Stephanie Benson Schools Trolls Who Insist She Went Under The Knife, Shares Her Painful Breast Cancer Procedure

UK-based Ghanaian jazz singer Stephanie Benson has replied to some trolls who insist that she went under the knife to get a flat stomach. The troll insisted that Stephanie undergo liposuction surgery to achieve the perfect-looking shape she has now.
However, in a rebuttal, the mother of five decided to educate her haters about the stress and surgical procedure she was forced to undergo after she was diagnosed with cancer.

Let me clarify to all who don’t like to read or understand facts.
In 2015, I was diagnosed with cancer, and after my double mastectomy, to reconstruct my breast, the surgeon suggested I gain weight (at least 10kg) to enable him to harvest fat from my stomach and buttock area to reconstruct my breast to a C cup or more after my EE cup breast was removed to save my life. Unfortunately, after 6 months of unhealthy eating, I was only able to put on 5 kg.
The surgeon advised me he would only manage to give me a B cup because there wasn’t sufficient skin and fat to reconstruct my breast and give me a reasonable breast size, but I was happy to go ahead and achieve a resemblance of breasts after my double mastectomy due to cancer.
The surgeon took skin and muscle from my stomach and fat from my bottom to reconstruct my breast. A surgery that came with lots of complications.
Why I chose to have a reconstruction after having an elective mastectomy for cancer was entirely selfish.Not many women get to have that luxury after cancer. Every day, I’m grateful that I had the ability to do so.
In a perfect world, I would love not to have had cancer. I would have loved to have had my original breast. I would have preferred not to have had a life-saving hysterectomy, which, as most women would say, “strips any chance to feel like a woman.”
I had a breast reduction in my pre-cancer years.
My body is made up entirely of muscle and a healthy diet.No one achieves that under the knife. If it makes you happy to think I consciously opted for plastic surgery, the answer is, I could, I can, but I didn’t. That option was taken away from me when cancer came into my life, but it is an option I would never take to achieve the body I think I want.
I breastfed five children, then won the Ms. Figure NASSA Body Building South East, UK 2001, and survived cancer.
I’m not the only one, but I think I did pretty good.
