account, and I hid the ATM card so I couldn’t touch it and that’s how I was able to save for my buttlift, tummy tuck and breast enhancement,” she said.
She said she felt motivated to do the surgery as a gift to herself after seeing a close friend’s body laid out on a cold slab.
“That really shook me up and got me moving. Life is short, you got to go after the things you want,” she said.
Chyn actually felt compelled to have the surgery to legitimize her decision to become an artiste, to move from the sidelines as a manager to being the star in front of the camera.
“I did this for me, I have an awesome personality but my confidence was low because I had a chipped tooth, and I had a child so my tummy needed work and my breasts needed work. I just didn’t look like an artiste so I had to fix myself . I did my tooth first and then I did my body,” she explained.
Most people would have been scared to jump on a plane to a foreign country, where they know no one, to tackle a major new Life experience. But Chyn said she was not worried.

"I wasn’t scared about flying to the Dominican Republic to do the operation. It’s not like they were going to knock me out and take out one of my kidneys ,” she said, laughing.
“These guys were real professionals, they checked my vitals, my liver, my cholesterol and then they did the surgery. I woke up the next day as a new person and I stayed there for 14 days while they made sure I was ok.”
Now, the results are there for everyone to see. When she walks into a room, she sucks out all the oxygen with her bodacious new body and her 100 watt smile.
“My confidence is at all time high, my luxury doll body ah mad dem. I get a lot of compliments all the time now, and I can make my awesome personality shine through,” she said.
