Queen Latifah on her Breast Reduction

Tuesday, October 30th, 2007

The latest issue of People magazine has an interview with Queen Latifah, where she discusses her breast reduction surgery in 2003:

What were you before? “An E or an F cup. I was pretty big. Now I’m like a DD. I wanted to be a triple. They took one D too many! So that was hard to deal with. And there’s scarring and stitches.”

I find it unusual that a breast reduction patient asks to be a DDD after surgery. Most of them ask me to be a C or even a B, which often doesn’t proportionally match the rest of the body. Health insurance will often pay for this surgery, but most patients need to have documented pain with removal of over a pound off each breast to be approved. Women who have less than a DD or DDD cup size usually don’t get insurance coverage.

I think Queen Latifah’s breasts look good. They seem to match her body. She does probably have scars which extend around her areolae, vertically down to her breast crease, and horizontally under her breast. Most scars fade considerably with time, and often end up as a faint line.

Queen Latifah to Open Fat Burger…My Favorite!

Monday, July 16th, 2007


Queen Latifah is planning on opening up a Fatburger restaurant in Miami in the near future. I had my first Fatburger in Las Vegas, and subsequently had quite a few during my time in Los Angeles. While most Californians rave about In ‘N Out, I’ll take Fatburger any day. Their steak fries leave In ‘N Out’s soggy spuds in the dust.

On another note, does anyone know what plastic surgery Queen Latifah is on record for having had? I mentioned it on the E! show “Celebrity Plastic Surgery.”
