Jessica had an $80,895 makeover in Beverly Hills, where she had weight loss surgery, liposuction, a tummy tuck, and new red hair colour.
She now weighs much less than the 246 pounds (111 kg) she weighed before the operations. Her experience with the procedure, she said, was life-changing. According to her,
"It's been life-changing. I wouldn't trade it for the world. The thing that bothered me the most about myself was my stomach. I never liked it. I didn't like how big it was and how it hung. Me and my sister would go out and do something, and I would change five-six times because I felt like I couldn't find something that actually looked decent on me, or I turned around because I thought somebody was judging me."
"It's been a real strict diet and it's completely different from what I'm used to, but I'm starting to enjoy it. I'm more confident in myself. I'll go and wear a tight fitting shirt or something super cute and not have to worry about my stomach bulging out. I really enjoy the way that I'm turning out to be."
