Saved By The Bell actor Mario Lopez went under surgery for his torn biceps, days before the 71st Emmy Awards. The actor/host added a humorous touch to the accident by addressing his back-to-back Emmy appearance in a cast. 

Adding Humor To Injury

Only days before the 71st Emmy Awards, the 47-year-old took to his Instagram to reveal that he tore his biceps while sparring and underwent plastic surgery to fix it. 

Through the post, the actor let his fans know that the surgery was a success. Adding to this revelation, the actor left a humorous confession that he wasn’t 25 anymore, and maybe he had to take it down a notch. 

His caption read:

Evidently, I’m not 25yrs old anymore... Tore my biceps sparring. Might have to take it down a notch. Surgery was a success. Thank you Dr. Itamura! #GettingOldSucks #StillAKidAtHeart #TherapyHereICome

In the post, the actor uploaded a bunch of videos of him before and after surgery.

Lopez also posted a throwback picture of last year's Emmys, where he was rocking a leg cast for his torn Achilles. The actor in the caption gave away that this year he would appear with an arm brace. Adding humor to his injuries, the actor wrote, "Let's hope next year I'm not rocking a neck brace or body cast!"
