Mama June Shannon has undergone quite the transformation, but her journey isn’t over.
On Tuesday night’s episode of Botched, the Here Comes Honey Boo Boo alum revealed to doctors Terry Dubrow and Paul Nassif that she lost “about 150 pounds in a year,” and was hoping to get some of her excess skin removed.
Mama June’s weight loss is quite prevalent in her latest Twitter profile photowhere she’s strikes a confident pose. ET’s Kevin Frazier was one of the first to see the the mother of four’s transformation firsthand when he ran into her on a flight earlier this year. “She has lost so much weight she is now gonna get the extra skin removed …. #goodluck,” he captioned the selfie.
In addition to this procedure, Mama June also spoke with the Botched doctors about the excess scar tissue she has from four C-section surgeries. Dubrow and Nassif were confused that the 36-year-old reality star was told to get a tummy tuck immediately after giving birth.
“You don’t do that. You would never do a tummy tuck on someone who just delivered a baby,” Dubrow said. “The uterus is very large …you could never get the muscles tightened over the uterus, so it’s probably the worst time to ever consider a tummy tuck. It’s never done.”
The doctors were even more shocked about the birth of Alana “Honey Boo Boo” Thompson. Mama June claimed that upon delivering her daughter via C-section, the doctor cut her forehead twice. “In all of life, I’ve never heard of a C-section where a scalpel goes too deep and actually slices into the baby’s forehead. Or even touches the baby’s forehead,” Nassif said. “What kind of doctor did this?”
