Colombia’s highest selling recording artist for 2011 and the country’s most popular vallenato star, Silvestre Dangond, undergoes surgery yet again, this time with a lipectomy to slim down his belly region.
According to a report by Caracol, the surgery was one of the scariest things that the infamous vallenato star has done in his life.
Luckily for the Colombian crooner the surgery was apparently a success and Dangond will be spending the next 25 days recovering in hospital.
“There’s been no problems. What the public are saying now is pure speculation. Up until now, I’ve been recovering fine,” said Dangond from his hospital bed.
Lipectomy is an invasive form a surgery that is apparently just like a “face lift for the tummy”– It involves the cutting of an incision around the back and belly area, the removal of the excess fat and skin from the abdominal region and then the closing of the incision.
With his newly reconstructed belly and his unfortunate groping-of-a-little-boy incident firmly behind him, it seems like the vallenato star is headed back to the top.
