Couple days back, T.I.’s wife Tameka Harris, otherwise known as reality star “Tiny” participated in an unorthodox surgery to change the color of her eyes from brown to ice grey.
Rapper T.I’s wife, Tameka “Tiny” Harris, caused a social media frenzy when she debuted the results of her eye color surgery. The reality star traveled to Africa for a highly controversial procedure that permanently changed her brown eyes to gray.
For those who aren’t aware, here’s how the procedure went down. According to Tiny’s surgeon Dr. Menif Montasser, this is an implant surgery.
“This surgery is done under local or general anesthesia with three incisions, one is 2 millimeters and the other two are 0.8 millimeters in the eye’s peripheral. The implant is folded in to an injector, then it’s injected in the eye after filling the eye with viscoelastic.”
The procedure is illegal in the United States, and doctors consider the operation extremely dangerous. Risks include blindness, glaucoma, scarring and cataracts.
When asked why she chose the drastic change, Tiny states: ” I just wanted to do something different…I have the right to do that. It’s my body”
“I permanently changed my eye color with Brightocular and lovin it,” Harris wrote in an Instagram post. “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! Blessed to say my vision is #perfect after my #ice-gray implants!”
