Buying the Body Beautiful: Plastic Surgery is Calling My Name

Some things in life you can't fix. Others, you can!

Some things in life you can’t fix. Others, you can!

Let me begin by saying that I would have never in a million years thought that I would ever want to have plastic surgery done. Prior to my pregnancies I had a body that I was really proud of. Don’t get me wrong… it wasn’t perfect. I had a tad bit of a belly and no matter the amount of walking I did or do, I have thighs that have their own agenda. My BMI was never what it should be. But even so, I was still happy with my body. When my clothes came off, even the imperfections were in proportion and I loved it. I loved my flawed self.

Fast forward four years, two pregnancies, and several breast infections later. Genetics has not been on my side. Gravity has not been on my side. In fact, the only things that have consistently been on my sides are my breasts. Go figure. And while I lost my tummy bulge fairly quickly the skin it left behind resembles an elephant leg. Don’t laugh. It literally looks like an elephant leg. I realize I might sound silly complaining about these things… but I am finding that the change in my body has really effected my self-esteem and confidence.

So, I’m going to check into a full on mommy package not because I’m vain, but because I want to feel like me again. My “motherhood” body has made me a different person — one that begs for mom jeans and oversized shirts and granny panties.  But the real me, the one inside, wants to be able to look in the mirror and not feel totally changed and deflated. I want to look in the mirror and think, “hey, she’s kinda hot!” I want to honor this body that housed and grew two fabulous children. I want to restore it. And maybe, just maybe some of that fire in me will return too.



Speak Your Mind



  1. I have always struggled with my body image. However, I have never really considered plastic surgery – mostly because I hate needles and hospitals, etc. As I get older, though, (I am rapidly approaching 40), things seem to be sagging more. I am gaining weight no matter what I do and I am less and less satisfied. Would be interesting to find out exactly what is involved and how much it would cost.

      Well after talks with a few friends who have had procedures, I’ve decided I’m definitely going to move forward and start researching. I promise to keep you updated with what I find, how much it costs, and all the other details. I want to be informed and make sure I represent things fairly and accurately. Thanks for posting 🙂

    You do whatever you have to to feel sexy and beautiful MMM. There is no shame in any of this. From the male point of view we love our women to feel confident and sexy because WE find that sexy. For me it’s not about your looks as much as it is about your attitude. Just keepin it real. Seacrest out!

      Well papa, I’m working on it… I really feel like this could be good for us *wink*. I know it will be great for me. Thanks for always supporting me 🙂

  3. I don’t blame you for wanting to look and feel good. You had two babies and take care of them everyday. You deserve it!

  4. Great post. I used to be checking constantly this weblog and I am inspired!
    Very helpful info specifically the final part 🙂 I handle such
    info a lot. I used to be looking for this particular information for
    a long time. Thank you and good luck.

  5. There’s definately a lot to know about this subject. I love all the
    points you have made.

  6. So my question is, do you think your favorite thrifting spots are the norm or unique? I've never been much for thrift shopping, mostly because I don't have the patience to look through ev0#ything.&r16e; But I also often wonder if people who love thrifting either are close to some amazing place or just have a superhero power for finding cool stuff.  Either way, I don't think I got it.
