Carnie Wilson has once again undergone weight-loss surgery. Twelve years after the singer had gastric bypass surgery and dropped 150 pounds, she elected to have a lap-band procedure to lose more weight.
The surgery, which reduced her stomach to approximately the size of a golf ball, took place on Jan. 18. (During the procedure, doctors wrap a silicone band around the stomach until it's a small pouch.) Wilson, 43, says she has already lost more than 30 pounds.
"It was the right decision for me, and I'm doing really well so far," Wilson tells People. "It's all about taking good care of myself."
The timing of the surgery coincides with the release of Wilson Phillips upcoming new album, Dedicated, and a TV Guide Network reality series following the group, Wilson Phillips: Still Holding On.
Wilson admits that she has struggled to lose the weight she gained after the birth of her two daughters, Lola, 6, and Luciana, 2, with her musician husband Rob Bonfiglio, 44.
"Having children derailed me a bit," Wilson told People in 2010 of her weight struggles. "I'm just frustrated with these pounds."
Wilson Phillips' new album comes out April 3 and their series premieres on the TV Guide Network on April 8.
