I Paid for My Niece's Tummy Tuck Without Her Parent's Permission

Jenny's parents refused to let her get a tummy tuck, leaving her with overhanging skin after weight loss. After years of Jenny crying to her about her body, her aunt paid for the surgery as a present for her 18th birthday. Jenny's confidence soared after the procedure, but her mother was furious when she found out, causing a family rift. The aunt is now asking if she was wrong to go behind her sister's back, despite the positive impact on her niece's life. Read on to find out the full story and join the debate: was the aunt an a**hole for paying for the surgery without permission?

A secret tummy tuck for my niece made me a villain 😈

Jenny struggled with emotional eating and obesity due to childhood trauma. After therapy, she lost weight but was left with a saggy belly. Her anti-plastic surgery parents refused her wish for a tummy tuck, but I secretly paid for it on her 18th birthday. Jenny was happy and confident after the surgery, but her mother found out and blamed her for wasting money. I revealed myself as the culprit, but now my sister thinks I'm a villain for warping her child's self-esteem. Was it wrong to give Jenny the surgery she wanted for years? Join the discussion below.
