Mommy Makeover: Just as popular in the U.K. as it is in the U.S.
Plastic Surgery Practice reports that two out of five women would consider breast or body rejuvenation surgery following childbirth. A British-based television show called My Face My Body informally collected data that showed that 39% of women would consider plastic surgery after childbirth. The study also showed that 57% of women would even undergo surgery while still in the hospital immediately following labor. While breast and body contouring surgery is more appropriately performed in a delayed fashion, here are the top body concerns for new moms:
• Weight gain-34%
• Stretch marks-24%
• Loose skin-21%
• Sagging breasts-7%
An overwhelming 93% of women reported that regaining their pre-baby body was a priority.
According to the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (BAAPS), breast surgery is the second most popular invasive cosmetic surgery in the UK. Liposuction was the most popular. Oftentimes women in the 30s and 40s undergo breast augmentation, breast lifting, or breast reduction to reverse breast sagging and deflation that commonly occurs following breastfeeding. Pregnancy often takes a tremendous toll on a woman’s body and health, even for moms who maintain a regular diet and exercise routine during the forty weeks of gestation.
The term “mommy makeover” is used to refer to any combination of cosmetic procedures that work to restore a mother’s pre-pregnancy figure. This can include a breast augmentation, breast lift, breast augmentation with lift, breast reduction, liposuction, umbilical hernia repair or abdominoplasty.
