I'm a Michigan-based Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who has been featured on Dr. 90210. The info here is my opinion alone and should not be taken as fact or as medical advice. I've not treated any of the celebrities presented here.

Nicole Richie

Nicole Richie has posted a denial of the recent rumor that she's had a reversal of a reported gastric bypass surgery. According to her MySpace account:

So i gain a little bit of weight, and im acussed of having a gastric bypass surgery reversed? Its pathetic of Page Six to insinuate i have done this. Anyone that knows anything about this surgery would know that legally, you must be AT LEAST 100 pounds overweight to even have the surgery done, and is a serious, life changing procedure; not one to throw around as a joke or a rumor. Ive statement I am in the process of putting on weight, and that should be enough. Its a shame to hear that instead of hearing supportive words, someone needs to spin it into some negative, absurd way.

To my knowledge, gastric bypass surgery is not performed on anyone who isn't morbidly obese. Therefore, this rumor about her supposed gastric bypass is probably as true as the rumor of Britney Spears' post-C-Section tummy tuck.

Hi Dr. Youn,
I couldn't find a way to contact you. I remembered your post about Michael Jackson a few months ago when I saw these. Thought you'd be interested to see them.
guess you were right :)
