|Middle-age belly fat roll?|
I've had two c-sections, and as a result, there are two-three inches of my belly muscles that have been cut through and sewn together. I think that's part of what makes my belly sag like this picture--so surgery seems like more of a stop-gap than a solution. She may look better now, but what about in ten years? Will the scarring cause more long-term muscle loss? I admit I don't know much about plastic surgery for tummy tucks. I do not know if it even affects the muscles at all, but any surgery is trauma to the body and carries some risk with it.
Then again, maybe the trade-off is worth it to her. I'm just saying it's not my place to judge her motivations. Maybe she has lost weight everywhere else and just needs this to feel good about herself. Want to see the after-picture? I'll show you in a minute. But first...
Ironically, the first place I found this picture was on Explicit Gists and was being used to promote home remedies to reduce belly fat! The title of the picture indicated plastic surgery, so I went digging a little deeper and found the original on the surgery site.
The first site appears to be one of those SEO's* written by someone extremely underpaid. Not only did they dishonestly use a picture that was originally from plastic surgery, not from naturally reducing belly fat, but they failed to give credit for the picture. On top of that, they did not even bother to rename it, so their fraud could be exposed.
|It just might be worth it, after I get down to a proper, healthy weight.|
I think I am going to place the words in that assertion in my side bar, so you may just see it twice. Not that I really think anyone reads the sidebar.
