Hi RealSelf, I'm a 35, mother of 2 girls (4 & 3). I knew I wanted a TT after my first child, but wanted to wait until I was free and clear of having any more kids.
At first, my husband did not understand, but after much grumbling about not fitting anything and complaining about how unhappy I was about my body, he said he would support my decision to have a tummy tuck and breast reduction (I’ll post more about my breast under the Breast Reduction Topic)
Before the kids, I was a well-toned 5ft-0”, solid athletic build, flat stomach, size 8. After the kids I went to size 12 after the first one and size 14, after the second baby.
I am expecting this surgery to give me the boost in self-esteem and confidence in my body that I once had. Plus I'm looking forward to NOT having to adjust my pants when they rolled down or sew buttons on when the pop. Most of all, I'm looking forward to going shopping and getting my sexy back for me:)
