I had no idea. I remember a few years ago there was a rumor that LLCool J and other men well known for their six-packs had work done. I assumed they meant some lipo.
Well I happened to see that lovely show "Dr. 90210". An up and coming rapper said he need help. He didn't like to take his shirt off during his concerts. He did work out but he had a three-pack instead of a six-pack. I didn't see what the big deal was but he was fixated on "his problem".
I can't remember the medical term but his plastic surgeon had also had the same procedure. When the doctor lifted up his shirt I was freaked out a little bit. He was maybe in his mid-40s but he had the LLCool J six-pack. It looked strange.
After the surgery the rapper had the abs he wanted.
I think people famous for their abs who have had this surgery should freaking come clean. There are men who spend hours in the gym trying to get the same shape and it will never happen without surgery. Also many times the abs are "sprayed" on. Britney used this make up technique a lot. Sometimes it wasn't applied well and you could tell.
It's great to be in shape. Most of the men I have dated were very athletic, either playing during school/college or as adults in tennis or soccer leagues. However if I met a guy who had this abs surgery I would be turned off. That is too vain and weird to me. It's as bad as the over Botoxed forehead that doesn't move.
LL is almost 50. (ooops I stand corrected I've been told he's only 41).
