According to the insiders, the decision to lose weight via surgery came after years of dieting by the star: ‘She always fluctuates and it makes her upset but it’s hard for her to manage.’
Earlier this week Page Six also reported that the 47-year-old singer and mother of two underwent gastric sleeve surgery. The publication alleged that the Hero hitmaker had ‘became self-conscious about her curves’.
According to Page Six, the ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ songstress was first motivated to lose weight after noticing her extra pounds ‘made it harder to dance’ then she started ‘getting a lot more criticism online from body shamers.’
A source told the publication: ‘Mariah underwent the procedure about a month ago, and she is already seeing some good results, and she feels a lot better.
According to findings, Gastric sleeve surgery reduces the amount of food allowed into the stomach, making the patient feel fuller faster so that they consume less.
