The Biggest Loser winner opts for tummy tuck surgery
25 November 2011Winner of reality television show The Biggest Loser has opted to undergo a tummy tuck to complete her weight loss transformation. Olivia Ward, winner of The Biggest Loser Season 11, was left with large amounts of loose skin following her dramatic weight loss as a contestant on the programme. The show follows the progress of contestants who are morbidly obese and who have failed to lose weight by themselves, and the results are often dramatic. Olivia lost 116 pounds (eight stone and four pounds) to become the winner of the show but was left feeling deflated when her skin didnt shrink too. She decided to have a tummy tuck procedure to remove the large folds of skin on her stomach and following the operation told Access Hollywood that she is delighted with the results. Olivia had consultations with a board-certified plastic surgeon before undergoing the four-hour operation and during the eight week recovery period.
