Jania’s Botched Plastic Surgery

Jania supports body positivity and changes any part that one is not comfortable with. She decided to change how her breasts looked by performing plastic surgery. During that process, she experienced some problems that nearly cost her life. 

The procedure went well, but her surgery on one breast caused a fatal blood clot to form in her bloodstream after a while.

 In an interview with DJ Smallz Eyes, she said;

“I got a blood clot, and they were like, you know… If I didn’t get it fixed, it could cause more problems. They had the whole implant upside down, so I felt it in my armpit and couldn’t really lift this arm, it was just the worst experience. When I went back to get it fixed it was still messed up.”
