I’ve decided to let you guys in on a personal decision that I’ve been contemplating with ever since I had my fifth child. A tummy tuck. It wasn’t an easy decision. To be honest, I was scared, scared to bite the bullet and actually do what I said I was going to do all these years. You know how sometimes we just talk shit. But for me, Especially now, since I’ve lost so much weight, I have a lot of excess loose skin that can only be removed with surgery. You may wonder how I can have my husband, someone so personal to me, do this invasive procedure. It’s not about the cost. Thank God, I have the blessings to go to any doctor I want. And I’ve talked about this with him thoroughly , and do you know what he tells me? “No one will ever look after you, take the meticulous time necessary, and go above and beyond for you the way I will...” And he’s right. Not only Am I smitten,but I was sold. He is the only one I want to do this for me. I will keep you posted on my recovery and feel free to ask as many questions as you want. I will try to answer through all my grogginess @aydinplasticsurgery #tummytuck #rhonj #plasticmakesperfect

Jennifer turned to her husband, Dr. Bill Aydin, to perform the operation.

“You may wonder how I can have my husband, someone so personal to me, do this invasive procedure. It’s not about the cost… I’ve talked about this with him thoroughly, and do you know what he tells me? ‘No one will ever look after you, take the meticulous time necessary, and go above and beyond for you the way I will...’ And he’s right. Not only Am I smitten, but I was sold. He is the only one I want to do this for me.”

Since the surgery, Aydin has been documenting her recuperation on Instagram, and posting video of everything from her drainage bags to compression socks.

The 42-year-old also opened up to Hollywood Life, saying, she lost 25 lbs. prior to the surgery.

“Being the wife of a plastic surgeon, I know that the way to have the best result [with a tummy tuck] is when you’re able to lose the most amount of fat,” she said. “And, I was thick for a while after Olivia, so it wasn’t something that was on my radar. I still never considered it until I felt I was thin enough. But, once I lost all the weight, all of the stretching my skin did with Olivia became an inconvenience and very physically apparent in my clothing.”

She added, “The recovery process for a tummy tuck is definitely a commitment. You have to make sure that you don’t have anything on your plate for the next couple weeks. I’m definitely hunched over, but I’m walking around more than I thought I would. It’s not as bad as I had anticipated.”
