It comes after Alessandra revealed on Thursday she has decided to get reconstructive surgery to remove excess skin following her gastric bypass surgery in 2008. 

Speaking on her Instagram live, she told fans despite deciding she was fine with loose skin, she has decided to undergo surgery to be more confident.

Alessandra explained that during a recent trip to Colombia she met up with a surgeon to discuss getting ‘reshaped and put back together’, and finally deal with her ‘excess skin’.

‘Fourteen years after the fact I’m finally taking care of that,’ she laughed. 

‘I wanted to look into reconstructive surgery because of the loose skin… so I reassessed the decision.

‘I began in May and I will continue early next year after we finish wrapping this next season of MAFS.’

Alessandra said that over the past two years she lost confidence in herself after she packed on several COVID kilos when she stopped taking supplements.

She then admitted to feeling a lot more confident having shed the weight.

‘My intention is not to change myself. I think I look fine,’ she said.

She went on to add that her surgery will provide ‘a certain closure to the trauma behind the weight gain’.

Speaking to 9Entertainment, Rampolla said the experience was ‘literally life-changing’, but she was left surprised after some critics appeared to be openly angry about her weight loss journey.

‘I got a lot of people complaining, “Why did you become thin?” And then before it was like, “Why are you fat?”‘ she said.

‘You know you can never please people, and it’s never about pleasing people – but I was very surprised with the amount of people who were like, “Nooooo, why did you do this?” – it was my health, you guys.’

Alessandra went on to say the procedure – which involves surgically altering the stomach and small intestine – was an ‘incredible experience’ for her.

At the time, she was thinking about potentially starting a family with her now ex-husband John Hernandez, and wanted to become healthier.

However, the pair never ended up having children together.

What is gastric bypass surgery?  

Gastric bypass is a surgical procedure that helps people with obesity to lose weight and improve their health.

The surgery involves decreasing the size of the stomach and changing the way the stomach and small intestine absorb food.   

During the procedure, staples are used to create a pouch in the top part of the stomach. 

The pouch is then attached to the lower part of the small intestine, causing food to bypass most of the stomach and the first part of the small intestine. 

As a result, less calories will be absorbed into the body, while the patient will feel full after eating a smaller amount. 

This procedure is primarily done as a keyhole surgery (using small incisions, but occasionally an operation is required.
