Undecided About Having a Mommy Makeover
By MrsM on 09 Apr 2012
Hello ladies. I am a married woman soon to be 30 years old. I have two children (9yr old boy & 3 yr old girl). After having my girl I gained a lot of weight, mostly on my tummy. I've been working out but its so hard to tone my stomach. I'm 5' 1" and 145lbs. I always wanted a breast enhancement but now that I had two children I really need a boob job. I breast fed both my kids and it changed my breast. So now I think its worth the money and time for a change. So I went to a surgeon for a consultation for a breast augmentation. When the doc looked at me he notice that I have umbilical hernia. This was a shock for me because my doctor never said anything to me all the times I got checked. I went to two other surgeons and they all said the same thing to me. They also recommended that I get a tummy tuck since I have to repair my hernia. I think it makes sense too because I can knock out everything at once with being on the same anesthesia. I would love to have a tummy tuck because I miss wearing bikinis and having a flat stomach. I really hate wearing tankinis and cover ups ugh...Anyways my husband has been very supportive and is willing on paying for the whole surgery. But my husband thinks that I don't need a tummy tuck he thinks that I can continue working out and I will have a firmer stomach. I disagree with him but I am scared of having a tummy tuck for several reasons. I had both my babies natural and I only have a few stretch marks below my belly button. So I'm worried about having a big scar from the tummy tuck. If any of you ladies had doubts about having the scar can you please share your story with me?
