Abdominoplasty (commonly known as a tummy tuck) removes excess skin and fat around the stomach while tightening the abdominal wall. This surgery is often performed after pregnancy or weight loss, when the skin has become stretched or saggy. A new belly button may need to be surgically created by an umbilicoplastyLiposuction may also be performed, most often on flanks or “love handles." LEARN MORE ›

Hi everyone!! I have been wanting to do this for years!!! Just never thought I would have the money to do it. I had my first son when I was 15 and my lower belly got stretch marks and a saddle bag.

I had a tummy tuck and immediately developed a post op bowel obstruction which nearly cost me my life. After 4 more surgerys and a colostomy bag i found myself regret this decision.

Never in my dreams would I have imagined having 5 children, nor a Tummy Tuck! So glad I did. After my set of twins (7 lbs each!) 2 years ago, things were never the same again.

I wanted this surgery due to years of weight loss and gain which left loose skin that no matter how much exercise my stomach fat stayed.
