Share your story about why you considered and ultimately had cosmetic surgery.

When I had my first son I was very skinny but after had him I got a lot of extra skin. I had three more children and my stomach never went back to how it was. I would work out but it never went back in place. My dresses never fit, I always had a muffin or doughnut stomach and I always had to wear an abdominal binder to cover up my ugly stomach.

How did your friends and family feel about your decision to have a procedure?

My husband is the one that told me to get it . My sister was very happy for me. My friends were very happy for me but I think that they wanted to see the results so the could fix themselves. They thought that it cost too much but I told them if they think like that they would never do a thing. I told them that they have financing plans.
