The mother, who is better known as Mama June, is no longer in control of Alana Thompson, who is known by many as Honey Boo Boo, these days, but she says she would've disagreed if she knew her daughter was going to undergo weight-loss surgery.

Mama June, in an interview, said, "I'm supportive of what Alana wants to do, but I would suggest that she wait until she has reached the age of 18." She further added that Alana did not tell her about her medical plans before deciding to go ahead with them.

It has already been reported that Alana is getting a suture to sculpt her endoscopic sleeves after her 17th birthday next month. While Alana has mentioned that she is unhappy with her weight, June says that this is not a procedure you should jump into without doing your research first.

June has dealt with weight loss surgery in the past but ended up gaining back 100 pounds. According to her, she is going to tell Alana's sister, Pumpkin, that she should wait until the end of the season.

The surgery has been approved by Pumpkin, who is now Alana's guardian, but June adds, "It kind of irks me that pumpkin didn't tell me about the surgery. If Alana wants to do it, she should wait until she turns 18."

June's concern about money played some role in Alana's sudden decision to undergo the non-surgical procedure, but sources close to Alana tell us that the procedure is something she is doing privately, and not for television. As well, we have been told June was not informed about her decision because she doesn't have a relationship with the family.
