Former teenage witch Melissa Joan Hart recently lost a considerable amount of weight, leading Make Me Heal to wonder if witchcraft, exercise, or plastic surgery was responsible.
Always fighting the battle of the bulge, Melissa gained much of her weight during her pregnancies. Since unflattering swimsuit photos of her from last summer made tabloids, Melissa lost a reported 43 pounds, whittling her weight down to 113 pounds, perfect for her petite 5’2″ frame.
After giving birth to sons Mason, 3, and Braydon, 14 months, Melissa made the decision to lose weight, inspired by her friend and actress Jaime Pressley, who also has a young son.
Many actresses turn to liposuction and other plastic surgery body contouring procedures to slim down quickly. However, Melissa reportedly took 14 months to lose the weight, so she may have done it on her own, with good old-fashioned diet and exercise. But she may have used Smartlipo or liposuction for the finishing touches on stubborn fat areas that simply do not go away with exercise.
New York plastic surgeon Dr. David Shafer says, “Melissa certainly looks great after her weight loss. It is quite possible that she was assisted with lipo or Smartlipo, but could also achieve results though a sensible diet and regular exercise.”
Melissa says she slimmed down with help from nutritionist Derek Johnson at New Metabolism to change her diet and worked out with her trainer Mark Harari at Pulse Fitness Studio.
Dr. Paul S. Nassif, a Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon and Rhinoplasty Specialist in Beverly Hills, Calif., said, “Due to her young age, I would guess that Melissa Joan Hart probably lost the weight naturally. She looks great. Cheers to her.”
Plastic surgeon Dr. Jennifer Walden says, “Melissa Joan Hart may have had liposuction to aid her in losing weight after the birth of her two children but it is difficult to tell from her magazine cover. Melissa is still a fairly young woman though so it is entirely possible she bounced back to her bikini body with diet and exercise.”
Given her high level of motivation and her youth, it is likely that Melissa that didn’t use plastic surgery to get her body back.
Plastic surgeon Dr. Sherrrell J. Aston says, “I do not think that Melissa Joan Hart had any plastic surgery procedures to achieve her post-baby body. It looks to me like she did it through diet and exercise. I would advise her continue with the balanced diet and daily workouts. In addition to her routine I would add a breast lift in the future.”
However she shed the pounds, Melissa certainly looks bewitching on her revealing People Magazine cover.
