Plus Size Model Tess Holliday Announces Plastic Surgery Plans on Instagram

Tess Holliday, a size-22 model, has made a name for herself with the #effyourbeautystandards campaign, but recently it seems that she may have had a change of heart when it comes to her own appearance. She recently posted photos on Instagram of meeting with a plastic surgeon. Her caption read:

"Today I had a great conversation with my friend @DrGhavami about what my options are to work on some of the things [the sun] & mothering two children has done to my body. These aren't "flaws" - but they are things that have taken away from what makes me feel sexy in my own skin."

Abdominoplasty, also known as a tummy tuck, is a procedure in which our plastic surgeons remove excess skin and fat from the abdominal area. During the procedure, the abdominal muscles are also sutured together so they have a taut and slim appearance. This is an ideal procedure for women that have sagging skin due to pregnancy or extreme weight loss. Below is an infographic with more information about tummy tucks:
