Mum gets partner to finance tummy tuck and bum lift for Christmas

Mum Donna Lambert, from Billericay, Essex, said she felt ‘disgusted’ with her body after losing eight stone which left her with excess skin.

The mum had previously undergone a gastric band to aid her weight loss, but still didn’t like the way her body looked.

At her biggest, Donna was 18 stone and says she had no portion control as she was ‘greedy.’

After dinner each night, she would have three bowls of cereal.

It was when she started working at a new skincare company that required uniform – which didn’t fit her – that Donna had a wake-up call.

The 33-year-old then decided to get a gastric band, which cost her £8,000 to do in London.

Since having the operation, Donna wanted more work done which she was able to convince partner David to finance.

The doting partner agreed last Christmas and paid £6,700 for a lower body lift, an arm lift and liposuction. The surgeries took place in January this year in Turkey.

Donna now says she couldn’t be happier with her new look.

Donna said: ‘I am now 15 weeks post-op and I feel amazing, I never expected that having this done would mentally help me so much.

‘Some days I am more swollen and that is completely normal, but on the whole, I feel incredible and I have my confidence back. 

‘I am so happy I made the decision to do this, I have never looked back. I am happier than I have been in years and I love my body.’

Donna admits that following her gastric band, she didn’t follow the rules that came with it and remembers melting a bar of chocolate to eat straight after her surgery.

In 2014 Donna gave birth to her son, Beau, six, and two years later she had her daughter, Amelie, four.

Donna says she gained and lost weight with each pregnancy, causing her even more issues with her body confidence.

She said: ‘I had lost so much confidence because of how my body looked, I was actually happier when I was bigger than I was at a lower weight with excess skin.

‘I would stand in front of the mirror every day, staring and touching all of my loose skin. I was disgusted with what I saw in the mirror.

‘I was in a really bad place, and eventually I sat down with my partner, David, and admitted I needed help and told him that I really wanted surgery.

‘I had been doing so much research about it, I had looked up so many different surgeons, looked at pictures of their work, and read endless reviews until I found my surgeon in Istanbul, Turkey.

‘I explained this all to David and he could see how desperate I was to go for it, and he said he would support me and finance my surgery. So on New Year’s Eve last year, I booked it all.’

Donna chose Turkey as the procedure cost £6,700, a stark difference to the costs in the UK which can be around £15k.

Donna recalls that once her surgeries were booked, it was like a switch had been flicked and she started to feel better.

She added: I have no regrets about having my surgeries abroad.

‘I feel and look the best I ever have and I love flaunting my figure in new tight clothes.

‘I’m now a 12 and feel a decade younger.’
