Star Jones had a tummy tuck and a breast lift after her gastric bypass surgery.
After undergoing gastric bypass surgery, Star says she still had 85 pounds to lose. This time, she says it's no rumor—she lost the weight with the help of Pilates. "When I was on the Pilates machine for the first time, I couldn't lift my legs. There's an exercise called the hundred—I couldn't get through two much less a hundred," she says. "But I wouldn't quit. I did it five days a week. ... And as I did it, I remember my gym pants started to fall off a little bit, and I just started to cry. I knew it was working."

Star says she also had some follow-up surgeries to deal with her new body. "I couldn't get rid of the stomach. I'd gotten rid of all the fat, but I couldn't get rid of the skin," she says. "So [I had] the abdominoplasty, which is commonly referred to as a tummy tuck, because that's not healthy to have skin hanging here. And then for vanity's sake, I had the boobs lifted because they went like pancakes."
