Alana Thompson’s mother, Mama June, is not in favor of the 16-year-old undergoing weight-loss surgery. The reality star, with the approval of her guardian and sister, Laura “Pumpkin” Efird, revealed her intention to undergo a $13,000 weight-loss surgery with her boyfriend. Pumpkin, the 22-year-old daughter of Mama June, assumed guardianship of Alana Thompson after her mother was arrested, along with her boyfriend, on drug-related charges. The decision was agreed upon by her father, Mike “Sugar Bear” Thompson, and Mama June herself.
Not long after news broke of the 16-year-old’s intention to undergo weight-loss surgery, her mother made it clear that she did not support the decision in any way. Mama June stated that Honey Boo Boo was too young and said she feared that the main reason for the choice was money.

Mama June has just revealed that she is not in favor of Honey Boo Boo’s upcoming slimming procedure. The reality star is not currently the 16-year-old’s legal guardian, but if she were, she revealed that she would have disapproved of the idea long ago.
The mother of four gave an interview to TMZ and revealed that she would be in favor of the surgery if her daughter waited a little longer before deciding. “I’m in favor if Alana wants to have this surgery, but I would say she should wait until she’s 18,” she said.
Mama June also revealed that neither Pumpkin nor Honey Boo Boo had told her about the surgery before deciding to have it. She said, ““It kind of bothers me that Pumpkin didn’t tell me. If Alana wants to do it, she should wait to sign her own paperwork at 18.”
