Chaz Bono Plastic Surgery Before and After Weight Loss Photos
Chaz Bono Completes Weight Loss with Plastic Surgery
Chaz Bono, the transgendered son of Sonny and Cher, began his weight loss journey as a contestant on Dancing with the Stars a few seasons back. Now, a year after starting to lose weight, Chaz has appeared on the popular television show The Doctors to discuss his transformation and the steps he took along the way.
Since beginning taking steps to lose weight a year ago, 44-year old Chaz Bono has dropped a total of 85 pounds. How did he do it? Chaz has chronicled his transformation in Transition: The Story of How I Became a Man, and revealed his theory that his weight issues stem back to his childhood.
Now, after losing weight through a combination of diet, exercise and diet pills, Chaz decided to undergo further cosmetic surgery to get rid of the excess skin he had as a result of his rapid weight loss. Makemeheal.com reported earlier that often when patients lose weight, they also opt to have skin tightening plastic surgery procedures, as well as liposuction to get rid of the loose skin that can’t be eliminated with just exercise or diet alone.
Although some extra weight does come off with the plastic surgery procedures, a tummy tuck and liposuction, the procedures that Chaz had, are not recommended as weight loss tools and the star was careful to say this during his interview.
“I’m just hoping that I’m going to look that much thinner without the extra skin on me,” he said prior to the surgery.
Chaz opted to have a tummy tuck to get rid of the hanging skin on his abdominal area and in addition to the abdominoplasty also opted to have some liposuction on his neck, resulting in a more defined neck and jawline. Because his procedures involved both his body and face, his plastic surgery was a little longer but most likely enhanced with a plastic surgery recovery kit especially designed to make the healing process, faster and easier and resulting in minimal scarring.
Dr. Ordon also credited Chaz with having a positive mindset that helped him focus on his weight loss goals, which helped makes his journey successful from start to finish.
FamousPlastic.net notes that during the interview the doctors discuss the differences between a tummy tuck for a man and a tummy tuck for a woman. On a man, the goal is to pull the waistline straight down and have a bellybutton with a round shape, whereas on a woman, the waistline is pulled in and the bellybutton is given an elliptical shape.
Prior to his cosmetic weight loss, Chaz had undergone an elective dual mastectomy during his female-to-male transition.
Chaz Bono popped up recently looking like half the man he used to be…He’s lost a ton of weight! The transgendered daughter of Cher went through a gender transition that started in 2008, which included hormone treatments and a double mastectomy. The transition seems to have been successful and not only does Chaz look more comfortable in his skin, he has lost quite a bit of weight!
Chaz was born Chastity Sun Bono and is the only child of the famous couple Sonny Bono and Cher. Chastity began her social and physical transition to becoming the man that she always felt that she was in 2008. In 2010, she legally changed her name to Chaz and her gender to male. Currently, 44-year old Chaz is going through another transformation and is dropping tons of weight! Judging from pictures, it looks like Chaz has lost at least 60lbs in the last couple of years and is looking healthier than ever. It also looks like he is enjoying his new freedom of being able to walk around topless and seems to do so as often as possible ;).
