I decided to have a tummy tuck after having a baby as a gift to myself.  After having five miscarriages within two years then giving birth, I struggled with how my body looked.  One of the greatest gifts that I’ve received is the gift of motherhood, but it came with a price.  

My Tummy Tuck – A Gift to Myself

I truly thought that I would bounce back and get into my size 6/8 jeans in a few short months after having my baby.  However, after being on bedrest for 8 full months, having to eat every two hours to avoid getting sick, and having gestational diabetes I experienced a tremendous amount weight gain.   Not to mention due to my elevated blood pressure I was forced to have a cesarean.  

The cesarean was not only painful, it was damaging to my stomach.  There was no amount of exercise or diet that allowed me to get rid of the sagging pouch of skin.  Several friends suggested a tummy tuck to remove the excess skin that followed my pregnancy.  It took me ten years to muster up the courage, but I am so glad I gifted myself a tummy tuck.


Prior to my procedure I heard so many testimonials.  Some were scary and others inspiring.  Honestly, I was nervous but determined to re-gain my pre-pregnancy figure.  It was not so much just about my size; I just wanted the skin hanging from my belly to be gone.  The procedure was like my cesarean with a less painful recovery.    

There are several options for cosmetic surgery.  You can select a doctor based on a referral, or you can look into a place like Sono Bello.  Sono Bello is a national leader in laser liposuction and body contouring. In just over a decade, Sono Bello has grown into an industry leader with 60+ locations spanning across the United States.


You can opt to have a minimally invasive procedure, or a full mommy makeover.  The pricing is flexible depending on your needs.  I planned my procedure around my bonus.  I knew what I wanted and how much it would cost.  My bonus covered it all.  

If you are considering body contouring or other cosmetic surgeries, I recommend you looking into Sono Bello.  A tummy tuck was one of the best gifts that I have given to myself.  I am so happy I made the investment!
