Did Corazon Kwamboka undergo body contouring surgery?
Liposuction, also known as body contouring, is a surgical procedure that uses a suction technique to remove fat from specific areas of the body such as the abdomen, thighs and hips.
A surgeon makes incisions not more than an inch long into the body and uses a cannula to suck out the fat from problem areas.
These surgical incisions leave behind open wounds that heal and turn into scabs then scars in the weeks after surgery; and for some patients, the scar may be small but highly visible because they are darker than the person’s skin color, and may fade after six months.
Nairobi News became curious about liposuction after noticing a dark scar on Instagram influencer Corazon Kwamboka’s lower tummy region, leaving us wondering if she had undergone body contouring surgery after having two kids within 16 months and still spotting a slim waist despite her lower body and derriere growing substantially. Via cesarean section, Ms Kwamboka had her son in August 2020 and her daughter in December 2021.
A self-confessed gym rat, Corazon spotted a slimmer waist after her pregnancies and was often hailed for her snapback game. However, anyone who has undergone a CS surgery to give birth will testify to spotting a mommy pouch, also popularly known as a fatty upper pubic area (FUPA), that won’t go away no matter how much gym work was put in. General weight loss after birth by CS for a patient would often result in a hanging tummy but this is yet to be spotted on Ms Kwamboka when she wears her revealing body contouring clothes or tight sportswear.
On January 19, 2023, Corazon Kwamboka posted a video on social media where she was advertising her sportswear. It was easy to notice a sizeable, round dark mark on her lower tummy because rarely does Ms Kwamboka expose her lower waistline- she is often pulling up gym tights to cover her waist or wears clothes that hide her waistline.
In the same video, she also quickly lifted her tights over her waistline. With this quick motion
to cover up her tummy and the noticeable scar, is it possible that Ms Kwamboka has been flaunting a surgically enhanced fire waist?
We ask this because the dark mark on her tummy is often a feature- right down to the location of the scar- among people who’ve undergone abdomen liposuction and such marks are often left behind after the incisions cut by surgeons into patients’ bodies heal.
