Chaz Bono: Plastic Surgery

Chastity Bono is a gay rights activist and daughter of Cher and Sonny Bono who has recently appeared on the hit television show Dancing With The Stars. Bono has recently achieved fame due to her ongoing female-to-male gender reassignment surgeries. Bono has admitted in her memoirs to having had a bilateral mastectomy breast removal, tummy tuck and liposuction. In addition to possible hysterectomy and genital reconstructive procedures (GRT) to create a penis, it has been rumored that Bono may opt for the plastic surgery procedures of rhinoplasty and eyelid surgery to create a more masculine look.

Chaz Bono: Liposuction, Tummy Tuck

Chaz Bono has recently won the battle of the bulge, dropping an incredible 85 pounds through a combination of vigorous exercise, diet and diet pills. Revealing all in his memoir Transition: The Story of How I Became a Man, the famous transgender son of Sonny Bono and Cher has revealed that now after slimming down, he has opted to undergo further cosmetic surgery to remove the excess loose skin that developed as a result of his weight loss.

Specifically, Chaz has opted for a tummy tuck to rid himself of the loose skin around his abdominal area, as well as liposuction in the neck area to give himself a more defined neck and jawline. It is not surprising that Chaz has decided to undergo these procedures since it is not uncommon for many patients to have skin-tightening procedures done; skin-tightening procedure are recommended to get rid of loose skin that diet and exercise simply can't.

Make Me Heal commends Chaz on achieving his weight loss goals, as losing the pounds leads to a healthier lifestyle overall and he no longer has to worry about the adverse effects of obesity, including high cholesterol, high blood pressure and glucose levels. Make Me Heal hopes that Chaz used a plastic surgery recovery kit and that he continues to lead a healthy, active lifestyle.

When Chaz Bono made his transition official, his mother Cher was accepting, but rumored to be worried about his weight, not his gender. Now that Chaz is dropping the pounds, plastic surgery could be the next order of business.

43-year-old Chaz Bono weighed over 250 pounds last year and has lost 40 pounds since promising to lose weight on an episode of The Doctors. Now the Dancing with the Stars alum has upped the ante to lose a total of 80 pounds, which is a tremendous amount of weight.

What Plastic Surgery Will Cher’s daughter Chastity Need To Become A Man?

The following article is reprinted from Make Me Heal's Celebrity Plastic Surgery News. The article, along with photos can be found at the following link: Chaz Bono's sex change.

Chastity Bono, daughter of pop royalty Sunny Bono and plastic surgery fan Cher has recently announced her intention to become male via a sex change and henceforth be identified as Chaz. With a sex change often comes plastic surgery to help the patient’s outside better match their inside. Makemeheal.com speculates which plastic surgery procedures Chastity will need to become Chaz.

Over Chastity’s adulthood, Cher’s daughter has transformed from a cute blonde girl (pictured right) to a short haired masculine-looking woman with tatoos and a clothing getup of a dude (pictured left).

Transgender procedures usually begin with living as the other sex, as well as hormone therapies and may or may not include eventual surgery. Surgical procedures usually take years to complete and may or may not encompass: bilateral mastectomy (breast removal), hysterectomy and genital reconstructive procedures (GRT) to create a penis. Among the plastic surgery procedures that are done include a rhinoplasty to femininize the nose, eyelid surgery, lip injections to plump up the lips and other procedures aimed at making one look more feminine.


Dr. Paul S. Nassif, a Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon and Rhinoplasty Specialist in Beverly Hills, Calif., said, “For a male to female transition, it is easy to know what kind of plastic surgery to do. You feminize the male with a cute rhinoplasty, brow lift, upper blepharoplasty, lip injections, etc. For a female to male transition, you would need to anti-feminize. In this case, I am guessing that Chaz probably doesn’t have any facial plastic surgery.”


Plastic surgeon Dr. Jennifer Walden explains, “Chastity has made the decision to embrace her identity as a male. The process may be done over an extended period of time in which many different procedures might be performed. Depending on the size of her breasts she may opt to have bilateral mastectomy to remove all of her breast tissues to obtain a more contoured flat chest. For gender reassignment she may or may not undergo a hysterectomy to remove her uterus, and then a penile implant may be done through phalloplasty as the final step of the overall process.”

If Chaz does have surgery, he will be following in his mother Cher’s footsteps (See Make Me Heal’s story on Cher’s plastic surgery).

In terms of sex reassignment surgery, it is easier to perform male to female transformations, which is why intersex infants are usually assigned female genitalia.

Manhattan plastic surgeon Dr. David Shafer reveals, “In terms of anatomy it is much easier for a Chaz to become a Chastity. However, it is possible for a Chastity to become a Chaz, but will require more extensive constructive surgery.”

The 40-year old female to male announced his decision via his publicist, Howard Bragman, who said, “Chaz, after many years of consideration, has made the courageous decision to honor his true identity.”

“He is proud of his decision and grateful for the support and respect that has already been shown by his loved ones.”

“It is Chaz’s hope that his choice to transition will open the hearts and minds of the public regarding this issue, just as his “coming out” did nearly 20 years ago.”

Recently, Cher said, “Chaz is embarking on a difficult journey, but one that I will support. I respect the courage it takes to go through this transition in the glare of public scrutiny, and although I may not understand, I will strive to be understanding. The one thing that will never change is my abiding love for my child.”

Make Me Heal wishes Chaz the best of luck in his new life, whether or not it involves plastic surgery.
