Celebrities are just like us regular folk.
Some of them go through pregnancies and some of them lose a huge amount of weight. Many of these people choose to get a tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, done to remove excess skin or fat from their abdomen and make their stomachs flatter.
Some of these celebrities have been open about their procedures while some have not openly confessed. Here are some celebrities who either have gone under the knife or have been rumoured to have done so.
1. Angelina Jolie
The actress, film producer and model has been rumoured to have gotten a tummy tuck after giving birth to her twins in 2008. The rumour came about when people started getting suspicious of how quickly she reverted to her pre-pregnancy form, especially since she grew rather wide during her pregnancy.
2. Kate Gosselin
The reality star revealed going under the knife after giving birth to her six children in 2004. She was offered the treatment for free by Dr. Lawrence Glassman. The surgery restored her stomach significantly as it was wrinkly and saggy after her pregnancy.
3. Tara Reid
