My tummy affected the way I dressed , and the way I felt about myself . I wanted to be able to wake up in the morning and think “ I like being me ” and actually mean it .
Jane ’ s Story
Age 46 , Essex Tummy Tuck Surgery
I chose to have a tummy tuck because I was extremely self conscious about the way my tummy looked . After three pregnancies and having my appendix out , I had a nasty scar , lax muscles and loose skin that no amount of dieting or exercise would restore my pre-baby belly .
I ’ ve been married for 20 years with 3 children , and we have recently adopted triplets , who are all autistic . I love all of my children but it can be quite isolating and I wanted to do something for me , which would boost my confidence and help me feel good about myself again .
Amir and the Bella Vou team were absolutely fantastic and they ’ ve completely understood where I ’ m coming from . Bella Vou really stood out to me in every way . Although some people can be judgemental about cosmetic surgery , I ’ d encourage people to do what they think is best for themselves . It ’ s not stupid to do something to improve your outlook on life .

I didn ’ t realise how young I ’ d look ! The results are absolutely fantastic . My stomach is tight and flat again , the way it was before I had my babies . It looks like it did when I was 19 . It ’ s been a massive change for me . The first time I went shopping I bought myself a bikini which was a big thing for me . It was nice to be able to buy the correct size clothing for my body , rather than buying bigger sizes for my belly . It ’ s a fantastic feeling to be able to wear whatever I want , rather than having to put things back on the hanger because they don ’ t suit me .
Amir and all the wonderful team made my procedure so enjoyable and lot easier than I ’ d imagined it would be . I felt safe from the beginning , and they gave me an exceptional result .
