From Not To Hot star June Shannon attained her insane weight loss through multiple cosmetic procedures.
Considering that the show's in its second season and seemingly revolves around her body's transformation, fans and viewers have one major question:
Is June Shannon planning on getting more cosmetic surgery?
At her heaviest, June Shannon weighed 460 pounds.
Her surgical procedures began with the installation of a gastric sleeve in 2015. The sleeve was a device that limits foot intake by physically restricting one's stomach capacity.
It's an extreme option for portion control.
Beyond that, she made changes to her diet and also began working out with a trainer.
She also had a tummy tuck, a breast lift, and had excess skin removed from around her arms and neck.
(For some people who experience extreme weight loss, the excess skin that lingers after they worked so hard to lose weight seems like a sick joke. It needs to be surgically removed)
The results are that June is about 300 pounds lighter than she was.
Speaking to InTouch Weekly, June Shannon shares her plastic surgery plans. She starts by talking about her current weight.
"People think that I'm going to gain the weight back."
Sadly, it's not uncommon for people who've lost large amounts of weight to regain at least some of it. The body is resilient and believes that it needs fat stores to survive.
But June says that she's going to be an exception.
"But hello, I've almost been at this [weight] for a year and a half and I'm not gaining!"
That is quite an accomplishment!
And her present stats are ...
"My current weight is like 165 to 170."
That really is a loss of about 300 pounds. Most people don't have that much to lose -- or wouldn't still be alive if they did. She's really transformed herself.
June credits her change to the tremendous changes that she's made in her lifestyle.
"I just try to watch what I eat and exercise when I can."
She keeps motivated, too.
"I don't ever want to go back."
With that kind of determination, you might wonder if she plans to go under the knife again, if need be.
But June's response sounds very determined.
Well, that's not ambiguous.
So she has zero plans to get further plastic surgery, for weight loss or otherwise. Good to know.
She says that she's done enough.
"I did what I wanted to do and that’s it!"
Of course, not all medical treatments are elective.
Recently on From Not To Hot, Mama June Shannon was going blind -- losing all vision in her remaining good eye.
As it turned out, the issue was her retina -- which was fixed with surgery.
She had to walk around with an eye patch of sorts for a while and was advised to use a walker in order to get around safely.
But obviously, that's a medically necessary procedure. Not the same thing as weight loss surgery or getting extra skin removed.
