    I've had substantial laser treatments to remove my freckles on my face and arms. I've always wanted to get rid of them and while I still have a few more treatments that I need doing on my arms, my face is done. It's absolutely amazing. While the laser removes pigment you get the bonus of facial rejuvenation so I also got this really bright and dewy complexion with less lines. For the first time ever people started approaching me and commenting on my skin and asking what foundation I was wearing- I wasnt wearing any! The dewy effects lessen over time but your skin remains clear as long as you don't go back into the sun without sunblock. Every year I plan to get a series of booster sessions just to ward off some ageing. Once you do this laser you realize that not a single anti-pigment cream or anti ageing cream works. Other than that I'd not do anything else - I particularly hate the injectibles and Botox - I've never seen it done where it looks natural

    To say everybody's bits go back to normal or everybody has CS over hang is a bit over the top. It's like saying the horoscopes are spot on because we are all split into categories!

    Anyway sorry to jump in there's my bit have a nice day
    Agree with this - although I haven't had a c-section and had a vaginal birth, I wouldn't necessarily be opposed to it in the future. My abdominal muscles were totally screwed through pregnancy alone. I had a pretty traumatic vaginal birth and basically tore/was cut from there to you know where and it wasn't all natural birthing beauty for me. I think i may consider opting for c/a next time. It's a pretty personal decision and I wouldn't pay anyone out for going either way.

I don't believe your tummy ever does after a CS and you certainly loose your abdominal strength, from what I've heard in discussion with friends whom have had CS and a thread on here some time back of posters showing their CS bellies made me believe that all the more. I was determined to avoid a CS at all costs unless it was an absolute emergency. I just wouldn't choose to be left with a scar over a vaginal birth.
    My abdominal strength is no less than it was pre-kids. I have a thin white line that is slightly more taut than the rest of my belly, but really my barely visible stretch marks are more noticeable and I would've had those either way.

    Your vaginal births may not have caused permanent changes, but I know many others who will never be the same down there, even with multiple surgeries to fix it.

    It's different for each individual and even each birth.

    I would absolutely have CS if I could afford it. Why? Because I am lucky to make my own choices about my own body and after babies I would love a few things tweaked. As for a pp saying vachinas go back to shape, some do but my neighbour had a lahhhbia that was almost torn off and significant other damage. CS was a great choice for her

    We are talking about cosmetic surgery. VB, CS, VBAC, elective either way your having a baby?! That's hardly the same as fillers and some Brazilian butt implants. Lol sorry just seems a bit off topic.. Talking tummy tucks and labiaplasty is on topic if you wanna go that direction.

    Drama...

    Yes it's pretty sad to read about so many body/self-confidence issues.

    All the media have done a great job at making women feel like they should have that standard lean and fit body of a 20yo. :-(

    Did Dove do that marketing campaign here with real women in underwear? I loved it...!!

    I would love a breast reduction and lift and maybe a tummy tuck after I'm finished having babies. For those who think it's a simple vanity, I don't think you can really understand someones shoes until you've walked in them.

    Pre-baby, my b00bs were 10C, post baby, they're an incredibly saggy 12E and I feel terrible. They are heavy, ugly from scarring with so much growth, and simply not how I see myself. My stomach has a fair bit of saggy skin and more stretch marks than I've ever seen on anyone. I feel like my body has been ravaged. I don't think those who were lucky enough to bounce back post baby really understand how heartbreaking it is to live in a body you no longer recognise. It's not just vanity, it's being able to recognise myself when I look in the mirror.

    I don't care if it's real or fake, if I as an individual am happy, that's all that matters. It's not for society - I wear a bra and loose tops and the world would never know - and it's not for my husband, it's for ME!

    I would love a nose job. There is nothing wrong with it that requires medical correction, it is just a bad looking nose.

    I just can't see me ever being in a place where I would have the money for it, I could get a loan or something but then I would feel guilty for taking that money away from my family. I am pretty sure my DH would not be supportive either.

    I don't think I would ever get cosmetic surgery, but I never say never!

    I definitely have flaws but I find I can dress to my shape to hide the bits I don't really like.

    I would love to get laser skin resurfacing though - a bad bout of teenage acne has left my entire face red and scarred and I feel incredibly self conscious without make up.
