Iggy Azalea had plenty of things to be thankful for this year, including the birthday of the man who helped her realize a dream of having the body she's always wanted. The 26-year-old "Fancy" rapper posted a loving Instagam photo with Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Ashkan Ghavami, the physician who performed rhinoplasty and breast augmentation on her. 

"Happy birthday @DrGhavami It might seem obvious I'd hold the man I owe my fabulous nose and breasts to in high regard," she wrote next to a photo with the buff doc. "But vanity aside; Ash you're hilarious as hell, talented, eclectic, a progressive thinker & someone who supports women in their choice to do what they want with their OWN bodies (tons of men don't share that sentiment). So cheers to you! I'm proud to call you my friend."

 

Ghavami returned the kindness, writing, "Thank you a mill for everything!" alongside the same photo of the pair. "Your bold confidence is to be respected! My BDay is complete. Those like you who stand apart and trailblaze their own path no matter who tries to block or impede it, ALWAYS come out ahead, most importantly for themselves." 

 

In an interview with Seventeen magazine last year, Iggy confirmed that she'd gotten work done on her nose and breasts, saying, "I'm not denying it. Denying it is lame. I don't think you should be ashamed if you made a change to yourself, which is why I've spoken about the changes I've made, like with my breasts." Fans have been awaiting word of a release date for Azalea's upcoming album, Digital Distortion, which has been previewed over the past year with tracks including "Azillion" and "Team."
