Iggy Azalea has always been open about going under the knife to help achieve her gorgeous looks.
So it’s no surprise the Australian rapper looked picture-perfect when she stepped out to catch an NBA game in Miami on Sunday.
It was the 32-year-old’s first public appearance since being bedridden for almost a month following a back injury she sustained on tour.

Despite her health woes, the hitmaker was glowing as she laughed and smiled courtside.
Iggy has undergone a number of procedures over the years, from a nose job and a breast augmentation to a rumoured chin implant.
Recent photos of the Grammy nominee show a totally different person compared to the Mullumbimby-born beauty who first arrived on the hip-hop scene in 2012.
In images taken when Iggy was in her early twenties, she sports noticeably thinner lips, a larger nose and a flatter chest.

She worked closely with celebrity plastic surgeon Dr Ashkan Ghavami to achieve her stunning look.
Back in 2016, the Sally Walker rapper thanked Dr Ghavami for her ‘fabulous nose and breasts’.
Speaking to People magazine at the time about Iggy’s transformation, Dr Ghavami said he wanted to make sure her look wasn’t ‘too obvious’.
‘Her breasts were super small and super wide apart, so I wanted to bring them towards the middle and give her a lot more cleavage, but not go too big where it looks obvious,’ he explained.

‘When you have small breasts and you have thin skin above it, when you go too big they look like balls, so I wanted to create as natural shape as possible, but give her enough size to proportion her tall, big-hipped frame,’ he continued.
‘I wanted to proportion her out without making her look top-heavy or getting in the way of dancing.’
But there was one major issue with the surgery: Iggy was due to perform at the American Music Awards with Jennifer Lopez just four days after going under the knife.
‘I do a flash-recovery breast augmentation,’ Dr Ghavami said, explaining that the procedure was quick.
‘There’s no bleeding, no bruising. I don’t put drains in, I don’t wrap you tight. You can lift your arms right away, and all we give is Motrin. She was really excited about that aspect of it.’
Before and after: Iggy’s face has certainly changed a lot over the years, as demonstrated by these photos taken in September 2012 (left) and September 2019 (right)
When it came to Iggy’s nose, Dr Ghavami said it had a ‘really weird shape to it’ and he had to work very carefully to reshape the tip and reduce a hump.
‘I had to do a lot of tip-shaping to narrow and refine her tip without it looking “done”,’ he said.
Iggy has openly admitted to going under the knife, previously telling Elle Canada: ‘That’s just the reality. And I think more people need to admit that s**t so it doesn’t have to be so taboo – because we’re all doing it anyway.’

Despite copping to a nose and boob job, Iggy has never admitted to enhancing her famously voluptuous derrière.
‘No, I don’t have bum implants!’ she told hit105’s Stav, Abby & Matt in 2017.
Speaking to Sway Calloway on Sway in the Morning before that, Iggy said: ‘Of course the butt is mine.
‘I heard it’s not a real butt, I’ve heard it’s a number of things. I heard sometimes it’s my underpants. I heard it’s implants. All kinds of crazy things.’
