Cosmetic surgery boosts US yummy mummy trend
18 February 2010The role of modern motherhood is changing, with more mums turning to cosmetic surgery to embrace a sexier image of themselves. Celebrity mums like Christina Aguilera and Victoria Beckham are inspiring more women to turn to plastic surgery to keep looking their best, whether that means a boob job to reduce swelling after childbirth or liposuction to get rid of unwanted fat. STL Today reports that there are increasing opportunities for mothers of all ages to show off their looks in the modern world, including a new dedicated pole dancing studio set up in the United States that teaches a class specifically for 'Hot Moms.' Owner Michelle Mynx said: "I think it's really important that women understand that sexuality and motherhood are not mutually exclusive." One woman who attended the class said she was looking for a way to keep enjoying her sexuality after motherhood. "I turned 40 and freaked out," she explained. "I want to enjoy sex and my body, and that's why I'm here." Cheryl Levine, an instructor at the academy, teaches a class - Hot Moms - specifically aimed at mothers. She has a master's degree in art therapy and once worked in commodities on the Chicago Trading Floor. She explained: "This class is about building strength. "Your sexiness is going to come from feeling strong." It was also recently revealed that more women in the UK were choosing breast reduction following pregnancy, inspired by celebrities such as Ulrika Jonsson who reduced from an oversized E cup to a more natural C.
