In January 2018, Lowry put the brakes on the plastic surgery she had scheduled, taking to Twitter to let her fans know of her decision. She explained: "I won't lie to y'all, I came to Miami for lipo & a boob job. But hours before my surgery, I decided I don't want to go through with it. When I get home, I'll use the money I was gonna spend on surgery for a nutritionist & get back into working out. Damned if I do and damned if I don't."

In another Instagram pic from her Puerto Rico trip, people debated whether Lowry had breast enlargement surgery, with one person noting: “I didn't know she had her boobs done too.” Another fan explained, “they probably look bigger since she had her tummy tuck?

11. Lowry Explains All

In Lowry’s book Hustle & Heart, she spoke of her struggle with body image and her reasons for surgery, explaining: “My decision to get plastic surgery came down to one simple thing: I'm human.
