Although mothers adore their children, many long for the bodies they had before pregnancy. Childbirth can leave sagging skin in the abdominal area and deflated breasts. The number of women receiving Mommy makeovers is on the rise, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. A “Mommy makeover” can include a combination of treatments including tummy tuck, breast augmentation, and breast lift. Women had nearly 112,000 tummy tucks in 2010, an 85 percent increase since 2000; 90,000 breast lifts in 2010, a 70 percent increase since 2000, and 296,000 breast augmentations in 2010, a 39 percent increase since 2000. For mothers considering this type of pampering, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons recommends waiting at least six months to a year after having their last child and being specific about post-baby body goals. To optimize the outcome, if one is trying to lose weight, it is recommended to do so before the procedure.
