Destra Garcia has denied going under the knife to achieve her body.

The soca star took to social media today to refute any rumour that she’s had cosmetic surgery. This, after a picture of her in a YUMA costume set tongues wagging over her ripped stomach in particular.

Some social media users accused the singer of getting Liposuction on her stomach but today Destra claimed it was all the result of hard work.

“A year can make a world of difference! Hard work pays off! Thanks to my trainer who has helped me sculpt this body, for the last 15 years. Before, during and after pregnancy. I battle with my weight constantly because I love to eat everything, but I know when to behave and when to stick to the programme,” she wrote, posting up a picture of herself a year ago next to her most recent Carnival photo.

“I have a high metabolism as you all know and I’m highly self-motivated and focused. Last year I was leaner but this year I’m meaner! I won’t stop until I’m satisfied when I look in the mirror. Thank you Steven @ibodlimitededition for all your hard work with me, I complain but you are the best! not that I have to address it, but I might as well since we’re on the topic, NO SURGERY HERE. Just hard work! And next year I’m going to look even more amazing!” she declared.
