Liposuction is an invasive procedure used to improve body contour by removing areas of fat that've been resistant to diet and exercise. It's important to note that lipo is not intended to significantly reduce weight, cellulite, or sagging skin. Here's how it works: Thin tubes called cannulas are inserted into the body, dislodging fat deposits that are then suctioned out. Lipo can be done on various body parts including the abdomen and waist, hips and thighs, and the cheeks, chin, and neck.

No matter how low my body fat percentage I've always had a tummy and I've always been very self conscious of it.

After the birth of my second son I knew I wanted to get work done. He was an emergency c-section, but I was advised that I was a candidate for a tummy tuck.

After a total abdominal hysterectomy at 43 which loosened my abdominal muscles and threw me into menopause, I immediately lost my waistline and over time my figure continued to deteriorate.

If I was going for it, I was going all the way. No excuses here about kids, exercise, or medical issues. By the time you're 40, even if you weigh the exact same as when you were 27, things tend to shift. Every woman experiences this and deals with it in different ways. The hot bod from your...
