I have a confession to make:
I constantly think about getting a tummy tuck.
"Abdominoplasty is an operation to remove excess skin and fatty tissue from the abdomen and to tighten the muscles of the abdominal wall. Although an abdominoplasty improves body contours and shape it is not a replacement for weight loss. Overweight individuals should lose weight by dieting and postpone all forms of body contouring surgery until they have been able to maintain their weight loss. Frequently, liposuction may be combined with abdominoplasty surgery. The best candidates for abdominoplasty surgery are individuals near their ideal weight who have an excess of fat or skin localized to their abdomen."
Fellow c-section mothers, you know what I mean, right? That SKIN POUCH above the c-section scar? And I've had THREE c-sections.
(Personally, I refer to it as FAPA. Fat Above P*ssy Area. Ahem.)
(Otherwise known as Ugly-Naked.)
(Further referred to as Sex Only With the Lights Off.)
I peruse Boston plastic surgeon websites constantly. Wanting, but hesitant. Eager, but hesitant. Certain, yet uncertain at the same time.
Hubby is nonchalant. The times I complain about my old man belly, he shrugs and says, "So do it. After we fix the truck, that is."
This is not caving to some sort of societal pressure. This is ME. MY BODY. How I feel about it. How I feel about myself when I'm nekkid. Hell, it's only a 10-day recovery period. No one will even notice the difference. Nor would I want them to. Because that's not what this is about.
