When Beyonce sings, the world listens.
When ‘Vogue’ magazine featured her cover story on FUPA, it stirred up a storm of sorts. Even those who were not her great fans responded by appreciating her openness on a taboo subject.
It set the internet on fire. Soon celebrities, sportspersons, fitness trainers, nutritionists, and fashion designers began discussing FUPA. Here is valuable information that could help you get rid of FUPA in a celebrities’ way.
Body Shaping: Craze In Adopting Celebrities’ Methods
The body features of celebrities are always lauded all over social media. They flaunt the results of their rigorous workouts. They show off their success with cosmetic treatment methods.
Male and female fitness enthusiasts try therapies, body supplements, and treatment methods endorsed by celebrities.
Through Instagram, Tik-Tok, Facebook, Tumblr, etc., people compare their body’s imperfections and assess their fitness goals in comparison with their celebrity idols.
The reasons for this craze could lie beyond scientific reasoning. But people tend to believe “what works for my idol works for me.”
Beyonce’s Interview: The Meaning And Consequences
Interestingly, this trend took a positive turn with the cover story by Beyonce in ‘Vogue magazine.’
Importance Of The Interview
Celebrities talking openly about an unwelcome body condition was unheard of until then. Along with skills in singing, Beyonce was also loved for her curvy shape.
But in the ‘Vogue’ interview, Beyonce demolished many barriers.
Females have had FUPA for centuries. Still, they were hesitant to speak about it.
For instance, celebrity personal trainer, Trent Langlands, says this about FUPA: “I have never had a client come to me about that area.”
Beyonce opened the floodgates.
But first, excerpts from the featured interview:
1. “I think it’s important for women and men to see and appreciate the beauty in their natural bodies.”
2. “I have a little mommy pouch, and I’m in no rush to get rid of it. I think it’s real.”
3. “Whenever I’m ready to get a six-pack, I will go into the beast zone.”
- Until then, a fatty upper pubic area was considered by females as an unwanted side effect after a delivery. After Beyonce’s story, they started respecting their bodies.
- FUPA was considered a defect that a female should be ashamed of.
Beyonce erased that thought from their minds.
- FUPA was considered a stigma.
Beyonce helped them realize it was a natural body change.
Females began to accept and live with it and speak openly about FUPA. Then, they started seeking treatment methods to get rid of FUPA, including both natural means and invasive and noninvasive techniques.
FUPA: Causes, And Why It Bothers Females More?
Pregnant females may put on weight after delivery. Unavoidably, the excess fat settles in the lower abdomen.
As per CDC, for pregnant females with a normal BMI or in the 18.5 to 24.9 range, the spike in weight could be around 25 to 35 pounds. And for mothers who carry twins, it could escalate up to 54 pounds.
Even if you attempt the usual home-based diet and exercise methods to destroy FUPA, getting rid of it is tougher. Therefore, like all females, you explore possibilities to eliminate it through surgical and non-surgical methods.
FUPA: What Celebrities Say And What They Have Tried
With liposuction topping the list in surgical treatment to cure FUPA, Dr. George Bitar, a board-certified plastic surgeon from Fairfax, Virginia, says: “one who has excess fat only in the pubic area can go for pubic liposuction.”
TV Personality and Author Brandi Glanville underwent laser liposuction for her FUPA: “I wasn’t cut open, and I was awake the entire time.”
Minimally Invasive Procedures
A few of the other popular personalities who tried minimally invasive methods say:
- American media personality Khloe Kardashian: CoolSculpting for removing stretch marks
- American media personality Sonja Morgan: CoolSculpting to treat lower stomach
- American model Molly Sims: CoolSculpting to treat leftover abdominal fat
- e-publisher Ashleigh Morley: SculpSure
Celebrity Motivational Comments About Body Shapes
The internet is full of stories of celebrities pouring their thoughts about irregular contours and aesthetic imperfections.
Some of their own words:
Female star Lena Dunham: “haters are gonna have to get more intellectual and creative with their disses.”
Pop star Lady Gaga: “I’m proud of my body, and you should be proud of yours too.”
Actress Jennifer Lopez: “I earned that jiggly belly.”

American Singer Courtney Love said: “I don’t need plastic in my body to validate me as a woman.”
Celebrity Trainers’ Recommendations: Body Weight And FUPA Removal
As fitness training is an integral part of overall body fat reduction as well as FUPA removal, listen to what the experts have to say:
- Fitness Expert Robin Behl: “There’s no such thing as spot reduction, but some basic and fundamental movements can help you build a strong foundation.” He recommends skipping, squats, push-ups, mountain climbers, and leg raises to be included in the regular exercise regime.
- Fitness Trainer Harley Pasternak (trainer for Model Kim Kardashian, Actress Megan Fox, and many celebrities): “Invest in a Fitbit. Net carbohydrates to be 40 grams per day.”
- Holistic Expert Vicky Vlachonis (Trainer for Actress Cameron Diaz): “fresh produce in the house” and “enough sleep”
- Personal Nutritionist Heather Bauer (Trainer for American TV personality Tyra Banks): “drink more water.”
- Fitness And Wellness Expert David Kirsch (Trainer for Liv Tyler, American Actress): “Avoid dairy.”
Weight Reduction Techniques: Celebrities’ Way
The weight reduction strategies employed by celebrities could work well for FUPA destruction too. What they eat or drink and what they condemn could help you.
Here is the list of celebrities with their diet plans
- Hollywood star Khloe Kardashian: Avocado, ginger, watermelon, tomatoes, and oats
- Hollywood star Kourtney Kardashian: Green tea
- Brazilian model Camila Alves: Pureed foods, yerba mate tea, almond milk, berries

Fashionista McKayla points out that dressing appropriately is a celebrity way to fight FUPA.
“High-waisted pleated pants to cover your lower belly.” “If you add something that has shoulder pads or puffy shoulders, it will add more attention up top.”
Dressing Tips: Well-tailored dresses can shift the attention of your viewers from your lower abdomen and distract it to other parts. By this, you can mask your flaws and accentuate strong points.
- Dark colors draw attention to your face
- Vertical stripes make you look slimmer
- A low-contrast print showcases your upper body more than lower
- Scarves worn around the neck, draw attention up over the face
- A sash covers the waist area but also show your body in a new form
Jewelry: And finally, remember, a piece of sparkling jewelry that you wear can grab the attention of your audience. Intentionally, you can distract your audience from your FUPA.
Beyonce has started the trend. If more celebrities admit irregularities and imperfections openly, it could psychologically motivate more females.
Though surgical and nonsurgical methods outlined here can be helpful, females should be encouraged to gel with the “flaws are fine” philosophy.
Before embracing the approaches tried by celebrities for FUPA reduction, one must be forewarned that what works well for one need not work for another.
Body constitution is uniquely different from one individual to another.
