I was very unhappy with my stomach after having a c-section. I tried liposuction when I was younger, but it really didn't help the loose skin. My gyn recommended that I have a hysterectomy so decided that I might as well do the tummy tuck at the same time, since I had been tossing this around for a while, but just didn't want to have surgery.
I had a breast lift and replaced my old saline implants with silicone as welle. Also had liposuction of the waist. You really cannot prepare for the pain, but it does get better. I am very happy with the results so far, but am still waiting for the swelling and bruising to go away.
