Has Elise Neal had Plastic Surgery?
48-year-old Elise Neal is owning up to her decision to have her breasts enlarged. Unlike other stars, the actress has no problem confessing to having plastic surgery before. Interestingly, not only did she admit about undergoing a cosmetic surgery, she also claimed that 75% of African American women in the show business have had something done. She stated: “Maybe it’s not breast enhancement but I’d say at least 75% of them have had their noses done and they cannot tell me that they haven’t. I’m sorry.”
Of her decision to have breast augmentation, she said: “Being a person who’s had plastic surgery I think it’s personal choice.” She then added: “I did my breast enhancement for me. But it didn’t have to do anything with acting. It had to do with being a performer. They were always hiring the girls who were more voluptuous.” Neal’s breast implants were quite obvious that her admission clarified previous claims about her plastic surgery.
