Mama June Got Skin Removal Surgery to Go With “Half Body” Weight Loss
However, the more we hear about the 37-year-old’s transformation, the more crazy it sounds!
June apparently has gone to major lengths to improve her physique — including a major surgery, which she just revealed in an interview.
No, not the previously-announced gastric sleeve surgery, which she underwent last spring and helped her to lose “half of my body.” This one came after that...
The reality TV matriarch was originally rejected as a candidate for skin removal surgery last fall, being told she was still too big for the procedure.
However, Alana’s mama tells RadarOnline.com, after the weight loss surgery, diet, and exercise, she was finally able to go through with it.
Removing this excess skin is sure to have made a big difference for the Southern gal, who once tipped the scales at over 400 pounds. She doesn’t need all that skin anymore!
Though we don’t know the full weight loss number yet, the former Marriage Boot Camp star maintains she’s cut her size in half.
She gushes, “I’ve lost at least half of my body. People said yeah that I look good, so I took it to the extreme like everything else.”
Aside from the surgeries and exercise, diet has been a huge factor in this big makeover, to be unveiled on Mama June: From Not to Hot later this month.
For those familiar with the family’s old TLC show, you know that means no more sketti and cheese puffs.
“I haven’t ate a lot of pasta, no fried foods, and baked goods stuff like that,” she shares.
Then again, sounds like she does indulge in the occasional cheat day.
She adds, “I’m not perfect, but I do give it my 100 percent. Trust me, I’m not eating salads all the time! We do live in the South!”
It sounds like it’s paying off — and not only for her, but also her four daughters, Alana, Anna, Lauryn, and Jessica.
“The girls have lost a bit of weight, too,” she says.
Still, when you tune in, you should expect the same old June.
“It hasn’t changed my life dramatically,” she details.
“The only difference is that people are able to see the way I look now. Before, I used to be told you couldn’t tell when I lost weight. But now I know I’m the s—t and you can't tell me nothing!”
Mama June: From Not To Hot premieres Friday, February 24 at 10 p.m. ET on WE tv.
