American singer Mariah Carey reportedly went under the knife to get her 'slim' figure back.
Carey caused a stir on social media when fans noticed that the We Belong Together singer looked 'slimmer than usual'.
The singer left fans shocked when they heard the news that she had undergone weightloss surgery.
Sources close to the singer said that she is currently recovering after having gastric sleeve surgery.
Gastric sleeve surgery is a medical procedure that reduces the stomach to about 15 percent of its original size. According to WebMD, the stomach is a lot smaller and this will help people lose weight. "With a smaller stomach, you will feel full a lot quicker than you are used to."
The insider told Entertainment Tonight that Carey struggled with her weight and it would often upset her.
The source confirms that the singer is happier since having the surgery.
'She's happy with this new chapter in her life."
