I am 37 years old and have had three children. I am 5'2 and weigh 113 pounds. I was very happy with my body except for my adbomen. I had very loose skin and my belly button was herniated.
I decided to have a full tummy tuck even though I am a size 2 and very athletic. It was to only way to get rid of the excess skin.
I now have a flat stomach but I have a big scar all the way across my lower abdomen. My belly button no longer sticks out but it's still healing and looks flat and round.
The recovery was extremely painful and I still wear my compression garmet. I still have to convince myself it was worth it. My Dr., who was excellent, tells me the scar will fade and I will be very happy.
When I first saw the scar I started to cry uncontrolably. But atleast I don't have to look at the droopy skin and the belly button that stuck out. People thought I was still pregnant. Not anymore though.
