A mother-of-two has revealed how a 'mummy tummy makeover' helped her feel confident again after she lost 6st. Following two pregnancies, Clare McCartan, 33, from the UK, ballooned to a size 22 and was keen to make a change after being left feeling insecure. But after working hard to get her pre-baby body back and returning to a slim size 8, she was left with saggy skin which resembled that of an '80-year-old.'
