Season 8 “The Biggest Loser” fan favorite Amanda Arlauskas is maintaining her weight since her time on the popular television contest. But to get over her final weight loss hurdle, the pretty blonde says it will take plastic surgery.
22-year old Amanda Arlauskas lost 87 pounds on her season of The Biggest Loser, but she isn’t done yet. Amanda suffers from a condition known as lipedema, in which fat deposits collect in her legs. In order to get rid of the excess weight, Amanda says she is planning to undergo liposuction. After liposuction, Amanda hopes to wear dresses that show off her new shape.
Once Amanda has experienced liposuction recovery, she may also want to consider further plastic surgery. Drastic weight loss usually results in loose skin which can only be tightened through surgical means. Amanda may want a lower body lift, breast lift and arm lift to help get rid of loose hanging skin in those areas.
TIP OF THE DAY
After Amanda has plastic surgery such as tummy tuck or liposuction to remove sagging skin and excess fat, she can continue to slim and shape her body by using shapewear garments (http://www.makemeheal.com/mmh/product/shapewear/index.vm?procid=30) that instantly give you a slimmer appearance.
Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Salzhauer says, “Amanda Arlauskas from the Biggest Loser certainly must be thrilled over loosing all that weight and having a new slim body. However, she is probably not thrilled about any excess loose skin which I am sure she has as a result of such extreme weight loss. A lower body lift, breast lift and Brachioplasty (arm lift) are the most common plastic surgery procedures for patients that have experienced such a large amount of weight loss. Since Amanda suffers from lipedema, which is excess fat deposits in the legs, having liposuction could reduce her symptoms significantly.”
Dr. David Shafer, celebrity plastic surgeon in New York City says, “Lipedema is often a debilitating condition. Treatment can include a combination of liposuction and skin lifting procedures. Patients with extreme weight loss often need enormous amounts of skin removed.”
“I’ll always be bottom-heavy, and I know that,” she says, “but I just want to find something, and hopefully plastic surgery is it, because I hate my legs so much. I’m praying for something, because it’s like you’ve come this far and you deserve to be able to flaunt it. I just want to be able to wear a dress and show off my legs and not be so humiliated by them.”
Makemeheal.com congratulates Amanda on her weight loss and continued dedication to a healthy diet and exercise.
