After having one child and then suffering several miscarriages over the next few years my body was shot. I had a worn-out tummy that always looked sort of pregnant because it actually had been for so long. I loved my child, but I hated it when people asked me when I was due with my next one. It was embarrassing and extremely depressing. I had tried very hard to have another baby and I felt like people were either judging me for not having one or excitedly misinformed because of the way my tummy still protruded through clothes. I was diligent with dieting and exercising but perhaps because I was in my early 40's my body was just not coming back.
I decided that I needed professional help to get to where I wanted to be. My self-esteem was low and I felt defeated. A Mommy Makeover at Sunset Plastic Surgery was the right choice for me. I had a tummy tuck and liposculpting around my midsection and legs. The recovery wasn't easy but it was worth it. My doctor prepared me with what to expect so I worked through it and in about 6 weeks I was bikini shopping in Hawaii with my family. It was a lovely vacation and not one person asked me if I was pregnant. 😉
