‘The Biggest Loser’ Contestants Choosing Tummy Tuck Surgery
Reality television show, The Biggest Loser, takes overweight and obese Americans and turns them into “the biggest winners” by motivating and pushing them into a healthier lifestyle.
Contestants end up losing massive amounts of weight, especially those who make it through until the end and possibly win!
Each week you watch their bodies transform, but there is one transformation that goes on behind the cameras. Whether motivated by weight loss or the big cash prize, contestants end up with a lot of extra skin that they don’t want hanging around. Since this is true, a tummy tuck after weight loss is often times the only solution to this problem.
A healthy diet and exercise plan is key to shrinking those pounds but it won’t shrink your skin. Receiving abdominoplasty surgery from our tummy tuck New York City or Long Island, New York surgeons can do the shrinking for you.
There’s No Way That Can be Comfortable!
For the contestants on The Biggest Loser, their skin has done a lot of stretching to cover the 200 – 400 pounds of weight they had packed on. So now that it’s all gone, it’s as if they are wearing an oversized sweater for their skin.
Some contestants have commented that the excess skin is a constant reminder of who they used to be, making it difficult to really put it all behind them.
One contestant, Amy Cremen who appeared in Season 6 of the show said, “I was more uncomfortable in my new skinny body than in my heavy body.” She eventually made the change and underwent liposuction on her thighs, breast augmentation, and ultimately a tummy tuck.
