I had a tummy tuck five weeks ago. I have had three children by c-section and my pregnancies caused a lot of stretch marks and flabby skin that would sag over my belly button and incision. Before I had children I was over weight so after my first child I decided to get the weight off. So I lost about 65lbs which gave me even more saggy skin.
No matter how much I would work out I just couldn't get the sag over my c-section scar to go away. I have been very self conscious of my tummy area for the last 12 years.
So I saved my money and when I was told I needed a hysterectomy, I decided to do the tummy tuck at the same time. I am very happy that I did it. It looks great!
Although if you are thinking of having a tummy tuck be prepared for a long recovery time. I am five weeks out from my surgery and I am still very sore on the inside (but I also had a hysterectomy). I am still wearing my compression garment. When I try to go without it (because it really is annoying trying to get your clothes to look right when out in public) by an hour or two I feel like I'm falling apart and need the support. I am still swollen, some days more than others.
Over all I'm very glad that I had the tummy tuck. I actually went out and bought a bikini for the first time since my husband and I were dating. It's an exciting feeling that I don't feel like I need to hide myself from him anymore.
