Im 29 and a mommy of a 6 year old little girl and a 3 year old little boy. I love my kids, but they really did a number on my body :-( After I had my daughter on 2006, I was completly depressed over how much my body changed. Im not saying I had a perfect body before, but after giving birth my stomach was sagging and covered in bright red stretch marks.
After having my son in 2009, it only mad it worse. I dieted and lost alot of weight but that stupid belly buldge would not go away.. After doing research I learned that it most likely would not go away with out surgery.
I just went to my first consultations on tuesday and I met with 2 different plastic surgeons. After hearing from both of them that I was the perfect canadit for a tummy tuck and that I would probably look better after the surgery thenI did prior to having kids, I got really excited! To hear that this mess could be fixed was the best news Ive had in a while. It's amazing how somthing like this could mess with a persons self esteem... I havnt set a date yet, but Im hoping to get it done October 2, 2012, just got to crunch some numbers first.
Im hoping after the surgery I will feel better about myself. Im excited about the surgeon I have decided to go with, I have complete confidence him him and his work! I feel like I have done so much research on this, Im up so late most night researching surgeons and looking at pics and credentials, however after meeting with Dr, Motykie I know he is the right surgeon for me.
Im nervouse and excited for the actually procedure, nervouse about the pain and how my kids are going to handle not being able to be there normal crazy self around me, and at times I feel like Im being selfish, like I shouldnt be spending this amount of money on myself, but I have been through alot these last 5 years between babies and trouble in my marriage, I just feel that I deserve this.
I have sacraficed alot of myself these past few years for my family and so Im hoping know one will hold this against me after I do it. Heres hoping for great results and that I reach my goal of getting it done in October :-)
