During his first surgery, he went under the knife for 2 hours, where doctors removed two pounds of excess skin from the lower portion of his body. He endured another 5 hours of surgery and 500 stitches. Following his first surgery on his abdomen area, Austin went underwent another procedure that addressed his chest and back.

Austin says his month long recovery was tough as it kept him out of the gym while he healed, but shares that he’s back continuing with his fitness regime.

Dr. Zemmel explains that Austin’s surgery was both cosmetic and functional telling The Doctors that the work on his abdomen area was essentially a tummy tuck that wrapped all the way around his body.
