M absolute best friend is suddenly determined to have these done. She's not over weight, but she has that little pooch you get after having your babies and turning 40. She wants to have a tummy tuck and lipo on what she calls her hips, but the Dr said its actually back fat or love handles....

I thought these surgeries were dangerous?? Anyone have any feedback or experience with this?

I need a tummy tuck, but it's like $10K, and other things keep coming up, like kids' college, and the mommy-martyr in me won't allow myself to indulge when I have tuition to pay.
