Final Inches Patient Katie K. talks about her daughters and her procedure:
Let me start out by saying that I did not have not have this procedure to walk around in mid drift shirts and teeny tiny bikinis. Although believe me, Daddy Warbucks wishes I did! I considered myself to have a pretty good body image of myself beforehand, I just wished to get rid of about a two inch roll over my pants that would not go away!
After telling all of my Mommy friends about my thoughts on having laser liposculpting, the endless questions started. But, no one question really bothered me as much as the, “What will you tell your daughters” question. Jealous old doubty clothes, Mamfia haters, I thought! What was I going to tell my daughters? Well nothing was my first response. Then after thinking about it for a while I knew that 2 of my 3 kids were old enough to probably realize something was going on.
At ages 5 and 3 I probably didn’t have to tell them the whole truth maybe just yet. I had to think for a while about how to be age appropriate and positive. The day before the procedure, I told my daughters that Mommy has a boo boo on my tummy and I was going to go have the doctor fix it. No worries there. Not a single funny look or question. When I came home wearing my garment, I just told them that was my band-aid and it was helping my tummy get better.
One day when my daughters are older and may have some body issues of their own, I will share the full truth then. My hope for my daughters is that they always love their bodies no matter what. But, if they have an issue and have exhausted every other resource to try fix it and it hasn’t work. Then by all means I hope they do something for themselves and fix it and feel good.
