Singer K. Michelle took to Facebook on Sept. 1 to talk about getting vaccinated and noted she was afraid the vaccine would react negatively with the silicone, The Jasmine Brand reported.
There have been cases of people who’ve had plastic surgery or fillers who’ve experienced side effects after being vaccinated for COVID-19. According to the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery, women who were vaccinated with the Moderna vaccine experienced temporary swelling in areas where they had fillers.
Michelle was concerned because she has had several surgeries to remove silicone implants from her body and had been ill for some time. The singer said she worried about taking the vaccine just when she’s beginning to get back her health after having 16 surgeries and several blood transfusions.
“Silicone and the vaccine don’t mix well together. It makes you extremely sick. So, I have to make a decision about fighting a sickness when I’m just getting healthy again and the chance of what the vaccine might do to me — because you never get silicone out of your body! It’s not what you think it is. Sixteen surgeries later, four blood transfusions later. Yea, I’m not gonna be myself — but y’all don’t care until somebody die.”
Michelle has previously admitted to having illegal butt implants and had several surgeries to remove the silicone. In an attempt to have a body resembling a Coke bottle, Michelle said that she had her breasts done, fat from her stomach put into her behind, and got her hips done. She experienced an embarrassing episode while dancing on Instagram live after it appeared that her butt injections burst.

The former Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star first noticed a problem in 2017 when she began to feel fatigued and suffered from migraines. She also experienced pain, and her doctor found that the silicone had spread down both of her legs. The silicone also caused tissue damage, and the singer needed more surgeries to remove dying and dead tissue.
“He thought that you could go and suck it out, but it spread it,” she said “It’s definitely a new procedure, so he didn’t know. And at first, it seemed to work. I went on tour about a week and a half later … but after a few performances, I was rushed to the emergency room. It’s the scariest thing in life, and I’m a tough girl. I had these lumps and I was very disfigured.”
While the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery noted side effects for those being vaccinated who’ve had implants and fillers, they still recommend getting the vaccine. They say the inflammation experienced with the vaccine can be easily be treated while COVID-19 can be deadly.
