Egypt Sherrod Weight Loss
Sherrod was always hating her plumpness since she was in her youth. After she gave birth to Kendall, she acquired the baby weight that she gained during the trimesters, and she had to embark on a workout regime and a strict diet to keep her body in shape. Sherrod underwent a CS – Caesarean Section when getting her 2nd daughter. Again, she gained the baby weight and she also had to work on shedding off the extra weight.

Egypt Sherrod Plastic Surgery
On May 9, 2022, Sherrod posted her video while in a hospital bed on her Instagram Page. Her caption explained her breast reduction journey. She stated that she was having breast surgery for the 2nd time “hoping it would be the last surgery.” She said that she was tired of the pains in the back and neck, as well as the migraines caused by tension on her nerve. Sherrod also stated that she was tired of wearing 2 or 3 bras at the same time under her clothes to minimize the appearance of the breasts. For sure, if you take a close look at her past pics, she has on 2 support bras and a minimizer.
Sherrod said that deciding on surgery to minimize her breasts was not a light decision, especially when having 3 daughters who she constantly tells to love the skin they are in. She could not breastfeed because the doctors had to dry her out due to fluid in her lungs. She was home for around three to four weeks and her husband DJ Fadelf has been giving her great care. Sherrod, therefore, did not do any plastic surgery – she did not do any implant, rather she just did a reduction of her breasts.

Olivia had tweeted “Why Egypt Sherrod got her booty done?” and Sherrod replied “I dint…I had a baby over 40!.” According to her caption to the Instagram post, Olivia’s question was a rude one and Sherrod considered it as body shaming.
Her caption stated that she would not let this sit right here for a minute since she has absolutely no shame about her body. She also said that it hits differently when a woman has a baby over 40, so it is very rude and bad to snap back. Also, she talked about the accusations she had when her breasts were surgically enhanced – she said that it is rude and people should stop that!
