During the season finale of the E! show “Rich Kids of Beverly Hills,” EJ Johnson shared with his friends and the world that he was planning to have weight loss surgery. Johnson said that he has struggled with his weight all of his life and was ready to live a healthier lifestyle. The surgery, in his words, would give him “a push and work on becoming a new me.”
“A lot of people think it’s the easy way out, but it’s not. It’s a step in the right direction, just a big push. I feel very mature, kind of in the right place for it and I’m very ready to look cute. The surgery is a huge deal for me and it will certainly be a positive change.”
Well, Johnson went through with his plans, having gastric bypass surgery in early August. A source told E! News that Johnson had the procedure done right after the reality show finished filming. Gastric bypass makes the stomach smaller so that you feel fuller faster. And the surgery has been successful because you can already see the changes in Johnson’s appearance. He’s definitely dropping the pounds quick and he looks happier than ever. Check out more images of Johnson’s new look below.
