Obesity is a problem that not even celebrities are free from, but to counteract its effects, celebrities such as Kelly Osbourne and Graham Elliot resorted to gastrectomy, better known as a gastric sleeve in Mexico.
Being the constant focus of attention all the time is not easy. Unfortunately, celebrities have sometimes come under fire for their physical appearance. On the other hand, some think that bariatric surgery (surgery to lose weight) is an easy way out of the problems of being overweight. But is it really so?
Stay with us to discover and learn what is hidden behind the success stories of some celebrities.
Gastric sleeve in Mexico is one of the most effective and popular weight loss surgery in Mexico, the US, and the rest of the world for its safety and success rate. It consists of removing the portion of the stomach responsible for producing ghrelin (the hunger hormone) that decreases the patient’s appetite and contributes to progressive and constant weight loss.
During the operation, the bariatric surgeon will remove approximately 85% of the stomach and construct a narrow tube or sleeve from the rest. Some advantages of this compared to other procedures are:
After a series of rumors, the actress and singer Sheyla clarified to the media that she underwent gastric sleeve surgery and later a procedure to remove excess skin, also known as skin removal surgery in Mexico. As a result, the beautiful Sinaloa went from weighing more than 661 pounds to just 348, so today, she looks incredible!
Despite the constant struggle to improve her physical appearance, she has never felt self-conscious about her size and does everything for her health. In fact, the complications that she began to have in her back and knees due to her overweight, as well as problems with her thyroid (a gland that controls the body’s metabolism), led her to make this great decision.
“In the family where I come from, they never called me ‘fat,’ they told me ‘You’re worth what you are (…) I don’t feel insignificant next to pretty women because I also have mine”, declared the beautiful actress during an interview.

Unlike Sheyla, since she was a teenager, Kelly Osbourne was the victim of constant ridicule and criticism due to her physical appearance, which, unfortunately, ultimately affected her confidence and self-esteem. That was probably why she followed in her mother’s footsteps and underwent a gastric sleeve in 2018.
“I had to fix my head before I fixed my body,” the singer and former reality star explained during the Hollywood Raw podcast. In order to have a better mental and emotional condition, the actress stopped consuming alcohol and began to go to therapy before the surgery.
Osbourne advised that anyone considering a similar treatment needs to look into it since exercise and a healthy diet are essential to maintain the results of the gastric sleeve Mexico. “It’s not a quick fix for all your problems, but it’s a push in the right direction,” acknowledged the actress, who has lost more than 88 pounds to date and has no regrets about her decision.
Are you trying to lose weight through strict diets and exercise routines, but no matter how hard you try, you can’t reach your ideal weight? This was the case with the famous actress Rosie O’Donnell. In 2012, the actress and mother of 5 children decided to undergo a procedure to lose weight after suffering a heart attack that put her life at risk.
“Surgery is a tool, not a magic pill,” O’Donnell told People magazine in New York. The actress assured that being prediabetic and having such high cholesterol at the age of 51 made her reflect and recover her life to spend more time with her children. Thanks to the gastric sleeve, the actress has managed to lose 138 pounds and is an example that has inspired other people to fight for her life.
Graham Elliot is one of the most famous chefs to have appeared on television shows. However, the problem with all great chefs is that surrounded by dishes full of calories, fatty foods, and unhealthy ingredients, they find it challenging to stay in shape and often gain weight.
“I was physically unable to do things that a father and husband could do without difficulty,” Elliot confessed. At over 400 pounds and with serious health issues (high blood pressure, sleep apnea, and constant discomfort), he realized he was headed for disaster if he didn’t take drastic action.
As his career forced him to taste food samples, at the age of 37 constantly, he opted for a gastric sleeve instead of gastric bypass in Mexico since this procedure allowed him to continue digesting food normally.
“Now I see food as fuel, and I focus on my protein intake,” said the renowned chef. His diet consists of more fruits and vegetables. In addition, exercise is a fundamental part of his daily life, and yes, he continues to eat and savor everything, but in moderation. Graham Elliot weighs just 191 pounds, less than half his starting weight today.
