I had a full abdominopasty done 2 years ago. I am very pleased with the results. However, from the minute I got up from the surgery to date, I suffer from constant shortness of breath. It is very uncomfortable. I have had physicals and checkups to rule out any other problems. I am now convinced that the shortness of breath is because of the tigtning of the abdominal muscles, which in my case being petite was perhaps too much. My breath seems like it is blocked all the time. I am miserable. I almost feel like I wish the tummy tuck could be undone.

Why - To tighten stomach muscles after 2 kids and 2 c-sections

Pros - Tummy looks great now

Cons - Traded off for constant shortness of breath

My question is at this point what options do I have? I do not want to live with this constant breathlessness feeling all the time.

Yes, he is a very good surgeon. But not sure why I landed up with shortness of breath?
