How former 'Baywatch' beauty Donna D'Errico got her beach body back


Donna D'Errico appeared to have returned to her Baywatchera when she posed in a skimpy red swimsuit on the beach, but how did she do it?

Just a few months ago, the 49-year-old actress was incredibly insecure about her body, especially the flesh that jiggled under her arm, she told Inside Edition.

"I feel really uncomfortable with the loose skin that hangs," D'Errico said, adding: "I can almost tuck my skin [from my stomach] into my pants like a shirt and it's not a good feeling."

A few weeks ago, she turned to Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Obeng for four cosmetic procedures that she had over the course of just one day.

"My end goal is to be in my swimsuit and be out on the beach," she said.

Inside Edition was there on the day of the surgery. D'Errico was extremely nervous.

"I am panicking," she said. "What if my heart stops?"

But despite her anxiety, she underwent the procedures: Liposuction on her stomach, arms and back; a tummy tuck, a butt enhancement and arm lifts.

Dr. Obeng was able to remove about two liters of fat during the liposuction, which he reinjected to round out her backside.

During the tummy tuck, he removed several inches of loose skin and tightened her skin around her ab muscles.

After four and a half hours, the surgeries were completed, and she was wrapped in tight bandages to reduce swelling.

Nine weeks later, the results are incredible.

During a beach photo shoot where she rocked a red bathing suit, D'Errico told Inside Edition that "it feels like a trip back in time."

The total price tag of the procedure is just as astounding as her before-and-after photos: $55,000.
