    Hi all

    Wondered whether anyone has had any cosmetic surgery since losing weight or is thinking about it?

    I'm planning a tummy tuck in April this year, going over to prague as it's much cheaper! Would love to hear other people's experiences/opinions.

    Thanks x

    Be careful with cosmetic surgery done abroad. Find out what happens if it goes wrong i.e. whether they will take you back and correct the mistake and whether the doctor is certified and of the same standard as cosmetic surgeons here.

    I won't go down the cosmetic surgery route. Just turned 22 late last year so am going to work hard at the gym and it should hopefully pay off. Am also quite scared of cosmetic surgery, or any surgery really, too many risks.

    Thanks for the replies.
    I've been researching the op for many many months now and have been in close contact with my surgeon. I'm going to Prague to a clinc called Prague Beauty, i've heard lots of amazing stories from that clinic and a client of my CD has just come back from there after having a tummy tuck, she loved the results and thought the clinic and staff were amazing, i'm confident that i've chosen the right place. The price is right (lol) and i'm sooooo looking forward to it. I'm also going to sneak in some liposuction aswell while im there, might as well make the most of it!!!

    Penny, my boyfriend has offered to pay half of my surgery bill but i'm not taking it, it's my fault I need surgery in the first place, so it's me who's going to get the loan out and pay for it myself!!! (oh jesus, I hate getting credit)!!! xx

    SD1722 - do you mind me asking how much it costs? I'm thinking about it after I've lost my weight as my c-section has left me with a baby-belly overhang...yuck

    Hi Karen, it's costing me £3800 and thats for a full tummy tuck and 2 areas of liposuction. The price also includes return flights to prague, 6 night stay (2 in clinic, 4 nights in 4* hotel), a driver to pick u up and take u back to the airport and obviously all of the pre op tests etc. If you looked at having it done here, it would cost double. The clinic i'm going to has had numerous good reviews and the surgeon has sent me his CV etc so im confident it's going to be fab xx

    yes definitely, i lost 10 stone in 8 months and because it came off so quickly it meant that the skin didnt really get time to spring back to how it should do! x
