Just found out tonight that Bart Millard (lead singer for the band MercyMe) got a sleeve back in January (4 days after me) and has lost 88 lbs so far!

Any other celebrities known to have a VSG?  I'm assuming they wouldn't want it known....but just curious.

Back in my pre-op days, I remember coming across the brother of Seann William Scott from American Pie who had sleeve surgery. His video on You Tube is called, "Brother of Hollywood Actor gets a Gastric Sleeve". His name is David.
Not really a celebrity himself though but as close as I've come across!

I've wondered this too. We hear about celebrities getting gastric bypass but I've only heard of Nate Newton getting sleeved.

I've wondered if British television icon Stephen Fry had WLS, though he says he lost his weight through diet and exercise.  He lost about 84 pounds in six months, which he discusses here:

I know Carnie Wilson (sp?) got gastric bypass years ago but I stumbled upon an ad recently that said she was going under the knife again due to weight regain. I wondered if she was revising to a sleeve or to a DS. Can you do that after a bypass? Just curious if anyone knows anything more about her journey.

 Oh no she's getting paid by a lapband company to get a lapband over her pouch.  Most if they revise from the RNY they revise to the DS.
