Achieving a washboard stomach or “six-pack” abs is no easy feat, and few people have the genes to maintain that sleek and sculpted waistline throughout their lifetime. For many people, the only way to even see the six-pack is to get lean through diet and exercise, and work on strengthening the core muscles. Plastic surgery is also an option, and Celebrity Big Brother housemate Darryn Lyons recently revealed that he underwent plastic surgery to achieve the coveted six-pack.
Lyons has reportedly spent over $21,000 to create a fake 6-pack which gives him the appearance of a washboard stomach. He admits that he underwent a body contouring procedure where a plastic surgeon removes the layer of body fat on top of the abdominal muscles, and tightens up the skin around it to create a slimmer waistline.
He says, “basically it’s the male version of a boob job.” Lyons traveled all the way to Poland for his operation, and he says he is very happy with the results. Recent pictures of a shirtless Lyons reveal more of an eight-pack, and his abdominal area does look slightly out of proportion with the rest of his body because his arms, shoulders and legs aren’t as sculpted.
This type of procedure is often recommended for those who have a stubborn layer of body fat on their stomach and have not been able to achieve the coveted six-pack with their workout regimen and diet. Many women who have had multiple pregnancies are also good candidates for this type of procedure, especially if they don’t plan to have more children in the near future.
