Cabs are here? More like abs are here. Ronnie Ortiz-Magro decided to undergo laser high-definition liposuction in order to bring back his six-pick, something he has struggled to keep ever since welcoming daughter Ariana Sky in April 2018.
His surgery was detailed on The Doctors and during the Friday, May 17, episode, the hosts revealed before-and-after photos and interviewed the reality star over the phone as he was recovering in bed. In the photo shown just moments after surgery, the Jersey Shore: Family Vacation star’s abs are very defined.
“I’m feeling like complete crap,” the 33-year-old said with a laugh. “I’m definitely excited to show off the new abs.”
Dr. Christopher Khorsandi, the plastic surgeon who operated on Ortiz-Magro, also joined in the conversation to remind listeners that this isn’t the normal liposuction and for those interested, they should be aware that not every doctor can do this procedure: “High-definition liposuction can be dangerous in the wrong hands.”
In February 2019, the Jersey Shore alum revealed exclusive to Us Weekly that he spent a month in a treatment facility for help with depression and alcohol abuse. While receiving help, he also got back into a workout routine.
“They did a lot of self-care there. It’s really about taking care of yourself, eating healthy, going to the gym is a big one,” he told Us at the time. “I try to get to the gym every day. Before it was like, ‘Well, I’ve got to work out.’ [Now], it’s like just get to the gym and release some blood in your body, get it moving. It just makes you feel better and it helps your brain just start going, instead of just sitting there marinating on the couch.”
Us Weekly also followed Ortiz-Magro to the gym where he walked us through his five do-anywhere workouts. However, he also realized while in treatment how important it was to watch what he put into his body: “It’s not about how you look. It’s about how you feel. When you eat healthy, you feel healthy. Then when you look healthy, you feel good.”
