Aiko Melendez was not ashamed of the enhancements she went through
Actress Aiko Melendez revealed the enhancement procedures she did on her body to improve her physical look.
Enhancements or cosmetic surgeries are not a new thing in the entertainment industry. Good looks and pleasing physical appearance are considered assets of celebrities. They have somehow an unwritten responsibility to look good always.
In this modern age, going under the knife has someone made its way to more people’s understanding unlike decades ago when this was something that the public is not ashamed to talk about anymore.
In a recent interview, based on the article in GMA Entertainment, Aiko Melendez admitted that she underwent several procedures. “Aminado ako medyo madami tayong in-enhance diya,” the actress said.
However, the 47-year-old actress, who is now under the management of Ogie Diaz, stressed that she did not change anything on her face but in her body, some procedures were made.
“Sa katawan, ‘yan, aminado ako, medyo madami tayong in-enhance diyan. I went through liposuction. ‘Tapos, nagkaroon din ako, alam mo ‘yung intestine natin nilagyan ng rubber band. LAP-band ang tawag diyan, ganun din ako,” Aiko said.
This procedure involves placing a silicone band called the Lap-Band around your stomach. This reduces your stomach capacity and slows the passage of food through your stomach. Because of this, you tend to eat less.
“‘Yung food intake mo konti lang. So, parang pagka na-achieve mo na ‘yung weight na gusto mo, ‘yun na lang ano. Kasi, sanay na ang tiyan mo. Kasi, if you go beyond that ilalabas ko siya,” she said.
Aiko also stressed that living healthy is important, especially now that she is getting older. She needs to think about her two children, Andre and Marthena. Aside from her kids, the actress said that her audience deserves to see her looking good.
Aiko Melendez shared that when she reached 40 years old, that was the time when she decided to take of herself and become healthier.
