Biggest Loser star Danny Cahill undergoes tummy tuck, reveals results
October 13, 2010
Last year, Danny Cahill, a participant in NBC's The Biggest Loser, shed a record-breaking 239 pounds, falling from a weight of 430 lbs to 191 lbs. However, his drastic weight loss left excessive flaps of skin on his chest and abdomen.
His story was so inspiring that the plastic surgeon host on the show, The Doctors, offered to perform cosmetic surgery on Cahill in order to remedy this problem, so that he could fully enjoy the benefits of his weight-loss efforts.
Cahill accepted the offer and recently showed-off the results of his 9-hour total body lift or body contouring after massive weight loss surgery on an episode of the show. The procedure effectively flattened his stomach, slimmed down his chest and removed over ten pounds of excess skin from his weight.
On the program, Cahill said that he now looks forward to running his third marathon, because he no longer has to worry about the extra skin hanging from his body.
The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery states that body contouring after massive weight loss surgery reduces the excess skin and fat left behind from the expansion of skin and then the loss of fat and tissue elasticity after major weight loss.
Those who are considering the procedure should be sure to consult with a board-certified surgeon. The ASAPS website offers patients resources and guides to help them with their cosmetic surgery needs.
