After seeking help from The Doctors for her permanent baby bump, Amy is back to reveal her dramatic transformation!
Last season, Amy shared her struggle with a condition called diastasis recti, where her stomach muscles separated and never fused back together after she gave birth to her third child. She said she felt as though she was carrying around a permanent baby bump for the last seven years.
In addition to living in excruciating and debilitating pain, Amy previously told The Doctors, “I have no control over my stomach, my insides will literally pop out like a bowling ball. I feel and I look like I’m 8 months pregnant… I want to be out enjoying life with my family. My self-esteem is shot. I feel useless as a wife and a mother.”
Following surgery with plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Zarrabi, Amy returns to show off her new body!
“I feel amazing. A year ago, I was at my lowest point. I was very depressed and I was in a lot of pain and all it took was one e-mail message to The Doctors and it saved my life. I’m very thankful and grateful,” she says.
Prior to her surgery, Dr. Zarrabi asked Amy to lose 20 pounds, but she was happy to share – with the help of her family also making serious lifestyle changes – she lost an impressive 37 pounds before her operation. Dr. Zarrabi says without the weight loss her surgery would have been impossible.
Amy tells The Doctors her surgery and weight loss has opened up an entirely new world for her. “I used to hide my body before, I didn’t want to show it and now I have to stand up and be like, this is me!” she says with confidence.
With her new body, Amy had an entire wardrobe that no longer fit her new body. She donated all of her old clothes to those in need. Find out the surprise The Doctors have for Amy that will help her show off her dramatic transformation in the video below!
