A mother who achieved her goal weight through diet and exercise but was still unhappy with her body is almost unrecognisable after spending £18,000 on a mummy makeover.
Charmaine Burgh, 37, from Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, led an unhealthy lifestyle and often found herself eating 3,000 calories per day.
The owner of an aesthetics company decided ‘enough was enough’ and lost four stone, but was still unhappy with the loose skin around her stomach.
She has since achieved her dream size eight body after forking out £18,000 on a tummy tuck and a boob job with an uplift.
Charmaine said: ‘I was a binge eater. I would quite easily consume 1,000 calories for my lunch after skipping breakfast.

‘Sometimes on the weekend, I would have a McDonald’s breakfast and lunch followed by an Indian takeaway for dinner.
‘I couldn’t go a day without chocolate and wine too.
‘I always felt sluggish which prompted me to look at how I could change my lifestyle.’
Initially, Charmaine considered weight loss surgery abroad but she later decided against this idea.
She said: ‘I was going to get everything done in Turkey – including a gastric band or sleeve.
‘But my husband Tom was against it becuse I needed to fix my mindset.

‘It is honestly the best thing I have ever done.’
Charmaine now feels more confident than ever before and has recently wore a bikini for the first time in a decade.
She said: ‘I feel amazing. The surgeon, Mo Akhavani, did the best job ever and he is so professional. I can’t thank him enough.
‘I have so much more confidence and now I am able to put myself out there.

‘I am much more healthier and can do more activities with my son, Alexander.’
