Very fit, but have a tummy I can't get rid of...and the bloating goes up and down too.

I have not had surgery yet - surgery date is May 4th - will update as I go!

My expectations are:
Lose de extra skin.
Disappear the scars.
Give to my body the same shape before my pregnancies.
I want my belly button same as before surgery.
I think it is a good procedure for those who have extra skin and not for them who want to lose weight.
seeking a doctor's certificate.Good luck. more

Is that too much to ask for? lol
