Battling the bulge become a chore after my last child. It was my second c-section and an emergency one - which dashed my hopes of a flat tummy returning!
The pro's was the contouring that made my clothes fit much nicer; the opportunity to sport a two piece swimsuit before I turned 40; the health benefit of the tire going away as well as a regain of some missing self-confidence.
The con's was the price of cosmetic surgery, healing time and the scar (the later worked themselves out). As a personal choice - its one of the many opportunities available for women to reinvent themselves - as we should - as the seasons change for us!
