“This [stomach] is what we’re still struggling with.

“Some people, they come out of surgery and their [belly is] flat, maybe just have a little bit of swelling, but they’re ok, some people end up like me, some people end up worse.

“So I’m documenting this and showing that not all tummy tucks are the same, because mine definitely is not.

“If you can see all this [loose skin], I’m not flat, however, it is very numb and it is full of fluid.

“You can feel the fluid in my belly, it’s not just fat hanging off my belly – yes, there might be some fat but I’m telling you, this is bloated.

“I’m still a little sore to the touch, nothing crazy but I’m still feeling a bit of pain when I’m getting lymphatic massages.

“It’s still a bit exhausting to do certain things – putting on my faja [post-surgery garment], I feel like I’m out of breath.

“When I put my faja on, my body is snatched, everyone immediately can tell that I got surgery done, so it feels really good.

“My stomach is still numb, it's a tingly weird sensation.

“Overall, month one has been good, I went into a tummy tuck thinking I’d be back to work in ten days, everything would be fine.

“I went to work three days after having a baby and one week after having a baby before (I’ve had multiple children), so I thought this was gonna be a breeze – nothing.

“The pain after the first three days – I’d rather go through birth multiple times.

“It’s a lot more difficult than I thought, the recovery at the beginning was not a pretty sight, I was a vegetable for two weeks.

“So I’m doing much better now.” 

In a follow-up clip, the mother went into detail about the pricing of her surgery.

She explained: “I went to Miami, it’s not very far from me – it was about $10,000, that was a tummy tuck, it came with lipo of the flanks, which is the sides, I didn’t even know I needed that but it was included.

“I had a breast lift and then they took off the extra skin.” 

TikTok users were very complimentary of the mum’s new body and shared their advice in the comments. 

One person said: “You should ask your surgeon to try to drain the fluid out, they can do that with a needle and you’ll feel SO MUCH BETTER.” 

Another added: “You look amazing! I wish I could afford the surgeries.”

A third commented: “I’ve read that the swelling can take a few months to go completely down. 💕. You look great!”
