My man paid over £6k for me to get rid of my mum-tum…it was agonising & I had a load of setbacks but I know I look good | The Sun
A WOMAN has revealed that after three pregnancies and two C-sections, she convinced her husband to splash out over £6,000 on a tummy tuck.
Haley Bland (@haleynotsobland), a mother and hairstylist explained that she had a mummy makeover, to get rid of her saggy mum-tum.
After spending three days a week for the last two years at the gym, trying to get back to her pre-birth figure, Haley eventually decided to have cosmetic surgery to feel like herself again.
She explained that she went under the knife back in December, after waiting almost four years since the birth of her youngest child.
Haley had a tummy tuck with muscle repair and in a recent clip, which she posted on TikTok with the caption ‘Only 5 weeks post op, I can't wait to see where I am 6 months-1 year from now!!’, the mother shared what her stomach looked like before and after going under the knife.
She said: “I’m 5’8 and 176 pounds.

“I told my husband before we had kids, he was fixing whatever he broke.
“It’s ok to prioritise yourself mummas, this is your sign.”
Haley explained: “It was $7,500 [£6,163] in Indiana but it varies state to state so much.”
Her clip has clearly shocked many, as it has quickly amassed 855.6k views.

One person said: “This is great! Some people are definitely jealous over the fact that you were able to do this for yourself. As a mom of twins I think you’re lucky.”
Another added: “I did mine last year after 5 kids. Worth every penny!”
Whilst a third commented: “You look great!”
Meanwhile, someone else asked: “Can exercise work??? I'm really worried about my flat toned stomach just going!” to which Haley explained “This was after working out for two years consistently at the gym, no amount of exercise will get rid of loose skin.”
Haley later confirmed: “I’m in no way telling anyone they need surgery.
“Only saying it’s okay to do so, and not feeling guilty.
“I was still confident and happy before.”
She also noted: “We haven’t always been in a place where this was an option.
“We are very fortunate.”
Haley explained that although she is loving her post-surgery figure, it hasn’t been a smooth sailing journey.
She noted: “The whole first day after I was pretty out of it from anaesthesia/meds.
“Day three and four was rough and I couldn’t stand up straight for five weeks.
“7 weeks later I’m still sore after work or when I stretch the wrong way.
“ I’m still healing. It’s a long recovery though.
“Yes it’s painful, mostly the muscle repair part!
“Patience is key, it’s a long haul type of surgery for sure.”
Haley also highlighted: “NO ONE should get surgery for someone else, it’s a very personal decision that you should do for YOU.
“This was definitely something I wanted for ME.
“My belly would get a little smaller than the first video (it was the end of the night and I was bloated here) but it would just get saggier the more weight I lost.
“I have tried hifu treatments and other things from estheticians, wraps, working out.
“Nothing could fix my loose skin and muscle separation.
