Star Jones has admitted to having gastric bypass in 2003. According to Oprah.com, that year, Jones had ballooned to 307 pounds and was diagnosed as morbidly obese. She lost 160 pounds over three years, but denied for years before finally revealing that she had surgery.

Carnie Wilson has resorted to weight-loss surgery another time to shed the pounds.

People.com reported that Wilson went under the knife on Jan. 18 for a lap-band surgery some 12 years after she lost 150 pounds through gastric bypass surgery.

The magazine learned that the 43-year-old singer had a silicone band placed around her stomach and has lost 30 pounds and is still losing more.

It was the right decision for me and I'm doing really well so far, Wilson told the mag. It's all about taking good care of myself.

TV Guide reported that Wilson did regain some of the weight from her 1999 gastric bypass surgery. She also appeared on VH1's Celebrity Fit Club in 2006 in order to drop a few pounds. She has long struggled to lose post-pregnancy pounds after having daughters, Lola, 6, and Luciana, 2.

Wilson's doctor was the reportedly the one who advised the singer to consider having the gastric band because she regained two-thirds of her weight. Her blood-sugar level was also increasing and she was in danger of developing diabetes, according to TV Guide.

But Wilson isn't the only celebrity who has been under the knife in order to shed some pounds. Others like Sharon Osbourne and Star Jones have used surgery to help their weight loss. Start the slideshow to see some of the celebrities who have undergone weight-loss surgery.
