What motivated me to go for this procedure was to feel better about myself. After my pregnancy with my now 6 year old daughter my belly was a saggy, stretch mark mess. There are more pros than cons to this procedure the obvious cons would be the pain following the surgery for about a week but after that it is all pros. more
