Original story (11/8/17 at 10:09 a.m. ET):
Mariah Carey is debuting a brand new figure, just in time for her favorite season of the year.
The Queen of Christmas has reportedly undergone weight loss surgery as 2017 comes to a close, in part because she was upset by critics making negative comments about her weight.
And we'll be honest, girl looks kind of amazing.
Over recent years, the 47-year-old's weight has fluctuated dramatically, and critics and mean-spirited fans online have taken notice.
We're sure her dramatic breakup with billionaire James Packer didn't help matters!
Now, though, the megastar has undergone a drastic, irreversible surgery that will help keep her weight under control forever.
The mom of two underwent gastric sleeve surgery about six weeks ago, Entertainment Tonight reports.
The procedure permanently shrinks the size of the stomach, causing the patient to inadvertently eat less.
"[Mariah] always fluctuates and it makes her upset," a source told the site.
"She lives in denial about it; she has the tags cut out of clothes, so she can be blissfully unaware of her size."
But MC seems to be owning her svelte new bod, which she debuted last week, November 1, at her hand and footprint ceremony at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.
And the "All I Want for Christmas Is You" singer has a lot going in the coming months, so it's great she'll be looking and feeling her best.
Nick Cannon's ex will be concluding 2017 with a series of Christmas concerts at New York City's famed Beacon Theater.
She's also voicing a character in the new animated movie titled after her famous Christmas song from 1994.
2018 is gearing up to be a biggie for the Grammy-winning singer, too, as she moves her Las Vegas residency from Caesar's Palace to The Venetian beginning March 2018.
TheJasmineBrand reports Mariah underwent the weight loss surgery in part because she noticed she was having a harder time dancing at her live concerts, so hopefully her surgery will give her that extra kick she needs to perform at her best!
