My experience was great all in all. The day of surgery I was very scard and almost walked out, but because my nurse & Dr.assured me that everything would be fine I did it! I am so glad that I did it. The cons would be just not knowing the prep for after surgery. There was a lot of bleeding so use old sheets and jammies you don't care about. Ask a lot of questions. The pros would be of course the way it looks! I'm not feeling the extra skin anymore from my 2 c-sections, it's great!
