Donna D’Errico of Baywatch, 49, on her four plastic surgery procedures in a day

Donna D’Errico, 49, is a former Baywatch babe and although I really don’t remember her I thought I would cover this for the plastic surgery angle. D’errico had a bunch of surgery in one day and showed off her before and after looks on Inside Edition. She detailed exactly what she had done too, which included an arm lift, tummy tuck, liposuction on her arms and back and fat transfer to her booty. All the procedures took four and a half hours. I don’t know, I would be afraid to do that after seeing any of the Kardashians. Here’s what she told Inside Edition and she also has before and after photos and a review of her plastic surgeon on the surgery review site, RealSelf. There’s a video of her segment below. (It aired some time ago but it’s news to me.)

“I feel really uncomfortable with the loose skin that hangs,” D’Errico said, adding: “I can almost tuck my skin [from my stomach] into my pants like a shirt and it’s not a good feeling.”

A few weeks ago, she turned to Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Obeng for four cosmetic procedures that she had over the course of just one day.

“My end goal is to be in my swimsuit and be out on the beach,” she said.

Inside Edition was there on the day of the surgery. D’Errico was extremely nervous.

“I am panicking,” she said. “What if my heart stops?”

But despite her anxiety, she underwent the procedures: Liposuction on her stomach, arms and back; a tummy tuck, a butt enhancement and arm lifts.

Dr. Obeng was able to remove about two liters of fat during the liposuction, which he reinjected to round out her backside.

During the tummy tuck, he removed several inches of loose skin and tightened her skin around her ab muscles.

After four and a half hours, the surgeries were completed, and she was wrapped in tight bandages to reduce swelling.

Nine weeks later, the results are incredible.

During a beach photo shoot where she rocked a red bathing suit, D’Errico told Inside Edition that “it feels like a trip back in time.”

The total price tag of the procedure is just as astounding as her before-and-after photos: $55,000.

One of my cousins has had multiple procedures like this, but in several separate visits, after losing 300 pounds (really, it’s amazing) with gastric bypass. She had a tummy tuck, skin tightening surgery and breast implants and she’s very happy with it. She was just telling me about it this week. Her advice was to interview several surgeons and do your research. The amount of options and procedures which are available are fascinating to me, but I don’t know if I could get anything done at this point. My boobs are really deflated and I have been considering it, but I think I’ll just wear padded bras, save the money and not have to deal with the recovery. Maybe if I worked in front of a camera or if someone paid me to advertise their services (as I assume was the deal here) I would be more open to it. As it is, it sounds like a lot of pain and expense for something that’s only temporary and with varying results. Plus what if you have complications afterwards? That’s how Kanye West’s mom passed away. Those surgeries aren’t without risks. That said, D’Errico looks great and the results seem worth it for her. My cousin does too.

    I saw these dress/cardigan photos last week and how incredibly youthful she looks. At least she admits having surgical help to achieve it.

    • Belle Epoch says:

      I’m not sure we’re getting the whole story. Nothing done to her face? Sudden major boobage? She looks unbelievable but I think there were other procedures too. It must have hurt like hell.

      • Christin says:

        Her face does look more taut. Maybe nipping in the waist accentuates the chest?

        My hairdresser had a breast and eye work done the same week, and she wished she’d done them further apart. She was just trying to reduce time off from work.

  2. It'sJustBlanche says:

    Well she looks good, but she didn’t look that bad before. Pretty sure this doesn’t count as a career revival, however.

    • DystopianDance says:

      How cool would it be if they were just normal aging “bay watcher” bodies out there in bathing suits with kids and travel weary stories. And would love a plot about one character going for all those surgeries then hopping off the table at the last minute, putting that 150k into her own “back to college” fund. I’m not watching a film glorifying a pain drain. I find this all disturbing and anti-feminist. Eeesh.

  3. Eleonor says:

    Her arms looked good even before to me…
    Hollywood is an awful place.

    • Cherry says:

      “My end goal is to be in my swimsuit and be out on the beach,” she said.
      That makes me very, very sad. Apparently we’ve gotten to a point where a beautiful 49-yo woman thinks she has to have 4,5 hours of surgery on her body before she can go out on the beach in a swimsuit. That’s f#cked up, you guys.

    • swak says:

      It’s just not Hollywood. I hear so many advertisements for liposuction, and this and that. We just can’t age gracefully any more.

      • Slowsnow says:

        This is so depressing. I am incredibly sorry to say this as I don’t like to be negative, but it looks like I can dress her up and have her play with Ken in Barbie’s pool. This does not look good. Why would anyone want to look generic and plastic?
        To have a nice enough 50 y o body you have to be on a constant diet all the time, like Victoria Beckham and the like.

      • DystopianDance says:

        I went back to college at age 45 and PLEASE please let me believe aging is a beautiful thing. Please save me from thinking a 20yr old’s tush is the answer. It ain’t easy to grow up late in life, but there but for the grace of God go I- thinking that physicality is ALL THERE IS.

    • Nameless says:

      She looked like she gained a bit of weight and then lost it. I didn’t think she looked bad before surgery. But I wonder how it would feel to make a living on my looks like she did. She probably had producers telling her what to eat and what exercises to do. That’s ​got to stick in your head over the years. I think of my normal level of awareness of my bodily flaws and times them by a thousand!

    • Lookit says:

      And she doesn’t even have the career to warrant that type of maintenance! I live in a Stepfordy place ad many of the women have that type of surgery so they can look hawt at the soccer games and aisles of Whole Foods.

  4. AlmondMilk says:

    She looks amazing.

    Her doctor just got some slammin’ publicity.

    Seems like I saw a pic of her once several years ago and she looked decidedly matronly. Now she looks early thirties.

    But boy when they are shoving that long vacuum wand in and out it looks horrifying. 4 procedures were a lot to take on. She was in good shape to come out of that. Must have had a stress test.
    Also lets remember her body wasn’t that out of shape to begin with. She had a great body already just fat in places she didn’t want it. Bet bruh have her a nice new butt though.

    By the way, the Kardashians didn’t do just fat transfers – they have major ginormous butt implants.

    • sendepause says:

      I think her doc agreed to free/discount/sponsored procedures for this exact PR.

    • Aren says:

      IDK, I wouldn’t go to a Dr. after seeing he did surgery procedures on a woman wearing make-up. That surely doesn’t help to create an sterile environment.
      I even cringe when I see doctors injecting botox on women wearing foundation, it seems very wrong.

  5. HadToChangeMyName says:

    She looks good. I have no beef with plastic surgery; only with people who lie (ie Kardashians).

  6. trollontheloose says:

    she looks fantastic. Her face is youthful as well. I don’t know if I would have the guts to do everything at once but maybe for these procedures the time of healing is shorter as opposed to breasts or butt implants. Still, ever since I saw Heidi Montag doing all at once I wonder about doctors telling that they just have to book 4 to 6 hours instead of appointments spread on a month. But it makes sense: better suck it up and be in pain for a few weeks

    • Erandyn says:

      Maybe it’s so you only go under general anesthetic once? Otherwise you’re getting the same amount of invasive work done but 4x the anesthetic? For all you know, you shouldn’t have that more than once every few months and would have to space it out over a year or something. (Idk, I’m guessing)

  7. Anon says:

    I can’t hate on her at all. She actually looks amazing.

  8. Lala says:

    Man what’s up with good ol’ fashioned exercise?!

  9. Ellie says:

    Hey if she’s got the money! She looks amazing. Really youthful. And despite the butt injections, not Kardashian-like, which is just more proof of the ridiculous (-ly bad) work they’ve had done. I’m sure their plastic surgeon gets a ton of business from their publicity and I just DON’T get it. If I ever want to go under the knife, give me her or Jennifer Aniston’s doc’s number please.

  10. roses says:

    I remember her, she used to be married to Nikki Sixx but she divorced him. He tried to drag her thru the mud in their court battle but she prevailed and moved on with her life and quietly raised their daughter. She looks really good but she looked pretty good before she had this surgery in my opinion.

    • Chetta B. says:

      Just so afraid to let go of her Playmate looks and body. Insecurity is all, and also profoundly shallow I think. In the photo with her arms raised she looks like she’s about to cry because of her “horrible” arm fat. Oh my God, talk about having your life turned upside down. I mean get a grip, woman, some of us have real problems.

  11. teehee says:

    I agree with others– she looked great before.
    However havin been through a procedure myself, I can kind of get why youd want to do it all at once. Its hard on the bod, and why not bundle hard times into one hard time only. But 4? Anything more than 1? Why find that many flaws in yourself….

  12. AG-UK says:

    She has a pretty face and looks great. Her butt looks normal too, unlike KK..

  13. sendepause says:

    ” ‘My end goal is to be in my swimsuit and be out on the beach,’ she said.”

    One might think her goal is attainable in two easy steps — (1) put on swimsuit, (2) go to the beach — but oh well women are not supposed to look like regular mortal people…

    • thaliasghost says:


      I have no interest in researching this person but I hope she is not in any way raising a child. Normally, I would say give the poor woman a tissue and emotional support showing her she is loved and valued however she looks. But the first sentence in my head was ‘I hope somebody slaps that fool around good, she deserves it.”

      I have to think of so many great women doing great stuff. I don’t know, Connie Britton always campaigning for a great cause. Then there is a woman promoting plastic surgery before going to the beach while female.

  14. QQ says:

    Me and my GF have a Joke: when we get fed up of looking old and ugly We are gonna Go to DR and Come back with ONE “Whole Body Overhaul” surgery The Expression is” I WILL BE TOUCHED FROM TIT TO KNEECAPS, MARK MY WORDS… But We’re also gonna have to work as Bottle Waitresses to make the money back” LOLOLO this is what we mean ( I KNOW it will be had to be clarified.. cause you guys… but We are not serious, we are mocking the Shade Room Staple girl du jour) , Excellent work whatever, I mean she is being public about it, it was well done, she got lucky it wasnt a Heidi Situation on recovery for her *shrug*

  15. KBeth says:

    At least she’s being honest about the surgery, I can’t stand it when celebrities lie & claim they look this good “naturally”.
    That dress she’s wearing is awesome.

  16. cake says:

    I’d be terrified of the pain, but she looks good.

  17. Nic says:

    Just had breast reduction 2 weeks ago for back problems. Still recovering. I don’t think I would be willing to go thru this kind of pain again for a rounder butt. Just the thought of my current pain x 4 is horrific.

    • WTF says:

      I think that is in my future. The pain medicine doesn’t control the pain? Is your doctor stingy with it? I need to be basically numb until I’m healed

  18. Northern_Girl 20 says:

    I just lost over 70 lbs and had a breast lift 4 weeks ago. I love it but I’m still sore and wouldn’t want to go through that many operations at once. I’m happy with the rest of my body but my breasts were really bad – saggy and deflated (from a DDD/EE to a C).
