I am a 43 year old mother of five. I go to the gym 6 times a week, I am at my goal weight and have done everything in my power to get in shape and lead a healthy lifestyle. I am 5'4 and weigh 120 pounds. I have always been extremely insecure about my stretch marks and the extra skin around my abdomen. I also had a diastasis (tear in my abdominal muscle) that kept me from acheiving a six pack.
I am only 9 weeks post op but it is the best thing i have evr done. They removed 12 inches of skin from me that weighed almost five pounds, and repaired the tear in my muscle. I will be hones the recovery was tough. My mom came for three weeks and it was a huge help.
I feel great now I am back at the gym and in the best shape of my life. I currently wear between a size 0 and 2 and absolutley love my body. I still have some stretch marks but compared to before they are nothing. I would highly recommend this procedure.
