Mama June Shannon was famous for raising her daughter Alana Honey Boo-Boo Thompson and finishing plates of spaghetti noodles that were topped with loads of butter along with ketchup. Finally, Mama June decided that it was the time for some Mama June transformation as she wanted to lose her weight drastically so that she could make herself healthy and fit. The wedding of her ex-husband, Michael “Sugar Bear” Thompson was closing in, and she went through a number of surgeries while documenting the entire process in one of the popular WEtv series. The very first episode showed Mama June being taken for the surgery. She agreed that she would look different, but she was scared about it.
Mama June was close to the end of her struggle of losing weight and finally, her surgeries were going to come to a halt. This gave her the feeling of being like Frankenstein because of the marks all over her body, and she has revealed things about her transformation, finally. The story of Mama June transformation has undoubtedly inspired people from every nook and corner of the world. Mama June went through one of the most complicated skin reduction surgeries that went on for five hours. She did this for completing the transformation of her physique. The matriarch, aged 37, had tried to reduce her weight to size four after she got the surgery to place a gastric band. And she indeed managed to shed around 136 kgs in her bid to get the weight and physique she had dreamt of. Her two children, Honey Boo Boo and Pumpkin were in Georgia, and they were desperate to hear about their mom, as the surgery was going on for five hours.
The surgeon admired and praised her, stating that a person can plan anything that they want to, but they do not really know what they do until they have reached that point. But there were large amounts of excess skin on her body due to the weight loss process that she had gone through. The surgeon warned that Mama June’s surgery would take more time than usual because of the excess skin, and this surgery could also lead to complications. When Mama June woke up from the strong anesthetic, she looked worse than usual. Before the surgery, she stated that she was very worried about the changes on her body and looks after she would wave goodbye to the “batwing arms” and the “turkey neck.” She also revealed that she would definitely miss her neck as she was not able to gain as much popularity as her neck did.
Currently, Mama June and her entire family, which includes all her fans as well, will see her transformation soon and decide for themselves whether her effort to drop the extra pounds has been successful or not. At first, she had to go under the knife in order to reduce the excess pounds of skin that were present on her stomach. However, it was extremely painful and she could not continue this regimen for long. She became even more upset when her doctors finally removed the bandages, and she looked down at her new body. She stated that she believed that a surgery would look better, but unfortunately, it had only worsened her condition. She said she had started to look like Frankenstein and she hated the fact that she went through a surgery.
Mama June is popular from her Here Comes Honey-Boo-Boo days, and she has lost an enormous amount of weight.
