Sharon Cuneta undergoes cosmetic surgery to remove excess skin: 'Hindi naman nakakahiya'

Sharon Cuneta bared that she underwent cosmetic surgery to remove excess skin, noting there's nothing to be ashamed of.

Cuneta made the revelation in the Sept. 17 column of Pilipino Star Ngayon's Salve Asis, saying she doesn't want to hide it as there's no reason to.

“I had reduction sa breasts ko because it was all skin. So, ‘yung tinanggal, mostly skin," she said. "I don’t want to hide it, there’s no reason to. Hindi naman nakakahiya."

The Megastar noted that stress also made her lose weight. Without elaborating on what caused it, she said the stress began about two months ago, when she and Alden Richards were filming for their upcoming movie.

"May nag-cause sa akin ng stress. ‘Wag na nating ibalik, ‘wag na nating pag-usapan,” she said, adding that it led to "forced diet" in which she didn't have an appetite despite wanting to eat.

Cuneta said she also had surgery on her arms, as her skin was "sagging."

“I lost so much weight, over a hundred pounds," she said. "Naturally, mas sagging ‘yung skin. So, I had arms surgery. Nagpatanggal ako ng balat."

Sharon began her journey to good health and body love in January 2016. She said it was “on and off” or even “more off than on” in an Instagram post in March 2021. 

In a March 2022 vlog with Dr. Aivee Teo, she shared that she decided to get serious with weight loss when she started seeing progress on the scale and fitting into her old clothes. At the time, she revealed she already lost around 80-85 pounds. 

The singer stressed the importance of being disciplined, trusting the process, and doing it for good health. “Enjoy yourself because you only live once but also remember that life is short,” she said.
