This secret of her life Jessica shared with her fans in her new autobiography called Open Book. The tummy tuck she had was to remove the stretch marks and flabbiness of skin which came after her back-to-back pregnancies and deliveries. It was not by any reason for weight loss.

Jessica narrates the whole incident

The singer has detailed the whole story of how the infection took place. She said that in the first place, her doctor had advised her to not go under the knife. He had warned her against the procedure. But she did not heed her doctor’s advice and went ahead with the surgery. She did it as a birthday present to herself on her 35th birthday.

At first, she had a partial tummy tuck. But unhappy with its results, she decided to undergo a complete tummy tuck. She wrote in her memoir:

This surgery was more involved. There was a sense that something was going to go wrong from the get-go, even though I stopped drinking to prepare,” 

Further she narrates that the procedure took two hours more than expected to finish. And following it, she developed a nasty infection. She penned:

I got an infection – colitis – and was vomiting so much I thought I was going to bust my sutures,”
