Has having kids left you wondering what has happened to your body? You are not alone. Woman all over are joining the “mommy makeover” trend. The mommy makeover is when women have multiple plastic surgery procedures designed to restore or even improve post pregnancy bodies. This usually consists of a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) and breast enhancement, but can also include things such as buttocks lifts, liposuction and labiaplasty as well.
Everybody Loves Raymond star Patricia Heaton, Moesha star Shar Jackson and Extra co-host Dayna Devon have all openly discussed having procedures done. Most women who get mommy makeovers aren't striving for a new look. Rather, they are simply trying to restore their bodies to their pre-childbirth (or a little better) condition.
There are benefits for patients who do the procedures together. The one benefit is saving money. By combining multiple procedures the cost can be reduced. The other major benefit is the recovery time is basically the same for one procedure or two. These are some of the reasons the mommy makeover is so popular. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons mommy makeovers are increasing five times faster than other surgery procedures. If you are frustrated with your post-pregnancy a mommy makeover may be just what the doctor ordered.
