Plastic Surgery

Posted by Mandy at 12:00 PM

One of my new favorite fantasies is saving thousands of dollars in order to go to a glorious doctor that can put my body parts back to the places they once were. You know.. before my 8 pound boys camped out in there.

I've discovered through the past couple of years that several of my friends have had nips, tucks, and implants here and there. I had no idea! I'm so out of the loop! Well if they can do it...

Can I just say how frustrating it is to lose all of your "baby weight" only to be left with 'that' stomach? You know the one... no matter what you do.. it just won't go anywhere. Not to mention lovely stretch marks. Nice. I think I've come to the conclusion that, yes.. one day.. I will get a tummy tuck. I know, I know. It's major surgery. It's expensive. You could DIE for Pete's sake! Yeah, but in the end you can wear a bikini again - if you are so inclined. Or lay down at night without having your stomach lay down beside you. Whatever floats your boat.

A ton of my friends long for breast implants. I don't get that... I had mega-boobs when I was nursing and I was not a fan. In all honesty, I thought they made me look fat. Maybe that's b/c I had just given birth and was fat... so what do I know. If I could get a doctor to do a two-fer.. maybe I'd consider something a bit bigger than I am now. Not stripper material.. but "Hey, it doesn't look like you've nursed gigantic babies! How'd you do that?!" sized. I dunno... how superficial should I really get here?

Am I the only  mom that really thinks seriously about plastic surgery to get back what you once had? If money were no option, would you do it?

Ah, yes...I call it "the mommy pouch". :)

I have a thing about putting stuff IN my body, but I've thought about having stuff sucked out. Have a great weekend!

Oh I'm so with ya. I had a c-section to get out my 8lb 14oz chunk a monk, so I have "that stomach" now too. Plus, I'm super covered in stretch marks. I'm 10 pounds lighter than I was when I got pregnant, but somehow my old pants still don't fit.

I'm wondering if they can just loop it in when I have my next kid. I'm sure I'll need a c-section then too.

Nina, my OB/GYN said that he could do a mini tuck after my csection last time.. but I was't sure I was done having babies so I declined. Seriously regretting that decision now that i know we're done with. lol I do know that's controversial.. but he's done a lot of them it seems. I've heard of other dr's doing the same thing.

Since my son weaned my boobs are shrinking! They are smaller than my pre-children boobs. Right now I'd take a boob job.

And in 80 days I'll tell you in P90X works on mom pouch!

Thanks, KT. I'm not unhappy with my weight or size.. it's just the skin that I can't do anything about. No amount of weight loss takes it away.. trust me.. I've gotten drastic with it and natta. If anything it made it worse b/c there wasn't as much fat to pad it. lol
