Michelle Visage is opening up about her experience with plastic surgery.

In an emotional episode of Facebook Watch's popular talk series Red Table Talk, the longtime Drag Race judge and RuPaul's best friend sits down with hosts Willow Smith, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Adrienne Banfield-Norris, who talk about the rising trend of BBLs (a.k.a. Brazilian Butt Lifts) and the effect societal pressures have on women's self-image and self-esteem, and their decision to undergo pricey, oftentimes dangerous, plastic surgery procedures.

"The Brazilian butt lift is the fastest growing plastic surgery, but also the most dangerous," the episode's official description reads. "In this eye-opening RTT, Jada, Willow, and Gammy explore the dangers of the BBL with a top plastic surgeon who reveals why he refuses to do them. Then, RuPaul’s Drag Race star Michelle Visage shares the dangerous side effects of her signature breast implants, and why she made the bold decision to have them removed."

In the episode, Visage even recalls the wise words Mama Ru told her about the way in which he wished Visage saw herself.

"My whole life, I was the same way, I always wanted to shave it," Visage recalled, remembering how when she was younger, she wanted to reduce the size of what she calls the "Hungarian Hump" of her nose. "It was RuPaul who said 'I wish I could see yourself through my eyes. I wish you could see yourself through God's eyes."
