Vicki Gunvalson, a former member of the Real Housewives of Orange County, is taking the phrase “new year, new me” to a whole new level after recently disclosing that she lost 22 pounds. Vicki disclosed that she used a combination of diet and an Airsculpt surgery to lose weight. At Elite Body Sculpture, the veteran, 60, underwent a minimally invasive body reshaping procedure.
Vicki told Us Weekly in a post-op interview-
Cellulite appears stronger when you’re getting thinner. My butt and my legs were running into the same area. So I was in the Hamptons and I ran into LeeAnne Locken and she looked fabulous. I’m like, ‘What in the hell did you do?’ She’s like, ‘I lost weight, and I did AirSculpt.’ I’m like, ‘Liposuction.’ She goes, ‘No, AirSculpt.’
Targeted body parts can be permanently sculpted, their skin made tighter, and their fat removed with AirSculpt. Compared to regular liposuction, which requires six months to cure, this procedure requires healing within 24 to 48 hours. Vicki was able to attend BravoCon just three days after her treatment.
“I lost about 20 pounds from my heaviest two, three years ago,” describing her diet as “intermittent fasting and trying to really limit sugars and things like that.”
She didn’t need to be put to sleep for the surgery, the Bravolebrity gushed. She remarked-
I was really excited ’cause I didn’t have to go under general anesthetic, and they actually cut the bands of the cellulite so they won’t appear anymore.
Cellulite is these bands that appear and push the skin up and [you] get these dimples. So I’m like, ‘Well, get ’em gone. What can we do?’ And [the doctor said], ‘I definitely can improve. I’m not gonna put you back to when you were 20.’ So I had a realistic expectation.
Overall, Vicki is happy with her new appearance. She said-
I’m approaching three months later, super happy with the results. There’s no bruising after about three weeks and I’ll be in a bathing suit and I’ll do my best to be proud of the results. It’s not perfect, but it’s a whole lot better. And that’s what I needed. It’s a whole lot better without going under the knife.
She decided that by combining Airsculpt and dieting, she could achieve her desired weight. She explained-
I lost seven pounds from my two-week checkup to my three-month checkup, but overall I’ve lost about 22 pounds from my heaviest about a year ago. I’m a size 4/6 and I’m 5’8, so I don’t wanna be a size 1 or 2. I’m a big girl. I love to cook. I love to eat. But I do one meal a day and that intermittent fasting really helped me.
Vicki achieved her weight-loss target just in time for her return on The Real Housewives of Orange County. As previously reported, the CEO of Coto Insurance will return to season 17 of the Bravo reality series to liven things up. On the other hand, Vicki will only be on the show for a short time.

The reality star said to Page Six at BravoCon-
I wasn’t cast as a full-time ‘Housewife’ or even a ‘friend of.’ I filmed a scene with Tamra and Shannon which was fun and I miss filming. But nothing more.
In late October, Vicki was spotted filming with former RHOC castmates Tamra Judge, Shannon Beador, and newcomer Jeniffer Pandrati. Bravo cameras followed the ladies as they walked around a beach resort.
Vicki’s comeback elicited varied reactions from admirers on social media. One user said-
“This could be a perfect way for Vicki to come back as a full time housewife in #RHOC if she plays her cards right!”
