The mom of 5 announced the news of her latest plastic surgery on her Instagram page just hours after undergoing the procedure. Since then she has shared some pretty real-life updates about the healing process.
“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,” Jennifer wrote on Instagram.
She later shared, “I’m going great! I know the first few days looked brutal but remember, it always looks worse before it gets better. And I’m happy to say that I feel fantastic and I’m not even one week out!”
Meanwhile, Jennifer’s RHONJ co-star Jackie Goldschneider recently shaded her previous liposuction surgery.
“If you watch what you eat you don’t need lipo every week #justsayin,” Jackie tweeted.
Jennifer decided not to take the bait when responding to Jackie’s tweet but did throw a little shade of her own.
“I’m not about to go back-and-forth with anyone who is recovering anorexic. I have more respect for the disease than that. You can keep that one #rhonj,” Jennifer tweeted while adding the white flag emoji.
