Mama June's plastic surgeries could have cost her more than $50K


Mama June Shannon insists that she paid for her multiple weight-loss surgeries herself, and now ET has an estimate of how much it could have cost her.

"I have to pay just like everybody else," Mama June recently said on iHeartRadio's The Domenick Nati Show.

The reality star's journey from a 460-pound figure to a size 4 is currently being chronicled on her docu-dramedy, Mama June: From Not to Hot, but she says the new series isn't the reason for her going under the knife.

"With or without cameras, I was going to do this journey no matter what," she said.

BACK TO SLIDE

Mama June admitted that her main motivation was the breakup from her ex, Mike "Sugar Bear" Thompson. When she found out that Sugar Bear was engaged to his new girlfriend, Mama June wanted to show off her new revenge body at the wedding.

WATCH: EXCLUSIVE: Mama June's Weight Loss Surgeries Revealed -- How She Went From 460 Pounds to a Size 4

Her gastric sleeve surgery (approximately $16,800), breast lift (approximately $5,000), tummy tuck (approximately $10,000) and skin removal surgery on the arms and neck (approximately $20,000) could have cost her upwards of $50,000.

But her surgeries were only part of the process. Mama June also switched up her diet and hired personal trainer Kenya Crooks to keep her in shape.

And Mama June says her hard work has had an impact on her 11-year-old daughter, Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Thompson, and the rest of her children. So would Mama June encourage her kids to go through the same journey as her?
