Tummy tuck procedures popular with The Biggest Loser contestants

April 17, 2012 Comments Off on Tummy tuck procedures popular with The Biggest Loser contestants

Many tune in to The Biggest Loser, the maximum-weight-loss series, each week because they simply cannot believe the contestants lose the weight that they do. Hundred-pound weight loss has been seen on the show a number of times, but the aftereffects cause some of these contestants to go under the knife.

When a person loses that much weight in a short amount of time, there is one problem – excess skin. Loose skin can appear on the stomach, arms, legs and back, and after the show has concluded, many contestants visit a plastic surgeon. A tummy tuck procedure is a popular procedure that will give these individuals the confidence boost they worked so hard for.

Shannon Thomas lost 117 pounds on Season 7 and opted for breast surgery as well as a tummy tuck. She said losing the weight left her with "a lot of excess skin and a lot of areas that I wasn't completely happy with. I've come this far, and I just want to put the icing on the cake."
