The mother-of-two chose to have surgery due to sagging abdominal skin after giving birth to her second son 10 years ago.

She has been candid about her journey to change mummies over the past two years, which was carried out by a surgeon in Virginia, USA at a cost of about 15 thousand pounds.

Most notably, Gina revealed in a recent TikTok video that she regrets going under the knife for six weeks – and warned other mummy makeup candidates that they might feel the same way.

Among the challenges after surgery are needing help getting from room to room in the house, needing someone to help with personal toileting, and constant bloating in the abdomen.

“Inflammation can last up to six months,” Gina says in her now-viral video. “Sometimes even up to a year for some people.

“Mine lasts about six months and even after I work out, the inflammation comes back.

“So know that your belly bloat will last, especially if you’re extremely active.”

Her advice for combating post-surgery abdominal swelling is to drink plenty of water and give yourself a lymphatic massage.

Because surgeons work with “super loose skin,” Gina further warns that your scar won’t be “perfect.”

“It can go high on the sides, it can go too low on the sides,” she said. “It won’t be perfect.

“So you have to have that mentality when you go to surgery.

“When you take those bandages off, know it’s not going to be perfect and that’s okay.”

Gina stresses that putting on a mummy’s makeover is a “life-changing decision” and it can go so wrong that it makes you “cry and sleepless at night”.

She added, mothers shouldn’t take the decision lightly and consider how they feel about the massive scars that will stick with their bodies for the rest of their lives.

“You’ll always be able to say you’ve had this surgery,” says Gina. “And others will also be able to speak.

“So if you’re super worried about people seeing you naked, they’ll know you’ve had surgery.

“You really have to weigh the pros and cons.”
