Mmmm, I would love a tummy tuck, but.......

  1. I could really use a tummy tuck. All of my babies were quite large, and I always looked like I was carrying twins. I've lost quite a bit of weight in the last couple of years, but no luck with the abdomen (I have a existing disease that causes me to put on weight in my abdomen and waist, and it just won't go away even with diet and exercise).

    Anyhow, about how much do they cost (I know there are different ones, I would need the works )? Personally if I had the money I would probably do it, but secrectly I am afraid to go under the knife. Anyone else out there ever had one, and do you have any regrets? Boy do I feel vain posting this

    I don't think you are vain. I plan to have one myself hopefully next May. They are one of the most common procedures done so any Board Certified Physician should do fine. Go to the internet and type in Tummy Tucks. That way you will get a whole bunch of info.

    I would love to get one too. I've done a little research and in my area it seems to be around 5k give or take. That may be off due to my sources, lol!

    I informed my family a while ago that for my 40th I wanted one. I figure I have goven them plenty of notice. I figure they all owe it to me to put stuff back where it was before they all stretched it out.
