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."
