Just three and a half years after undergoing 15,000 worth of surgery, Kerry Katona has had more liposuction.
The reality star revealed she had a secret liposuction operation last week after tiring of the sagging skin around her stomach.
Despite her fitness regime and dieting over the past few years, the 32-year-old found she couldn't do much to improve the elasticity of the skin around her midriff.

She writes in her OK! column: 'Right now I'm high as a kite on painkillers because I'm recovering from a tummy tuck.
'No matter how much weight I lost, I couldn't get rid of a pocket of skin that hung like a kangaroo pouch.'
Last week, the former Atomic Kitten singer spent 8,500 on lipo and a 'tightening' procedure of her stomach, legs and bum at the Hospital Group clinic.
Weighing around 9 1/2st when she went
in for surgery, Kerry is hoping she will lose 1 /1/2 stone taking her
to her goal weight of 8st and giving her 32C-26-34 measurements.
After giving birth to four children,
like many mothers of large families, Kerry struggled to try and reverse
the actions pregnancy had done to her body.

to get rid of her baby weight because she had only given birth to her
son four months earlier.

recently been made bankrupt, MTV footed the bill for her surgery, which
took the 5ft 3 star from 12 stone to 8 stone.

'In the past few weeks, my arms have become super toned. I feel like Arnold Schwarzenegger… but I still hate my stomach.'
She admitted she wanted liposuction 'if I could afford it'… but it appears now she can.
