Poor Courtney Love is the target of the tabloids again with a new plastic surgery rumor surrounding her mysterious massive weight loss. An ultra-skinny version of Courtney Love was seen prancing around the beaches of Hawaii recently. Insiders have attributed Love’s 44 pound weight loss achieved over a few months to liposuction or gastric bypass surgery (stomach stapling). The singer is flatly denying these rumors, insisting that her weight loss was accomplished naturally through yoga, a macrobiotic diet. Love says she also took inspiration from Oprah Winfrey’s rapid weight loss through Slim-Fast. Make Me Heal decided to take a closer look at this plastic surgery rumor and see if there is any validity to it.
“I couldn’t get that surgery if I begged for it,” says Courtney love on her fan site MoonWashedRose.com (see the entire post below). Her publicist is also dismissing these rumors, saying “Not true. She says she never got surgery.” Despite denying this new rumor, Courtney Love did admit earlier this year to having fixed a botched nose job – her third nose job now – and to swearing off doing anymore collagen lip injections (Read about Courtney Love’s Rhinoplasty).
Pictures of Courtney Love in two piece bathing suits have been popping up on the web in various positions, sometimes showing her abdomen lined with Tara Reid-like ripples and lumpiness on her stomach. Additionally, there is some excess, lax and loose skin on her stomach, which is normal considering her substantial weight loss. Looking close at the images, it appears that Courtney’s rapid weight loss is not due to liposuction, but rather is due to simple dieting…although Courtney has taken it to an extreme to achieve a somewhat unhealthy, rail-thin look. There are no scars to show any tell-tale signs of surgery and the lumpy, bumpy, and rippled-like effect on her stomach in some photos is likely only due to dieting, not uneven results that can happen from liposuction. In the above photo, the angle in which the singer-actress was taken in also exagerrates the contouring irregularities on her stomach. If one looks at enough photos of Courtney Love in different angles, it becomes quite obvious that cosmetic surgery is not likely to have been the behind her transformation.
As for the claims made by Page Six that Courtney Love has been walking around telling people that she had gastric bypass surgery, it is unlikely that they are true. Gastric bypass surgery is reserved for morbidly obese people who are not able to lose weight naturally, which is a far cry from Courtney Love who is quite young and has the financial muscle to hire fitness trainers and dieticians to help her lose the weight naturally.
We congratulate Courtney Love for trying to get healthy and put behind her drug-infested lifestyle, but we caution her against trying to lose too much weight as she looks a little bit on the thin side in the pictures. But, let’s give her a break – her transformation was not an easy feat to achieve and took some work. Considering Courtney’s compulsive personality, we just hope she will not become overly obsessive in her beauty quest.
Courtney says on her website that she is not done dieting and has “6 more [pounds] maybe 11 more to go.
We leave you off with the somewhat incoherent and spelling mistake-laden message that Courtney Love posted on the fan site:
