After her weight rose to 16 stone in lockdown and doctors branded her obese, Jessica decided to undergo the operation at Turkey’s Mono Obesity Clinic yet admitted she was scared and concerned.

Prior to her surgery, she told MailOnline: ‘This is more complex and health related. They’re cutting my stomach and I’ll be left with just 25% of my stomach. Hopefully after that I will start losing weight.’ 

‘I have been diagnosed as obese as I weigh 16st [101kg] – i used to be 10-11st [65-70kg] – I am really huge but you can’t see it in pictures.’ 

After going under the knife, Jess said: ’14 days ago I had gastric sleeve surgery due to the fact that I was 102 kilos (16 stone) and my diet wasn’t working.’

‘Having the gastric sleeve surgery was the best I have done as I don’t feel hungry anymore, nor am I craving food.’

She revealed that her gender reassignment process, including taking hormones, had led to her weight gain. 

Jessica said: ‘I attribute my weight gain to all the surgeries I’ve had done in the past two years as part of my transition alongside hormone therapy. The hormones retain a lot of body liquid and that makes me hungry all the time.’

Speaking about her results, she said: ‘After three months I will be able to see drastic results and just one a liquid diet and I’m not gonna feel hungry ever…

‘Obviously the biggest hunger will be removed from the stomach and when I’m thinner I’d like to be a glamour model and explore my femininity.’ 

As well as a diet of detox drinks, Jessica added ‘body massages and therapy’ are also helping her recover, with the star already looking to her next bout of surgery.

‘My next surgeries will be another nose job and voice feminization. But for now I would like to enjoy the summer and take care of myself and my health,’ said Jessica.
