Under the knife!
T.I & Tiny: The Family Hustle star Tameka Harris (aka Tiny) has really changed since her early days of fame. It’s safe to say these before and after pictures prove that the R&B singer owes her transformation partially to plastic surgery.
First coming into the spotlight in the ‘90s with the group Xscape, Tiny received major recognition for her writing and singing abilities. Then after marrying longtime boyfriend T.I. in 2010, she skyrocketed to reality star fame with their hit VH1 show. But with growing fame often comes changing looks.

The 41-year-old has come clean and defended the various procedures she’s gotten. In an interview with Wendy Williams, Tiny talked about her growing curves, specifically her booty.
“It’s a little bought,” she said, referring to her bottom. “[And my boobs] are bought. I’ve always had a lot of boobs but, you know, after three babies, they sag.”
Tameka also came clean about one unique plastic surgery procedure: eye implants, which changed the color from brown to ice grey. Though she received backlash over the procedure, the famous mom stuck to her guns on the decision to alter her eye color.
“I looked in the mirror and I was, like, ‘They’re amazing,’” she said on Good Morning America in 2014. “They go into the eye and they make a little slit. They take an implant and it's folded up. They open it [and] spread it over your eye.They told me that the procedure was going to be quick, five to 10 minutes an eye. They woke me up. It was very blurry, then it kind of fades in.”
The reality star was forced to travel to Africa for this risky procedure as it is illegal in the United States due to dangerous repercussions that could include glaucoma, cataracts, bleeding in the eyes, and corneal problems.
But after undergoing the surgery, Tiny took to Instagram to celebrate the success.
“Huge thanks to the incredible doctor(s) for the amazing experience and for making my dream come true! I hated wearing contacts just for the color and it made my vision blurry!” she captioned the pic. "Blessed to say my vision is #perfect after my #ice-gray implants! Special thanks to the #Brightocular staff for ALL that you've done to make this process happen, you're amazing & thank you to the hospital's staff for your exceptional customer service as well!!”
It seems as though Tiny isn’t letting any haters bring her down. “I just wanted to do something different. I have the right to do that,” she said on GMA. “It’s my body.”
