With Brooklyn rap star Lil Kim making headlines this week for raising eyebrows at a New York City fashion event, celebrity plastic surgeon Dr. Anthony Youn claims the hip-hop diva has gone under the knife one too many times.
In Youn's opinion, Kim's infatuation with plastic surgery is starting to catch up to her.
"Lil Kim looks like a big mess. Her face and body appear to have transformed into a different person entirely," Youn, who has not treated the star, told RadarOnline.com in an exclusive interview. "I suspect that she's had a lot of plastic surgery, including a nose job (or more than one) that's thinned her nose to the proportions of a popsicle stick. ... Her face appears contoured and has a waxy sheen. It appears that she's undergone injection of fillers as well. ... Her body is much more curvy, and could have undergone enhancement with solid silicone buttock implants. Her overall appearance makes me concerned that she has a serious body image problem."

The rapper's appearance has also caught the attention of bloggers and websites who noticed her eyebrows seemed missing.

Recently, Kim spoke on allegedly getting targeted on rap rival Nicki Minaj's "Stupid H*e" record.
"I didn't even know, who is that, who?," Kim playfully said when asked for her opinion on Minaj's Grammy Awards performance. "[How do I feel about 'Stupid H*e?] I'm pretty sure I feel the same way everybody else feels right about now. [laughs] You know. If you have to make a song called 'Stupid H*e,' you must be a stupid h*e." ("Watch What Happens Live")
