90 Day Fiance‘s Angela Deem had lost a lot of weight and the details behind this sudden life change have finally come out.
After having a few surgeries, Deem lost 90 pounds from her previous weight. She opened up about going under the knife, telling Us Weekly that she had a breast reduction, liposuction on her back, and gastric sleeve reduction in Aug.
While talking about her surgeries, Deem mentioned her Nigerian husband Michael Ilesanmi, 32, as one of her main motivations for getting the work done even at the age of 55.

“I’ve always wanted to enhance my look for Michael because of his age, but this journey — people need to know — I felt like I would have died without the weight-loss surgery,” Deem said. “I worried, if I don’t get on the table, I’m gonna die.”
Aside from her health, Deem wanted to do the surgeries for Michael’s sake. It can be recalled that Michael said he didn’t want his wife to get any type of surgery during the 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After? tell-all, but Deem mentioned health-related concerns at the time.
It seems like Michael understood Deem’s reasons for surgery after the tell-all. Alternatively, there is a possibility that his thoughts never really factored into her decision since Deem wasn’t in the business of having her husband ordering her around.
Deem had a rough three-month recovery time after the surgery. She talked about the physical, as well as emotional journey post-op. She also confirmed that the results were worth it, adding that she will continue her weight-loss journey in the future.
