Rise in demand for tummy tucks and liposuction as summer approaches
09 March 2011Cosmetic surgeons have noticed a rise in the number of women enquiring about tummy tuck surgery, liposuction and breast augmentation in the run up to summer. New Jersey plastic surgeon, Dr Christopher Godek, said: Recently, we have seen an increase in the number of women choosing plastic surgery to help them remove signs of pregnancy and childbirth so they look better in summer wear. Sometimes this series of procedures is known as the Mommy Makeover. It combines a tummy tuck with liposuction and breast augmentation. Experts are advising that women considering these procedures book in soon, to give them enough time to have fully recovered before they slip on their summer clothes. Surgeons also recommend that only those women who are not planning to have any more children undergo the combination of procedures, and that these women should be close to their ideal weight and be in full health.
