I gained 60 pounds with each of my two pregnancies and then lost all that weight plus some after each pregnancy. This left me with a ton of saggy belly skin that I could not get rid of no matter how much ab work I did. I was very tired of wearing "suck-it-in" underwear and buying a size up in pants to fit around my belly, to have them sag in the thighs and butt. My breasts were also pretty droopy after having breastfed my son for a year. When I finally decided to look into a tummy tuck, I learned that the saggy belly was due to the fact that my abdominal muscles had separated- common with pregnancies and not fixable without surgery. I decided that since I was being put under for the tummy tuck, I may as well have my breasts fixed at the same time.
It was worth every penny! I am so pleased with my results. I had silicone gel breast implants put in but decided not to have them lifted due to the possibility of loss of nipple sensation. The implants filled out the loose skin and they look amazing. My tummy.. well, the pictures will speak for themselves. It's such a huge difference. And I had a bit of liposuction on my sides to get rid of the bulges and make my figure smoother. The pain was very manageable. In fact, I cannot think of a single 'con' to this surgery. All pros! I fit better in clothes, I FEEL amazing and I am so self confident! I am 13 weeks out from surgery and still experiencing a little swelling if I do too much, especially if I work out too hard, but that's pretty understandable with such a major surgery. I'll gladly deal with a little swelling here and there to be rid of the 'belly flap'!
